If you were on Instagram on Friday night, you may have noticed I went on a little shopping trip at Ikea! It’s been a good 4 years since my last trip to Ikea, so I was pumped! What made it even better, was that this was a solo trip! No husband, no kids! Heaven, I tell you!
Of course, my trip started with a trip to the cafe for some meatballs! Once I was done eating, I went straight to get my shop on. I only had about an hour and a half, due to the store closing, so I hustled a bit.
I didn’t really waste too much time looking at furniture, as I really don’t need any. Plus, I had no space in the car for it anyway, as we had driven up to Cincinnati in John’s smaller car.
So here we go.. Take a look at what I was able to pick up!
BORRBY lantern: 1 at $7.99 – I LOVE these lanterns for decor! They’re just so expensive anywhere else!
FEJKA artificial plants: 1 at $4.99 and 1 at $5.99 – I’ve been working on fancifying my mantle and downstairs bathroom. These pops of green are perfect for that!
SOCKER plant pot: 2 at $0.99 each – Got these to spruce up the FEJKA plants. At less than a dollar each, I couldn’t resist!
FENOMEN unscented block candle: 1 at $1.99 – It’s crazy how expensive candles can be! I just wanted something simple to place inside of the BORRBY lantern that wouldn’t break the bank!
MOSSLANDA picture ledges: 2 at $9.99 each – I’ve been DYING for these picture ledges for a while. Originally, I wanted to use them to store books for the girls, but I’m pretty sure I’m just going to keep these for above my desk!
FISKBO picture frames: 1 4×6″ at $0.99, 1 5×7″ at $1.49, 2 8×11″ at 2.49 each – I grabbed these to frame some art or printables or something on the MOSSLANDA picture ledges. Had I had more time, I would have searched for some that would work in my gallery wall.
GURLI cushion cover: 4 at $4.00 each – It took some searching to find these plain white cushion covers, but my plan to experiment a little with crafting them up. I have a few ideas in mind, which is why I picked up 4 of these!
FJADRAR cushion: 1 at $5.99 – The cushion to go inside of my future creations. Sorta wish I had grabbed two, but I think I can always order more if my crafts work out.
TOLSBY picture frame: 1 at $0.99 – Two picture frames for the price of one! I because obsessed with these after seeing them on Instagram/Pinterest/Facebook ALL the time a while back! I have NO clue what to do with it, but I couldn’t skip tossing it into my shopping bag!
LUGGA candle: 1 at $2.99 – I can’t say no to cheap candles! This one is a nice powdery scent that is going to hang out in the downstairs bathroom with a FEJKA plant.
SINNLIG candle: 1 at 3.99 – This candle is supposed to burn for 55 HOURS! It’s going upstairs next to my bathtub for those nights where I’m lounging around with a glass of wine. I imagine this thing will probably last for the rest of my life, since those nights are so rare!
DINERA dinnerware: 6″ bowl at $2.49 and mug at $1.99 – Nothing cheers me up like a little bit of pink! I plan to mostly use these items at photo props, but I’m sure that I’ll reach for them for actual meals too!
FORSIKTIG stool: 1 at $4.99 – I have this same exact stool upstairs in the girls’ bathroom. Only, I got it at Target for somewhere around $15! I’ve been meaning to get one for downstairs, since Juli is potty training and this makes life easier. Can’t beat $5!!
I also needed a bag to haul all this crap to the car, which was $0.99, for a total of $90.80! With tax, it all came out to $96.70! I was honestly surprised that I managed to stay under $100!
