The title may be pushing it a bit, but it is definitely within the realm of possibility. The first time I saw this piece it spoke to me LOUDLY. The price took me back a tad ($85) so as much as I liked it I just couldn’t reconcile that chunk of change at that time. I should mention that I don’t have enough storage in my kitchen and I’m so tired of fighting with the drawer below my oven. It sounds like I’m literally rattling pots and pans every time I get into that drawer to get a pot or a skillet and watch out if I have to dig for a lid.
Fast forward about two months. I could not stop thinking about this piece and its potential. It’s on casters, has a well worn formica top and one of the drawers is metal lined. The bottom has lots of room for pots and pans and lids! I can move it around to fit the task, even as an island.
I finally couldn’t stand it anymore and went back “just to see” if it was still there. It was. I did not go intending to buy it but that’s exactly what happened. I thought I could hide it in the garage while I figured out a way to break it to my husband. I hid it in plain sight. Then I started cleaning and taking Miss Thang apart.
All of the drawers and hardware removed.
And here she is in her new spot.
I’d like to say I’m really happy, but I think she needs a little more TLC. So, I’ve ordered my first quart of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m beyond excited to try it and think this is just what this gem needs to bring out her best. Notice the window frame above? I realize my pictures are lame-o but you get the gist right?
