Weekend Rewind: IKEA Time

I stopped in IKEA Bolingbrook this weekend on the way down to my parents’ house. I knew I wasn’t going to buy anything (big)—I think I’m finally over that part of my life—but it’s always fun to look for ideas in their model rooms and checkout what’s new. Here are a few of my favorite things:

Glivarp Dining Table, $299

Glivarp Dining Table, $299 and Tobias Chairs, $80/each

I never thought about it, but I love the idea of getting a dining table that matches my coffee table and side tables; I think it’d help the flow from living room to dining room to have something repeating. A similar dining table from CB2 would run me $350, Crate & Barrel $800… And neither have an extender like the IKEA version, which would be great for dinner parties!

And a few more…

    Trust me, you are never over buying ‘big’ things. And glass top tables are a real pain..always dirty, but you should know that.

    I bought the table. It looks fabulous with the Tobias chairs. But it wobbles from side to side. I screw things in TIGHT. I wish I knew how to fix it; it looks so nice, but is not so fun to eat at.
