Sunday Funday at IKEA


My full cart.

It’s Monday again folks, time for a new week, so lets start it with some great finds from IKEA. It was definitely Sunday Funday for me yesterday. The nearest IKEA to me is about 40 minutes away, so unfortunately I don’t go there as much as I would like. My oldest daughter Sage was working behind the scenes at a fashion show that was only 10 minutes away from IKEA so I offered to drive her and then killed some time at IKEA until she was done. What a sacrifice on my part, right?! To be honest IKEA can be a bit overwhelming to me but lately I’ve noticed all the goodies and IKEA hacks on Instagram and many of the Interior Design blogs I follow. So I made a of list of things I wanted to check out and that helped me navigate my way around and really get to see exactly what I wanted to. I wasn’t planning on buying any big furniture items but I thought a few little things would be fun. Before I knew it the cart was full and there were many more things I didn’t even get this time around, maybe next time.

 Here’s what I got…
