Two years ago, or so, I was asked by Kim at Savvysouthernstyle to post some pictures of my kitchen.  It's taken a while, but here it is.  

Our cabinets were custom-built, by Dixie Cabinetry in Springville, AL.  I requested a mantel over the stove.  I bought the plate in St. Augustine at the Columbia.

I requested a brick floor when we were building this house.  We had to go to five different Lowe's stores to get enough of this brick because it was being discontinued.  But I love it.  

The cabinets were painted white with a chocolate glaze and antique brass hardware. 

I also wanted plate racks.  So handy!

That's my daughter's hand-print on the plate.  The artist turned it into a rooster.  What a good idea!

My favorite granite is "Mahogany Blue Eyes."  United Surfaces in Springville, AL did our kitchen, bathrooms, and the brick and tile floors. 

Below is the bar.  We eat most of our meals there.

This door leads into the pantry.  And this is also Caroline's corner of the kitchen.  Her little kitchen was made by her great-grandfather in the 1950's.  She loves it.  I hung her artwork and a picture of her and her cousin on the wall above it. 

And this was a piece of furniture that my mom gave me.  I took the doors off of the top of it and had it painted to match my cabinets.

These french doors lead out to the back porch.  

Hope you enjoyed the kitchen tour.  Have a great week everyone!

  1. Well, I do love your kitchen even though I don't remember asking that two years ago. I can't even remember last week. :) That brick floor is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love your kitchen! Your floors are amazing! I'm in the beginning of changing my kitchen. Just started painting today. Round 2 with new paint color.

  3. Your kitchen is amazing. I love all the fabulous detail in the cabinetry and you have it decorated so beautifully. I would love for you to link up to my Inspire Me party that is ongoing - http://www.astrollthrulife.net/2013/07/171st-inspire-me-tuesday.html Hugs, Marty

  4. Hi Rachel,
    I'm so glad you visited me because I was able to hop over here and see your gorgeous kitchen! I love your glazed cabinets, the hood mantle, the brick floor and just about everything else. And that was a great idea to paint your cupboard to match your cabinets. I have been enjoying reading about your trip to the Amish country. I have not been to Ohio but I have been to the Amish area in Pennsylvania. I was amazed by their beautiful farms! Hope that you are able to make some spaghetti sauce with your tomatoes!
