Pale oak floors have a scrubbed look, and plank cabinetry with painted hinges and black latches give this Florida kitchen old-time charm. To top the counters and island, the architect and homeowner chose butcher block for its warmth and informality.
The supports are long steel bars that go through the shelves and into the studs in the wall. We predrilled holes for them before we tiled. We used oak planks seamed together to make a solid wood shelf." I love the hanging coffee mugs.
