One of the first things we did upon arriving in Providence was drive 2 hours to New Haven, CT and...IKEA (cue birds chirpping and dings of sunshine). We've had our eye on a great bookcase for the past couple of years (there's no IKEA within reasonable distance to Orlando), and since we both needed desks, to IKEA we went.
I normally don't like IKEA light colored wood, but they've recently began carrying things in the dark, urban/modern look that we like. I was very excited to find a cheap desk in the said color. It was cheap and functional. I liked it.
So I was more than a bit peeved to get home and find that my desk was not the black/brown promised by the tags and numbers, but rather...white.
Since the desk is so cheap, and IKEA so far away, and gas prices so very high, we decided to keep the blasted white desks (and yes, the legs don't match because they were supposed to match the black/brown).
Damn you IKEA and your affordable solutions for better living packaged in neat and easy to carry flat boxes with numbers instead of color names!
