I’ll start with letting you know, this little project would’ve been cheaper, had we made the shelves ourselves. That was our (my husband’s) intention.
We were at Ikea back in the spring and I really wanted these Ribba Ledges.
I told my husband how cute they would be for books and cars. I told him I wanted 2 for each kid. To which he responded “No way, look at how expensive that would be. I can make those way cheaper, and we already have the white paint”.
True. But I know that well meaning man. I knew by his tone that these shelves weren’t getting made.
Nevertheless, I agreed, like a good wife should. Well, I made a deal really. I think we may have even shook on it. I told him that if the shelves weren’t built by the next time we came to Ikea that I was going to buy them.
I won.. sort of.. I mean I got the shelves, but sure paid a lot more than I wanted to.
We got these two long ones for the boy, then put a small one for books in my oldest daughter’s room.
