ikea

John took me to Ikea after work on Tuesday evening. We borrowed our friend's camper van and it took us 1.5 hours to get there....the shop was nice and quiet and I managed to find everything I went for...amazingly I didn't buy any fabric because there was too much to pick from and I was trying to be fast!! Even with the quick shopping we didn't get home until midnight!
Yesterday I took the small items to the workshop and John bought the big boxes later on....the plan is to have everything ready so I can move in on Sunday....I can't wait to get some felt on those shelves (the ones we haven't put up yet!)

(1 bosse MADE, 1 Bekvam MADE, 1 rug PRETTY, )
I also got a few small storage items which I forgot to photograph, I'll try to do that tonight :-)

I certainly don't envy you with all that flat pack furniture to put up!

I too have a Billy bookcase to store fabric, books etc. It is starting to get there. I like IKEA for lots of reasons and re-doing our office/sewing room ( have to share since my hubby now works from home as you can do it in one hit.

*sniff* For some reason, I can't see your pics. I can see the pics for your other posts though. I've even reloaded and tried looking at them directly.
