Today I wanted to share something that we set up at our house about a year ago that has been fantastic for us. It’s the IKEA RASKOG Utility Cart, which we have been using to house art supplies.  Initially, I ordered two as a nightstands for the boys’ room. It fit perfectly next to Ben’s bed, but just didn’t look right next to Max’s. So we took that one out and decided to try it out as an “art cart” instead.     Once… Read more »

I’ve been looking for something to put over our bed for years. Finally, I found, not one, but two options I am excited about.
