I love Ikea, and we plan to take a shopping trip probably in the summer to get stuff for the kitchen mainly, but some other items as well. Here's some of the things that are on my current (things may change as the house develops) wishlist:
Skar (sorry, I don't know how to add all the accents etc. in other languages) bench with shoe storage. This will be perfect for the entry to put one's shoes (oh, I will be so happy to not wear shoes inside again....oh, the tracked-in dirt! But, it isn't safe to not wear shoes inside currently), and you can sit on it to take them off!
Sebastian bar stool. We'll need some for the island and I like that these have a bit of a back (but we'll need to test drive first).
Grimle glass-door wall cabinet. I've seen this (or something similar...but I thought it had frosted glass doors) in dining rooms with dishes in them. Although our future kitchen island will hold most everything, I'd like some of these in the kitchen to hold our everyday dishes/glasses so that when guests are over, they don't have to hunt.
Trollsta sideboard. Now, this is a bit extravagant and would probably be a later purchase (did I mention BUDGET remodel?) I love this in black...but...
if it were yellow, it would mirror what we're thinking of doing with the kitchen counters...
Pragel countertop. I like the fresh lemon yellow for the kitchen!
Seeing the last three pieces inspired me....The yellow would link the kitchen to dining area (it's also going to be a library), and if I had another sideboard in black in the living room area, it would visually link it to the dining area (they are next to one another)! Hmmm...more to ponder for sure!
Off to Jenny's for the day! Happy Thursday!
