As I am sure everyone reading this knows Ikea is out of control! They literally have whole houses set up! You know how Joe and I live in a tiny space, well, Ikea has soooooo many ideas for such spaces. I think I was told this long ago, but not being a home owner, and being a little snobbish about conforming, I didn't pay attention. I get it now, everyone! Ikea kinda rocks my socks :)
I rounded up my favorite shopping buddy, mom, and away we went :). Mom was an Ikea virgin as well so I am sure we both looked like fools ogling all the set ups and stopping in the middle of the isle to chat about this or that. Every time I thought we were coming the end of the road we'd be in a whole other section. It was by far the coolest place I have ever been. And we finally made it to the bedroom section. I had originally wanted to go there looking for something to complete the living room, but I ended up with a bed. Isn't that how it usually works? You are looking for something and then out of the blue you find an amazing piece you never knew you wanted.
As most of you who actually read this know, I have a fancy for antiques or look a likes. There is almost nothing in Ikea that follows that design, except the lovely wrought iron bed I picked up. The scroll details and wrought iron give it a '30s feel and the cream color keeps it neutral and airy. I love the new bed. In fact, I am thinking of calling it an early night just so I can spend some extra time in it :).
