Authentic Cottage Character

Beaded board on the lower cabinets and the antique clock and light fixture add classic cottage style to this kitchen. Homeowner Heather Chadduck removed upper cabinets to keep the room open and airy, moving her dinnerware to an open hutch.

More Cottage Details
Countertop with character: Heather poured concrete countertops and crowned them with a marble backsplash fashioned from two boxes of 12- by 12-inch polished marble tiles cut in half. The countertops cost about $50 plus the price of concrete, and the tiled backsplash was far less than a single marble slab.

Drawer pulls: Installing reproduction antique cabinet hardware is an easy way to add cottage character to any kitchen.
