So post two from my sister's house. In her kitchen she has this great piece that actually was in our house growing up. My Mom did the paint treatment probably back in the 70's.
I remember wondering why in the world she painted it that shade of green...seemed so outdated to me. Funny how I love it now!
Claudia added these cute knobs.
Inside she keeps all of her kids crafts supplies so they are handy for her little artists to create a masterpiece right a the kitchen table.
She put cork inside the doors to post important information and notes.
Another clever storage fixture is right beside the refrigerator. Even though it is a narrow spot, Claudia knew it would be the perfect place for her cook books.
She had our uncle build it and my brother-in-law secured it in place. She painted it the same color as the walls and filled in with her books and other goodies. What a great way to use what some would think is an unusable space!
