A custom wood top was made by the homeowner for the vintage kitchen’s wood-fired grill. The copper hood is from the 1950’s. Tile was purchased at the local Home Depot and the wire chair was rescued from the town dump.

…’Heart And Home: Rooms that Tell Stories‘ by Linda O’Keeffe, 2014.
“…I’m not big on the provenance of things. I’m not at all concerned where things came from or who owned them.That feels like the past.
