Finishing Our Bathroom with IKEA!

New Showroom at IKEA
Anyone else love IKEA?!  Every time I go there I'm amazed with how cheap everything is!  So when we needed to finish our bathroom upstairs naturally IKEA is the place to check first.  Sure enough I found items that matched our bathroom and style with the total being $26!!


A few years ago we bought a crappy house and completely gutted it.  It's mostly done but the upstairs bathroom has remained unfinished.  We have a pitched roof so our bathroom is part of what used to be yucky attic space.  Now it's a bathroom for average height people...lol  Also you'll notice there is no door (lol) that will be the last detail. :)


Here are the items I got from IKEA for $26:
Towel Bar (the 2 bars swing out)
Toilet Paper Holder (toilet paper not included lol)
Towel Hanger
Shower Curtain


Here my daughter is helping with the installation.  The finished job looks so great!
It will be nice to have towels and toilet paper not randomly sitting on things.
Yeah!

Another thing I love about IKEA is that they not only have great contemporary items for average households but they have all kinds of options for tight spaces!
Or even if you don't have a small space necessarily but want space saving furniture/finishes, this is the place to shop!  It's motivating/inspiring to go and see all of their showrooms.  I always take lots of pictures to keep the motivation alive.
Nice to have this project done...on to the next one!


Thanks to SNAP and IKEA for providing a gift card so that I could finish my bathroom!  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.

Looks great! I love Ikea too - they have lots of great stuff for small spaces. I have a $199 wardrobe from there that is the nicest closet I've ever owned.
Thanks Daisy!
That's good to know Nat! We need to buy a closet for our son! Thanks for your comments!!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
