Let me add to that one more item…

Okay, I found another thing I must add to my Christmas wish list… so I lied, the Dyson is not the only thing I want/need… I’m a girl, ok! I’m allowed to change my mind!

Here it is:


It’s the Ikea Trollsta Sideboard. It would be perfect in our living room to house all of our media equipment. Right now we have a tall bookcase from West Elm that is housing all of media stuff (our flat screen is mounted above the fireplace). I love the bookcase but after we bought it, we realized we really needed something that was meant to conceal all the lovely wires, controls, remotes, etc. that come with electronics. I’ve been looking for just the right piece of furniture for that wall, and has been a bit challenging to find one that is not too traditional, too country, too tuscan-y, too low, you get the picture. Our living room is contemporary/transitional, so I wanted to find something with the right feel and look and functionality. Then I happened across this lovely sideboard on Ikea’s website. I think it is new from them. Best of all, there are cord outlets in the back and 2 adjustable shelves. And you can’t beat $349! I love that it does not look like a “media cabinet”.
