my medal please

14 Jan

i really, really dislike ikea. yep. there. i said it.

it’s crowded, confusing, and disorganized. i hate being herded through a pathway cluttered aisle with too big buggies that are too heavy for me to push.

but it was inevitable. we needed a very shelving. and ikea had them on the cheap in a design i liked. so we agreed to go on a weeknight. a tuesday to be exact and as close to closing time as possible. this is key. NEVER go to ikea on a weekend. really, really bad idea.

another tip: skip the showroom and go directly to the marketplace. we were able to bypass the all the setups and motor straight to shelving and scored this guy:

and a few of these for good measure

and even better, when i came home from charleston alex had it all together. he’s super handy with an allen wrench. 🙂

    YAY for Alex. I just want to let you know that I’m your #1 blog fan. It helps pass the time before lunch or at the end of the work day.

    Every thing looked great! Alex is such a handyman…hooray! I am envious of your pantry, too…and your closets…they are super organized and classy.
