Materials: Akurum Abstrakt kitchen cabinets and Ikea red pillows
Description: Akurum Abstrakt 36″ wide x 24″ deep x 15″ high cabinets, which would normally be used above a refrigerator, were placed on the floor on a 1-1/2″ high base covered with a matching Akurum base kick ripped down to size.
Holes were cut in fronts of 2 of the doors in the corner cabinet and trimmed out with the iron-on Ikea trim strips. The 2 kitty cats in the household each have their own cubby space with red Ikea pillows inside the corner cabinets.
Additional cabinets of the same size are installed around the remainder of the room perimeter and topped with custom cushions and red Ikea pillows to make window seats with storage inside the hinged door Akurum Abstrakt cabinets.
