BRIGHT IDEAS!

Country Woman - - WELCOME HOME -

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.
