I'm really enjoying these posts. I had considered Ikea for my own kitchen renovation after I relocated back to my 1947 house, but didn't want to replace all the cabinets since they were solid wood and half of them were in good shape.

The cabinets under the kitchen sink had rotted out during my absence, so I hired a local cabinetmaker to match to the remaining good ones. He did a superb job and the cost was competitive with big-box stores. I also found hardware online, to match the original drawer pulls.

Although Ikea can offer some great deals, I would advise anyone thinking about a small renovation to consider using a local woodworker. Often you'll get great craftsmanship and exactly what you want, with potentially higher quality materials. And he worked with me on a price I could manage.

Great post. I love unusual lanterns and ways to light spaces, so this hits the spot.... uh, garden.
