Flea Market Kitchen


We saw a show & tell party on the blog, Flea Market Style, & decided to join in! Flea Market & salvage is our style of choice!
Every room of our re-modeled farmhouse has been built, retrofitted or embellished with flea market & salvage finds. No room more than our "unfit" kitchen. We had no desire or budget for custom cabinets, so Hubs built my fabulous kitchen with a mix of "finds". He scoured, flea markets, tag sales, salvage yards & even traded with friends who had found fabulous stuff.
The "unfit" kitchen-look, isn't for everyone, but it suits us to "T" & I. LOVE. IT!




The cabinets are all flea market finds. Some we painted, others we waxed or shabbied.
The butcher-block counter-tops are old bowling alley floors a friend found at the Alameda Antique Faire & she bought all they had. She ended up with more than she needed, so we traded her for the rest. We still have enough for a gigantic island Hubs is building and still had leftovers to sell to another friend for her kitchen island! It is a find that keeps on giving!
The copper farm sink was an eBay find and the legs were from the Turlock, Ca. Tuesday flea market. I loved them, so Hubs built them into a cabinet to hold our sink.
Even our windows, were bought from Urban Ore Salvage in Berkeley, Ca. They are Marvin Master Casement dual-paned windows, pulled out of an upper end home in the Napa Valley after 8 months of use, when they discovered the builder had used the incorrect stucco molding when installing them. The insurance company donated them to Urban Ore, and we were the lucky people to be there the day they came in! SCORE! We bought enough to use in our whole house re-model.
The shabby blue-grey tool caddy was a find at a local sale. I love its patina & use it all over the house for different seasons.
The floors are 100 year old Douglas Fir beams, that have been re-milled into tongue & groove flooring. We purchased them from Marc at Crossroads Lumber, in North Fork, Ca. The eye-candy up there is phenomenal, for those who love old wood!
Thanks to Flea Market Style and their fabulous Blog, for letting us join in on their party!
