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! 


  1. that circus tent is so awesome! and i love that run. i need one for my living room, maybe we need to take a road trip down there.

  2. oh my gosh ALL of your finds are so awesome!! seriously, love all of them, can't pick a favorite!

  3. Build it, and we will come. Stop holding out, IKEA. Nashville needs you.

    My yard urchins use their IKEA easel every day. a robust piece, for shizzle

  4. Killer loot you guys scored!! Love it all! That kitchen island is the bees knees!

  5. I've only been to Idea 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 ;)

  6. you did well mama. Love Tessa's room and she will for sure love her presents! and you did it all without an ikea fight. impressed!
