Yes, I am deprived… I am 22.5 years old and just took my first trip to IKEA!
I can explain though! You see… I live 8 hours from the two closest stores, which are in Chicago and Cinci. Well, I finally had my chance because I just so happened to be close to IKEA the other day for a wedding in Ohio. Oh, that was also my first time in Ohio too… yay for firsts! So, Ryan, Jon Class, and I went a little early to experience IKEA before the wedding rehearsal.
We started with lunch (I still think it’s funny that they have a restaurant!) and took the whole tour of the showroom and then the marketplace. I found an office chair I liked and that fit me (I needed one for Ryan’s room) and so I made my first IKEA purchase too.
Also – I loooved this workstation they had for my crafting stuff and computer, so I put it on my wish list! Ryan and I were also keeping our eyes open for future home furnishings (nice & affordable king size bed, yes please).
Here’s some pictures from my first IKEA experience…
My new chair in Ryan’s room…. (which, by the way, is like an Ikea showroom with all his Ikea furniture, rugs, bedding, lamps, chairs, etc!)
