I used to LOVE Ikea. I thought I was really over it, I had out grown it. My style had matured past cheap sweedish furniture. I went again last week and have a visa bill to prove that I. AM. NOT. I still LOVE this store. I mean, I get serious home improvement lust as I stroll the three miles of showrooms and marketplaces in that store.
When I go I want to replace my faucets, gut my kitchen, buy new couches and new curtains. I want to re-organize all of my stuff, and buy cool orange storage boxes to put it in. I want to put new nobs on all of my cabinets and on all of my dressers, and I want new clocks, and new desks. And it’s all soooo cheap!
So…I settled for the below:
A new Kitchen Island
Curtains for the sliding door in the kitchen
Lamps for our bedside table
Lamp shades, pink sheets, and picture frames (still without pictures) for Isabelle's room:
and a zester and a veggie knife...which I don't have a picture of!Of course, I had to make the trip while Conrad was out of town ;) To make matters worse, they opened an Ikea in Cincinnati…where I venture at least twice a month for work. I ask you, who can resist $5 lamp shades?
And, not to mention, while Conrad was on his painting kick we painted the kids bathroom...thus completes ALL rooms in the house!
