Copycat Challenge: Kitchen Storage


I wasn’t quite sure what my copycat project was going to be until a few days ago when Peggy @ The Decorating Files shared a post entitled “5 Stylish Kitchen Storage Ideas.”

I’m very pleased with the results.

And, I think replacing the door with a basket really adds to the French Country look I’m going for in my kitchen.

Can’t you just picture a runner on that floor space?

Until next time,

    This looks fabulous, Sharon! Love the basket! You are definitely adding to your French Country look. Thank you so much for the mention. It made my day to see that I inspired someone to try something new in their home! Glad too that the copy-cat challenge pushed you to do it sooner rather than later. Hope you have a great weekend!
