I know a lot of people love, love, love IKEA. But I thought it was OK. Just OK.
I will say that they have a heck of a marketing/staging department because their showroom displays were awesome. I'm just not attracted to build your own furniture anymore. They have some nice inexpensive home decor and organizing items though.
I did manage to find a couple things to buy. I couldn't make the 100 mile trip and not buy anything!
Two 79 cents dishtowels that I plan to make into pillows if I ever finish the other 100 projects ahead of them on my project list.
Some day when I'm brave I will show you his office space. See that unsightly jumble of cords to the left in the photo, that's just the tip of the iceberg of a mess.
It was only $5.99, but they were sold out of them. So when I came home I decided to make my own.
I dug out my wooden chemistry box.
I found this in an antique store a few years ago. When I took Chemistry classes in college they used to hand out your "ingredients" for your lab experiments in these boxes. And then you would trudge back to your lab desk and attempt not to create any explosions.
Then I took one of my enamelware bins (what the heck are these called - refrigerator dishes?),
Thanks for the idea IKEA, but I have it under control!
