Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.
I love Ikea kitchen storage! We have a very traditional farmhouse kitchen with white shaker cabinets and butcher block countertops (from Lumber Liquidators, by the way) but to add a bit of contemporary to the room, Ikea did the trick. All of my common utensils are hanging at arms length. The magnetic knife bar is great! I have cake decorating tips and mini cookie cutters in the round compartments. They are magnetic too. On one wall we have a pine cabinet with a painted black top. We wanted it too look like a piece of furniture. It kind of does. But what I really like is the Ikea metal shelving above it. It is really handy to have bowls and platters right there to grab when it's time to serve. I bought all of these on Ebay from a lady that will go to the store and send you whatever you want. Love her for that! Love Ikea kitchen storage too! Don't you?
