Sucked into the IKEA WORLD

IKEA pub table with bar stools. These are only the beginning shots of both pieces, completed pics...when completed. Also notice the paint color of the kitchen, London Coach!
Things to be completed: Paint pub table a black satin finish to match chair legs.
Make slip covers for the two bar stools. The fabric is a pink and LIME GREEN floral print by Alexander Henry (similar to Amy Butler) I ordered it with the black and white fabric. We shall see how I do sewing...

The two pillows are for the hammock from Home Depot. I have been eyeing them forever! They are indoor outdoor, so I plan to keep them safe inside until the weather perks up!Close up of the chair... waiting for the new slip covers!

The next IKEA find, a piece of cabinetry for the gaping hole between the fridge and stove. (Used to be the wine cooler, which now lives in the mud room.)
After dragging Matt and Bubba around the store for about 2 hours, not to mention 2 trips we got all the pieces together, and assembled it! The butcher block top is being stained daily and takes about 2 weeks until it is usable! We also have double the amount of extra butcher block with 4 takers for cutting boards! I also got a huge butcher block cutting board for myself!
Waiting on new hardware to match the rest of the kitchen. And we put it on wheels so it can travel to the sink or wherever for meal prepping!
