I do believe that home decor can be sparkled with kitchenfurniture. With the application offurniture design concepts to kitchen design, Lankford Design Group createsbeauty and efficiency for family life and entertaining.
I did too and this is how I did it inexpensively. We are building a new house and intend to go this route with my brand new kitchen. Hope you can use some of these ideas. It's totally functional and adorable as well.
@Sandy Olson- Watts I just love your kitchen!!! It's not a bit ''sterile' and not run of the mill!
Do like Sandy Olson-Watts did and go to Church sales, garage sales, and estate sales, and junk shops to see whats there! I would love to have a kitchen like this!!
I am currently painting and old bureau/desk, the type with a fold down flap on the front for writing and a display cabinet/bookcase above exactly for this purpose. I have taken off the flap and filled the hinge holes with wood filler. I removed the little cubby holes at the back as they were too small to be practical for kitchen stuff. To my surprise there was no 'base' under this area so i used the discarded flap to make level with the front by cutting it in half and just sliding in. I also bought glass from a local store to replace the wooden shelves in the bookcase bit above. I will use the desk area for stacking crockery, the display area above for glasses (I am also cutting a hole in the top and adding a light so it will look like a proper display cabinet) and the drawers underneath for other general kitchen stuff. It will have cost about £100, replacing a built in unit that was costing £1000 from the kitchen company! If I am clever enough I will try and post a picture when it is finished!
