Feeling Blue???

If I ever have the chance to design my own kitchen I always thought I would go all white but after seeing this soft blue kitchen I may have changed my mind???

This space is spectacular!!!
The pale blue contrasting with the black/gold stove is divine.

Jennifer Lopez's kitchen in California...

What do you think, are you a fan of the blue???

Another Amazing Transformation...

Remember my ebay coffee table I got for $36!!??

My plan was to have it painted in a hi-gloss white and make it look similar to this...

Well it's done and I think it looks AMAZING!!!

For local readers the very talented Alexis from Alexis Vintiques painted my table.
Alexis owns a fabulous antique store in Wilmette, IL along with offering custom painting services!

Ikea Baby!!!

This may be hard to believe but I had never been to Ikea!!!
Last week I made my maiden voyage and got a TON of stuff!!!
I went with two girlfriends and we could barely fit all of our stuff in the car.

This map is SUPER cool, my friend got it for her playroom...

Loved this zebra print only $49.99!!!
I've seen similar pieces for triple the cost...

Darling gold and pink vases...

I bought this light fixture for my home office...

This one is going in my son's bedroom...

Here's Margie checking out some candles :)

Our over-loaded carts!!!

Here's me trying on a lamp shade for size :0

OMG it all fit BARELY!!!

I am now officially addicted to IKEA!!!!
Can't wait to go back...
