This piece was actually discontinued a little while later, but I saved the image in my computer for future inspiration. This cube cubby retailed for around $300 at the time, and the image I had saved had 4 of them stacked together, 2 on the bottom, 2 on the top for a whopping $1200 buckaroos! One could dream right???
Yesterday afternoon I took a drive up to Ikea and grabbed one.CAUTION: This thing is HEAVY! Once I brought it home and put it together, I realized the shelves in the middle were too narrow to put a metal name plate on like the PB one. Bummer, right?
So today while at Home Depot getting more landscape fabric (no the island is not done, yet!) I went over to the molding aisle to see if I could find something to attach to the shelving unit.They sure did!It was a thin piece of exterior siding, same color, perfect size and CHEAP! $7 and change for 3 pieces. So I came home, measured, mitered, and stuck them on with white gorilla glue.
I’m probably going to need to caulk the edges a bit, but for now it’s fine.The finishing touch was those labels, and if you haven’t yet been to Staples, now is the time my friends! Martha Stewart has saved the day yet again with her metal book plates.
