All looks great. Just be careful not to spill coffee in that 110v outlet. I have to disagree with Zinger...looks much better than OEM. Everything fits, no wires hanging out, caulk not filling in mitered corners LOL :D

I may have to steal the idea of the outlet in the kitchen. I like it!

I have a couple spots that look like I could put a door in and make a storage area. I'll have to have a look (now that I saw your door).

Can you open it and show us how it works?
