There are no fewer than three Ikea's within driving distance of my grandma (and by driving distance I mean in Montana miles -- we have to drive everywhere, so a few hours isn't a big deal), so after the beach, on the way to grandma's house, we stopped at Ikea.
Earlier this year, Morgan and I went to Phoenix for my birthday and visited the Ikea there. I'll chalk it up to it being our first visit, but in Arizona we spent 3 hours (!) browsing! This time we were a little less shell-shocked and made it through in much less time (with my wallet a bit lighter).
|Love the light, modern look! Didn't buy :-(|
|Mirrors on the bottom? Yes!|
|I thought about getting these for a jewelry holder diy I saw on Pinterest. |
But at $12.99, they are too expensive.
|Morgan hard at work (and recently tanned).|
|I could use this awesome shoe rack!|
|A desk chair named after me!|
|Pendant light that Morgan loved|
So in the end, what did we leave with?
Morgan: a large, white rug in the clearance section that had been a display (and yes, he was able to get it back to New Mexico in his suitcase), decorative boxes, a clearance section lamp, kitchen shears, potato (or patata, as Morgan says) peeler, and under cabinet lights.
|A Fixa screwdriver/drill, magazine holders, a notebook, a curtain panel, and napkins for grandma (not pictured).|
|Love the design!|
|And look, how awesome is this? The pages are unlined and this lined page is|
inserted behind the sheet you are working on.
|My curtain panel was on sale! I thought it was a sample, but it was actually out of its package.|
|And look what came to my Aunt's house the day Morgan left... the 2013 Ikea book!|
|After all this shopping, look who was tuckered out - Ricky!|
Do you feel the same way about Ikea? I love it!!
