custom cabinet

this hack is a dated. but i’ve just stumbled across it and i am a sucker for awesome mood shots. love the different hues on the frosted doors – how did you do that? and david, where did you get that chic clock? anyways, he says that “the frame is from the ikea bathroom selection, the sliding doors are from the kitchen collection and the feet, plinth and lights are from various other collections. … by combining furniture parts from different areas, she (his wife) was able to come up with a combination of units that fitted our measures. the total sum of shopping was around £500 and this included all kinds of ikea goodies like plants, carpets, baskets, swedish food and more boxes.” read more here.

    hey david
    great to hear from you. that's really neat – remote controlled lights. would love to see more pix of your home.

    Ehrm… the different hues are from various glasses. Moser glass have always gorgeous colours!

    The clock is from Purves & Purves.

    I forgot to mention that the lights are divided into two sections and are operated by a remote control.
