My Trip to IKEA #DIY

by - 8/15/2014 07:30:00 AM

I’m not sure if I mentioned this. However, the closest Ikea is close to an hour away from me (with no traffic).Usually when I pass by to go to NY or surrounding towns. It’s usually during the time I’m not driving the van or I’m unable to stop. Well, yesterday I was determined to stop, and I told the Mr. that I would be stopping, LOL (I wanted to warn him) I had my catalog circled with the items I had interest in. My walking shoes, comfortable clothing (hey the store is HUGE, you have to prepare)

By the time I went through the first floor. I was ready to remodel my entire house. I tried my best to snap a couple of pictures of displays that caught my eye.

It’s amazing how a couple of details can turn your drab living space into a fab living space.
So of course as soon as I came home I was in design mode. I purchased two rugs, in hopes to redecorate our front porch. I actually front runner mates that I tuned into rugs buy connecting them. I will try to show pictures.  I also found these super cute white lanterns to brighten up the space as well.
PS: I love multi-functional pieces. The picture above is a daybed that can be used as a sofa, bed or two twin size beds.

Anywho, any new DIY projects going on? Is Ikea close to your home?

Thanks For Stopping By!

  1. Ikea is my first stop for any of my decor and furniture needs! They have super cute stuff and I get tons of ideas.

  2. We are in the process of buying a home and I so want to visit this store. I've been hearing so many good things. I'm sure the closet to me will be over an hour away.

  3. I just came from Ikea earlier this week. They have so many great things and I just love how they style each room. Ikea is pretty close to me in Atlanta. Just about a 20 minute trip or 5 minutes when I am at work!

  4. I live pretty close to Ikea its about 20mins or so away, its always fun walking though and getting small space ideas

  5. I love a good Ikea outing! :) Our closet Ikea is about and hour away as well, and we always make it a family trip. The kids love looking through the showrooms and a stop in at the cafe, I love adding new things to the home from Ikea, I've been planning out my next trip with the new catalog. :) Fun post!

  6. I live in Ikea. Was there a few weeks ago. Purchased my daughter a bed frame and dresser. I love it for all of the little accessories especially for children's spaces. Looking forward to see what you do with your new purchases!

  7. I've never been to an Ikea (I know). We don't have a car and with the children always with me, there's never been a real opportunity to go. I would love to do some sort of diy/interior decorating in our flat. Hopefully when the tripolatas start school full time I'll find the time to visit.

  8. Big IKEA fan here too. Love their prices and huge selection. Glad you enjoyed your shopping trip.
