The basement apartment needed a table or an island or BOTH.
When a person only has 266 sq ft to work with, you have to think outside the box
I found this piece at the Interfaith Thrift Store. It was the bottom half of a large buffet.
Yes! I can make this work
I want it to have double, triple, even quadruple jobs
It needs to have storage ✔️
It needs to provide a space to sit and eat, or work, or watch TV or ? ✔️
It needs to match current decor ✔️
Since I didn’t get the top part of it, a counter would need to be built
The height needed to be perfect.
Many legs would sit under the “pretend”‘counter trying to determine the height. Short barstools? Taller barstools? Fat or skinny barstools?
So many options
But look at all the storage!!
I spray painted the already cute hardware and put it back on
Even the back needed to be cute so I added wood trim to match
The top was stained to match and the doors were put back on
It was meant to be
The perfect size
The perfect piece
And even cute from the back
This week is all about the basement apartment.
I hope you will enjoy seeing all the details
