I really would have called it a day but I was bored and napping wasn’t really in the cards. So I whipped out some measuring tape and started taking down measurements for everything that needed a covering of some sort. Then I realized that I needed a snapshot of the furniture to do a colour comparison. Yes, I am nuts in that sense. So PDA and camera phone came in handy…REALLY handy.
My shopping list:
- Another table lamp
- Flowers (I replaced with potpourri for practical reasons)
- Laundry basket
- Queen-sized quilt set
- Queen-sized fitted sheet + two pillowcases (same colour)
- Two pillows
- One queen-sized quilt
- Placemats for two bedside tables, dressing table and display top
It was strange, going shopping in IKEA alone when almost everyone there is part of a couple or a family. That aside, it really is a bad idea because if you end up buying a ton of stuff like me, lugging it to the car is a feat. =.= That aside, I am well within my budget and have extra to spend for the workroom! Need to get a computer table and if possible, a proper chair.
And a lot of people do have a bad habit of staring.
I got stared at while buying placemats because I had whipped out my PDA to look at measurements. Another time was when I was buying the linen – I needed to see if the colours I picked complimented each other so I had taken the quilt set and placed it right next to the sample fitted sheet…every single one of them. Then at the marketplace, I got stared at again! All because I flipped out my phone to take pictures of the computer table that I was thinking of getting. Hai.
Anyway, by the time I got home and got everything set up (the curtains needed hemming and even then I did a botched job!), it was close to midnight. Heh. Can’t believe I just spent an entire day tinkering around with this bridal room of mine.
I think I’ll go knock out now. Soooo tireddd…..
