Frank and I drove a little over 2 hours to go to IKEA, a little north of Cincinnati, on Sunday, looking for furniture for our downstairs...mainly for my scrap area and also for the t.v. section too. We weren't planning on buying anything on Sunday. THEN, I saw a fantastic table, reduced by $100 (and they only had a few left)!!! BUT, we were in the wrong car!

So, I just had do drive all the way back on Monday afternoon (by myself), after my Monday Morning Bowling league. This stuff is great but very heavy!! I brought home this large table and the matching wall unit. The table is actually a dining room table but I wanted a really large work space. The boxes stuck out the back of my car's hatch back and I had to tie the door down, so for over 2 hours I drove with the back door open and it was cold and very noisy! I was nervous that my knots wouldn't hold or the boxes would slip out the small open space. Thank you Girl Scouts for teaching me how to tie knots!!

As soon as I have the whole thing set up I'll be sure to take pics of my actual work space.

Thanks for stopping by.

Peggy, you are really making me jealous with all your fun goodies on your blog lately! I LOVE IKEA! I would love to go in there and buy tons of fun shelves and a new office set up (even though I love my Target Tressel table!)
Have fun with your new goodies!

That shelving unit is awesome, and I'm sure you've got lots of goodies to fill it up!
