On Saturday it was a rainy and cloudy day. Bored with nothing else to do Bryan and I headed off to IKEA. It was an such an enjoyable trip, Nikolas is totally manageable and not that little baby running away from you anymore. No meltdowns happen in the aisles or proclamations of starvation or worrying about diapers. I’m really loving this little bit older kid I’ve suddenly acquired. But back to the IKEA story
I went in specifically because I had seen these LAPPLJUNG RUTA black and white graphic pillow covers somewhere and had been obsessing about them for a few days.
They reminded me of the ottoman I’ve been obsessing over from One Kings lane it’s a very similar black and white pattern and at $10 a piece, how could you go wrong?
Of course once we were there that wasn’t the only thing we picked up. Bryan and I both really loved these Industrial BAROMETER Work Lamps. For us to agree on something is huge, most of the time he just doesn’t care so I do what I want. Other times the don’t ask don’t tell policy works really well too 🙂 The lamps are so heavy and I was really impressed by the quality and for $30 a piece they were a win win in our book.
We also picked up that cute little fern and the white pot sitting next to the lamp. I can never resist the plant section I kind of love him. He’s such a pretty spring green, sitting in the white pot it makes me feel like warmer days are ahead.
Finally we picked up six of the always awesome Ribba frames, we have an idea to hang them in a grid in the Living Room, which is easier said than done to get them level and straight, probably one of my least favorite things to do but they’re going to look awesome all hung.
So what have you all been up to? Any runs to IKEA? Buy anything good lately, spill in the comments.
