Over the weekend, Todd & I made a road trip down to Cincinnati to go to Ikea and buy some nursery furniture. I can't believe we're already at the point where we are buying furniture for Baby Rodrick's room. Time is starting to fly by!
First things first though, we actually ordered the crib on Friday night. Target was having a baby sale and we had been looking at this one for the past month or so and we decided to order it. It arrived on Tuesday so putting it together is on our to-do list once we paint the nursery.
Now on to our adventure at Ikea....
If you've never been to Ikea, do yourself a favor and find one ASAP and allow yourself at least 2 hours to wander around. We actually had a list of things we were looking for but once you walk through the display rooms, you will without a doubt, find more to buy. I love the completed look of the display rooms to give you an idea of how the furniture will actually look and how to decorate.
This hood is on Todd's wish list for our kitchen
We liked these lamps but can't buy it yet until we know whether Baby Rodrick is a boy or girl
We actually spent significant time in the children's section, which was a first...typically we skip right over this area
We were loaded up and ready to go
So what did we buy?
Our main reason was to pick up this dresser. It will also double as our changing table with changing pad on top.
We also bought a few picture ledges to hang in the nursery and will add photos and prints later on.
And this is what we are planning on doing with the spice racks....turning them into bookshelves!
We also bought a few non-nursery items to spruce up our new dining room furniture. We bought this bowl and decorative balls.
