1 Use old floorboards to build a simple farmhouse table and benches.
2 Consider plain or textured glass inserts in cabinet doors for an antique look.
3 Add interest by using beadboard paneling on the backsplashes and behind cabinets, as Taylor did.
4 Choose a warm white paint for cabinets or walls (Taylor used Dover White by Sherwin-Williams). It keeps the look clean but timeless.
5 When restoring an old home, do plenty of research online or at the library for what it may have looked like in its heyday.
