As I’ve written before, it all started with an idea, continued with approx. 1 1/2 years of saving, several drives to IKEA (which is several hours away), several marital discussions (usually culminating in me saying “my kitchen is NOT a democracy”) and several hours of “construction” on both of our parts.

I love this cabinet! By the way, there is one more drawer that is not in the photo – I have not installed it yet….there is sooooo much storage in there.
