Up-cycled kitchen cart
The bulk of work on this one entailed repurposing a kitchen cart to fit into a galley kitchen to answer the client’s request for more counter space.
Started by removing the top before slicing it down the middle to create a narrow console. Repurposing/Upcycling has begun to feel more and more like a moral imperative when renovating. While it rarely ends up saving labor hours as far as delivering the functionality, an advantage I love is leveraging finishing touches like bevels, knobs, sliders. At a certain point all that detailing and hardware is just a repetitive nuisance you don’t really want to be bothered with.
What became the top is one of those thick pine timbers typically used to shore up street trenches.
Cut down the old top to replace an existing counter addition that was a bit makeshift.
