My name is...Slim Storage!

(extra credit to any of you who got my Eminem reference in the title of this post. I'm such a geek.)

If you're searching for a slim storage piece that has a lot of character, but doesn't take up too much space, look no further. We've found it!

This slim cabinet comes from one of our favorite manufacturers, The Uttermost!
It measures 42" wide x 32" high, and get this...
only 10" deep!
It's perfect for those tight spaces in the hallway, stair landing or powder room. Hang a mirror above it and place it in the entry for shoes, umbrellas, pet leashes, etc. It could even work in a small dining nook where you'd prefer a buffet but must accommodate for circulation around dining chairs. two of them on either side of your fireplace to enhance the centered focal point without taking up too much space for seating.
So many ideas...I know this piece has got to be the perfect answer to a few design dilemmas out there!

Coffee anyone?

Before the days of triple half caff, no foam, soy lattes with 2 pumps of caramel...
great cups of coffee began by sending the delicious, roasted beans through a grinding mill much like the ones pictured here.

We have recently scouted out some great new vintage finds, including these antique coffee grinders.
They're sure to be a conversation piece on your kitchen counter of coffee buffet!
Come by soon to select your favorite!

Getting Carried Away...

I had to share this great new accessory! How cute are these glass bottles with wire carrier?
One would look fantastic on your kitchen island with fresh-clipped buds from the yard.

Thinking outside the box? 
  • use them to display and sort utensils on the buffet at your next gathering
  • maybe to sort colored pencils and pens on your desk
  • consider them mini carafes, label them and fill each with wine at your next tasting party!
