Where I had planned to make up for lost sewing time by chaining myself to the sewing nook at the cabin all day – I ended up cutting my day short and headed down from the mountain around 3pm---
One of the doors we bought on Friday was damaged by a forklift, and needed to be exchanged.
This is the BAD thing about IKEA. It’s 70 miles from my house …and 100 miles from the cabin, making returning anything or making exchanges a daunting prospect.
I’ve only had to return a couple of items in the past 7 years….it’s just that it happened in the span of 3 days, mixed with my own dingleheadedness of leaving the class quilt at home which resulted in a whole LOT of extra driving this weekend.
And there went my sewing time!!
The parking lot was slammed at 4:30pm!
So what’s a girl to do but fortify herself with Swedish meatballs??
The lines were LONGER than long!
I think the entire world was out en force IKEAizing their lives with Thanksgiving a bit more than a week away.
But it was worth it! Assembly required and all!
New cutting table #1 and Billy bookcase minus doors
((Which are now in the back of my van and will be taken back up for Thanksgiving!))
In time these bead board paneling walls will be replaced with horizontal pine planks as shown in the dining area photo below….it’s on the to-do list!
Dining room table and 6 chairs.
We just added a few more guests to our Thanksgiving dinner plans, so I picked up 2 more chairs along with the replacement glass door this afternoon. This table will sit 8 fairly comfortably.
Guest room Queen bed!
The guest room is ready for my Dad to arrive a week from tomorrow! This is the bed frame we also picked up at IKEA on Friday. Previously the bed had an ugly pine headboard…bye bye old. hello new!
As much fun as this is, I sure hope there won’t be any more IKEA runs any time soon!!
I DID SEW!!
I did get some sewing done! I am up to 38 Spider web blocks…with more to come!
It’s just past 8:30pm here. I’m ready for some jammies and a round of binding will be commencing shortly!
Have a great evening, Everyone!
