We are back in Nevada. On our way out of town, we stopped at IKEA. Our tax refund came in this weekend, and the stars were in our favor, so we decided it was time to pick up our new bookshelves for the library (BILLY and BENNO). I am very excited.
We've decided to wait to put them up until we can redo the whole library at once. We need to pick out the paint (I'm thinking a two-tone purple and merlot), clean out the room and paint it, put up the shelves, then put everything back in and organize it. It's going to look so cool.
We were going to buy a coffee table too, because it was on sale. It's the one with little display cubbies underneath a glass top. It would have been perfect for displaying rocks, doubling as a workspace for Beeper's school and art stuff. We didn't get it, though, because it only comes in Birch, not Beech, so it wouldn't match the shelves. Beeper will just have to use a plastic shelf or the coffee table in the living room until Daddy can build him a table.
It's a good thing we got that tax refund, because I also splurged quite a bit more than usual on clothes this week. I hope you're happy, Lindsay!
