milk crates

we found these old milk crates buried underneath the kitchen floor today.  They have been there for at least 10 years!  It was like it was destined to be Buttermilk Kitchen!  We will clean them up and use as decor of course…


up-cycled decor…

had a great meeting with Jason Dominy from Batdorf and Bronson Coffee today.  We will proudly serve their coffee at Buttermilk Kitchen.  We bought these coffee bags from Jason and are going to use them to make our pillows and curtains.  All of the proceeds from the bags will go to an organization called coffee kids that helps improve the liveliness of coffee farming families.  Now we just need a Seamstress…
