So, my husband is super sweet and took me out on a “date” to IKEA this weekend!! So exciting!
When I’ve gone into IKEA before, I have felt really overwhelmed and ended up with just a few random things in my bag, and nothing that I really needed. So this time, I came prepared! I went on the IKEA website the day before we shopped, and found that they have a feature you can use where you can make your own “shopping list” to print out and bring to the store!
Here’s the only picture I took in the store…I looooved this lamp…someone can knock this off, right?!
And my husband and I made our first NEW furniture purchase! It only took 3 years of being married…haha! We’re so used to shopping at yard sales, thrift stores, or getting hand-me-downs from everyone…this was a big deal
Here’s our beautiful new chair:
Buckley approves as well:
AND it was only $59.99! Not bad for our first real furniture purchase
Want to see what else I got?! Of course you do
A new rug!! And…drum roll please…only $19.99!
Isn’t it SO cute?! I really love the print…and the price is just perfect!
Then I got some smaller fun things…like these cute storage boxes for $3.99 (for 2):
I also am in LOVE with this plant pot I got for $3.99!
Seriously, I love it
I also got an ironing board cover…ours is too embarrassing to take a picture…it’s old, almost threadbare, and has hearts all over it. Yuck. I can’t wait to put this one on our ironing board! For only $4.99, I don’t regret this purchase at all
I didn’t take a picture of my own, but this is the picture from the IKEA website of the sheers I got for our living room:
They are so light, exactly what I wanted! AND they were $4.99 for TWO PANELS! I think those might be the cheapest curtains in the world. Wow!
We had a great trip to IKEA, and we even got lunch there. For the two of us, it was about $12…and listen to this…if you spent over $100 in the store (we just made it!), you could get what money you spent on lunch taken off of your total purchases for the day! SO – we got a free lunch! Thanks, IKEA! We love you!!
