IKEA . Strikes . Again

Sorry for not posting yesterday, but I was at IKEA for literally the whole day! Now that we have an actual house, we also have an actual reason to buy actual furniture! Most of our things are currently a mix of vintage (my parents are antique dealers!) and newer pieces, and yesterday we went to round out the "newer" part of our collection.

For only $1300.00 we ended up with: a new bed, an entertainment center/cabinet, a dining table and four chairs, an office desk, a cute filing cabinet, a tall mirror, and some various other household goodies!

I'll make sure to post pics once we have everything (ugh) put together.

And in other, unrelated news, can I please have Scarlett Johansson's hair?

Wow, that's quite a haul from Ikea! I'm envious. Scarlet's hair is just hot - it's that disheveled just out of bed but perfect look! I think the cut may become another "Rachel".

yay! Can't wait to see what you got! I love Ikea. they have so many fabulous things there. and ohmygod - her hair is so fab. I'd love to have that do but in my brunette...I would look like halloween as a blonde...I've been wanting to cut my hair just for a change but I'd look llike a chia pet if I did.
