I heart IKEA

Since we have a very small house, I have limited crafting space. With only 2 bedrooms, our dining room has become my sewing room. We never have meals on our table, and the hutch has been home to most of my crafting supplies. When it started looking like this, I knew things were out of control. A quick little trip to Ikea and I now have a somewhat organized space. It's not able to hold everything, but it defintiely cleaned the space up.
I may get some more of these organizers for my bedroom/office area. Most of the rooms in our house serve a dual purpose, and I just love little things like this that make the space more functional. Ikea rocks, seriously. We are lucky enough to have one down the street. Unfortunately, me and the rest of the D.C. area likes to shop there, so it can be quite crowded. At least they have .50 hot dogs to keep Isaiah entertained!

Love the new organizers! Ikea is one of my favorite places ever. Ours is in town and I love to shop there -- except for all the people. I swear, that place is always a zoo. Factor in the way the store is laid out and you can see that it's an overwhelming experience for this ADHD/claustrophobe.

I haven't been to an Ikea since before Joe and I were married. In fact, before we were even engaged. I think we live closest to the one in White Marsh, but it's still pretty far away. Darn it!

I *wish* that I had an ikea close by. I think I could get in serious trouble in that place.
Love your red hutch!!

I love those! I've seen lots of cool IKEA stuff in blogland lately. It may be time for a trip out there.

I heart IKEA too! :) Unfortunately the nearest one is 2 hours away from here... Still that is probably good, since I would spend too much money there if it was closer:)

I wish we had one in driving distance...well I guess Maryland is right here, but taking three children during the week may give me a headache. I need to experience it sometime though.

I work at Ikea and they might as well not pay me, and just pay me in product. Seriously our house was furnished in Ikea even before I worked there.
