Bottleneck at work:
Ah, it's just so hard to get your work done when the Out box is full.
Anyway, the plinth may be finished. It was actually quite easy.
The hardest part was getting the round leg clips lined up with the legs on the backsides of the plinth. If just one was off by 1/2", it would break off. Good thing they gave me waaaay too many in the base cabinet leg packages. Literally, they just snap into place... or 'off' as the case may be.
Odd how such a simple thing really makes a room look more finished.
Of course, now the cats are going to have to find a new place to hide their mousies.
The only question left is the issue of the plastic foot runners for the plinth. I like the way the plinth looks now, without the plastic runners, but I'm willing to see what it looks like with perhaps some brown spray paint on the plastic. I know they're designed to protect the plinth, but they just look wrong.
I think it's only the second time Ikea and I have disagreed on design.
