GOING, GOING....

The other day while at Ikea, I received some really unfortunate news.
I couldn't wait to build a stylish wall of shelving that almost had the built in appeal, with the wide shelf space that so many of us design bloggers drool over when we see a Lack bookshelf well styled and/or painted to our hearts delight...


Well, Ikea's self proclaimed best seller...


One of their most design worthy and usable pieces...


 is being DISCONTINUED!!!!!!!!!!!!


So, if there is a project you have had in the back of your mind using one of these positively perfect bookshelves, go to your local ikea and scoop one up before they're gone forever!

NO, and here we almost went to Ikea a few weeks ago and decided not to. We live about 3 hours from the closest one. I might need to schedule a trip.

WHAT!!! Why on earth would they do that? Maybe someone should send them some links to the blog world! I've been dying to use one sometime in the future and I don't live anywhere near an ikea. This is just awful!

Oh no! That is really odd, right? Maybe they're coming out with an even better style?

I know! This is such a bummer right!? They told me its because they are making more room for their "expedit" line... and I was like "WHAT!"

Oh NO!!! I was planning on heading out to IKEA on Saturday but it was to buy some other things! Definitely going to add a couple of these to the list now! Thanks for the heads up :)

Did they say why? That really sucks and seems strange too, considering the popularity of the line.

I wish they wouldn't discontinue so many good things!! I still haven't been there yet but I am dying to go!

Oh no! It's so annoying when really good products are discontinued!

They must be high on the wrong thing! Absolutely outrageous!They are also discontinuing the Stylosand sofas. I owned the pull-out sofa and I was counting on buying new covers.

That just doesn't make sense! They better replace it with something equally versatile and well-loved.

That's crazy! I can't believe they would discontinue that! Thanks for the heads up!

I will never understand why companies choose to do this!

Ugh! Such a bummer. Thanks for the heads up. Did the folks at IKEA give any indication of when it would be discontinued exactly?

Really?? Maybe they're coming up with something bigger and brighter? Here's hoping! Thanks for the heads up!

I can't understand why they're doing it either!

The woman at my Ikea said that their computer's showed they were getting a final shipment of white lack bookcases this week, and then that was it. I think it depends on the stock at your own store.

I'm not sure if they're making room for something new- she said they're making more room for the expedit line, which, in my opinion, isn't better!
