My First Trip to Ikea


Yesterday I made my very first trip to Ikea. Somehow I have made it through college and my first post college apartments without having any furniture from Ikea. I am kind of glad I waited so long or else I think I would be an addict. I had the full experience of eating at the café, pushing my way through the hoards of Saturday shoppers and a few scares of being parted from my mom never to find her again. I was able to leave with the $2.99 five pack of cardboard magazine file boxes I have been coveting for years but too cheap to pay shipping and great fabric to make curtains (more on that later). Not sure when I will go back, but I am glad that Ikea has finally made it to our area.

Ikea is such fun! And the best thing to do with the magazine holders? Cover them with paper or fabric for a tailored look.

Love those magazine files - I buy tons of them whenever we are at an IKEA. They are so great.
