IKEA.... I love you.

Brian and I made a trip to IKEA recently and found some great things for our home. IKEA is definitely at the top of my list of favorite places. Even if I'm not buying anything, it's just fun to be there and walk through the store. Also.... they have a restaurant with SUPER cheap food. Brian and I ate a pretty yummy breakfast that cost $3.08 for the two of us! That is hard to beat. I started to wonder if people go to IKEA just to eat?

Brian's parents bought me these curtains for Christmas from Ikea for our kitchen, and I love them. They are so bright and cheery.We also bought this hanging rack and green coffee cups.
This was probably my most random purchase. I guess I lost my collandar in our move, so I bought this one at IKEA. It even has adjustable handles so you can set it over the sink. It's super handy. We also bought some IKEA glasses. These glasses are seriously indestructible. Our first 6 months of marriage, I think we broke at least 6 glasses. I bought these glasses at IKEA and we haven't broke any since.... and they are pretty inexpensive so I decided to buy a few more.

I am going to make one of our bedrooms into a craft/sewing room in the near future, and I found the perfect table at IKEA for it. We bought the legs for the table for $5 a piece, but we didn't buy the table top. I am planning on buying a piece of plywood and sanding it and painting it to make my own table soon.

I also bought this fun fabric for $1.99/yard! I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet, but I'll post some pictures when I figure it out.

As always, IKEA did not disappoint. If we ever get one in Nashville I might faint from excitement.


  1. Looks like a very awesome IKEA trip to me! You probably spent like what...$30 and got all of that awesome stuff! Just think of the decorating/organizational potential if we had one here!

  2. I suggest that you cut out each tree, glue them down to little cardboard stands, and make a forest.
