so then of course, as soon as we got home everything got put in its "place". i'm talking, we walked in, set our stuff down, pat the head of a cat or two and i ripped into my stuff. about 30 minutes later everything was as it should be : ) here's what i got!!!
this is what my living room looked like before IKEA
i apologize for the picture quality in these photos.. it's difficult to take a picture of a room with little light facing a big window. trust me.
2 pillow covers
1 feather cushion
2 plant pots
1 set of 17 pieces of storage containers
all for the low price of $125. i know, IKEA is amazing. for real. and they aren't even paying me to say this. that is a whooole lotta stuff for that price. it was awesome. i felt like just adding the lack coffee table (for $20!!!) changed my apartment completely. and now i have somewhere for my feet to sit when i type up my blog while sitting on my sofa : ) you know what else i love about IKEA? their stuff is good quality. look at this stuff
adorable good quality stuff, right? i know!! i don't think i've ever made that amount of money stretch so far. geesh i love that place. i need to go back. like, 7 more times. there is still so much stuff i want there! i know what you're thinking, how could there be anything else left? but that's the beauty of it. it's so huge and there is so much stuff, there is always something more to want to bring home. best. place. ever.
seriously, if you have one nearby, go. that's all i have to say on the matter : )
