Our kitchen (part 5)

Part 5 had to wait several weeks because when we got ready to install the last cabinet - this giant one - we found it broken in about 6 places. Seriously - how does that happen?

After several calls to ikea and several days of waiting, we had a replacement scheduled to be delivered in 2 weeks. Not great, but not too bad considering we live 100 miles from Ikea and the cabinet weighs about 150 lbs and is 7 feet long, so returning it wasn't really an option.

But this last cabinet was pretty easy to install. We used these toggle bolts and they were pretty easy to use and seemed to go in securely. And now we are so happy with our new kitchen!

This area is our new "landing strip" for keys, wallets and phones.

We are so happy with how everything turned out. We still have a few things to do: cut new kick panel for the tall cabinet (its too tall for the stock molding), apply trim around the fridge panel and cabinet, caulk in a few places but we are so happy with how it turned out (and we are so happy to be done!!).

I'll post some of the interior organization in my next (and last) post - to me that's the best part!
