Ok, well maybe Ikea isn't the most romantic place to go after dinner and a movie, but it's also where we spent Valentine's Day. And what's a better relationship test than wandering Ikea, picking out furniture and then trying to assemble it? What doesn't kill you will make you stronger.
My main purchase last night was a bookcase. I've been wanting some sort of shelving in the bedroom because I found I had a big lack of storage for all my beauty supplies. It seems that whenever January rolls around I have this massive urge to organize, update and clean.
Exhibit A - the before photos:
Blech. Now that I've changed it I can't believe how bad it was before! I think it looks so much better now, although G said that you can't even tell a boy lives there (that's the point dear).

I also did a little mirror inspiration. Aside from the hair cutouts from a magazine (FLARE, I think?) I added a note from Annie Pancake after winning a giveaway of hers (she's so sweet!), the ad from the Alex Pangman Nov. 11 concert and a photo of the most glamorous 1940s lady I know, my Grandma Marchant when she was a young girl (she has amaaaaaaazing hair).
|The second-from-the-right photo from the magazine actually annoys me every time I look at it |
because the heading is 'Victory Rolls' when the photo is clearly a pompadour. Sigh
