I was of course so excited to go to Ikea this past weekend. I had a list in my head of what I wanted, and totally didn't get any of it. I didn't see any drum shades that would work on the lights going down my stairs. That was a major bummer. I did see a lot of pillow covers I loved, but nothing along the lines of what I was thinking for our living room. I checked out the fabrics too, but by the time we got down to those I think the men, boys, and my mom were like, "alright already let's go" in their heads. I just couldn't think. We did get a fabulous light that we are going to put downstairs once we get it all setup. We also got these round cowhide chair pads. I was going to use them for chair pads, but then I thought these could be awesome sewn together as wall art, a rug, for the table. Tom loved them too. I am not sure what I will be doing with them but we bought ten. They were on clearance for $4.99. I also got some of the small melma mirrors in hopes I could do something cool like the pic below at my brothers, but Adam's Halloween costume consumed all of our time. We bought 16 of those mirrors and want to do a design similar to that picture in his condo. Here are some pics of our stuff.
