thrifting (2)

It has been about two years that IKEA moved into town.  A very anticipated and welcome move.  After all, we had to drive more than a couple of hours up to Seattle to get our Scandinavian fix in. While I haven’t been to Portland’s IKEA as much as I thought I would, I ALWAYS hit the ‘AS IS’ department.

I have found area rugs, odd pieces of furniture, fabric, and last week

this lampshade!  For two measly dollars!

It had a pencil mark on it. Came off easy!

Every morning, when it is still darkish outside, I sit by it, enjoying its friendly glimmer and my coffee.

Now — this find is unbeatable:

The dear husband found it on the street!

We had always wanted a bit more light in the upstairs hallway and this door is just perfect!

I have to mention the crafty qualities of the dear husband here:  he stripped the old paint, added wood on either side for the perfect fit, replaced a broken glass and painted it!

What can I say, perfect!
