*Making It All Fit*

Kitchen storage is such a valuable commodity to most everyone.  I often find myself having to store dishes or serving pieces in the laundry room, only to realize that they aren't as easily accessible as I would like.  I had been looking for creative solutions when I stumbled upon this hutch for a really good price on Craigslist.


I think everyone I knew had one of these in the late 1980's and into the 90's, so finding one still in good shape was quite a stroke of luck.  Naturally I wanted to help it blend in with the rest of my decor, so out came the primer and paint to create a "new" hutch to help with kitchen storage.


Glossy black paint and cute knobs from Hobby Lobby gave this old piece just the breath of life it needed.  I also added wood strips so that I could display seasonal dish-ware on the shelves.




The doors on the bottom hide a variety of platters, oversized serving bowls, and pitchers.  The shelves are deep enough to make quite a difference in organizing my kitchen.  

I also love that I can display china and holiday decorations.  It will help to keep my countertops clear for Christmas baking, but still allow for a festive touch in the kitchen.



Do you have any interesting projects join on?  How do you cope with lack of space when trying to get organized?


I am participating in Metamorphosis Monday for the first time.  Stop over and check out other great transformations.

  3. This is a better time to start on home improvement in kitchen countertops, as the world of fashion is evolving at a fast pace. You may not require a lot of money, if your renovation plans involve small steps.
