Since our master bedroom transformation, the boyfriend and I have made a mental note to get our patooties down to Ikea to trade in some of our stuff. But first I had to scour the Ikea website to prepare my list. List in pocket, I finally got around to actually driving there this week.
Originally, we bought too many curtain sets for our wall-o-cacooniness and I had no receipt, so that means thirty dollars of store credit. I headed up to the kitchen section to buy some of these. Sorry Katie, this item is sold out. Darn. What else is on the list?
Down to the pillow section I headed. You see, we have two pillows on our couch that were pillow-cover-less. Jeremy hates hiding the tags. And I told him that if we ripped them off, the pillow police would come get us :)
These silk pillow covers immediately caught my eye. Aren't they just yummy? And at $7.99 for a cover - they won't break the bank. Oh and the fabulous part - they come in several different colors...so you could definitely find a color combo that would work in your own home AND they look way more high-quality in person than on the website.
Since my current lumbar pillow is from Ikea - it was easy to play mix and match while in the store. I was getting really excited as I dreamed of pillow combos that would give our leather chairs a bit of a softer edge.
Cover firmly in place, the pillow has texture overflowing and is just what the doctor ordered for my den. The crinkly silk has a subtle classiness to it and the color is warm and worldly all in one.
And here is the finished product - a softer place to rest your Ikea-worn patootie, a more finished and polished look for our den chairs, and all for $0. Of course, I still don't have my wine racks...so a second trip will have to wait till I have $300 in my account for spending. Yes, I know the wine racks only cost $8...but hey, why fight the gimme's?!!?
