Vintage Kitchen Buffet

A secondhand cabinet from Craigslist stands in as a stylish and budget-savvy island.

The wood in this buffet was in good condition, so H&H style editor Michael Penney made the uncharacteristic decision not to gunk it up with paint. The pegboard — an homage to Julia Child's kitchen — offers valuable storage space.
