IKEA LAGOM Workshop #2

I seriously hate getting up in the mornings ask anyone who knows me, but this Sunday I was up and on the road to Belfast before 6 AM! I get weirdly excited to go to IKEA haha

It was time for another Live LAGOM Workshop at IKEA Belfast this time with the focus being on saving energy, keeping homes cosy and trying our hand at making Draft excluders.

I was able to bring along two of my flatmates Josh and Amber to the workshop which was fun! They were completely new to the project other than listening to me boring them about it so it was good for them to see what i actually do. On arrival, we were able to enter through the co-worker entrance (check me out) and taken to a super nice room where the workshop would take place.

After watching a short video and a quick brief and I was literally able to tick something off my bucket list..Going to the showroom..when the store is closed.. and decorate one of the rooms! SO COOL (or sad)  but how cosy does this look,

In my living room, there is a constant wind flowing through under the door so it’s great having something to keep the heat in with this cold weather. I  had never ever even attempted to sew before and it was actually really fun and relaxing espicially with all the cool fabrics and supplies we were provided (yep I even repaired a button on my shirt myself since)

My Draft excluder turned out ok, it won’t be going into mass production anytime soon but at least it works16754235_10209982456269837_816872049_n
