Oh Jeanine - what a story!! That guy sure is cute but I sure as hell would have had a hard time seeing that if he was in MY house. I would have freaked out!

Great post!

Kyle here.

I'm so sorry about the misspelling of Starkville. That's bad.

And to clear up the "poppy" confusion, I meant poppy as in playful and snazzy, not the color of the flower. I take a fair amount of poetic license in my writing ;-).

This made me smile Jeanine. I do love the idea of being spoken to this way in the morning. Delightful.

Annki -

Looks like they may not be selling that color anymore but I just found a variant on a different fabric site:

I don't know exactly how much weight the cabinets can take but they feel very strong.


Apartment Therapy Boston | DIY: Using IKEA Cabinets for a Kitchen Storage Bench

Thanks for all your comments.

To answer your questions:

1) The end panel of bench isn't white - it's the same tone as doors

2) I do have the bench located in a slightly strange spot, making it so the far right cabinet isn't AS accessible but it's totally fine for rarely used stuff. Sometimes I go for slightly "strange" if it means gaining something really valuable to me (location by that window). And there's nothing permanent about it so I can change things around when the whimsy strikes. Oh and does it strike!

3) It's a totally sturdy set-up (not affixed to the wall). It's the depth of the pieces (24 inches) that make the set-up completely sturdy. I guess my floor is also naturally level in that spot.

4)It's hard to tell from the photos but I used really small bumper feet to raise the bench up high enough that it seamlessly clears the carpet.

5) I didn't want handles. Wanted a less clunky look that that. It's not the least bit difficult to open the doors.

6) The pillow top is from Joann Fabrics.

7) The small floral pillows were made with this fabric: Freespirit Fabrics, designed by Anna Maria Horner. Fabric Series - "Drawing Room", Specific Fabric name -
"Green Branching Out")
