We recently finished redoing Tara's rental kitchen, transforming it from a 1970s nightmare into a more livable and lovable space. After doing the more substantial stuff — like painting cabinets and redo-ing the floors — we added a bunch of space-saving storage to make it a small kitchen superstar. It doesn't take much, just a few 5-minute projects here and there.

Laurel Display Cabinet at Ballard Designs... I think I could copy this with a DIY and use it as storage and a bookshelf. I just need to find a small cabinet at a garge sale or Craigslist, refinish it with paint and distressing, and I want to replace the display opening with chicken wire..it'll be super cute! Maybe add some cute knobs from Hobby Lobby too!
