I love this bookcase like damn and whoa. It’s perfect for Luke’s room. Problem is, I can’t find the darned thing, or even anything similar. His room is really tiny and the bookcase with drawers would be perfect beside his bed. And he really, really needs drawers beside his bed. Otherwise I find Legos and other teeny tiny toys IN his bed. Have you seen anything similar? I don’t care about the color as I can always paint it. Apparently the original is some custom interior design deal that probably cost more than my house. I’ve thought about making them, but I’m not good enough to build drawers, so I need to find something like it. Any ideas?
After much debate we’ve decided how to remodel our kitchen. We will do it in stages starting with installing a new hardwood floor. After that we will put in an IKEA pantry consisting of three parts; a base with a countertop and a bar sink. A tall pull out pantry and two glass upper cabinets. Our kitchen is 25 feet long, a true galley. Having an extra sink at this end will allow us to set up a “beverage center” with a coffee pot and microwave right next to the small breakfast nook. We’ll be keeping our old cabinet carcasses, just replacing the doors and eliminating the bulkhead. We also intend to get rid of the wall betwwen the kitchen and dining room. We will install another pantry cabinet next to the oven. We have already bought a new refrigerator and a dishwasher. I have my fantasy of buying one of those huge Viking flamethrower ovens but that really doesn’t suit our ifestyle or budget. We are trying to keep our budget beloe $1k for each appliance. We seriously scored at the Sears Scratch and Dent store and got a Samsung French door refrigerator for $900! Hope to do similar on an oven.
This is the second time we’ve redone a kitchen in stages. It really works for us and helps avoid a buttload of debt. Ideally it will look very much like the endwall shown in the last photo. Not as wide, of course as we’re using only one base cabinet, but that’s what we’re going for.
So Whit and I just bought a new bed, and we love it! It’s the first large piece of furniture we ever bought new. When we were searching, we saw this bed
And we really liked to two tall pedestal nightstands, but we wanted a padded headboard, so we passed. I was convinced we could find or make something similar. So checking out my fave site in the world, Ikea Hackers, I came across these
We plan to take out the two middle drawers to make a shelf. We will still have the two lower drawers for all our stuff. Better yet, the top opens. I’ll put a power strip in there for all our chargeable stuff! Too cool for school. They’re only $179 each! I keep telling y’all, don’t sleep on Ikea. And Ikea Hackers? Bliss!
This room will be too beautiful when I finish. We’ll have a wall of pale blue pinch-pleated drapes. ($40 a pair at JCP). And the walls will be fern green. Can’t wait to post pics!
