For awhile now, I have been hankering for a service counter in my kitchen. I had a buffet and china combo for awhile, but it was black and very, very heavy looking It also was of no use for serving during parties and such. I sold it to a friend a year or so ago and lived with a few "make-do" alternatives since then.
Mr. Bluebird and I love to entertain and often host buffet style parties. There never seemed enough room for all of the plates, utensils, desserts, slow cookers, etc. - let alone making it all look pretty! (With my cooking skills, it is important for it all to look pretty - no guarantee how it is going to taste, lol)
I did A LOT of searching for ideas - adding cabinets to match our existing to form a serving bar with storage and free-standing servers. It was kind of a Goldilocks situation for a long, long time - too big, too small, wrong style, wrong finish and the list went on. In the end, I decided on a freestanding server with wine display.
This beauty was delivered shortly before Christmas and I just made what I had on the walls work and added a few things to the top. It is a little over accessorized and crowded in this picture, but things have changed with a new (to me) vintage find. The look has definitely been simplified. I hope to show you the change on Monday.
Thanks for stopping by,
