Negative effect

We’ve finally sorted out replacing the red drawers in the Ikea unit our TV sits on.  They were the only red item left in the room, and it was really getting on my nerves!

We nipped to Ikea (after the aborted attempt last bank holiday), and I got to try Krispy Kreme for the first time.  It’s amazing, but I digress.

We picked up a few picture frames, and then started doing mental arithmetic, and put them all back again.  We’re going to go in a month or two when we don’t have quite so much going on!  We did also try the shop near to it, HomeSense, which was recommended by a neighbour, but they didn’t have a wide range of white frames, and we’re being quite particular.

They did, however, have an amazing range of mirrors, and we nearly bought a coat peg with different knobs in bright colours (before realising we had nowhere to put it), and a half corkboard/half chalkboard thing for the kitchen (but it was cream, not white).  I’d definitely go back there!

Anyway, we’ve swapped the drawers out, and it looks a bit like a washed out version of the red, like a photo negative!  It works with the room though, doesn’t clash like the red, and will look even better if we ever get these [insert expletive] frames in!

    • Don’t encourage me, it wouldn’t take much! They were amazing though, I cant wait to go back! I think the guy serving us was scared by the wonder in my eyes and my indecision.

    • Hi Brian, as far as I know Ikea have stopped making them in red. I’d just say to set up an alert on eBay and you may get lucky and get some second hand. Good luck!
