Vintage Inspired Cape Cottage

We met the owner of this charming Upper Cape cottage when she bought one of our custom kitchen islands a few years back. We realized we shared a similar design aesthetic and began work on a fresh new design for the outdated kitchen in her treasured vacation home.

Given that the kitchen was housed in a single story structure with a steep gabled roof, we immediately decided to remove the existing low ceiling to create a light and open cathedral space. Reclaimed pine beams that were installed as structural ties, along with the painted shiplap boards that clad the gable ceiling, helped to define the modern farmhouse feel that the client was hoping for.

We added a larger window with an arched transom above the fireclay farm sink to let the summer light pour in.

Industrial Kitchen Island

IMG_1402

This 2’x6′ kitchen island was custom made using a thick reclaimed pine top, and vintage industrial steel machine legs. It features a large working metal drawer salvaged from the historic Worcester Vocational High School. The island is 36″ high (countertop height) and the top is finished with tung oil for a food-safe prep surface.

Hand Painted Cabinet

_MG_9089 2

We hand painted and distressed this vintage corner cabinet with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. We wanted to match our client’s pale blue damask wallpaper, so we mixed a custom color using French Enamel, Dried Lavender and Grain Sack. We added bead board paneling to the back of the cabinet to add even more country detailing. To finish and seal the paint, we used Miss Mustard Seed’s antiquing wax, and this stuff will literally give life to your milk paint projects! _MG_9095

There’s something about doing a milk paint project that is so serene and calming. Hand painting each carved leaf on this cabinet was almost meditative. The ease with which each flake of paint chips off in just the right place is so satisfying, as is the perfect soft sheen you get from polishing on the antiquing wax. With milk paint, it really just seems like you can’t get it wrong – the paint knows what it wants to do.
