I wish I lived by an IKEA. The closest one is several hours away, and I've never been to it. Lucky for me my parents live about a half hour away from one, so when I visit them (sometimes) I
drag Mr. Skooks get to go shopping for home goodies.
With my sewing room makeover in progress, it was becoming more and more clear that a side trip to said Swedish mecca was in order. This time thankfully, my sis and brother-in-law were gracious enough to host my kiddos so I didn't have to drag them along. Not that they don't LOVE hours of oogling at home decor items and storage solutions, mind you.
Notable purchases necessary to make the sewing room more functional included:
- A new permanent home for my machines. YAY! No more taking it all down and packing it away to unpack it again!! I got the longest work top I could get to fit in my space and some shwanky little legs for her.
- Some boxes to corral projects in process.
- And a few more for smaller patterns and books.
- A couple rolls of paper for drawing and cutting larger pattern pieces. I may have been stealing from Little Miss' supply before. Possibly. Don't tell her.
- Icing. On the cake.
Yes, I know I know. But you agree with me, don't you . . . the chandelier was NECESSARY. ;)
Anyone else make a trip to the Yellow and Blue superstore lately? Do tell. :)
