IKEA lost and found
So we went to IKEA yesterday. I have to say that the layout of the Schaumburg, Illinois IKEA store makes me never want to return. Ever.
It’s like a maze. For drunk mice. And there is no cheese. Well, I guess the parking lot would be the cheese since finding your way out of that place is the ultimate reward!
The layout makes no sense whatSOever. Next time I’m taking some hunting dogs and a compass to help me navigate.
Or maybe I’ll just take my daughter. She’s like the Rand McNally of confusing shopping layouts. I can remember when she was four, we’d be at a new mall (we moved a LOT) and I wouldn’t remember how to get back to whichever entrance we came in. Hannah would say, “follow me mommy.” And she was always right.
Come to think of it, maybe the fact that I’m seriously directionally challenged may have played a teensy part of my IKEA frustration. hmmmmm.
Anyway, I did manage to find a couple of goodies while I was there.
Like this rug for my studio. You can always count on IKEA for inexpensive rugs. Not bad for $79 bucks, eh? This one is beige, but it’s also available in black/white and pink/white. The pink and white one would be so sweet in a nursery. And I can totally envision the black and white one in a kitchen. They also have runners for 29.99 (available in grey/white and red/white) and door mats for 9.99 (grey/white, red/white).
I also bought some Lenda curtains which I plan to hang in my studio, but trick them out a bit first. Stay tuned for that.
I bought some new brackets for the open shelving in the studio kitchen. My handyman told me the ones I chose weren’t really heavy duty enough. But I liked them cause they were galvanized and looked good.
Have I mentioned that in addition to being directionally challenged, I’m just a wee-bit stubborn and hard headed? Shocker, I know.
I’ve got more issues than National Geographic! 😉
Have a wonderful day, peeps. I’m off to antique with the parents!
