home project dining room

As promised here are (finally) some pictures of lovely BESTA storage from Ikea on our dining room wall. 

We love how it turned out and even though it still looks bare it has soooo much potential. We got the white high gloss doors for everything and threw in some glass to break it up a little. Our kitchen island uses the same high gloss finish so it ties in nicely. We also varied the heights to give it more visual interest. There are two drawers and everything else is just a door. As you can see it came with a lot of extra shelves which I haven't all put in yet. Gotta figure out what to put in there first. BESTA is not the cheapest solution, especially not when you go with the high gloss or glass doors but there are tons of color options and even glass doors that you can add your own fabric panels to. The hubby managed to hang all the cabinets by himself I only had to make marks for him. I put together all the drawers and hardware on the doors. Definitely no fun when you're 32 weeks preggers. 


  1. it looks amazing!! minimalist but not boring!! well done :)

  2. Wow!! What a fantastic contemporary dining room! Really unique and clean lines. LOVE IT!

  4. love besta, esp the high gloss white! we just moved, and were considering getting besta for the dining room as well, but for now it seems that we're good on the furniture.
