Lush?

So we had been on the lookout for a bakers rack since we moved into the house in 2006. We have this one wall in the kitchen area that would be perfect. But it was seriously like the story of Goldilocks... Everything we found was either too big or too small. It wasn't till the fabulous makers at Ikea shined the light on us in the as-is section and revealed to us the perfect object for our vacant wall! The wall space we were working with is approx. 36'' wide and 14.5'' deep. Well what do you know, the Markor cabinet is 35'' wide and 13 3/8'' deep. It is just right!

After

I finally got to pull out all the fabulous glassware from the wedding! Our gorgeous Waterford Bar for 2 set, the Mikasa Cheers collection Martini Glasses, and the handpainted martini glasses too!

I know it makes us look like alchohol indulgent lushes but it makes me happy and I think it looks classy. I'll probably be pulling out some of the lovely glass vases and bowls and display here as well instead of the longaberger baskets... either that or some cute boxes with lots of color! (speaking of color- that plate/placemat/cup etc. has also been adorned with another plate from ikea with pretty light blue, magenta, black, and white designs. I love it!)



Cheers!
