Finally Lovin’ IKEA

I have been to IKEA many times and bought a little something. Last year I bought a shelf for Sophia’s room which I love.  But overall never really enjoyed the process.  I tend to get overwhelmed easily in large store. (Which is why I don’t do Wal-Mart).

Well yesterday was a new experience.  I found some really cool things.  Plus I bought another shelf, inspired by The Nester.  And, I LOVE it.  What a great improvement to my room. WOO HOO. Here is a peak at my new acquisitions.

The shelving unit is what I have been wanting to do for so long but since we are trying to sell our house I didn’t want to spend the money.  Well now it will probably help sell it.  The toys aren’t all over. Yeah!  I also got the pillows.  The are gorg!  and only $15. each.  Embroidered and great bright colors on white!

Oh this is my Valentine Mantel.  I guess its time to change it but I was proud of how nice it turned out.

I got a few toys too. So cheap and Sophia loves this. IKEA 010

I got the white tray and I think it goes.? IKEA 011

I got some fabric discards in the AS-IS section that where $3-$5 for large pieces.  They are actually cushion covers.  I have a few re-fashioning ideas.  We will see  how they turn out.  This was an idea from one of my favorite reads…MADE.  She is too cool. She is doing a series this month all about BOYS and stuff to make for them.  Last years was great.


Have a great day!

Oh no, now you are making me want to go and take a trip to our Ikea :) I looove the new shelf and pillows! We so need something like that too! and isn't that train set the cutest? We got that the last time we were there too!
Can't wait to see what you'll create with your new fabric finds!
Happy Sunday!
