I am all about IKEA. While visiting my parents I had a pretty sweet set up. My dad built a desk in the den where he does all sorts of good stuff while spending time with my Momma and watching TV. That desk was commandeered and became the Dream a Little Bigger crafting and blogging station!
From there I went through the IKEA catalog and made a list of all of the good things I wanted to buy to DIY later. I mean, everybody LOVES an IKEA hack, right? So I got on down with it and we made the drive down for a quick bite and a long shopping trip. We didn’t even go through the entire store because we were trying to make it to a museum shortly after but it seemed we still walked for days. The plan was to grab what was on my list and get out of there.
But Momma and I spied these lamps for $7. Where can you get a standing lamp for $7? IKEA, that’s where. And when we got it home and set it up, like immediately, the thing was kind of boring. Not really me. So a quick trip to the craft store and $3 in dye later, I had my $10 lamp.
And since I wasn’t sure whether or not I could carry it on a plane, it’s still in Houston but will be home and hanging out in my living room as soon as possible! Check out how to DIY up your own $10 lamp (gosh that’s just so freaking CHEAP!) over at iLoveToCreate now!
And since I was utterly devoid of any cat craft assistants, I borrowed Ruby and she was a fantastic help :) Thanks Miss Ruby-Doo.
