I've had plenty of people make fun of us for our love of IKEA.

Which kinda makes me laugh...
 Why would we want to spend thousands on furniture when we move a lot? (Thank you, Army) 
Why would we do that when we know that we want to have kiddos who will more than 
likely bang up our furniture? (& lets be honest, we bang up our furniture a lot too!)
So people can laugh all they want but I think we are smart.

 The fact of the matter is IKEA offers super functional pieces at super affordable prices.
Plus in my opinion, the majority of their pieces offer up a really great, modern contemporary base 
for the rest of our vintage, handmade & non-IKEA decor to really stand out.
When you combine what we had before we moved & what we've purchased since, 
I think it is pretty safe to say that there is at least one thing from IKEA in every room of our house.
(& we are very, very happy about that... we love our IKEA furniture & such!)
 Want to see what we've been putting together lately? Take a look...
The 3-Door Aspelund Wardrobe now has a home in our master bedroom.
(In fact we put it together last night!)

The  Leksvik Bar Table & Ingolf Barstools are in our kitchen.
(Along with some Ekby Jarpen Shelves too!)

Last but not least the Klingsbo Side Table
 & the Lack Coffee Table reside in our living room.

Oh & please don't ask me how to really say any of the names of our pieces by the way... 
I pretty much butcher them every time I even try to say them. Tee hee hee.

I've decided the funnest part of going to Ikea is trying to pronounce all the silly names. I'm sure I annoy the helpless shopping helper/victim that comes along with me, but it's so fun!

It appears I'm a master at self entertainment. Ha!

IKEA is great! I'm so glad they made one in Tampa. I love their frames and lighting the most. They have fun designs and it costs a lot less than other places!

I miss IKEA! Hubby and I loved it there. We'll be near one soon in a couple of years!

I agree! Our Ikea's right down the road + we go often. I love mixing Ikea pieces with other finds, and I get SO much inspiration from the store + catalog.
