I would like finished wood, instead of the black or distressed white painted one here. A deep, cherry wood finish would be nice. I think it could be made by repurposing old bedposts or other wood from old furniture. I would add a side pocket to hold wooden spoons and the other tall tools often used. For that, I thought some nice scroll work, also from repurposed woodwork. The small drawers could store all the everyday silverware. If this were on wheels it would be so handy to pull it over when you finish washing the silverware and dishes (or unload the dishwasher). All the everyday use things could be in here which would leave more cupboard space for small appliances. Very nice for people who don't like leaving anything on the counters. Unlike me, I like having my coffee assortment waiting for me where I can see them.
I pulled it out of the dishwasher, still hot. Did not think but went ahead and poured in a little coffee cream, cold from the fridge. I heard that little ping and, sure enough, my glass mug had a huge crack, splitting the bottom and up each side. I am annoyed with myself. I should have had my brain on but I was working on autopilot. I found more of them. But, they are not available for online shopping. I did find some on eBay, but the shipping is expensive, beyond considering. So, I will just wait until I am somewhere there is an Ikea store. Funny, Ikea is so popular but this will be the first time I have ever had a plan to shop there. But, the mugs (called beer tankards) are in stock.
