ikea via craigslist


I had this big plan to re-do my whole house with new furniture, new paint, and some accent pillows made from Caitlin Wilson Textiles fabric. But when you're a big dreamer, your plans and reality sometimes have a hard time coming together! As I was planning this home makeover, I knew my car needed some service, but I hadn't really prepared for just how much. And, I knew it would cost some money and time to re-do my living room, but I didn't really think about that either. Finally, I knew I would actually have to spend money to buy new furniture, but I wasn't really ready to part with my hard earned (and saved) cash!

The conflicts of my dream world and reality! :)

But, my mom and I did go to Ikea. We shopped and looked around, sat on couches, furnished my dream house (on a budget), and left with zero purchases! The next week I decided to see if I could find the couch I wanted on craigslist, and after a week of searching, not 5 minutes from my home, some one was selling the couch I wanted with two different covers, both in colours I wanted for 1/3 of what it would cost new. So maybe it pays off to dream and be realistic at the same time! ;)
