Ode to IKEA

Okay...I have to say it...I heart IKEA!!!! It is quite possibly my favorite place in the whole world. You can go spend an entire day at the store (it should be called a city because it is so huge), and never see the same thing twice! It is a decorators dream come true. Not only are the items beautiful, but they also are amazingly inexpensive! So....I have decided to do some browsing, and show you some of my favorite things from this shopping mecca. (By the way-we furnished almost our entire home with IKEA products, and we spent right around $1000.00! This would have cost tens of thousands of dollars at other high-end retailers.)

Beautiful "Beata" Decorative Pillow-$14.99-At least half the price that you would pay at most stores!

"Hemnes" Queen size Bed-Also comes in white-$299.00-Whatmore can I say? The price is amazing!

"Solig" Beach Bag-$1.49 -I could carry a bunch of stuff in these!

"Luns" Writing/Magnetic Board-$14.99-Okay people...this is a seriously good deal. You would pay about $60.00 for this at Pottery Barn!

For those of you who love "shabby chic"-"Ektorp" chair-$349.00-also available in other fabrics

"Lack" Coffee Table-$49.99-Seriously...a great item for the price! I own this and love it. And, it is so inexpensive, that if it gets messed up, we can afford to buy a new one!
Isn't this beautiful? It is "Mixtur" priced at $8.99 or all four pieces! It is actually for food and can be used in the oven, but I can think of a ton of other things that i could use this for!

I love this "Borrby" Lantern priced at $6.99. It would be beautiful to use inside or out! Put a candle inside of it, or fill it up with some pretty greenery.

This pretty "Hasthov" blanket will be a nice accent in any room. $12.99

I think that this "Granas" table and chairs would be the perfect touch in a dining area. You can't beat the price-$249.99 for the table and four chairs!

I think that this "Barnslig Rund" rug is just adorable for a child's room or playroom. And, the price is adorable too at $12.99!

Well, I hope that you have enjoyed looking at some of my favorite IKEA finds! Leave me a comment, and let me know what your favorite item at IKEA is! I would love to hear from you!

IKEA-holic here. I absolutely LOVE IKEA. We live 2 hours from the nearest IKEA, so it's ALWAYS a big deal when we make a day trip to the Atlanta IKEA. IKEA to me is like DisneyWorld to kids!
Great post! Thanks for sharing and spreading the IKEA LOVE!

I also see we have a bit in common. In addition to my IKEA addiction, I am also a thrift-aholic. Just got back from my local thrift store with LOTS and LOTS of goodies! Isn't it rewarding to find something for nothing? LOVE IT!

Welcome to SITS too!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great Ikea finds. I LOVE that whole Hemnes line. I think I want everything in it...although, that could be overkill...but I do love it.

You're in Norman huh? I was curious when you said you're 4 hours from Dallas. I'm in Tulsa so I have the same drive. High five for being Okie gals!

Love your blog by the way.

Mmmmm...IKEA goodness! I have the Hemnes bed (in white-king size) and am about to get the dresser and chest. I love me some IKEA. Love it with big puffy rainbow hearts and sparklers.
Super cute blog.
