Sparrow House Kitchen Selections

I am so excited to share our kitchen selections for the Sparrow House! The goal is to take it back to its raw, natural form. It’s a Queen Anne style farmhouse, that was built in 1905, so the lacquer on the wood work was yellowy-orange and super shiny. Sanding off the lacquer, and bleaching the wood is taking it back to it’s beautiful natural state, and we couldn’t be more excited! Below is a video of the kitchen. Be warned, it’s a construction zone and sounds like it, so make sure you’re volume is down if you don’t want to hear a chorus of machinery ? You will see the original built in that will also be sanded and bleached, and the brick chimney that we freed from a layer of drywall.  Wishing I could have gotten this from multiple angles, but I was already in the way as it were ?


Here are the cabinet drawings!

The Collage


Vintage light pendants will be centered in front of the windows.


How cool are these vintage scissors sconces! These will be above the open shelves.

Parana white granite! We have these in our current home, and we definitely wanted to use it again! A durable granite, that looks like marble!

White subway tile with dark grout.

This tile will be in a surprise location!

Black cabinetry and vintage brass hardware.

I searched high and low for salvaged brass hardware that had enough in a lot to use for the kitchen, and these bad boys are the coolest!

I am in love with this salvaged brass cupboard lock! I only wish there had been more than one, but this will be perfect for under the sink to keep the littles out of the cleaning supplies!

The Rohl’s Shaws Original Farmhouse Sink was a no brainer! We love the one we have now so much we opted for a slightly larger size in this 60/40 apron front sink!

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this faucet! It’s the Waterworks Easton Vintage Two Hole Bridge Gooseneck Kitchen Faucet with Metal Cross Handles in unlacquered brass. The unlacquered brass will patina and have a gorgeous old world look like the salvaged brass hardware.

I hope you guys like the selections! Can’t wait to show y’all the finished product ?? Thank you so much for stopping by and seeing what we’ve been up to, sweet friends! xoxoxo lr
