Ikea Trip

Today we took our first trip to Ikea since we purchased the house. Wow! I can't believe it has taken us this long! The last time we were there it was to buy stuff for the wedding but we have been planning a trip every since we closed on the house back in February. Ikea is such a strange place, we were there right when it opened to beat the crowds and there were already all these people lined up just to get in, crazy! Still, it's easy to see why it's so popular, it has such nicely designed furniture and accessories and they are so cheap! We had a lot of fun browsing and got tons of inspiration for things we want to do to the house! (more on that later). We also continued the kitchen organization quest by purchasing some more spice containers and additional racks to hang kitchen stuff from. Here's what we came out with,

some of our new spice jars on the new corner pantry. It's starting to egt that eclectic apothecary shop look we are going for. 

more spice jars
new wrack for hanging mugs before we put it on the wall

racks and mugs up on the wall! now we don't have to stack our mugs on top of each other in the cabinets.

the kitchen is starting to look so much more clean and organized. 

It's pretty gratifying to see the kitchen getting so much more usable and organized. It's also a much more pleasant place to work in when it's clutter free. So far so good but I have a lot more plans for this kitchen, I can't wait to get it all together in here!
