IKEA x 3

>> 1.05.2011

I'm feeling like a lazy blogger today, so I'll just share my IKEA stories in list form:

1. Santa must have been listening this year when I went through not one, but two sets of Euro shams. He just knew the grey velvety SANELA IKEA shams would be the perfect solution:

 Shame on me for not paying the $30 in the first place!

2. I had another crazy Craigslist moment when I stalked out this HOVET mirror for over two weeks just to save $80 off of the already low price. Hey, $80 is $80... I'm pretty sure it was worth driving through over an hour of rush hour traffic and suspending the mirror in the air with my arm on the way home so that it wouldn't break. 

Remember that resolution I was talking about? Well, over a year later and this sucker still needs some sort of trim:
I probably also need to add a couple of pictures to those frames...

3. and my IKEA closet that IKEA Hacker featured (!) a couple of weeks ago also needs a bit of a trim job as well. These things do take time, but waiting over a year to finish a project is a little over the top, no?

I've been in love with that mirror, too! But I'm especially envious of your x-bench - I want one! :)

Those Euro shams are great.

Does it drive you nuts to turn to watch the tv?

I moved my bedroom furniture around and HAD to mount my tv on the wall at the foot of the bed b/c it was driving me nutty to turn toward the tv.....
