>>> Ikea! <<<

After the boys' swimming lessons, popped into Ikea in Coventry. We've not been there before and it a fairly new store. Gosh, it's a very impressive building, 6 stories high with a great play area for children. Kids stay in there for an hour and a half and they take kids up to 10 years of age, unlike the one in Wednesbury where it's only a mere 45 mins (you simply can't finish shopping for 45 mins) and kids up to 7 yrs are allowed in. I think we will be going to the Coventry one in future!

So what did we buy? A computer chair, a bedside table for my bedroom and a 6 drawer cabinet for my scrapping items. It's a narrow cabinet measuring 28 (w) x 43 (d) x 69 (h)cm. It costs £19.99 and yup, I went for that colour. Love the colour red. I had wanted to get those Really Useful Boxes but there wasn't anywhere in my room to put them whereas I had found a little niche in the room for this. I'm hoping that now I will make better use of my scrapbooking embellishment now that they have been re-sorted. The drawers are quite deep so I'll be piling a fair amount in there.

I do luv my craft room now. (Note to self: take photos of it!) It has been tedious sorting it out but I'm glad I did it. Makes scrapping so much easier now! TTFN!

Arent these fab! I keep all my thickers, stickers and rub-ons in mine.

The drawers dont take up too much space either.

Looking forward to seeing pics of your room audrey x

I have those drawers in my scrap room too and I love them. Perfect for A4 sized paper and other bits and bobs. My scrap room has red and white furniture in, so it matches perfectly! Have fun putting it together ;-D
