First we went over to the mainland in March and hit Ikea. Our poor little VW Golf was filled to the brim with goodies. We arrived at the BC Ferries terminal 4 minutes late and then had to wait 2 hours for the next sailing. I love living on an island, but getting on and off the island is a real pain in the ass. Anyways, I'll try not to go into a rant on that.
I wanted some shelving to store glass that would fit the alcove in my studio, and I couldn't be happier on how it turned out.
We spent a few evenings putting Ikea shelving together and in all honesty it went pretty well. No divorce papers being served!
I went with two "Besta" cabinets for the base (which I'll probably store glass sheets for fusing), and three "Expedit" bookcases for my glass rods for lampworking.
