Like I always say, this house is a work in progress. Over the past month or so, I’ve been snapping up some fun decor items at TJ Maxx, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Home Goods.
To be more specific, I spotted 2 toss grey-ish/ purple-ish satiny pillows on clearance for $5 each (**happy dance**) at BBB along with a turquoise “Keep Calm and Carry On” canvas print for $20.
I picked up two sparkly silver cylinder vases for TJ Maxx about 2 months ago.
They were a total impulse buy. I couldn’t figure out where in the house to justify the purchase put them. Since I always keep it real here, I attempted them in the kitchen:
And this clearly looked weird. Into the closet they went until I fugured out what to do with them. A few months later, they resurfaced, and I put them on the gianormous shelf I am desperately trying to snazzify.
On the left side of this couch there used to be a huge pile of blankets for when it gets chilly down there. I saw a basket set at ZGallerie.com for $100 but I
am cheap wanted to see if I could find something else. I stumbled into Home Goods, and found this for $20!!
I topped it with a light and it looks like a nice little end table 😉 sneeky sneeky!
The bathroom down here gets neglected. I finally started to add some decorative touches to it. Before:
Woah! Sorry for the toilet shot. The room is very small, so it’s difficult to photograph.
I added a framed picture form TJ Maxx ($16) a novelty sign from the dollar store, a couple of fake plants I got in a basket at my bridal shower, and a pink hand towel from Big Lots $1.
Not finished, but definately improved. Do you know of an inexpensive way to jazz up a room? I wanna hear about it.
Challenge question is a little too dark for this blog so I’m skippin it today.
FYI: This is yet another snow day! It’s supposed to snow for the next 2 days too, so I’ll post pics of
Siberia our yard.
