Raise your hand if you have more than enough storage in your home to fill your needs.
I never seem to have enough storage for items in my kitchen since I don’t use the kitchen drawers. They’re nailed shut because they won’t hang right.
And in this apartment there is no pantry, no hall closet and no linen closet. So I rely on stand alone furniture to provide storage space for my things.
So now my kitchen dish towels and cloth napkins are in this piece of furniture. Before they were stored in a cupboard in my bedroom.
No, I didn’t lift it myself. I believe I’ve learned my lesson about that kind of thing.
The guy at Tuesday Morning put it in my car and I paid the maintenance guy here to bring it inside.
I’m not sure what this piece of furniture is actually called. So I’m calling it a credenza.
It fits right in with everything in my living room. I like the sanded and unpainted look of it. The natural smooth surface lends a bit of character I think.
You could also use it as a night stand if you needed one. Or you could use it in most any room where you need drawers for storage.
It would also work great in a sewing room to store fabric and notions and such.
Oh, the things I find at Tuesday Morning! I just love that store. It’s seldom busy and I like to stroll the aisles at least once a month just to see what’s new.
I look around my apartment and can count the beloved items I’ve discovered at Tuesday Morning and just had to bring home with me.
I decided to change up the look on top of it just for kicks. Here’s another version of how I decorated it. I just changed up the elements on top of it slightly.
I switched paintings that I leaned against the wall. And I switched out the vintage blue bottles for a terra cotta pot with a candle in it.
I brought my snake plant over to set to the side of the credenza.
On top, if you can see the red and white checks, is a place mat just added for fun.
As you probably already know, caned furniture is all the rage in decorating right now. Particularly for its boho and textured style.
