Bedroom Set..

My hubby is a SUPERMAN! Woohoo. In less than 7 hours he put together our whole bedroom set from IKEA. We got the Hopen set from IKEA, with a bed, two nightstands, and a chest of drawers. Not bad, considering he was home alone, dragged it up 3 stories, vaccumed and moved everything out of the way.

I won't complain about his housekeeping skills which are sorely lacking because he does a lot of stuff like this. I'm going to finish off by buying the hopen dressers either used or next year. Right now we're fine and we have to see what sort of space we have left.

As of now our houseguest may be staying longer because he was ditched by the person he was suppossed to move in with. Instead she bought a condo. So he's stuck looking. But he is considering purchasing as well, in which case he would just live with us until he buys a place, which as long as he pays rent I'm okay with. So our space issues are compounding.

Tomorrow I'll write what we bought and what we saved this weekend.

Your DH is so great :) Mine would do the same thing too...

I like the MALM set myself... something about the spaces in the headboard makes me shiver and wonder if my hair is going to get caught and ripped out one day.

But good choices! :) My dream is (when I own a house), to furnish my bedroom in matching furniture (finally!!!) from IKEA... Yes... :)

Er.. something about the spaces in the HOPEN set, that is..

The Malm set sits too low on the floor. And one day when I get my dream house I'll get a real bedroom set. This will go into the guest room, this stuff is okay. BUT the quality of the furniture won't last long term, it's nice to look at and cheap, but overall it won't last a long time.
