What is really amazing, to me at any rate, is that this little gem was created using product from Ikea. Yup, you read that right ... the big blue and yellow shed! The cabinets and the integrated appliances (except the LG fridge) are all from Ikea. The sink and faucet is from Blanco's Silgranit line (and they are Gorgeous with a capital G). Even the light fixtures and the dining table and chairs come from the Swedish manufacturer of all things hip. The floor is slate and backsplash is stainless (from the Tile Shoppe).
I am a very lucky girl, however, to have had a lot of help from my good friends, Colin and Justin, in pulling the look together. Oh, alright, truth be told they are 100 per cent responsible for the look, even pitching in to help me paint following the renovation.
Like I said, I am a very ucky girl!
