Stuff I Love: Our IKEA Loot!

I wrote earlier this week about losing our IKEA virginity and the haul we brought home when we got back to Nashville. So here's what we got! 

I had been pinning bed canopies for little girls' rooms on Pinterest and was so excited to find the Himmel Bed Canopy. Fluffy clouds! And I like that Tessa can see her glow-in-the-dark stars through the netting at night. :)


We also got both of Tessa's birthday presents there. (She hasn't seen any of this yet.) Here is her pop-up circus tent, called the Cirkustalt Children's Tent. Adorbs, right?


And, then there's this easel. I had been holding out for a vintage easel but I loved this one too much to pass it up. It's dry erase on one side and chalkboard on the other and has that shelf for her crayons, which I hope can stay there instead of underfoot all the time. 


 Aaaand this rug for our living room.


And our most favorite thing of all: a kitchen island! We haven't eaten a meal anywhere else since we got it. The dining room table is so 2011.


Now we just need to throw another party!

  5. I've only been to Idea once...in Hungary. It was probably a blessing that I could only buy what I could fit in my bag since I had to fly it all home! I came home with a set of placemats and a wall hanger that looks like a dog's butt :) We've been planning a trip down to Dallas soon just to hit one up though...

    And thank you for your kind words :) Soon I'll be 'out' with it ;)
