Things stay pretty much the same around my house. I have lived here for twenty years ~ so things are for the most part DONE.
But I have never been happy with my storage space in the kitchen!
For that last ten years I have had a primitive cabinet ~ not a good primitive cabinet ~ a serviceable primitive cabinet sitting on top of this long pine table.
The wall behind it has always been bare ~ a rare thing in the house of antiques dealer. All in all, the set up was workable, and I could store a lot of stuff....BUT I didn't LOVE it.
I've had these cool 8ft. tall shutters sitting in "The Piles" in my garage ~ doing nothing useful for many years.
Here they are on the wall ready the "new" cabinet to go in front of them.
The little piece is one of the cabinet doors from the old primitive cabinet....it is going to end up on top of the new cabinet.
Above is the "new" cabinet ~ in the middle of its beauty treatment. It was a curbside find from this spring ~ also unburied from "The Piles" in the garage.
Now with a lot of help from Mr. Anything Goes Here, this over 5ft. long cabinet is in its new home holding many of my favorite things.....ironstone compotes and glass cake domes among them.
It was worth ALL the effort. At last I LOVE this space.....
and several things have gotten cleared out of the garage. Ah, sweet progress!
