Any Ideas!? Please!

This beaut used to be a kitchen built in that we he pulled out to expand the kitchen. It’s really well made, all real wood, and pretty old. Probably original to our 1942 house. If not original, then from the late 50s early 60s, the one time the kitchen was previously re-done. We definitely don’t want to get rid of this! But we don’t know what to do with it. Our bathroom remodels won’t have the space and we aren’t wanting to open up any dining room walls. Any one with ideas please comment!!

Here’s what it looked like when we moved in:

Yes, the kitchen could definitely be cleaner.

Yep, the mess is part of my life. This is right after unloading the uppers.

Lesson Learned

You know how on the back of a spray paint can it says not to use it if the temperature is below 50 degrees? Well, my husband won’t allow me to spray paint in the house or garage (since I’m pregnant), so I just did some spray painting outside. It’s about 32 degrees. This is what happened: 

  

I’m spray painting jar lids for my craft room so I can put my cute stuff out all prettily.
