It is a look that I've always loved, especially when it is in a cheery colour.
Or a lovely pale colour with chippy paint.
Maybe even a sunny yellow for a little punch of colour in a bathroom.
I even love taller piece, especially like this one with the countertop. This is a great way to add another work surface in a kitchen or dining room.
I am also a big fan of glass fronted upper cabinets in kitchen like this one.
Although I would prefer a piece that has character and a little wear and tear, I would be happy to find a new piece like this and refinish it.
Or maybe use some reclaimed wood to make my own rustic version.
In her new home, she used the cabinet in her front entryway.
Two other great IKEA pieces are the Hemnes Glass Cabinets with full glass doors ($325 US) and half glass doors ($375 US).
I plan to still keep a lookout for an old cabinet that just needs a little love and fresh paint, or maybe even attempt to make it myself (which may end up in a pile of wood and broken glass).
Do you have a piece of furniture or decor that you've been on the lookout for and never seem to find?
