My house is an old 1940's Cape Cod, and as much as I love the style AND my house, I have to admit that storage hasn't been ideal, especially in my tiny kitchen and dining room. There was a pantry, but it was deep and very hard to see into. There were three cabinets for dishes, which I suppose would be adequate IF I didn't collect dishes.... So, this past year for Christmas, my mom and brother arrranged the ultimate gift for a dish collector: a new giant cabinet built into my dining room!
It pairs nicely with the vintage walnut cabinet that was my great, great grandmother's to hold a decent bit of my Fiesta collection.
If we peek around the corner into the hallway, we can see the new shallow shelves to show off other pretties!
