Andi’s Kitchen: Cabinet Shopping Renovation Diary | Apartment Therapy

Apartment Therapy has a nice little ongoing feature called Renovation Diary. It’s a great place to find inspiration and possibly even learn something. Segment 6 is all about cabinet reuse. Enjoy!

Week 3 of construction was less exciting than weeks 1 & 2 — in a good way. On the weekend I visited the architectural salvage yards in Berkeley: Ohmega Salvage and Urban Ore. I was hunting for a vintage hutch, buffet, or piece of cabinetry that could serve as a pantry, with open storage for our dry food, as well as a pastry-making station. This older piece is important because it will bring character and provenance to a room full of IKEA cabinetry (which I happen to like, but in a different way).
