Knotty pine is comfy cozy, unpretentious & warm — and it seems like ‘most everyone has some great memories attached to it:
My great grandmother’s house was done in Knotty Pine (nearly throughout). Built in the 40′s and faced so there was quite a bit of light in the kitchen it represented all that was comfort to me. The smell of knotty pine has not been discussed here. That sweet, semi-cedar nose that the house takes on along with Grandmother’s Chicken ‘n’ Dumplings will live forever in my memory along with the visual warmth of those walls and cabinets as a backdrop to antique lamps, quilts and crocheted bedspreads. The small, dim hallway with that bright aqua tile glow into the one bathroom. The glowing white sheer curtains that lift with the summer breeze. Yes, Knotty is nice….
Do you have knotty pine memories, too? We’d love to hear them!
