I recently received an email from the Apartment Therapy people that let me know the IKEA 2012 catalog was on the way. I can't wait to get my copy!
There was a picture using the item from the left that I totally fell in love with. I wish there was a store closer to me, but as long as I can get stuff delivered I have a feeling that IKEA and I are going to be best friends.
I will post more on where I'm going to building my home, what it will look like, and how long it will take. I plan to do what I can myself and hire out only those things I cannot do or not willing to do (electrical!!) to keep my costs as low as possible. This way I can pay as I go and not have HUGE loan at the end that I now have to pay back. Same process will be used on decorating the inside, one room at a time.
