Currently, Winnipeg does not have an Ikea. (But there is one under construction - scheduled to open late this year!!) The closest one is in Minneapolis, which is about a 7-hour drive from here. Not exactly a Saturday afternoon trip. I love Ikea for household staples like white picture frames, candles, and tea towels to name a few. Where else can you get a giant pack of tea lights for $2?

Sometimes, Ikea has great finds that I have incorporated into my house, such as accent pillows, side tables, and much more. I've seen some great 'Ikea Hacks' on blogs lately, like this great night table from a wonderful blog - Take the Side Street.

Look at the 'Before'!
I think my favourite items in Ikea are their kitchens. They make beautiful cabinetry, in a wide range of designs and finishes. All below images are from House and Home. I think it would be so much fun to get to design your own dream kitchen! Maybe one day... in a VERY distant future!!

By attaching a frame around each drawer (obviously protruding the front out a little further), how did you keep the front flush to the sides?
