IKEA- We wanted a built in home office but were on a budget. So IKEA was the solution! I put together the cabinets myself and became so good at it I was able to whip them together in 15
minutes, my son timed me! They are durable (it has held up for 7 years!) & it looks like we spent a ton when we did not.. The most time consuming part was the measuring and planning so that we had every inch available for storage. There are 3 office desks in the office and each desk make you feel like you have your own private area. It has held up for 7 years and if we ever got tired of it, we could easily change it. I have since changed the ceiling fan to a more modern one that fits the space better.
New Ballast in my kitchen light $20.00 VS. a whole new light fixture $120.00....SAVED us $100 PLUS+. If we had used Electrician it would have their charge per hour plus materials.
Shout out to Mike at the Electrical department of Home Depot. Took me step by step on how to change the ballast out. Even made me a drawing to take home. Told me to call if I came upon any questions! Love those Home Improvement stores, YOU CAN DIY!
I know it is not the newest most updated fixture but I like a LOT of light in my kitchen and have yet to find something that will make me spend the money of new fixtures. For now $20 is good!
