IKEA Haul IKEA Haul IKEA HaulIncase you don’t know, IKEA is one of my favourite shops to buy stuff for our home. If we need something, it’s our first call. Shane and I took a trip to our local IKEA this past Saturday while the weather was a little crappy and ended up going completely overboard with stuff as usual!

I’ve been wanting to turn a corner of our hallway into a little nook to sit in the evenings as our living room only gets the sun in the morning and it’s super dark in there in the evenings, but the sunshine pours into our hallway in the evening. I ended up buying a little armchair (which I plan on ‘hacking’ into a more mid-century style hopefully) to go in there and then decided to just build it into a little nook, so I bought some pretty flowers and an artificial plant, a cushion and the Bråkig laptop stand. I also bought the PS 2014 collection jars that I was lusting over for our bathroom and the PS collection duvet set too! I just couldn’t help myself haha! There’s still a couple other things that I want to get, like some little shelves and a floor lamp and a mini side table, but I can’t wait to build it up into a cute little reading nook where I can sit and enjoy the sunshine 🙂 I’ll be sure to do a blog post when it’s all complete!

    Ikea is something my family does as a day trip, haha! Ours has a huge restaurant and it easily takes you an hour just to walk through the store. We might be going tomorrow and I hope I can still find a few things from the PS collection. I love the duvet covers and they also had super cute other things that I fell in love with. Keeping my fingers crossed, and looking forward to see your finish reading nook! 🙂 xo

      haha shane hates it when we go, because I literally walk around every room admiring it all even though it hasn’t changed the past 500 times we’ve been haha! I love the ikea meatballs and chips!
      There were a couple other things that I wanted from the PS collection too – they had a couple plant stands/greenhouses and a shelving unit but we don’t have enough room for those so unfortunately we couldn’t get them haha!
      Enjoy your trip! 🙂
