So… I guess you can tell I’ve been browsing on the web… but I can’t give cb2 love and not give Ikea some! Oh how I wish wish WISH there was an Ikea near me! I only get to go when I fly home to mom and dad’s for a visit… It might be a good thing though… I’m pretty sure I would spend the majority of time just wondering around the store…. dreaming… and then probably spending…. lots and lots of money…. you get the picture. Unfortunately, I can’t even order most of the things I want online, so I either get my parents to buy it and mail it to me, or I wait until I get to shop at one myself. It probably saves me a lot! =) I did get my bed spread and throw for my bedroom there. I LOVE THEM! They are the first two items I’m sharing below.
Now for the new things I want…..
Check out this awesome picture!
And I have drooling over this pendant lamp for forever! I think it would be adorable over my dining room table!!
I’m also loving this nightstand! It’s only $29.99!
How cool is this vase and matching bowl?? TOO COOl! =)
Well, that’s all I have for you from Ikea today… if you like anything, click on the picture and it will take you to the Ikea website! I guess I’ll go back to my drooling… and dreaming… =)
We got the grey bed spread and the European shams (in a set), and the white throw, at the foot of the bed, from Ikea. Well, actually, my parents bought them for us for Christmas. I absolutely love it! It’s very obviously not finished yet. We still need the headboard, pillows, and a bed skirt for the bed itself. After the bed is done, I guess it will be on to painting the walls, getting new nightstands and new dresser, then accessorizing! But, this is a start!
OK…. it took me waaaaaayy to long to get these posted! But here they are! Finally! This is the dining room put back together after painting the red walls. Yes, there is still so much work to be done in here, but as I said before it will have to be done a little at a time…. and I am SO NOT patient!
By the way… I got this table and the four chairs at Ikea for $100 when I got married in 2007. Still love the table (even though it’s a bit small for company!) AND I picked up this wooden candelabra at a Cracker Barrel. It was a part of their Halloween stuff last year and I got it 80% off… it was like $4 or something like that. I love it! I’m kicking my self for not buying more of them. They would have been fun to decorate with for a party! I wonder how easy they would be to make….. Hhmmmm….
Now I need to find something to cover this lovely thing right smack in the middle of the wall…. yes, I know… it’s terrible. I do have my eye on a big round clock at hobby lobby though…. when I have the extra $40, I might just get it.
