Dreaming of a French Farmhouse Bread Makers Cupboard

 Do you have that one piece of furniture that you have been dreaming about? My dream started goodness probably 8 or so years ago after seeing a rustic vintage style hutch that was for sale at an antique shop in PA called Lucketts. I believe Miss. Mustardseed had posted a pic of it on her blog at the time. She use to have a space there. Anyways, it was a dreamy piece to say the least and I was never able to find anything like it online or locally.

Fast forward to about 2 years ago. We were out shopping for office furniture for Mr. Front Porch and I found my dream cabinet. It was not this one but a single style. I wanted to get two to flank each side of our breakfast nook windows but sadly they were too wide.

Fast Forward to Spring of this year and a local shop I follow on FaceBook posted that they had a tabletop bakers/bread cabinet. I was still dreaming of the full size cabinet but was just as happy with the counter top cabinet. It matches our style perfectly and we use it daily. 


After seeing more posts on FB of the full size cabinet I told Mr. Front Porch that I thought I was ready to change up the hutch in our dining room even though I love the French Country hutch we already own. It has been a staple in our dining room for almost 10 years now. Mr. Front Porch said if I wanted it for Christmas I could have it! Isn't he just the best!? I think so even without him buying me new furniture. Anyways,you would think I would jump right on the offer but I still hemmed and hawed over the purchase for months. One I still loved our current hutch and second the new cabinet that I wanted I was afraid was too big for our space. The medium size cabinet I shared earlier in the post is  actually smaller than our current hutch and I did not want anything smaller! I finally decided to go for it and to get the larger cabinet.

 The cabinet is actually called a Bread Makers Cupboard I believe. It comes in several different styles. This one has four glass bakers doors. The story goes that bread makers would sit the dough in the glass areas till it rose and was ready for baking. Once baked they would place in the upper cabinets for sale. Who knows if that is true or not but sounds good!:)

The cabinet comes in several different color stories as well from white to this dingy white wash.

Then there is the raw wood style which is a new one. This piece is gorgeous in person!

Then there is black. We purchased black cabinets for the office and really like them. It was a tough decision but I finally made one.

Crazy lady I am the week of Thanksgiving I got to emptying out the current hutch and dining room to make room for my Christmas present. Which one did I choose? I bet you can probably guess.

Yep, I went with distressed white. You just can not go wrong with white and it matches the counter top cabinet in the kitchen.

I am in LOVE with this piece and am so glad we went with the larger version. It fits perfectly in our space. Stay tuned because I am in the middle of giving it a mini makeover of sorts and decking it out for the holidays! Speaking of decking the halls I shared the first part of our Christmas breakfast nook yesterday. CLICK on over if ya missed it!

  4. These are beautiful. So happy you got the one that you really wanted. It works great in the room. Not too big at all. If you w3nt smaller you would have been settling. Sometimes I think smaller also makes rooms looked cluttered.

    Can't wait to see her beautified even further.
