A white apron sink set into a weathered wood base is given a fresh, current look with adjacent painted cabinets. Via Cottage and Vine. [this is the sink I want and if I had my way the rest of the kitchen would be 'weathered wood'.
_stone-top-kitchen-island-williams-sonoma Love the look, BUT in a bedroom or living room, NOT in a kitchen. Imagine a sticky soy and garlic marnade spilling off the counter all over th wood and those open shelves.
