I’m back with another post about another area we just finished pulling together in Katie’s kitchen. It’s to the left of the area I blogged about on Monday…pictured below:
This area is really the walkway to the kitchen, so we wanted to put it to work vertically as much as we could. Meaning, we wanted it to hold a lot of “stuff”, but we didn’t want any of it to stick out into the room more than 12 inches.
We started with the built-in cabinet, which has a pair of old windows as doors and holds all of Jim and Katie’s glasses, some of her crystal, and a bunch of her salt and pepper shakers.
Next up, we brought in a super shallow storage console that I picked up for a heck of a deal on Way Day. It came with great big cabinet knobs that were supposed to be placed in the center of each door, like this:
I felt like the oversized knobs, and where they were positioned, made the piece feel a little less “sophisticated”, for lack of a better word, so we drilled new holes (filled the old ones) and used the same knobs Jim & Katie have on their kitchen cabinets instead:
Here are a few more photos I snapped after we finished arranging things in there today:
I thought it would be fun for Katie to see her wedding china, (instead of it just living inside a cabinet all the time) so I placed it in a couple of the crates as “art”.
And speaking of those hanging crates, remember those herb them from…oh, I don’t know…like 10 years ago? 😀 It was so fun to put them back to use in there!
Here are links in case you’re on the hunt for anything we used:
We’re going to be working on a gallery wall grouping in a different part of this den/kitchen room soon, so I look forward to sharing that when we’re done!
Have a great weekend!
