As I mentioned here, there are a lot of changes coming to my mom's kitchen in the future. However, they aren't going to happen overnight. There are several other things on the house "to do" list that currently trump the new cabinets. So in the meantime, I've made a few FREE adjustments to bring a little life and function to the space.
As shown before, there was an awkward and unsable space in the corner of the kitchen.
Luckily, we have a lot of unused furniture pieces in our garage and one of those pieces just happened to be an old buffet we haven't used in years. I decided to measure the empty space and the buffet, and much to my delight, I realized it would be a pretty good fit for the time being. So I dusted that baby off, brought it upstairs and started to accessorize.
Now the space currently looks like this.
We still have a long way to go in updating the space, but I think this is a good fix in the meantime. And best of all, it didn't cost a dime!
