I needed to buy a chest of drawers for Fern to store her clothes in, and I had a gift voucher generously donated by Ikea when they came to photograph our home in May... gotta love that.
I think I've mentioned in previous posts that Fern is getting a daybed to sleep in once she graduates from her cot. It's sort of vintagey looking, so I wanted to get a chest of drawers to match.
As it turns out, I not only found the perfect piece at Ikea -- it's also on sale!! This is what I bought for just $249 (I didn't get the mirror you see below):
It is really sweet and a bargain at $250, but the handles are a little ho-hum... so I went on a search last night to see whether I could find something a bit more colourful and feminine, and found these on Etsy:
They are hand-cut glass, so shabby-CHIC and perfect for the look I'm creating in Fern's 'big girl' room. And, they're only US$15.50 for 4! I'm just waiting on a price for 6, and then I'm ordering them. Will post pics once I have them! Now, I'm wondering whether I should go one step further and line the drawers in some pretty paper? We'll see...
What Ikea purchased have you 'pimped'?
