Loving and Hating IKEA

April 2, 2007 at 7:52 am 1 comment

I spent the bulk of the weekend in some kind of IKEA related activity. Saturday we got lost in the maze trying to find desks and bookshelves for the craft room. I get the whole you-must-see-everything-to-test-your-impulse-control thing. But dang. Make sure you go to the bathroom at the beginning ’cause halfway through the store – you’re basically hosed.

Sunday we spent assembling the three new bookcases and three new desks. The results is a finished (FINISHED) craft room:

In the closet…plenty of storage! Thank goodness!

And three (THREE) work spaces: sewing, cutting/standing space, paper crafting.

I still have 8 tons of craft supplies that need to travel from the 1st floor to the 3rd floor. And now I have no excuses for giving store-bought cards instead of handmade cards. D’oh! Plus, since Mike has pretty much been an angel through this whole thing (“So what if it’s more expensive? You have to have the RIGHT work surface, right?”) I think I owe him his favorite lasagna and pot pie for dinners soon.

    Your craft room is looking pretty good. I’m so jealous about your standing work area. Your husband sounds just like my husband. Peaches both.
