Vintage Kitchen Chest
Refit a flea-market find with new pulls and an aluminum top.
Heidi fell in love with this chest, acquired through a friend who worked at a university science lab. "Usually I only buy vintage if all it needs is a good scrub," she says. "But this piece was too good to pass up — I was determined to make it work." Now it houses linens, flatware and baking utensils. Above, basic Ikea shelves are dressed up with decorative wood brackets.
