Roadside Find to My Kitchen!

I saw this piece for free on the side of the road and thought.... 
I could definitely do something with that! So, in my Jeep it went! 
I have a galley kitchen, so I have a bureau in my kitchen for extra storage and this fit perfectly on top! I was so excited, now the bureau looks like a hutch! 
I am re-doing my kitchen cabinets in white, stainless steel appliances 
and greige walls, which is still in process.


Here are some before pics...


It's solid pine and just needed a few coats of fresh white paint.


This was just what my kitchen needed!


 My milk glass collection went on top...


...along with my black and white scale, keeping with the color scheme.


I pulled my canisters out of the cabinet, 
I found these at a flea market years ago for $6!


Putting the toaster oven here, freed up some counter space.


My spices fit underneath, along with a bowl for fruit.


My cook books fit on the shelves inside and my mail gets hidden in there too!


This bureau I picked up at my favorite junk shop a few years back for $25


I love the way my kitchen is starting to come together!
