obvious vintage item in my kitchen is the salvaged barnwood we installed 4 years ago taken from an old crumbling wreck that was falling down after over 100 years of faithful service to a herd of dairy cows It s grey and rough and looks great as wainscoting along with a sweet chair rail to top it all off and the builders had just enough to finish the whole space It s a nice backdrop for the aprons hanging on a funky modern chicken wall hook and the iron handled dough cutter that hangs above the countertop My friend gave us a beaufitul jelly cabinet where I keep my tea pot and mugs and all the cookbooks I married plus a dry sink I found at an antique store in Amish country a few hours from home Really love that old Betty Crocker cookbook Ever try the French Breakfast Muffins recipe
