On our way home from a family reunion from Florida last weekend we stopped in to see Andy's parents in Georgia. We had my parents with us and before long Andy's mom was showing my mom the IKEA kitchen in their mother-in-law suite.
My mom has been saving up to redo her kitchen for a long time now so she was very interested in the IKEA kitchens and their space-maximizing designs.
We decided that this was our time to visit IKEA! We were all so excited to tour this wonderful store that we'd heard so much about. In proper blogger fashion, my camera accompanied me so that I could preserve the memories as well as remember the things we saw that we really liked!
In no particular order, here are some of the items that caught my eye.
A cute teapot.
I loved the colors and patterns in this quilt.
Naturally, I was drawn to this red and white section of bedspreads.
Not crazy about the headboard, but I do like this bed.
Wouldn't this make an awesome sewing table? There are drawers on both sides and the leaf folds out to double the length of the table.
One of the dining room sets we admired.
Another set of table and chairs we liked. I like the charming curved detail on the chairs.
Cute little high chair.
One of the kitchens both Mom and I really liked.
Another kitchen we liked. Mom especially was fond of the farmhouse style of the cabinet doors here. We both love white kitchens!
Our Cherished Dog may have his own dining area but we all agreed he doesn't need this fancy dog couch!
We went mainly to look but I took a little cash along just in case. :-) We were impressed by the low prices on many of the items. I ended up purchasing some inexpensive cotton bedspreads to make into curtains for most of my house and some fabric to make things to sell.
Hope you enjoyed the highlights of our trip to IKEA!
