New dining lamp

Hello there!

How good is this lamp from IKEA which makes it possible to have a lamp over the couch / dining table without attaching it to the ceiling. It gives the most cosy feeling ever and the lamp shade we chose to it goes so well with the rest of the dining table and chairs. In love!

Sunday

Woke up at 8am today, the longest sleep-in I had in a while. It’s been a long week at work, and things constantly felt like it were going against me. So I was very much happy to close up on Saturday and start my weekend.

After work I went home and changed into something nicer, and we drove to a friend’s place for dinner. They served us with lamb cutlets, roast potato’s and tzatziki and cheese and mango ice cream for dessert. Around 12am I was so tired and we drove back home. Yet I wasn’t asleep until probably 2am with a mind still being awake even though the body was exhausted.

Lazy Sunday morning started with coffee and watching the morning TV in the couch. Later on we went to Ikea to spend our 60$ voucher that was about to expire and eat lunch (you can see how much we Swedish people like our sauce) . Really just got rather unexciting things like a new frying pan and lunch boxes..

For dinner we made bibimbap, I had marinated tofu with mine and Alex cooked up a scotch fillet. It was so yummy. Such a simple dinner but completely satisfying. Now it’s 9.21 and I will make my move to the bed as the tired nut I am.

Goodnight x

Last weekend we took on a couple of projects. The terracotta pot was beautiful as it was, but didn’t really go well with the rest of the interior so decided to paint it in a vivid white. The coffee table we had already painted before in a solid black, but we found this stain paint on Ikea, so decided to get rid of the old paint and re-do it. It really made the look of the table feel more alive as you can see the wooden features. And what is a Ikea visit without coming home with a new piece of furniture?…

Absolutely in love. So robust. So dark. And the wine rack fitted so that’s what’s most important.
