BUT we took one look at the Ivar cabinets (at $90 each) at Ikea and the lightbulb went off. These could be perfect! And a quick search through Pinterest confirmed that people are taking these cabinets and giving them a real custom look!

Digging through all the pretty ideas on Pinterest, here's my current DREAM scenario ...
|The Wall of Cabinet Inspiration|
I also really adore the shelving on the wall above the cabinets from my inspiration image. I'd love to fan out beloved books and items we're picked up from our travels ... make it a fun display.
I had this all simmering on the back-burner, knowing we'd get to it sometime in 2017, when we can start on the next phases. But there might be a change brewing, because we're talking about picking up the cabinets this week so Mick, our contractor, can help us mount them to the wall.
It's so exciting we're getting to this part of the planning. With the walls and everything up, now it's really time start thinking about furniture and the pretty stuff.
Paint and tile is complete.
