The Ikea catalog arrived yesterday. I don't usually look through catalogs, but this is one that travels around the house with me so that I can browse at different times. I love it.
When we were little, Charlotte and I used to play a catalog game. We still play sometimes, but not as often. When Delias or PacSun catalog arrived, we would sit next to each other and flip through each page.
-you had to pick one thing from each page that you liked the best
-price doesn't matter
-if there are a lot of products on the page, split it in half
Simple right? Yeah, that's how we liked it. The game was the most fun when everything on the page was ugly and you had to pick anyway.
On the right said, I chose the simple, straight coffee table. For Char, I chose the white round table on wheels. Char's living room rug has big circles on it and I think this table would look nice in her living room.
Ok, moving on the from the game to the good stuff - what I seriously want to buy.
his industrial kitchen cart. I would love to use this in a future craft room. It would be great for storing materials for a current project.
amazing headboard. $250 seems pretty steep for just a headboard considering that you can get a whole bed (headboard/frame) for under $200. But the color and texture of the fabric are really wonderful.
cabinet is very cool. The catalog said the design was inspired by a wall of different sized frames - and I can totally see that inspiration. I have two problems with this product: the price and the width. Why is it wider at the bottom than at the top? Hmm...not a fan. BUT - other than that, I really do like this piece.
This $179 bed is really tempting and very nice. I'm tempted to look for something with storage underneath, but that just gives me an excuse to collect more stuff.
Whenever I look at this stuff, I always wonder how I can make it my own. What can I do/add that would make it more me? Looks like I have a new Pinterest search to start!
Hmm..I might have to make a trip to Ikea this weekend.
