Before and after

Out of all the rooms in my apartment, the kitchen is the one that I like the least. It's actually pretty big, but it's just not a good layout. I guess all old homes have horrible kitchen layouts. There is a bare wall opposite the door that just needed... something. I was running low on storage space, so I decided to fill the empty wall with a Billy bookcase from Ikea, to store all my extra kitchen stuff. I added two glass doors to it, and I really, really love it!

May I please know where you purchased your trash can from? I have been looking all over for it and cannot find it. I love your kitchen!!

I bought it at bed bath and beyond but I don't think they have them anymore. The company that makes the trash can is simple human.
