I still get quite a few questions about our counters. they’re just builders grade 2x12’s from @loweshomeimprovement that we cut to length, sanded (a lot!), stained @minwaxusa early american, sealed with 5 coats of helmsman spar urethane (safe for counters), and attached with brackets to the cabinets. i absolutely love that they fit our 1880 home. some of the newer counters out there just wouldn’t have existed when this house was built. i also love the price, which was right around $100 to do the island and counters beside the stove. a few tips i have for anyone considering doing wood counters. first, do not buy pressure treated wood. it’s full of chemicals that you don’t want to put somewhere that food will touch. second, make sure you get boards that aren’t warped at all. the longer the boards, the harder it is to get them to all lay flat and touch each other on the edges. we had 2 boards on the island that just did not want to meet up, and it’s still driving me nuts that there’s a bigger gap in between them than i would’ve liked. yes, we get crumbs in the cracks. some people put clear silicone caulk in the cracks, but i wanted the counters to look as rustic as possible. so every once in awhile i just scrape out the crumbs with a steak knife. 😂 it’s been about 6 months and they’re holding up amazingly well to 4 homeschooled kids who eat 2-3 meals a day at the island. and as i always say, at $100, you really don’t have much to lose by trying them out. 😄💕 #hideandseekfarm #farmhouse #farmhousekitchen #kitchenrestoration #kitchendesign #kitchenremodel #kitchenremodel #diykitchen #diykitchenremodel #woodfloors #woodsandwhites #woodcountertop #woodcounter #plywoodfloors #paintedfloor #openshelving #openshelves #oldhome #oldhouse #oldhouselove #historichome #authentickitchen #authenticfarmhouse #bhghome #countrylivingmag #mycountryhome #romantichome #cottagejournal #hgtvmagazine #americanfarmhousestyle

There’s a reason why resilient flooring types and ceramic tile are the go-to floorings for utility areas in the home. #linkinbio

Then and now from @empireexplorer
brewster house at 475 temple hill road in new windsor, new york.

samuel brewster built this simple fieldstone house in 1762. as a fervent patriot, brewster allowed the house to be used for officer's quarters during the revolution. a surviving order from washington reads: "a sergeant, corporal and twelve privates to be sent immediately as a guard to lord stirling's quarters at deacon brewster's one and a half miles north of general knox's quarters." the house is now currently schlesinger’s steak house. with additional space having been added on the front, roof, and sides, the location serves as a popular restaurant and cigar bar.

Finishing bathroom touches in the 1905 house - handmade medicine cabinets, custom mirrors, lighting i scoured from 1900 pullman railroad cars, and some totally cool backing plates custom made to fit the lights. now just need to puddy the s***w holes and final paint touch ups and hardware installation.

I’m over june. cue rant: *instead of posting a gleaming picture of my newly finished hardwood floors, you get the rental kitchen. the contractor never showed up wednesday, promised he would come thurs and did the same thing today. he didn’t show. i am beyond frustrated. between the house i’m renting and the house i own i’ve had just about enough of things not working and people not doing what they say they will do. what is wrong with people?!? why is it so hard to get people to do what they say they are going to do!?!😭 if nothing happens by thursday my floors might be a diy.... i have renters moving in on the 1st and the floors have to be done.* rant over fingers crossed my contractors show up monday. #renovation #oldhome #peoplesuck #hellllp #diy #diyhardwoodfloors #kitchensofinstagram #isjuneoveryet

I picked up this japanese hand plane from @suizan_japan for $15. i love that it’s just a block of maple, this also means it’s very light and perfect for your pouch. i have a new found appreciation for this tool and have been using it more and more since dusting my old stanley off a couple weeks ago. japanese hand planes are designed to be pulled, unlike an american plane that’s made to be pushed...i feel like there’s a cultural metaphor in there somewhere. •

Our upstairs hallway. it makes for a nice little play space for my youngest daughter, just outside the girl’s bedroom. someday i’d like to build a window seat here but for now i’m enjoying having a little one still. the little wooden doll bunk beds were made by my grandfather, and have been played with by multiple generations now.

What a mess, a historic home in beacon hill with years of c****y work. starting from scratch on this one. from traditional to modern, follow the hashtag as we document this one.
