I bought a chair on Craigslist, and the seller suggested we meet at Ikea Saturday afternoon.
"Sounds great to me", I said.
My husband said he would go with me.
"Yipee", I thought.
We had fun, and I found a couple'a neat items that I thought I would share!
First is this great looking pillow cover. The fabric content is 100% ramie, which has a wonderful rustic appeal...very similar to an old grain sack. It's a nice, generous size...36", and the insert stripe fabric is sewn in. Best thing......$13!
Here's the link although it's not available online:
The next 'find' is a pendant light. I've been looking for lighting for my guest room which I am working on...not sure what I really wanted. We found this pendant light with a metal drum shade on sale from $69 to $19. I think I will cover the shade with burlap or a slubby linen. It's a nice large size, and I'm sure it will look perfect! It's only available at stores as well.
I also found some great looking glasses. I like all my glassware to match, and somehow my last set has all but disappeared, leaving mismatched assorted ones (where do these odd glasses come from anyway?)
They are a nice thicker glass which I've learned works best in our household. I love the shape and style. There are 'rings' around the bottom...kinda hard to see in the pics.
Set of 6 - 16 oz. $4.99
Set of 6 - 11 oz. $3.99
Better than the Dollar Store!
I found a few other little 'odds and ends' also.
No matter what your taste or style is, there's always a treasure at Ikea to be found!
Have a safe and happy Labor Day!
