Before our kitchen was remodeled Harriet Hoosier was a vital piece. She provided a great deal of storage in our dysfunctional layout. To be honest it always pains me to share this photo…cause it’s really u.g.l.y!
Prepare yourself for ugliness…
OK, take a few minutes to compose yourselves…I know it was quite a shock! If you want to see the kitchen remodel click here, and here. Harriet is on the left, you might not be able to see, but there is not a lot of cabinet space.
Harriet held all my pots and pans, dishes, potato and onion bins, silverware tray and many, many dishes. She was the work horse of our our kitchen.
Have you ever done a remodel and after it was all done found you would do things, differently? Well I do, I would of chosen “white” cabinets and Harriet would have been part of the remodel. But looking back really doesn’t change anything.
Since the remodel Harriet rested quietly in our
basement dungeon. The dungeon is only 6’6″ tall so Harriet couldn’t stand upright. There she sat, unused, and quite lonely. How useless she must of felt.
Our large back deck was covered this spring. We used metal barn roofing and I love it. See the deck remodel here. The deck has been done since May but I’ve never found the time to “stage” it to share. I found the suummer fabric for the cushions but never found the time to sew them.
Since summer is over, the fabric i tucked away till next year, I’ve decided to concentrate on a Fall reveal. Even though the deck is not ready yet….I do want to share with you a renewed Harriet Hoosier cabinet and where she resides…
on our deck. She received a bright new coat of paint and her cabinets and drawers were filled once again with dishes and glasses. All the items needed to entertain ourselves and guests.
The deck was stained gray and looks really nice against the yellow on the house.
Everyone tells me she’s a bit tall for a Hoosier cabinet.
Somewhere down in the dungeon is her flour stack which I’ll have to took for.
The enamel counter top pulls out to a whopping 28″ which provides a great area to serve beverage/food on.
I found a blue flannel sheet at a thrift store and will be using for the chair covers. I love the fall look of blue and orange together.
She conveniently sit right outside our kitchen door which makes for easy entertaining.
Every time I go out on the deck she stands tall and proud, once again, because she is feeling useful.
Do you have a piece of furniture that not being used?
