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 We realized we shared a similar design aesthetic and began work on a fresh new design for the outdated kitchen in her treasured vacation home.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.

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.

Hundred Acre Design Process

About a third of all the furniture that Hundred Acre creates are commissioned pieces in which a customer has asked us for a customized item to suit their specific needs, color palette and/or size restrictions. We enjoy the process of designing with our customers and welcome their ideas and feedback along the way. After we understand what our customer wants, and we have settled on a budget, we create a drawing that shows exactly what the piece will look like, so there are no surprises when the piece arrives at your door.


Here is an example of a design drawing that our customers may receive as part of the Hundred Acre Design Process:
