Crazy for Ikea

I have a thing for Ikea, who doesn't? So I wanted to share with you some of my finds on my last trip there.

***The day I was there I was in a hurry and was not thinking about taking pictures that were any good-or for that matter completely in focus or even centered*****
I love all their industrial lighting looks...
I have eyed these runners several times for our kitchen but I think we get too much traffic from the back door for these to even stay remotely clean...
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this chair-Don't know what it is about it but I really want it (or 2 or 6)
Great for a small kitchen, the stainless gives the bar an idea while still being relatively simple.
I know this piece may be boring now, but I see it painted with wine bottles lined up along the bottom shelves.
Yep, I know you have seen this in some magazines of late, it really allows you to go many directions with everything else around it.
I may have to use this is in a child's room somewhere....

I want to make an Ikea run soon! I am sure MEMS might want to go (and a run to Scott's too)!

I love Ikea, they always have something I need :) The BF hates it there, he says its a boyfriends torture palace because there is only one entry and one exit....all the way at the end of the rat maze, and in between lots of oohhh, and ahhhs and I have to get this blah blah blah :) So, needless to say I only get to go once in a while

Great finds!!! I haven't been there in so long because I'm not that close to one (and like Lindsay's boyfriend my husband complains), but you're making me need to see everything!! :) Love your idea of the painted piece with wine bottles!!

I too so love IKEA, and cannot wait for our Colorado store to open. LindsB made me laugh about the one entry/one exit and a rat maze. How true! But that's the beauty of the store as well. You can bring a list with you, but since you'll be going though all depts. anyway, you'll remember something you need that you didn't write down.

I almost wrote in this post about the first time I ever went to Ikea and I was with my husband and it was the first time I ever thought he was going to leave me! HAHA He was MISERABLE. Why does Ikea make guys so cranky?

No kidding. I have an IKEA about 45 mins away and still have not been. You have inspired me!
