A week months ago, I convinced my husband to take a trip to the nearest Ikea. I demanded it late at night when he was most likely half asleep and had no idea what he actually agreed on.
We drove out on New Years Day where I filled the cart full of bits and pieces that make me happy. I estimated just a few hours while in the store but that was a big wash. I was overly optimistic and under the premise that I had a targeted (and printed) list which would make it easy. I went there specifically for organization, rugs and textiles. I printed lists based on which room they would go to.
Three hours later the cart was full. We were checking out with things I didn't plan on getting and missing things I did plan on getting. I guess that's life in general.
Here are some of my favorite rug purchases from Ikea.
This went into the youngest one's room. It's a low pile which works for truck wheels and the lines can be used for race tracks. I would like to get a second one and laying it next to the other during my next Ikea run. I find just one looks far too small.

This will be going into my daughter's room once I get around to updating it. Right now she has lavender and plum walls with my old bedset from my mom's house. It's a nice set but I'm looking for something a bit more desert cowgirl. I've put together a pinterest board with inspiration and items for her room. You can check it out here.
I'm pretty sure if they had everything in stock I wanted we'd be well past broke and I'd be trying to redecorate a cardboard box. Regardless, I still have plenty to work with have my hands in many different projects already.
