You put a dresser where???

That is right my friends. I put a dresser in my kitchen. My husband and I have very few items in our house that we are attached to  but the list just got a new addition. We picked up this beautiful dresser along with 4 other fun pieces from a guy up in Rockford. This piece was already in rough shape and a bumpy ride home didn't help. Needless to say, we had to send it to Tom the furniture doctor. He fixed the bases of the drawers and gave it a new backbone. Now it is perfect! 
Check out the hardware!

We did have one last problem though...we didn't have room for it anywhere! Finally my husband had the idea to take our small island workspace out of out kitchen and put it there. So after weeks in the garage, it finally has a new home.
Now all I need is fancier liquor to help with the staging. Time to start drinking the good stuff.


  1. I am in love with this! No wonder you kept it, and what a great idea to use it as a bar space!

  2. I think the next Carters Cottage pow wow should be at your house so we can help you drink the good stuff :) Love the dresser and the way you are using it!
