Salvage Chic If you're handy with a saw, cut up found strips of weathered wood to give your kitchen island or peninsula a cottage-style facelift. Alternately, you can give new boards a similar look by painting them in different colors, then heavily sanding them.
Who wouldn’t love to have implements stored in a pullout like this one, in a design by Kirstin Havnaer, Hearthstone Interior Design? They are stored upright (no rummaging) and within arm’s reach of the cooktop. Via Houzz
