if you know me well, you know i am always scheming up new ideas for house projects. i believe decorating your home is all about making your space work to fit the needs of your family at that specific & unique time.
i always have a project in the works around these parts. right now i am redecorating our bedroom, collecting my favorite white & black prints for a gallery wall.
for a long while, i had been casually shopping for a china cabinet to fit this wall in-between our walk-in pantry & kitchen. at the time, the space looked like this. it was cute, but it wasn't functional.
i wanted a place to store my favorite well-used platters, extra utensils, juice glasses & my great grandma's quilts. i also wanted extra storage for linens & candles.
then walks in the hoosier cabinet of my dreams.
a little beat up & rough around the edges (aren't we all), but it fit the bill & had so much potential.
when i shared the photo above with luke, he was a bit doubtful of my vision. there were about 3,000 pieces to assemble & large pieces of wood were warped with age.
with a can of paint, new hardware & beadboard, we turned this little hoosier cabinet into a functional piece perfect for our space & purpose.
i added mason jars tied with twine to the bottom & filled them with my favorite copper utensils i purchased at the thrift shop for under $5.
i also thrifted pretty white pots & planted a mix of real & fake succulents to add a pop of life to this little corner.
there is ample amount of room for my favorite thrifted antique platters & lotus bowls. i love those little juice glasses originally from anthropologie that i thrifted for just under a buck.
i purchased the fun knobs at hobby lobby for just under $2 each (their hardware goes on sale for 50% off quite often!).
i also added one of my favorite plants to the top with a cute little happy flag popping out!
& of course, our planting calendar is nearby to guide us through the seasons.
i absolutely adore this space & it's functionality! now onto the next project...!
what are you scheming up for the next big project in your home? please share!
