Show encourages thinking outside of the box
Vintage and antique pieces from antique stores are able to add character to some farmhouse kitchens.
Vintage, salvage and antique stores are great places to find items and inspiration for a farmhouse kitchen.
Look for old tables and furniture pieces like hutches that could be re-purposed for the kitchen.
At Pink Pig, a vintage-focused store in Westport, N.Y., owner Debbie Schrodt has clients who collect everything from antique scales to rolling pins to display in kitchens.
"The rolling pins might be in different woods like cherry or walnut or have handles painted different colors," Schrodt says.
Old bread boxes, bowls and enamelware also are a big draw, she says.
"White or blue teapots or coffee pots look great in a kitchen," she says. "Patterns are also popular."
Think out of the box a little, too. Turn old tractor seats into kitchen counter stools or mix an old-style, hand-pump faucet with sleek appliances.
"You have to be a little creative," says Jordee Williford, project designer for Doublee Design Group in Richmond, Va. "When you see something, it isn't just an old door. It could be a table or wall art. You have to think about using everything in a different way."
