Like many in metro areas across the world, I too succumbed to the greatness that is Ikea when it finally made it’s way to the South back in 2005. I mean, what’s not to love about a shopping destination with free childcare, free lunches for littles and mind boggling-ly low prices?!?!
Since that first somewhat overwhelming trip to the land of Swedes, I have shopped for everything from counters to cushions, eaten more Swedish meatballs than I care to count and logged a remarkable amount of hours in Smaland (childcare center.) So imagine how ecstatic I was when my monogrammed and slip-covered chairs went public on Ikea Hackers, the laudable and encyclopedic, worldwide source of repurposed and redone Ikea products, last week!
Honey’s out golfing so I’m braving mass solo with the littles. Wish me luck, y’all.
