The space is empty no longer!
My wonderful husband spent most of Sunday afternoon putting the new shelving together. The only thing he didn't get completed was the drawer in the middle bottom - they didn't have the front in stock, so that means another trip to Ikea sometime in the future.
Mimi cat wasn't too enthused with the process - it was too noisy for her with the vacuum and drill running on and off all afternoon. But she was willing to do a final inspection, as you can see from this picture!
I also didn't get drawer/door pulls, so the towels are in place so we can get those sections open to finish putting the handles on.
Stay tuned for loading of the shelves!
