It's come time to make another Ikea purchase. Our extra dishes and stemware are haphazardly placed in three separate locations and it's time to condense it down. Our current setup involves a bar cabinet and an adjacent open shelf. While I love the idea of open shelving, it's really not practical with earthquakes, crowded parties and children.
The open slant shelf is going away and this BESTA unit is going in the far left corner next to the existing bar cabinet. I wish Ikea still carried frosted doors so everything could match, but alas they do not.
I recently picked up an Ikea Family card, which is a free discount card. It took all of 2 minutes to get from an automated machine. It's saving me $45 on this purchase. Just passing the tip along to fellow Ikea fans.
