City of Links #46

Welcome to City of Links, Link Party #46. Well, snow has officially arrived over here. Have my snow boots and everything. It is layers time. I am terrified about driving in the snow, it hasn't happened yet but it is coming soon. It doesn't help that I am going to have to do my test in the snow soon. YIKES! I live in Canada so I should get used to driving in the snow lol. Its too cold to be doing any more projects on the balcony anymore so thank goodness my last one finished in time. How was your week? Lets see what you have been up to this week! I wanna see! Link, Share and Check out these features!

I bought the IKEA PYSSLINGAR toy trunk. You saw my bookcase transformation from bookcase to custom closet for my son. Well at the bottom I needed a toy box for him and found the IKEA PYSSLINGAR to fit what I needed. It check off the all the things I was looking for which was 1. Affordability (I don't want to spend too much on it) 2. It was big enough to fit his toys (can't have something small then it would be a pointless buy) and lastly, 3. It had to go with the style of my transformation. I figured out that I was going for the deep browns, light beige, light brown and blue colour schemes. This added the pop of blue that I was looking for.

IKEA HACK: Spice Rack to TV Stand

ikea hack spice rack to tv stand

I love my new TV stand. It was easy to make and construct because I am using a IKEA spice rack. I have seen this spice rack as a book shelf, nail polish holder and more. What I used mine for is to hold my TV. I originally sketched my idea for what I wanted and soon notice that the spice rack fit what I was looking for. I need space for my electronics underneath my TV because it was not working out well with the devices behind or beside the TV. It was looking very unorganized. I thought it would be nice to have two spice racks next to each other and the devices underneath but the length would have been way to long for the top of my dresser. Although that threw off my plan a bit, having two spice racks worked out better.

I am so happy you came by! It is getting cold over here. No longer wearing my fall jackets it is full on winter coats over here. It started to snow yesterday so now I am making sure I got all my winter gear out and ready. I spent my week on my balcony working on up coming projects.
