My Five Favorite IKEA Items In My Home

These months just fly by, it's already time for another edition of My Five Favorites.
This month we're sharing our favorite IKEA pieces in our homes, and it was tough
narrowing it down. I'm a fan of mixing high and low pieces and IKEA always comes
 through with reasonable prices, they're great if you're on a budget or like changing
 things up more often. Stop by my blogging friends to check out their favs too:

Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles

Our guest this month is sweet Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality, she's the epitome of 
southern charm, has a knack for DIY projects and thrifting, and used IKEA for her new
 kitchen! She's been blogging for ten years and has shared life's ups and downs, her
 positive attitude is always inspiring. When you pop over to check out her favs don't miss
 her Fashion Over 50 series, how cute and stylish is she?!! 
One of my favorite projects she's done is this great patio makeover. 

On to my IKEA favorites ~ 
I couldn't help but sneak in a couple extras since they were in the same photo. 

#1 - Ektorp Sectional & Pillows

We've had our Ektorp Sectional for a few years now, and still love it. It's held up well and 
I don't worry about the light color with the washable slipcovers, they clean up like a dream
 when I spill my coffee or a kiddo has messy hands. A couple of my favorite black and 
white pillows I use all the time are Stockholm and Lappljung Ruta

#2 - Ritva Curtains  

I have Ritva curtains in my living room, dining room and family room and can't count the
 number of times I've used them for clients.
 They're 57" wide x 98" or 118" lengths, 100% cotton and have a pretty linen look.
 I take mine to a seamstress to have pleats put in to give them a more finished high end look.
 It's still a steal, as the panels are only $25/pair, isn't that crazy?!!  

#3 - Antifoni Work Lamp

 This little lamp is super functional, the arm and head are easily adjustable and 
it's great for reading, we have them on our nightstands in the bedroom. I love that
they coordinate with other styles for an eclectic mix and look and feel much more
high end than their $35 price tag.  

#4 - Viserum Frame, Arstid Lamp

  I helped my friend give her guest room a makeover, we used 24 (5"x7")  Viserum frames
with DIY squiggles to create this statement of grid artwork over the bed for $100.
We also gave the Arstid Wall Lamps a pretty update, tutorial courtesy of this clever blogger! 

 #5 - Rast Chest, Hovet Mirror

The versatile Rast Chest works perfectly in smaller spaces because of the depth,
 but the doesn't sacrifice width and height. The size and storage won me over when
 I did a makeover of our master bedroom for the One Room Challenge.  It's a
 popular piece to hack too, I chose to cover mine in faux ostrich and and add
vintage hardware, the tutorial is here
The mirror I used has been replaced by the Hovet Mirror which is almost
 exactly the same, again I loved the size which gave our small room added depth.    

Be sure and check out these talented friends' favs:
