As most Kansas City design lovers know IKEA is coming!  But not only fall of 2014.  I had some wild ideas that I talked my builder into for my new home which meant a trip to IKEA.  Luckily Dallas was within driving distance and we had gracious friends that us stay with them.  Thanks Mark and Alisha.  I wanted a wall of built-ins in the office with sconces above but needed to stay on budget.  I was able to buy IKEA bookshelves and have them framed in by the trim carpenter.  The entire wall was sprayed Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy.  The wall is killer.  Here were some of my other finds.

I'm thinking 2 of these with cafe chairs could be fantastic on my patio.  Then I think I may be crazy to put a white table outside.

This fun shelf made into Drew's room.  Keep coming back for final pictures of our house and see how it was used.

This too made into the car which was packed to the hilt.  A little rub and buff and made this a golden beauty.

I especially love the size of these lights and for $29.99 you can't go wrong.
