All I can say is Whew!! It was so busy at IKEA today! I really thought nobody would be there today and boy was I wrong. I bought a pine bookcase that has a pull out bin on the bottom to organize some of my craft stuff. My husband thought I'd like the pine especially "because you can paint it" wink wink wink! He likes to tease me about painting stuff since I paint so many things! Of course it has to be put together so I'll take a picture when that's done. There were so many neat storage and work surfaces I would have loved to have bought! But I'm just going to use the table I already have and my sewing table I got at Goodwill.
I couple of people said they don't have an IKEA so I took my camera and took a few pictures.
I was going to get that unit above but it wasn't in stock and I didn't want to have wait for them to get some in. The glass in the upper part is optional you can just have open cubes
Those shelves have a lip - I'm thinking about getting a few.
These were some decorative bowls that they put on the wall that I thought looked very pretty.
For all you fans of pink - they have a light pink couch!
I think this would look great in my bedroom with all the black toile I have in there. Plus it's scale is small so it's good for a small space.
This one would be good too!
Some dining chairs. Very pretty but I personally thought they were kind of low.
I loved this bench! I really like the way benches look with dining tables but I wonder how comfortable it would to be seated right next to someone. Could you get three people next to each other on a bench like this and be comfortable?
This I just thought was kind of odd. They had these round pieces of cowhide & some other faux animal hides that they just placed on chairs like cushions. Only they have no cushioning so I guess it's just for looks!
They really have some of the best kitchen storage ideas I've seen anywhere!
How neat would it be to have fresh herbs growing under your cabinets!
They have a really interesting lighting department, especially if you like a more modern look. I thought this light fixture was interesting because it looked like icicle lights wrapped around a circular frame (of course I thought "I can make that!).
A cute petite chandelier!
It was a fun couple of hours which we topped off by having lunch in their restaurant. I bought a couple of things that I'll show in another post since this one is so long! I would have bought some fabric had I been able to find an employee anywhere in the store to cut it for me! They were sorely understaffed today. Maybe next time! Have a great weekend everyone!
