I recently complained that our kitchen’s looking too ‘new’,
+ I mused that a reclaimed lumber box beam might help with that:
So. What else could I do to add some instant age?

I bought this very pretty table cloth today;

Since I love vintage fabric,
I already had this gingham check tablecloth:
Don’t they look great together?
My plans for them include sewing short tiers for here:
And possibly on the glass doors of this upper cabinet:
I know! That’s a lot of curtains in just 1 room!
I’m even toying with the idea of this:
A skirt for our farmhouse sink!
