freestanding kitchen storage from wall cabinets

this is from alex, editor with this old house, where she blogs about the work she does on her apartment.

“i took 6 varde wall cabinets and stacked them one on top of the other to make some floor to ceiling storage in a tight space. basically, i turned the bottom three upside down so they open by flipping down, then bolted them together and put legs on the whole piece. the top three open upward and hang from the wall, but they’re positioned directly on top of the bottom piece, so the whole thing looks like one tall freestanding cabinet.”


love how it fits so snugly into the space. link.
