Here it is.... my 99.5% finished IKEA kitchen
I still need to clean up my tile haze, but here it is. Feels so good to be finished! I can't thank all you wonderful GWebbers enough! So many people helped me here and on IKEA fans.
Went with a bisque 2"X 4" tile. Hardest decision of the entire kitchen.
I made my tiny 8' X 9' kitchen seem much larger by extending the cabinets across the dining room wall. We also took down the high bar and made it one large work surface/bar area.
I designed the kitchen. My DH and I built the cabs. Our handyman did everything else, except the countertops and tile.
The total cost $14,100
