I collected fabric pre-cuts, which I will list in my store today (I ran out of time yesterday).
I was lucky to get some early release packs of Honey Honey by Kate Spain, Noteworthy by Sweetwater and Ticklish which us super cute!
We then headed to Ikea. Yaaaaay!! My kids absolutely love that store. Yes, it sounds strange to see that in writing, but its so true.
Perhaps it is only the $1 hotdogs which they're attracted to, but really, I think they love looking at all of the staged rooms and letting me know what their favourite parts are.
Or maybe they're just like me and just happy to wander around and dream of the possibilities for a few hours.
We spent a lot if time looking at the staged kitchens. We're not getting an Ikea kitchen in our new house, it will be custom built by our building company, but getting ideas is fun.
We will be going with the off-white cabinets and dark (black) work tops, in stone. Similar to this picture below.
I love the high cupboards with glass doors, but don't have any high cupboards on our current kitchen plans.
Perhaps I need to do something about that. I mean seriously, where else would I be able to display my cute Ikea glasses (replacements for the elephant/penguin glasses).
Amelia thinks this day-bed will be a good addition to the new house (including all of the cushions, ofcourse).
And Sammy wants this clock for his new room.
Here he is, having a little rest before continuing on our adventure. He said he was testing the couch to see if it was comfy... I know otherwise :)
My husband doesn't see the appeal of Ikea. He'll tag along and happily take down numbers to locate items in the warehouse at the end, but he doesn't understand our adoration.
Have you been to Ikea? Love it or are you indifferent?
Oh, and keep an eye out for a fun Ikea Textiles project coming up on the blog next week :-)
