Kitchen design, option 2: repurposed cabinetry.

Preface: some posts resist being edited into anything concise/coherent/not containing 57,000 ideas… This is one of them.

I love the idea of having a full wall dedicated to just storage in the form of antique, floor-to-ceiling, glass front, wardrobe-ish, built-in library, butler’s pantry, bookcase-ish cabinetry.

The best location for such a shrine to awesomeness would be on what is now the sink wall.

Try not to be distracted by my superb photoshop skills.

Planning our DIY kitchen remodel… I love the idea of using salvaged or repurposed materials in place of traditional kitchen cabinets.

The acquisition troll is on her hamster wheel… churning away, wearing an 80’s style sweatband and leg warmers.

She was the one who suggested I go back, alone– the day after the auction previews, to two, separate auctions… and drive back and forth between the two in order to bid on items of questionable value… then run glassy-eyed to my car and drive back to the other auction while psychically-willing them to not have begun bidding on my next thing.

Paul thought that doing this once would cure me forever. But I guess he does not know me at all.

My latest auction finds… I love giant, fancy, old junk, and auctions are a great source for inexpensive furniture and decor!

the sofa.  the wardrobe... not the bookcase’s forever home, but I need to sell the one it’s replacing.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
