An example from designer Leanne Ford: “A lot of older houses have corner cabinets in the dining rooms,” she says. “If you have one, take advantage of it. This is a great place to stash your prettiest glassware and liquor bottles. Paint the cabinet high-gloss black to modernize the space and give it an extra shine.”
