We stopped in over at Manhattan Nest to see what Daniel has been up to. To our surprise he's tackled a rather large issue in his kitchen. With the help of his partner Max, the two assembled this cabinetry set from IKEA.

They made modifications to the depth of the pieces to help out with the countertops and for personal preference.
