Friday FAIL

We don't have an IKEA store where I live, but I have visited one. I was prepared to get forced through the maze, and was delighted to find some clearly-marked "shortcuts". The furniture was gorgeous and I bought some small items—nothing that needed assembly! I have assembled furniture and other things that came in boxes, although not from IKEA, so I get the picture.

Without further ado, let's go to IKEA.

Have a great weekend!
From Hermione's Heart

Happy Friday, Hermione! :) Loved these! The maze pic was my fav. Thanks for the morning smiles!

I've only been to ikea twice, and found it to be quite an interesting shopping experience. I've not purchased anything to put together, but some relatives have. I hear that it is usually quite the ordeal! Have a nice weekend. Many hugs,


Roz said...

LoL Hermione, have not been into an Ikea store. Happy Friday, hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

I love IKEA!
Most of the furniture in my house was bought there, I put most of it together myself, sometimes with help from my husband, but usually my daughter assists me, she has been putting together IKEA furniture with me since she was 3 years old. It's not difficult at all and I actually enjoy doing it.

There is one item we bought at IKEA that I am not too fond of, the Proppmätt chopping board, the IKEA site says: "Made of solid wood, which is a durable natural material and gentle on your knives." Might be gentle on knives, but not on my bottom ;)

I love IKEA and just yesterday found out there will be one a mere ten miles from my house. They do make good use of space, lol.

Hermione, these made me smile, thanks. We have an IKEA about 40 mins from us which I like to visit. Have only purchased one thing we had to put together. I also got a couple of house plants from there which are doing really well.

We have lots of items from Ikea, including tea lights. Thanks for the laughs Hermione.

Love these! I have not been to Ikea in a long time. I used to love to wonder through and look at all their stuff. But nowadays I can't make it all the way through and always have to use the shortcuts. LOL

Cat said...

I've been wanting to go to Ikea ever since they put one up about an hour away from my home but haven't been able to do it yet. Can't wait until this shoulder is 100%...gonna have fun! Thanks for the giggles, Hermione...have a great weekend.

Hugs and blessings...Cat

Katie - I've also heard it is quite difficult.

Roz - Something to add to your bucket list.

Nena - You have a very clever daughter! The chopping board sounds qute nasty.

Leigh - Lucky you! When Target closed, I had hoped that the large space would be taken over by IKEA, but no such luck.

abby - Lucky you, to have such a helpful son.

Ronnie - I didn't know they sold plants too!

Sir Wendel - We go through lots of tea lights. I think I bought some on my only visit there.

Ripley - The shortcuts are very handy.

Cat -I hope your shoulder heals quickly so you can have fun in the maze!
