This cute little guy lived a happy life in our old home, functioning as the dish cupboard he was intended to be.
He was happy. I was happy. Life was good.
Then we moved into a house with tons of built-in dish storage, i.e. this:
and suddenly we didn't have a need for a cute dish cupboard. So he sat in the garage and waited patiently for me to figure out what to do.
I finally figured it out.
We don't have a need for dish storage, but we do have a major need for book storage in this new place we call home. So now our little mid-century modern dish cupboard is living a new life as a bookshelf in the gray guest bedroom.
Finally, more books are out of boxes and fewer boxes cover the floor of our eventual office (somehow all the book boxes landed here on moving day and haven't moved since.)
Finally, a place for the oh-so-important guest room necessities.
Finally, a place for our pretty-yet-practical books....oh wait--did I say something like that already?
The world is right again for our fantastic mid-century piece.
He's happy. I'm happy. Life is good.
Now it's time to do something with that primed but unpainted guest room door...Pin It
