I am a big believer that aesthetics matter. I have a hard time enjoying dinner at a restaurant that lacks creative decor, and I’ve been having a tough time cooking in my cluttered kitchen!
I love so many things about our kitchen, but I’m not a big fan of the counter-top clutter. My designer mom suggested a small piece of furniture that could serve as storage for some of our appliances and could provide a cookbook shelf, and we have one wall of our kitchen with just a bit of room!
Any piece of furniture would need to be not-too-deep, large enough for appliances, and able to fit in with our eclectic (random) style.
Here are a few examples of storage tables/buffets that I thought might work:
I considered a few pieces but didn’t love the prices, so I decided to just be on the lookout for a good deal.
Last night, while out for a run, I came across a little old door on the side of the road. I brought it home, wiped it off & started brainstorming.
I would love to take this cute little door and turn it into a combination of these pieces:
These 3 images don’t have a ton in common, but I’d love to somehow:
- create a table with the door as the table top
- have functional storage underneath (possibly with milk crates or storage baskets)
- incorporate some fun colors like that funky blue
For now, here’s where we’re at:
What do you think?
I would love to hear your ideas and suggestions!
