In other news, I thought I had found the solution to my small kitchen counter top space woes in the form of an island from IKEA. I was SUPER excited to go look at it and then text Eric a picture to see what he thought of it (the internet picture is garbage). After I sent him the picture, he called me immediately to say "Buy it now!" Every woman's dream, right?! I was so super excited, look at how nice it is! (excuse the blurry phone pics)
It has storage space, room for bar-stools, matches my white cabinets and butcher block counters perfectly, and is the right price for only $380. It WOULD'VE been awesome. Except that it is out of stock. Everywhere. Well, almost everywhere... If you live in Palo Alto, CA then by all means, head on over to your neighborhood IKEA and buy it (and-then-ship-it-to-me-immediately!). But the rest of us are stuck. =( The good news is that it is not being discontinued, as I originally thought, but rather so popular that it sold out almost immediately. I'm on a waiting list to be notified as soon as it arrives in the store (hopefully between Sept 6-10 according to the website?). I wasn't even expecting to come home with it tonight because I wasn't sure Eric would like it. But then I got myself all excited and now I feel jipped. =(
However, I am so super excited to bring it home (and make Eric put it together) within the next month!! What do you think of Ikea furniture? Love it or hate it? How do you feel about this or other islands you've seen of theirs? I can still back out if you'd like to share any IKEA island horror stories! Happy Saturday evening, friends!
