So this is the time of year when I feel like
reorganizing, cleaning, tidying, tossing
you get the idea.
So my hubs figured we needed to hit Ikea.
I love you.
I hate you.
I really don't know how to feel about this store.
I love to walk through and look at everything.
They make everything look so nice.
I like buying little things from there.
We even bought plates there and use them for our day to day.
But I really don't enjoy buying furniture there.
I just don't like it.
And we have a tonne of it.
I get overwhelmed trying to narrow down what to buy.
It drives my hubby nuts.
So usually I just say 'ok'
and let him get what he thinks will work.
He has awesome taste.
But for some reason I just don't like the stuff!!
In other people's homes it looks great!
Maybe I just don't know how to put it all together.
Ok, really, I just stink at decorating.
Anyway, we bought a dresser and it's decent.
Not the love of my life but it'll do.
But I DID get this baby:
I am in desperate need of some storage for art supplies, scrapbooking
type stuff and little doo-dads.
The girls and I have been doing a tonne of crafts and artwork
lately and I keep accumulating supplies with no
where to put them.
So I am THRILLED to get this sucker put together.
*it's the little things*
Maybe someday I'll actually have a craft/art room like this one:
Or this one:
AAANNNNND my hubby bought me a tall jewelry chest for my birthday.
So today I transferred all of my jewelry from my little box, dresser, bathroom,
wherever I had jewelry laying around,
to my new beautiful jewelry tower.
I'm still organizing but I'll try and take a pic when it's all done.
It's in my closet.
LOVE LOVE it.
So bit by bit we are getting organized,
although my living room still looks as if Santa's workshop exploded.
Gotta get on that soon, it's driving me bonkers.
So now I have to go search online for a
wicked (yes I just aged myself there)
Maria says I need to have one.
