I love IKEA! Even though my father is a carpenter who has built me a ton of beautiful furniture (thanks Dad!) IKEA just has some great, practical pieces that I can't do without. As far as I'm concerned, IKEA is Swedish for "hell ya!"

putting it together...
Well over a year ago, we bought a bench and shelf from IKEA for our front hall. For over a year these two items have been sitting in their boxes in the garage. We already had a bench in our front hall, but it was a bit too big and just became a place for us to pile crap. As a result our front hall was always a disaster. Every couple of weeks, I would remember the boxes in the garage and think to myself that this is the weekend I would put them together. This past weekend, I finally got around to it (mostly because my parents took the ill-fitting bench off our hands) and Steve helped by hanging the shelf on the wall. Order has been restored to our front hall and the Virgo in me couldn't be happier. Now I just have to change the floor tiles, paint the boring white wall and hang some pictures on the big, blank wall across from the bench and it will be perfect! Ahh, the joys of home ownership. The renovations are never done.
