It's Wednesday...time for the weekly mani cave reveal. I won't keep you in suspense for a second longer! Wait for it...wait for it...
...keep waiting for it...As you can see, the only thing I accomplished in the TMC this week was a shuffling of the mess. At least now I can get to my polish. Between preparing for Thanksgiving, going to a Thanksgiving dinner, hosting a Thanksgiving Leftovers Event (at my house) and a throwing a completely unrelated-to-Thanksgiving family party (also at my house)...the poor TMC was neglected. But I did manage to clean and then destroy my home no less than three times in three days! Anyway, the lack of progress in the TMC doesn't mean I can't share future TMC plans and ask for advice.
I'm trying to decide what furniture to have in the room besides the large pink table. I don't know if I want a counter/desk that goes around the perimeter? Hanging cabinets? or shelves with baskets? I know many of you use IKEA Helmers for polish storage. But what about IKEA Alex? If Helmer's weren't metal, this would be an easy decision. (I'm not a fan of metal furniture.) Plus, Alex comes in a few sizes (tall, short and wide) and can be used as a table leg. Has anyone used the Alex drawer unit to store polish? I've seen it on Pinterest before.
I also have my eye on this Ikea Ferle rug. I figure I need to go with something as inexpensive as possible because it will likely see it's share of polishing/crafting mayhem. I need to see this one in person though - I feel so lucky that there's an IKEA just 30 minutes away! Going to IKEA is my answer for everything. Broke a lamp? Go to IKEA. Have 47 photographs that need framing? Go to IKEA. Craving meatballs? Go to IKEA. Feeling depressed? Go to IKEA.
