Ikea warms my heart

You may or may not know that hubby and I have been spending the last few years slowly updating our 1970's home.  The home was really built in the 50's, but the decor hadn't been touched since the 70's.  I never saw as much brown as I have in this house, brown walls, brown carpet, brown shag carpet, brown name it.  We've never really renovated a home before so we are learning as we go.   I'll have to catch you up to speed with all the projects, but for now let's talk about Ikea.   I love me some Ikea.   During a recent trip this vanity caught my eye.

This vanity would be for a small bath that is off the master.  It's a pretty tiny bathroom so I want to make it feel as light and airy as possible.  I just love the size of this sink and the frosted doors. I looks pretty modern, but I think it could work in that space.  I also purchased the small cabinet that goes with it because I like to have things organized and

I have an idea of doing the wall behind this vanity in all glass mosaic tile.  Like this one:

Yes, we have never installed tile before.  What's there to learn...LOL  Ummmm.  I'm sure a ton.  Thank goodness for google and diy shows.  And of course the hubby. I will post a picture when we start it and the finished product.

Until next time..........

Time flies when you are having fun.

I've been spending way to much time reading blogs instead of posting to mine.  I totally forgot I even had one.

Anyway, moving on.  Have you been to Z Gallerie lately?  This place setting caught my eye.   It had so much bling to it. And a girl can never have too much....LOL 

Look at this vase and the blinged out flowers.  I think each one of those stems were $4 a piece. 

 My favorite part was this leather placemat, although here it looks so much more sparkley than in person.

There are 8 seats at our dinning room table.  The cost on all these pieces would be to much for this coupon girl to handle. 

 I'll post more about some of the other projects we've been working hard on.
