Ikea temptations

I took my mom to Ikea today (our third trip in the last week or so) to finalize a couple of cabinets we are using to create some extra storage and a worktop where we are removing her existing washer and dryer. 


I go to Ikea a lot by myself and I know all the shortcuts to bypass having to go through all the different departments and I tend to walk fast and get out as fast as possible. My mom likes to walk slow and look at everything. Which I realized today is not such a bad thing.



While we were walking by one of their bedroom displays I noticed a couple of pillows that I had never noticed before but when I went to find them they were not for sale. It turns out they were just selling the fabric. 


Have you looked at their fabrics? Honestly, I have always just walked past. 



The fabric has a nice weight to it and for the price I couldn't resist. 


Algort | $6.99 / yard


Tradklover | $7.99 / yard


I can see this as curtains in a child's room. 


I also saw some pretty cute rugs ... 



Unfortunately I had to resist those.


But on the way to check-out I grabbed a couple of dish towels ($2.99 for 2).

I don't have an Ikea close by. I've actually never even been to one. =[
