Ikea Haul

March 7, 2013

I have been living in this city for a only a couple of months now and one of the perks is that I only live 10 min away from an Ikea. In the past I have only been able to window shop at Ikea because well, you can't really take furniture with you on an airplane and shipping costs can get really pricey. The hubby and I took a trip to Ikea this weekend without the intention of buying anything but it's hard not to leave that store without at least one thing. Our place still needs a lot of decorating but we pick up small pieces every now and then.

I finally got the hubby to hang up one of my paintings above my desk.
I had it just perched up on a bookshelf for the longest time.

I've been meaning to get some containers for coffee, tea & sugar and these tin containers fit them all perfectly! I love how they are rectangle instead of round because I don't have a lot of counter space at all.
I have an obsession with black & white because you can always add and change accent colors.

I only bought the white 18 piece set but I plan on going back and getting the black set as well because I really want black & white plates and it is way cheaper buying the set instead of buying them individually. So I will have a bunch of extra plates/bowls! I got the 2 black bowls in the picture from Target a long time ago in the clearance section for dirt cheap (about $1 each bowl) and they have a gorgeous floral pattern on the inside. I also got this glassware set that I didn't take a picture of.

I had to take a picture of my dream closet!

I really really really wanted this Limited Edition Billy Bookcase but I already have 2 bookcases in my office and would need to find some room for it.

  1. Great finds! Loving those containers and that bookshelf!

    1. Thanks Mellissa! :) I love that bookshelf but have no room for it at the moment!

    2. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Where in Florida did you live? I currently live near Jacksonville.

      That bookshelf could be a DIY ... transform one you already have by painting a cute design?


    3. Hey Mellissa :) I lived in Pensacola. I actually have thought about doing that since I have 2 plain black bookshelves and I haven't attached the backs to them yet (they have the flimsy cardboard backing) so I was thinking of covering them with a bunch of scrap paper. I just haven't had the time to work on it yet but it seems like it wouldn't take me too long. Thanks for stopping by again :) And have a wonderful time at Disney!!
