IKEA FOR LIFE

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been helping my brother pull together his first apartment on a shoestring budget and it has been going really well!

After buying a few basics for his kitchen and doing some basic rearranging, I went shopping! We have TJ Maxx to thank for the Kilim pillows. They were only $16.99 each! The tan Ralph Lauren pillow in the middle was something like $25.00.

Brother really needed a TV stand and additional storage for DVDs, games and knickknacks and I hit the jackpot at Ikea. The shelves are just shy of 6′. They just look small in the photo because my brother is a giant human being.
Bookcases: Finnby $29.99 | TV Stand: Lack $14.99 | Lighting: Maglehult $14.99

I picked up a couple little tables (Lack $7.99) and a neat lamp (Hektar $54.99) at Ikea also.
Brother’s apartment is finally beginning to feel like a home!
