Kitchen Addition

Before I went to Florida to photograph a wedding I mentioned that I picked up an awesome thrift find that I would share later. Well, now it's later :)

Meet my new teak...credenza? (or would you call it something different).



I didn't want to do the full reveal until I had it properly styled but it might take me a while before I head to Ikea to pick up a frame for the print I have propped up - so here it is :) Here's what the same area looked like up until about 3 months ago when I got the urge to rearrange. Then the wall sat empty when I moved the former storage shelf to where it currently sits now - beside my desk holding books and magazines.

It's perfect for the area, which is in my 'eating' nook right beside the kitchen, and as you can see it's home to my microwave & cookbooks (so it no longer takes up my valuable counter space!), my lame liquor stash....


...and the bottom, behind the doors, holds extra kitchen necessities. Bottles of water, rice, Howard's food & dishes, and kitchen appliances I use frequently but not enough to have out on display (like my toaster and cuisinart griddler)

 

Ignore the stuff on the floor under the credenza and to the side of it, I still have to put those away ;)

I still have to line the two drawers that slide out with some pretty paper but all-in-all not bad for $29, eh?

Love your style and your mad thrifting skills. Please don't take offense but place booze near the Buddha is super bad karma like placing a hunk of pork on the Koran or hanging a pentagram on a Mary statute. i know people forget Buddha images are religious.
