All things {farmhouse} kitchen

There are two small DIY projects in the kitchen this week that I want to share with you. :)

Russ enjoys cooking outside (Big Green Egg is his other love) and we entertain and dine on the patio often when the weather allows.

The dresser stores his BBQ and smoking tools near the door and patio. The numbers will be helpful in reminding him where things are.

I painted our “microwave cart” dresser a pretty shade of dark distressed red and numbered the drawers. The wood tone shows through…

I also made a “Farmer’s Market” sign for the bulkhead above the kitchen sink and windows.
