shopping at Ikea

Let me just put it out there, I am not a fan of Ikea.  Since it opened in Draper, I have been a total of 2 times...one of those times being yesterday.  Van and I were tryin' to burn a few minutes, and I decided to stop in.  I realized why I didn't like this store yet again...you can't just stop in, we got lost, and it took us forever to find our way out!
In the process though I found these...


Maybe I won't be painting.  This is done for me!

I found this cute "changing table".  If you could see how small this nursery is, I won't fit maybe a crib and a few really small items.  So, this looks perfect, small enough, and convenient.  What do you think? 
My thought right now is that why by anything too expensive when I am not planning another baby (anytime soon).  I might as well go more practical.
This baby shopping could get a little addicted, maybe I shouldn't take anymore work off so that I don't go browsing to find more stuff. LOL.

I only like IKEA when I only have one or two of my older kids with me. My 2 year old ran off last time and I found her on the top of a bunkbed. No ladder so not even sure how she got up. The cribs are cute- and save you from the hassle of painting!!

FINALLY, someone else that hates Ikea! My sister is in love with the place and cannot understand why I hate going there. If I only am looking for kitchen items, I want to be able to walk to the kitchen section and then walk out. NOT walk through the entire everything-I-didn't-come-here-for maze.

I hate to admit it but I have yet to enter the doors of IKEA! I know that I will stay way to long and still not see everything and i will probably buy way too much stuff. I really like what you found though.

No way, I'm not a fan of IKEA either for some of the same reasons. I must say I'm not a fan of the crib colors but I am sure you would make it look awesome. I love the changing table. So cute!

I do not enjoy Ikea... aka the maze! As for the crib, personally, I am more a fan of white, then decorate however you want with bedding, etc... but that's just me... the changing table is way cool though, but I worry that it is not very sturdy once the baby gets a little bigger? I have only bought one thing at Ikea, a whiteboard / chalkboard easel for my classroom, and it's only worth about what I paid for it, which is not much... it's wobbly on one side, and I even exchanged it once! Grr...

I love the pattern on the changing table. All the pockets are great.
