Garage Turned Guest Cottage With Budget Ikea Kitchenette

by Gardenista
Here's a garage turned guest cottage featuring a really affordable kitchenette. Here's what you need to recreate the look.
A garage in Mill Valley, CA is turned into a comfy cottage for houseguests. We admired the way it relies heavily on Ikea to make modern use of every inch of space (giving houseguests an excuse to stay out of sight till after breakfast).
The back wall is covered in 4-by-8-foot Wainscot Panels ($19.75 each) from Home Depot.
Braced to deal with the plumbing? An Edsvik chrome faucet is $49.99 and a Fyndig Single Bowl Sink is $26.98; both from Ikea. They're mounted on a 1.5-inch-thick beechwood Numerär Countertop ($195 for a 73 1/4-inch length from Ikea).
A nickel-planted Fintorp dish drainer ($14.99 from Ikea) attaches to the wall with two screws and holds a removable tray.
