Yesterday I showed some of my favorite funky chic kitchens.
Today I'm going to go further and show salvaged funky cabinets and other storage solutions in kitchens.
I loved some of the comments from yesterday's post.
Most of you were inspired. A few couldn't imagine working in a kitchen such as these.
One commenter loved the pretty things displayed above the stove but said
that it was impractical because of the kitchen grease that would accumulate.
I hadn't even thought about that.
I have a shelf of pretties above my own stove.
I don't have any problem with them getting grease on them...since I never cook with grease or oil.
I might sauté with a little olive oil or butter or balsamic vinegar but that is rare and it does
not cause a greasy film on anything in the kitchen.
So, personally I think it's ok to have pretties in the kitchen.
I adore those cabinets above.
Just adore it. Notice the small electric stove top?
This would by a tiny kitchen in a tiny cottage.
The black wire spice rack is the star in this kitchen.
I was inspired by a rack like this when I came up with my own spice rack.
I actually wanted a little wire spice rack but came up with this instead.
It's the perfect size for the space I had available.
It's very handy to have a spice rack right by the stove.
I know many said it was a mistake when I installed it there.
They said spices should be kept in cool dark place but I use them up pretty quickly
because they are always in sight.
So it has not been a problem.
Just look at this row of cabinets and hutches! This makes for delightful kitchen cabinets.
Here industrial shelving does the trick. I'm really a fan of these shelves anyway.
I used to have some of these in my old office with seagrass baskets on them.
They looked pretty awesome.
Anyway...even though all this stuff is exposed in this kitchen...it still looks very nice.
This kitchen really has shelves. Those there at the right remind me of the old metal bins
you used to see at hardware stores.
This kitchen is too rustic for my own use but I do think it looks divine.
These shelves look like they'd be super easy to build.
Love the industrial cottage vibe.
A pretty dresser in the kitchen is a welcome surprise at Maple and Magnolia.
A big sideboard makes for an excellent kitchen cabinet.
This is kitchen of one of the girls of Vintage White Market.
She added the vintage turquoise cabinet to her kitchen.
Her whole kitchen is an amazing hodgepodge of salvaged items.
It includes a vintage stove and fridge which I love...want...need!
This kitchen is created from antique Indian cabinets placed side by side
with a counter top built over to unify them.
Look how great a wood pallet looks on the wall for a dish cabinet!
Again...too rustic for my actual use but I really like the way it looks.
Just shows kitchens can really be anything these days.
I love how bohemian and artistic these kitchens are!
