Cabinet Fever II:Revenge of the Thrift

I went to the thrift store, as I do every week, immersed in my search for the perfect kitchen cabinet to fit in the 30" opening above the dishwasher. I found a traditional oak cabinet, 24", not gorgeous, but certainly paintable and such. It was only $20 so I emailed John a pic and asked him if I should get it. He told me I should go to IKEA and get what I want. Instead of thrifting, as I had done for SIX MONTHS!!, I could just order whatever...

So I started that search. I used the IKEA software which already has my kitchen uploaded, and picked a few things. Then the truth comes out...

As I show John the many options, (it's me so it really is MANY), he finally tells me that he doesn't really want the cabinets I was looking at, he just hated the thrift cabinet so much, he decided to offer me the crazy option of "whatever" not realizing the cost to get me to leave the store and never look back.

Well, I showed him. I found these enameled metal cubes at The Container Store and his guilty conscience bought them for me.
