As many of you know, Dan travels a lot with his job. If he is assigned to an easy job within driving distance then I get to tag along! One of these trips popped up this past week. Piqua, Ohio. Slightly north of Dayton AND slightly north of the new IKEA. I was able to catch up on my TLC, HGTV & Food Network on Friday morning while Dan was administering some training sessions. We grabbed some lunch and headed to the mecca of inexpensive Swedish furniture, appliances, home decor, etc. We were able to spend a couple of hours there and I could have easily spent more. We very nearly bought this brown leather couch. We put it off for another trip after we thought about how we really need to replace our fridge. We DID buy the curtains for our upstairs living room ( as well as curtains for our big white room downstairs and coordinating ones for the door to my craft room. I'm really happy that we found the red, mattress-ticking like stripped curtains for the downstairs. The ones for the upstairs are a very nice neutral colored fabric. The best thing about all of them is that they come with an iron-on hemming strip so you can hem them to your desired length. I've always loved the idea of floor to ceiling drapes so they're perfect as they are. If anyone decides to make a trip to Ikea in the future, please let me know. We just might decide that we need a new fridge AND a new leather couch. :o)
