Stoned Age: part 2

Built in 1851, Holly’s solid stone farmhouse was made to stand the tests of time.  The kitchen, however appeared to be pre-historic, or … whatever era it was that three-foot-tall people typically roamed the earth. Seriously, look at that low-flying chandelier and those tiny door frames!  It’s like a fun house, minus the fun.

That was before Holly moved in and pulled the kitchen into the present day.  She’s added every modern convenience you could dream of and lost none of the charm.  She even reused the beams for the islands supports.  I’m totally planning to move to rural New Jersey and restore an ancient farmhouse now, who’s with me?!

    This is so beautiful!!! My grandparents’ century + house was recently redone by the new owners, and they took all of the charm out of it. I’m so glad these folks know the value of having an old home with character!

  9. This is absolutely gorgeous – that stone wall is the perfect touch!

  10. This is beautiful! I don’t usually like wood kitchen cabinets because they are always too orange, too yellow, or too dark. These are the perfect wood tone and I love the look! Great makeover.
