Nesting Ikea Style

This weekend we decided we could wait no longer to start making this house (er, condo) a home. Like all cool kids do, we spent our Saturday getting crazy and the Canton Ikea.

Brian was über excited to have a task at hand and went to assembling our new furniture with a fervor I haven’t seen before… And 6 hours later, voila! We have a new tv stand and cabinate for our pretty new things!

Our fur baby couldn’t help but offer a paw-

Getting ready to assemble!

We went with the Hemnes Living rooms series. This is the 2 drawer version of the tv stand. The cabinet options were many and we took forever choosing this beauty with a big space at the bottom for hiding kitchen equipment until we have a bigger kitchen.

#2 all done and filled with our special things!

All done!! We still need to arrange things and get the matching bookshelf but it's out of stock :-(

I love the white wood and I can’t wait to switch out our dingy old miss matched pieces for more pretty bright new ones! The bookshelf unit we will be getting is out of stock because of supplier issues, but hopefully we’ll be able to pick this beauty up soon!

Only the rest of everything to go before this place is looking in tip top shape! We’ll start with cleaning up after Hurricane Wedding.

Love,
