My son and daughter in law bought a vintage bungalow tucked in a cute old neighborhood in Minneapolis for their 1st home to start their memories of a married couple in. That was a few years ago, they have precious memories of their first home, but now that their family has grown to 3, they decided to sell their small home and move to a little more spacious setting.
Being on a fairly tight budget for renovations in this first house, they wanted to work with what they had in the kitchen.
And this is what they had on one wall with a narrow walkway that leads to the backyard.
These super shallow glass fronted cabinets that look more like they belong in a Dr.’s office than a kitchen.
So my son and his wife took the doors off, repainted the frames, added beadboard to the back of them…
Then, after measuring their set of pots and pans, started screwing in hooks to the back wall of beadboard.
To hold the lids, which was very important as this small kitchen had limited storage space, they shopped the plumbing aisle at Home Depot and this is what they came up with:
He soaked the copper fittings and pipe in a solution that darkened it.
Their pans fit on perfectly, with fun accents of red.
The kitchen turned out so cute…
But alas that was a chapter in the book that has come to an end…
Now the pans and everything else of theirs is out of the house, and the new owner has moved in.
But that’s not where the story ends…
My son and daughter in law are in the process of purchasing a very different house than this vintage bungalow, it’s a 1970’s house that they are making plans to do major renovations to…
So the story continues, and I’ll share it with you… It’ll be fun to see their new house transform into their new home.
I appreciate you stopping by.
