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.
So hopefully next Wednesday I’ll have a radical transformation to share! Please send me your ideas! Don’t forget to enter the Giving Thanks for You! giveaway I’m hosting with the lovely Victoria at the Manicurator. Lots of awesome prizes up for grabs. If you look carefully in the pic of the room…you can see two of them. Just waiting to be won!
