The kitchen inside this Bowling Green, Kentucky, 1896 Queen Anne
had to be gutted. It turned out to be owners Dorian and Elaine Walker's biggest hands-on project. Dorian learned how to make cabinet doors and Elaine had mastered putting down hexagonal ceramic-tile flooring.
A circa-1920 gas- and wood-burning stove became the starting point for a vintage-style kitchen with marble counters, a tin ceiling, salvaged pendant lights, and a reclaimed heart-pine floor with a ceramic-tile "rug" in front of the range. The wainscot was inspired by beadboard in an existing pantry.
