A Trip to Ikea Definitely Impresses

Friday, January 07, 2011

#3 and #8 are what I own already and have to say I absolutely love them! The bar stools are what I use everyday - I am sitting on one right now as I write this post. And #8 is displayed in our powder room and linen closet. I got them in both red and cream. I need to go back for more!

A few nights ago, I somehow managed to drag my husband to Ikea (a cheap meal reeled him in) with the goal of picking up some frames for photos that I got printed. There is a major lack of family photos (seriously, I think we only have 1 family photo up) and I decided that enough was enough and something would have to be done about it. We were able to get a good amount of frames on the cheap (11 frames of differing sizes under $80!) but didn't get frames for all of the photos since it's good to have diversity even among photo frames. *On a side note, to add even more variety to the ones we bought, I'll be painting a few of the frames to better complement the photos chosen for them.

Well, I couldn't help but peruse other aisles besides the frame aisle and am I glad I did. I was able to find some hidden gems that I never would've thought to get at Ikea. These are just a few of the ones I made a mental note of for future shopping trips and a few that I just had to buy on the fly!
