I shared my dream IKEA kitchen yesterday and the full dream house this morning, so now’s probably a good time to share what I’ve used and loved from IKEA in real life. Because, dudes, I love the big blue (and yellow). And all of these beautiful and talented ladies are sharing their favorite IKEA finds, too.
(P.S. We haven’t been compensated by IKEA in any way. Which makes me believe that we should be. But, really – we just love IKEA and thought this would be fun.)
It’s no secret I love our IKEA kitchen. We purchased the cabinetry, sink, plate rack, and countertops from IKEA and I’ve never regretted it for a second. And the Benjamins in my pocket agree. Whole-heartedly.
Hemnes shoe cabinet and Lack wall shelves
For an old house with little storage space, this shoe cabinet is a lifesaver in our entry space. It holds more than 20 pairs of shoes and flip flops, and looks great doing it. Seriously – I don’t know what we did before.
Oh, wait. I do. We stacked our shoes all over the floor.
The Lack shelves above were a happy accident. They lived in the office of our last house and I was inspired to use them to create a more custom-built look in the entry. They are nearly the exact width of the room and they look perfect. They also hold baskets for winter wear storage, which is a plus.
Pots, plants and frames
Those accessories get me every time. I’m a huge fan of the Ribba frames and I love the small white kardemumma pots. I also have a hard time sneaking out of the big blue without a few of their plants (or faux plants).
