As you will discover in my post on Monday, I am somewhat obsessed with Ikea. If I wasn’t completely immersed in renovating our website, it could be a problem! By the way, make sure to take one last look at the current website, because in a week or so we are going to throw a party to celebrate a brand new look – yay!
Speaking of parties… I love to have gatherings at my house. Chances are if its Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter or time for a graduation party, we are celebrating it my house. Because of that, one thing that I’m always on the outlook for is a way to add extra seating. I finally got my cocktail area, but I had one blank wall that I was debating on what to do with, when I remembered these amazing wooden fold-up chairs at Ikea with… get this… a HOLE in the back for hanging on a wall. Genius I tell you, simply genius.
These chairs are perfect to grab for guests during a party and look great hanging on the wall. Plus, beside’s that clever hole, there is something else I love about them just as much – they are (hold onto your pants) only $14.99 ea. Gotta love that! I picked up two and because the wall hooks at Ikea were sold out, I bought a pair at Home Depot on my way home that I actually like better. Once I got my tools together, it took me about 10 minutes to anchor the hooks into the drywall and done! The only bad thing was the tag left behind a bit of residue, but goo-off cleaned it right up!
Recently, Ashley and I had a baby shower for about 25 people and it was so much fun to reach to the wall and grab an extra chair for a guest. So stylish, yet totally functional; everyone loved them! xoxox Amy
