Thanks for all your feedback on our Ikea haul this past Monday! Never have I felt more encouraged for my shopping/spending habits...so thank you! ;)
I told you I would reveal how I put my great finds to work. As I've mentioned before, our dining room has become a makeshift playroom. It works out pretty well because we don't use the dining room that often and it's really the only "extra" space we have available in our house. We had to get rid of our bar cart anyway, and we are in desperate need of more storage, so the Expedit shelf was the perfect solution.
And I have to say...I'm loving it!
We bought bins for the bottom shelves and use the middle two shelves for books and toy storage. The top row of shelves are still housing "adult" decor...we'll see how long that lasts!
Notice a little friend?
And here's a little snapshot of how the shelf works into the room. I think it actually opens up the room, don't you?
Do you own the Expedit? How do you style it?
