Beautiful Salvaged Storage Ideas for the Kitchen
I live in a 1947 era home with a sad, sad kitchen. I found these great kitchen storage ideas from the Re-nest website I mention earlier this week. On top of that, we have virtually everything to create these looks at Aurora Mills! Well, not the airplane food cart bins pictured on the Re-nest blog – not yet anyway! Maybe I can finally get that Beautiful-Big-Girl-Kitchen-of-My-Dreams-(while being sustainable)-Look!
Industrial Kitchen Island.
We have all the materials – barn wood, bowling alley flooring and metal machine bases – at Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage to build this island!
Repurposed Work Bench
We have a number of vintage and antique work benches that incorporate nice solid work space with storage.
Armoir Turned Pantry
I saw this photo in Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine years ago. It still works today. If not a wood armoir, use one of those great metal industrial cabinets.
What to do with those old library card filing systems? Turn them into storage!
I think this would work well for someone who knits or sews or does crafts. Lots of places to store all those little things!
Produce Boxes Turned Shelving
Metal Magazine/Pamplet Storage Transformed Into Kitchen Island
Okay, we don’t sell Legos at Aurora Mills but I thought this was such a fun look. You could get really creative with the design. It would also make a cute nightstand in a childs room.
Here is the link to their blog. It has a few more ideas, like the airplane food cart bins I mentioned earlier. Enjoy! http://www.re-nest.com/re-nest/creative-reuse/20-creative-and-repurposed-kitchen-storage-ideas-110530
