Craftsman Kitchen the budget way
I'm a huge fan of Ikea - my first visit (age 6) was a near spiritual experience. So finding craftsman/steampunk style stuff there always makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Beautiful, clean lines and they come in brass! Because all things are better in brass.
I'm always a fan of more counter space and moveability and this has them both along with two more drawers. Aren't those clean lines gorgeous? And if it's a bit too plain for you then some paint and stencils can fix that in minutes. Imagine gears stenciled on with a darker wood stain or maybe a mad scientist's doodlings on that top.
I want to fill this shelf up with lots and lots of glass canisters and penny-candy style jars, all full of eccentric stuff. Though, more likely, they'll just have rice, sugar, and cereal - but a girl can dream. They'll at least need some great apothecary style labels.
