Last fall, the first IKEA in the area opened up in Denver and I had been talking about wanting to go for 6 months before that.
So for Valentines day, L-man remembered that little tidbit and made hotel reservations in Denver for us on Sunday night and Monday we finally had an IKEA experience.
I fell in love with these green cabinets right away and so we bought two. But as L-man was putting them together and putting them in place in the dining area, I had this horrible sinking feeling that I didn't like them there and for that purpose. Good grief, he was going to kill me!!!
It was such a relief to find out he was struggling too when I finally told him I didn't know if I wanted them there. So we decided to wait a couple of days and see if we changed our minds. So I started putting my beloved Cathrinholm and favorite cookbooks in them and it made me feel better. So then I got out my mom's china and arranged the pieces in the other cabinet and I was feeling even better. And now, I've done a complete 180 and am in complete love with the cabinets.
Has that ever happened to you? Loving a piece of furniture in the store and getting it home only to find you might have made a huge mistake? Please do tell!!
And happy, happy Friday to you!
p.s. For those of you that asked, I found out a couple days ago that my isosceles picnic quilt will be featured in the MBS on Saturday, March 3rd!!
