We have this one corner in our kitchen that no matter what I put there or bought, nothing seemed to look right. When we renovated our kitchen one year ago, I bought this cabinet from the Habitat for Humanity. I thought I could make it work. Well I didn’t like it so out to the garage it went.
Then I bought this corner cabinet and put it there. I lived with it but I didn’t really like it.
Then two weeks ago, Charlie and I went to an auction and this beautiful table was there. It was love at first sight. I pulled my tape measure out and the dimensions were a perfect fit. Charlie and I waited patiently for the bidding to almost stop and then he jumped in and we got it for $110. I was in seventh heaven!
The table was in perfect condition. I love the open space in the bottom.
With liquid sander deglosser, cabinet paint and new hardware, I transformed it to this.
I didn’t paint the top or bottom of the table. I left the stain. I put baskets on the bottom shelve to hold Duncan’s dog good and my cookbooks.
Charlie and I made the shelves. We purchased the corbels from Home Depot.
I have searched and experimented for almost a year for the right piece of furniture to go into our kitchen. And now I am content.
