While our kitchen and dining room maybe a bit old fashion, it also has that country charm to it, which I love! When I get bored with my kitchen, and want to change it up a bit, I just do some re-a-ranging with a few of the small appliances, my canisters, and other knick knacks and decorations... and that goes for my bakers rack, plus my buffet hutch in our dining room.
These pictures were taken back in 2010. Since then I have changed up our kitchen just a bit.















I do have a pantry next to our refrigerator, but didn't post it.










The cows in the pasture picture is hung between the kitchen and dining room.

I just love seeing all these pictures. What I can't get over is how much space you all have. And how nice the floors are. My floor must be 100 years old and because of the pattern, I bet it looked dirty even when it was new.

DG, if I could do my kitchen the way I really wanted it, mine would make yours look completely modern. I'd do away with most of the counters and have work tables and hutches along the wall. And then I'd have those old fashioned 50s stoves and fridges from Elmira Antique appliances, retro refrigerator, reproduction stove and vintage stoves | Elmira Stove Works .

Ah, well. In another lifetime, I suppose.

By the way, is that a real working phone?

rodentraiser, at this time the phone is disconnected, as my husband and I now have cell phones, but the phone does work.

Thanks. The fridge isn't as big as it looks. It's 48" wide, but only counter depth (24"). Shelves are only 14" deep, so nothing gets lost in the back of the fridge!

Ah...perhaps it was your wide angle lens which stretched it a bit and made it look like a 60 incher...
You're right about things getting buried in the back of a conventional fridge.
We have a 36" fridge and it's getting old. Eventually my wife wants to replace it with a 48". There is space as it only requires removal of the 6" cabinet trims on both sides of our current fridge.

I'm in the process of moving. I love my new kitchen, much bigger than the tiny one I have in my apt. I'll post pics as soon as I can.

I'm so excited about my double ovens. I've never had double ovens before. Ever!
