a few weeks ago, camden and i turned our dining room into a split office/dining room since our old office has been transformed into a nursery. even more than i was looking forward to some more storage and a place to put our office junk, i was looking forward to a good old ikea date night in ... just like the kind camden and i used to have when we were first married and all of our furniture was from ikea because it was all we could afford. we wore our pajamas, listened to four or five records, ate greasy chinese,  and built an ikea credenza. i was in charge of the hardware and instructions, camden was in charge of building it. it was honestly the perfect date night ... just what we needed. i'll post photos of our updated office/dining room soon!

  1. Sounds great! What is the name of the credenza - or is it an Ikea hack? It looks great and I happen to be looking for some more storage, too. :)

    Love, Nadine

  3. i love the ordinary simplistic beauty in this post. it captures the nights that you're going to want to remember when baby jude is all grown up or when you are fifty looking back on some of the good times.
    this is just so sweet and beautiful!

  10. That actually sounds like the perfect little date night to me too! I love IKEA, though my boyfriend isn't so keen on it (mainly because I always end up spending wayyy over budget hah). I've actually been lusting over that cabinet for a while now for our hallway - I can't wait to see your finished room!
    Have a lovely week!
