My thoughts on old painted wardrobes used as kitchen storage; ideal. Not only do they provide versatile storage but also add interest and give the space such a homey feel. I recently convinced a friend to get one for her kitchen. When it was first brought in, it seemed huge but once the shock of it's size subsided, it was obvious that it will be perfect. And really, the amount of storage it creates is amazing.
