Every time I visit my family in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area of Minnesota, I get a much-needed IKEA trip! Unfortunately, my camera battery died, so I couldn’t take any photos in the store. Instead, here is what I went home with.
I bought two Lack Side Tables with hopes I can make minor adjustments to the tables to make something perfect for the boys’ room.
We need to join the two tables together from the under side, but they are a great place for V to sit to look out the window.
IKEA definitely has a great selection of picture frames and even better prices, so I picked up two 20 inch square Ribba frames (with mats!) for our hallway. I need to update the family trees (the brown canvases in the hall) I made a few years ago, but I want to recreate it in Photoshop, to make the text neat and clean.
I opted to buy the silver frames for $10.99 and add a few coats of spray paint, and not buy the white frames for $19.99 each. In fact, all the silver Ribba frames were on sale, so I picked up a few other sizes, just to have some extra cheap frames on hand.
I’ll post pictures of the redesigned family trees once they’re framed and ready.
I don’t need more vases, but I couldn’t resist the clean lines of the Persika vase.
The $3.99 price tag wasn’t too bad, either. The Farm vase is cute too, so I got one of those.
The smaller vase was actually a reed diffuser from Target I picked up around the holidays. And, because everything looks better in an odd grouping, I placed a small ceramic bird to keep the vases company.
I really like IKEA’s selection of rugs. So much in fact, that I bought a new rug for our front door.
The natural fibers seem durable, but if it’s not, I only lost $10.00. I do love the neutral colors and the herringbone pattern.
Throw a few white cloth napkins, plastic cutting boards, hanging shoe organizers, mousepads and Kassett storage boxes in my big blue tarp bag and that’s what I picked up on my latest IKEA trip.
