IKEA 2015 Catalog- Five Favorites!

IKEA's new catalog for 2015 is here!  As a DIY-er, I love the flexibility of many of IKEA's pieces and you cannot beat the price.  Last week, I did a little IKEA hack on their floating shelves (one of my fav staples from them!) 

I will be adding more home inspiration type posts to A Bubbly Life over the next few months- because that is what I am obsessing over right now.
We are currently remodeling our home- a mess of dust, plaster, hanging wires and all that fun stuff...   I would love any and all advice and tips!

Back to IKEA- if you have not had time to check out the new 2015 IKEA catalog, here are some of my favorites!

(P.S. this post in no way affiliated or sponsored by IKEA, just a fan!) 

The first pick has to be pink, right? ;) A light pink drawers/nightstand set- would be a cute addition to a little girl's room.


Although I tend to be shy with bright colors in the home- I love this pop of green for a coat stand!
A mirror that doubles as a jewelry hanger.  My DIY sense is tingling- blue/white painted stripes on the wood for a beachy, coastal look?  Or spray painted gold for a more modern look?
 
I typically do not buy this type of furniture at IKEA.  I like to find great quality wood pieces via Craigslist/thrift store and fix them up.  However, the lines and shapes of the these nesting tables are so very cool.  
Black and white dining set- I am buying a couple of these plates.  I will just insist that they are necessary for a future blog post...


Have you checked out the new IKEA catalog yet?  What are your favs?

Fab Friday Link Love!


I love this color palette of latte bowls from Anthropologie.  I am putting some open shelves in our kitchen and these would be great eye candy and useful for mise en place.

Edible gold popsicle gemstone rings. I die.

A bucket full of flowers. Beautiful.

"Get in my belly"- these diy ice cream cone wrappers are so cute!

DIY Ikea Hack Floating Shelves Color Block

A few months back, when baby C was still in the womb, I ordered some gold metallic brass contact paper for a diy project I had in mind.  I ended up dumping the project idea-  because hormones. But I still had some lovely contact paper for the future.  DIY supplies never go unused long around here :)

And in came these floating shelves from IKEA:



Don't you love floating shelves? I do!

I am not a stylist- my shelf styling is called "Laurel puts pretty things she likes on a shelf"  It almost looks perfect but:



I thought the shelves could use a pop of color- and this is where the contact paper came in:




Easy!  I forgot to take pictures, but the instructions are measure the shelf, cut the measurement and stick on! Pretty easy!
