the 10 best extension tables

Whether you live in tight quarters, or just want to have the option of keeping your table smaller for everyday use, an extension table is what you need. They are so practical, with some even having the leaves stored right inside the table.

Here are 10 of my favourites.

a few of my favourite things at IKEA

Ikea seems to have a place in almost every home I visit. Whether it is leftover from college days, new purchases for the practical little items Ikea has, or all out Ikea decor, perhaps with a few 'Ikea Hacks'* involved. But then there are some that are anti Ikea, and that's OK too of course. Me? I'm an Ikea junkie! I actually have little furniture in my home that is Ikea, but I'm often at the store checking out new items, considering how that new chair, area rug or toss cushion might fit into my own home... or more importantly, for my clients' homes.

Today I was driving by Ikea from a morning appointment so I went in for my $1 coffee and a stroll around the store to see what's new. And there are lots of things! Here are a few I noticed and wanted to share with you.
