Late to the IKEA “love-fest”


I have been searching for two simple nightstands for our guest room and this is what I’ve been finding around town..overpriced, poorly made, soft “wood- stuff” from countries far away that emit alarming, unidentifiable odors. (The furniture that is- not the countries..)

I finally, reluctantly, made the 20 minute drive to IKEA. Not quite sure why I didn’t consider it sooner.. but lo and behold, once there, I fell in love with a little shelving collection called the KALLAX..

..large, beautifully sturdy, well made, doesn’t stink, not a nightmare to put together and the smallest “cube” is

(wait for it)

only $35!

..And perfect for a nightstand!


So I am officially an IKEA fan…hey, better late than never.



  1. I have never been inside an IKEA store. Living in the Midwest means limited shopping opportunities. I can browse online though and close the browser when I’m tired of shopping, and then, just like Dorothy, I’m instantly transported back home.
