Three Things; Finds – Repurposed 50s Kitchen

50s Kitchen repurposed as craft workstation

Our find today is Sue’s 1950s kitchen which she keeps in her bedroom. We are going to have a look inside today to see what she keeps in it!

No space for a craft or art workstation? Think again!

This is the unit all closed up. it looks pretty smart and unassuming with its thick cream paint. The kitchen came from North Wales via eBay, it was a present from her youngest son for her birthday. Sue had been looking for one for some time as she wanted to use it as a workstation. Whilst the new studio was being built We packed away a lot of our art materials but Sue needed a small space she could still use for working and this is it.

50s kitchen repurposed as sewing workstation

Here is the unit open, the central ‘door’ folds down forming a desk area and revealing loads and loads of storage. Look at all the cubby holes for thread, bobbins and fabrics. This is the real beauty of the unit, you can have art and craft galore all busy and in progress but as soon as you close the doors you have a calm and peaceful bedroom.

Pin cushion teacups

Sue has a bit of a thing about vintage haberdashery here she has made a pin cushion out of a vintage teacup. It is great to have beautiful precious things like this that can be used and enjoyed but also shut up away from small fingers when necessary.

What do you think of our small space creative workstation?
