Antiques are a good starting point when decorating your cottage kitchen. Fight over your local second-hand store for old glasses and chopping boards and jugs. Only a touch of antiquity will give you feelings of nostalgia and turn your kitchen into a place where anyone can pull up a chair for a good chat. (about A Kings Lane )

Don’t worry about the fact that they don’t match! It will be easy to replace them. (about The Kitchn )
