We made a pilgrimage to IKEA today. We had promised my Mom we would pick her up a Billy bookcase for her bedroom. (Thanks for the excuse Mom!) But we also wanted to check out their winter sale. As always, from the Showroom to the Cafe to the Marketplace, we had a great time. (Sorry Roo!) It had been quite awhile since we were at the Stoughton store and some areas had been rearranged. But we managed to find everything we were looking for. At one point we couldn’t find the cabinets and sinks for bathrooms display area and were briefly alarmed that we had missed our opportunity to purchase the Hollviken sink we always pine for. But a quick consultation with one of the staff members reassured us that the sink is still in the pipeline (as it were!). And because they said a couple of new collections of cabinets (currently available only in the U.K.) would soon be arriving, we once again resisted the sink. We just wish the Hollviken could fit on Akurum kitchen cabinet bases. That would give us many more style options. I think Chuck and I need to scour the internet for some relevant hacks and put our thinking caps on about the problem. Any suggestions?
