We went there out of curiosity since we've never had one close before. When we left two hours later, Rob's wallet was lighter, and so was my heart. Ikea definitely solved one of my problems- or more specifically, my kitchen's.
This room has been begging for an island. It's been driving me crazy when I'm chopping something that has to go into a pan on the stove, to have to trek back and forth across the whole room to get from the counter where I'm chopping to the stove where I'm cooking.
All that changed though, after we brought this butcher block island home from Ikea.
So thank you, Ikea. You've solved my problems. Maybe you can't bring world peace, but you've sure brought peace to me.
