IKEA rocks

You know those sea fans I've been hoarding?
Well, I managed to finally frame two of them.
I painted one white, the other gold...
I'm still playing around with background colors.
But I think I'm getting the hang of it.
It took me a while to find a frame big enough
and deep enough to hold the sea fans without breaking it.
I've seen the Ribba frame before but
thanks to Sherri and this post I saw last month
I knew when I saw her pictures
that this was the frame for me.
Best part is the price...
under $20 for this size
{20.5 x 20.5}
They come in other colors too...
just not sure they are all this deep.
While I was at IKEA picking up these frames
I saw this...
a take on my favorite octopus...
and while looking for the octo link
I found these as well...
This set of three is only $9.
Yes, nine. dollars. for. three.
And how fun would these be in a kids' room?
Three for $12.
And finally my favorite IKEA find...
their newest sofa,
the Stocksund.
for $599.
In three colorways.
Thinking this may be perfect for
our old guest room soon to be boys' game room.
I think I'm in love with this sofa.
And if that's wrong I don't want to be right.



  1. This is making me really want to go to IKEA!!!

    1. you should go Mary Ann...I would love to see what you pick out from there! :)

  2. I need to get to Ikea! Then I need to paint mine! Did you use spray paint?
    Love the way yours turn out!

    1. I actually first tried using RIT dye but the color didn't really absorb the way I wanted. I had craft paint on hand so I used that but i'm seriously thinking of taking them out and trying spray paint again. I saw one the other day, think it was the nester, who used spray paint and it looked awesome. putting white spray paint on my list and will try it if I ever remember to get some :)

    2. I can't find the right blue in a
      spray can. You know the blue I am looking for...that gray blue like blue coral. Planning on hitting IKEA next week. Have you put yours up yet?

  3. I haven't been to an Ikea since I moved back from Texas. Miss it. Hope you are having a weekend of great finds!
