Err, on a shelf.
It’s one of those things that I have talked about for several posts. Oversized letters. A long shelf above our bed. A canvas or two propped on top. I assure you, as many times as you heard about it, Chris has heard about it MORE and I thought about it even more than that. So yesterday when I tracked down the exact shelf I wanted at Ikea for half the price in a classifieds ad, it’s no surprise I went immediately to pick it up. After putting Greta to bed and eating dinner, Chris and I were both tired. We would have been pretty okay just snuggling and watching American Idol (not really one of our “shows” but we were tired, remember?). The thought of putting together something from Ikea is pretty daunting at times. It usually requires a lot of assembling and time (we are experienced Ikea assemblers). But, there was still some excitement in me about finally seeing my above-the-bed vision come to fruition and luckily it took like fifteen minutes from start to finish. Woot. Without further ado:
