Did you notice anything different about our furniture in the dining room tour? Yeah, the baker’s rack is no longer a baker’s rack. Just a couple of updates gave us a whole new look- we now have a sideboard!
The first, most obvious change was to remove the top. I still love the look of the baker’s rack, but my lazy self was tired of getting up on a stool to dust everything. Less to dust, no climbing => win, win.
The mirror hung over the sofa in our Georgia home. Since the style seems too ornate for our cottage-y sideboard, I made a quick change with new knobs from Hobby Lobby. Well, it would have been a quick change if I hadn’t needed to make trips to three different HLs to find enough. Here it is in progress:
The new knobs coordinate beautifully with the color and rusty patina of the chandelier, but the sideboard still seems too casual for the mirror. It’ll do for now, though. If I had to choose between the two, I would repurpose the sideboard and keep the mirror. I think.
No birds this time, but another woodland creature found its way into the dining room. Bunny under glass, anyone?
Removing the top of our baker’s rack cost nothing (yay!), and buying the knobs at 50% off gave me an easy and budget-friendly way to update this piece of furniture. It may not be perfect, but hey, we’re all a work in progress.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 NAS
By the way, I’m planning to sell the baker’s rack top, so if you’re interested, let me know. 🙂
