Tell me you've seen The Bronson Pinchot Project on DIY. This guy is wonderfully knowledgeable about Greek revival and other revival and restoration (whatever!) but best of all he is terrifically silly, self effacing and eccentrically fun. And endearing. Let's not forget endearing. That's probably the best part. He should have this show.
Here is his old country kitchen - if I am not mistaken - there is a door behind those shelves on the left, and the cooktop was dropped into that antique table on the far right. Not sure where he hid the oven but I was quite impressed!
In the picture below - see the cabinets to the right of that doorway? That is a facade for the modern refrigerator. How awesome is that??
One of the things I love about the show is that Bronson is genuinely passionate about restoring old architecture but the show is so fun. If you haven't seen it, I recommend you give it a look-see. You don't have to like DIY stuff to enjoy the show. It always makes me smile.
