I'm so delinquent in posting! Eric and I spent Memorial Day week in the Outer Banks getting some much needed R&R. Meanwhile Phil was back home assembling the basement kitchen. Awesome! Of course we were missing some IKEA pieces, so we went this past Sunday and retured bunch of stuff and order even more than we returned! If you can't tell, the base cabinets are black and the upper ones are frosted glass. You won't see any of the birch insides once the coverpanels and appliances are in. We're looking at getting white Silestone down here to lighten things up. Also, did you know IKEA cabinets have slow-close hardware? So cool!
