I have, over time changed the old fitted kitchen in my home for a freestanding kitchen. I would wait till a piece of furniture the right size turned up and then rip out the section and replace, that way there wasn't too much disruption plus my husband was slightly horrified that I wanted to rip out a perfectly good working kitchen so this way it was less painful for him. He's happy now though as it does open up the kitchen.
This is the first piece I replaced, it's actually the top part of a dresser, I just painted it white then added some feet and tiled the top to make it practical for kitchen use.
I took down all wall units and replace with shelves, this black shelf is actually part of a dressing table.
The hooks are on an old piece of skirting board, I just painted it white, added the hooks, painted the numbers then sanded the whole thing to distress.
Another wired chandelier, I'm addicted to making these, at Christmas they all get swapped around for little red ones.
A couple of jumble sale finds.
