I like both coffee and hot teas.
Not so, not so.
But I had been thinking about having one in our home for quite a while.
Our kitchen has a limited space,
But I finally came up with an idea...
the day before Thanksgiving.
Because you know,
when creativity strikes,
then you must act...immediately.
So I moved the microwave station to the side of the fridge,
took the pantry door down (to make room for microwave cart thingy),
sewn a curtain to replace the door,
disassembled a sewing machine table,
attach pallet slats,
and make the kitchen into a living space once again.
It took me less than 4 hours from start to finish.
And that's good, because that's all I had.
Husband was coming home from work
and 20 something people where showing up the next day (Thanksgiving) for a yummy meal.
For this project I didn't spend any money.
I had everything on hand.
The old sewing table was free.
One of our neighbor put it up the streets months ago.
I didn't know what I was going to do with it,
until last week.
Pallet was free.
The top wooden part was also free.
You might remember when I posted about it, over a year ago.
It sat in our garage until now.
The pull was part of a pack of 10 that I had bought for this other project.
I am also going to paint the bottom part with he same paint I used on the kitchen cabinets.
I have leftovers, so I am going to do that soon.
Honestly, every person that has been in our house since last week,
has commented on it.
Remember, I am Italian.
I am really excited about this project.
Honestly, I had not in mind to use the sewing machine table for my project.
I needed something longer and maybe skinnier.
But I didn't want to spend any money,
so I got thinking about what I could use in that space.
I tried a couple different options,
but as you can see,
this small table worked out perfectly,
and I could not be happier with the result.
