Shopping Loot

Remember how I posted about the $250 in Visa gift cards I got for Christmas? Here's all the things I got for updating my bedroom, dining room and office area:

Store Bought Items:
A white duvet cover + 2 pillow cases from Ikea
Gold spray paint
Pumpkin Orange spray paint
2 tablecloths from Target
2 lampshades from Target

A bedskirt from Bed Bath & Beyond


Smaller things - sandpaper, glue, rit dye (Home Depot/Ace Hardware/Michaels)
A set of Martha Stewart mirrors from Home Depot - I've got plans for these

Thrift Store Finds:
2 funky duvet covers (above)
2 pillows (above)
Chrome pillar candle holder
Chrome sea shell
Gold bird figurine
Red-Orange fabric
A mint julep cup

And... a dining table!

The table was only $75 (marked down from $275) and has a leaf extension to make it 7.5 ft long. The sad part is it doesn't fit in our dining area, (and believe me, I tried) but how could I pass it up? I'll have a house someday and it's the perfect table for dinner parties. I plan on stripping and staining it a warm brown. It's over at my brother's place right now waiting for attention.



All that and I only went $2 over my "budget" of $250. Not too shabby! Time to start some projects!

  2. Such great finds! I just moved to a new place, and I've been so inspired by your blog these last few months, that I've been wanting to update my own furniture and living space. Thank you, Monica!
