Kitchen cabinets can be expensive. Sometimes it pays to open your hunt to items that do the same thing without necessarily being labeled for the kitchen... They just might have a lower price tag even if they're higher in quality. For example, check out this kitchen that utilizes metal garage workbenches and shelving:

These cabinets' industrial purpose looks great in the home kitchen of the Gratz Industries blogger! A peg board backsplash on the workbench would normally hold workshop tools. Now, it's holding tools of another sort, a la Julia Child! Everything's heavy duty since it's built for heavy work, which means it'll hold up well to the demands of a kitchen. With its simple black color, we love the look and function of these no-nonsense garage items in the kitchen!

How about you? Do you like the look?
