I made it out alive
I love Ikea, but that place can really do some damage on your wallet and nerves if you let it. There are just soo many people and none of them seem to be watching where they are going. Although I understand... they are preoccupied by all of the wonderfulness to gawk at. I made the 1 1/2 hour trip to ikea a couple weeks ago to pick up a piece of butcher block for my kitchen counters. Remember when I was wanting to do butcher block in this post? I decided to get going on it. I will start with just one side of the kitchen, the side that only has a small 43" section of counter top. After we get our tax money manybe I will finish the main side, and get a new sink. (Keeping my fingers crossed). I will show you more of the project later on. I just wanted to show you my ikea score. I was amazed to find that they have a fabric section! Who knew? Not me. They had a section that was 75% off! I purchased some panels that were already hemmed on each side. I turned it into two table runners. I also got some white organizing boxes for our office room and a few plants. Whew. I think I did good. I was so tempted to keep on shopping, but I held back. Kudos for me. That is a toughy at Ikea.
