Make an Antique Piece Work for You

Designer Samantha Lyman wanted to give a new California kitchensome historic pieces like this antique armoire. It was originally only 12 inches deep inside — not big enough for large platters and big bowls. So Lyman set it into the cabinetry to give it more depth. The cabinet-maker removed the back and extended it to 26 inches inside. Then, Lyman painted the interior a darker color to conceal the difference.

Have you re-purposed a piece of furniture to work in your kitchen?
