IKEA Favorites

IKEA is one of my favorite places for shopping or just visiting for the day. Even my kids love to go with me. We also enjoy getting lunch at the restaurant.

I am sharing some of my favorites that I have bought form IKEA or similar items because some items I have are no longer available.

Rugs, are possibly my favorite finds from IKEA. They are good quality and they have many affordable options. Rugs can be so expensive especially if you need a large one. we have a similar black and white one in our living room and it cleans easily with my bissell rug cleaner. The other two are on my want list.

We have had two of these AGEN Armchairs for a few years now and I love the way they look. I use cushions and pillows to make them comfy.

A few years ago we bought a new king mattress and this is the bed KOPARDAL we went with for it. I liked the modern metal look. Its a dark gray but could easy be spray painted. They no longer sell it in king unfortunately.

We have this KRISTALLER chandelier in out laundry room. I found it for a very low price in the as is section. Its small but very pretty.

We don’t own this BRUNSTA / HEMMA light yet but I have them on my want list for the hall way in our living room area.

We own the STOCKSUND sofa and you can read a review on that HERE. This sofa is the LANDSKRONA and I like this style and the legs. I want to eventually get new sofas for the living room and these are on my maybe list.

and last…this SUNDVIK crib we got for a gift when I was pregnant with Harper. Now Weston is using it and it has been a great crib. They do have more affordable options as well.

IKEA is also great for storage items, kitchen and dining items and curtains. I love how they sell curtains in a two pack.

What are your favorite items from IKEA?

Thank you for reading!

April Finds

I recently went to my sister’s open studio in Elliot, Maine and along with her beautiful handmade ceramics she had other vendors selling goods like this watercolor print.

I fell in love with this print when I saw it on her instagram post about the event. So I had to get one. I still need to find the right frame for it. I was thinking a thin wood frame.

This print is by the artist Leah Bares from Violette Tide Studios

I also recently found this cute coolor tote at Target on clearance for $2.98. I love having these for baseball games, trips to the park or when I take the kids on a long drive.

I also picked up these mini pictures for my gallery wall in the kitchen/sitting area. I have been collecting small art to cover the wall around the tv.

These cute mini wall hangings were only a $1.80 at Target. They are magnetic and also can hold some faux flowers or maybe pencils.

My sister gifted this hanging planter to me. You can visit Elizabeth Benotti Ceramics to see all her handmade ceramics.

She gifted this to Weston for his first birthday and its so soft and she knows how much we love camping. This is by The Bee & The Fox.

and this super cute and large tea towel was also a gift. It would make a great wall hanging also! you can find these here at Hearth and Harrow

I am working on finishing my craft/workspace to share soon. I have more home projects in the works.

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. You can find me on bloglovin but my blog does not appear on it for some reason I am still working on that.

 

Harper & Weston's Room Updates

Over the past year I have changed Harper’s room and decor around because Weston is now her roommate! For a little while anyway.

Please excuse the Christmas decor, some of these were taken a while back.

The biggest change was replacing the rug.

I have wanted to do this for a while. I happen to come across this opalhouse rug on clearance for $89 at Target one day. I did not buy it when I first saw it. I went home and thought about it and went back to get it later that day. It was $189.

They do not carry this rug anymore but they do have a huge collection of the pretty rugs here.

I changed out the butterfly curtains for light neutral ones. It has made a huge difference in the room. I also picked these up from Target, I really like the material. These are the line of curtains here.

The only thing is in store they were called white something, I’m not sure if they are the same as sour cream online.

Here is Weston before he could walk. Harper and Weston love playing in their room. I only keep a few toys in here and lots of books.

We found this adorable lamp at..you guessed it Target on clearance for under $9. It still sells for $30 online. Target is truly my favorite place for decor. Especially when it’s on clearance.

This nightstand is also new to the space. It use to belong to me when I was a teen. It needs a fresh coat of paint and I’ve been waiting on nice weather to do that and change the hardware.

This cute wolf wall decor ( that Weston loves ) was also a Target find and only under $6. Its no longer available but they have a few adorable ones available. I had to take the print off the wall, Weston was able to reach it.

Also Harpers bedding is new. She had a black and white cat print and I found this blush pink opal house set on clearance.

You can see the post I did few years back on the wall art by Pixers Here.

In February of 2016 I shared this room after we completed it for Harper, you can read that here.
