The Best Budget Friendly Hardware!

Am I the last person on earth to know about Martha Stewarts hardware collection at Home Depot?  I got wind of it last week and was FLOORED by how good it is… and cheap! At $4 a knob, you can afford to give your kitchen or bath vanity a fun little makeover! I am so happy she offered an antique brass and polished nickel– the two finishes we use almost exclusively!  I paired my favorite selections up below:

Pair 1. knob // pull  Pair 2. knob // pull  Pair 3. latch // pull  Pair 4. knob // pull  Pair 5. knob // pull   Pair 6. knob // pull

And also, randomly I came across this chair on Walmart of all places, and was in SHOCK. I had just quoted a chair almost identical to this from Mr. Brown for over $1,200 (right) and the Walmart version (left) is $394– and also comes in black.  CRAZY good find. I am obsessed with this chair for a desk or dining.

Another charming budget find, this 30″ laurel leaf mirror from Pier 1 for $75!

Just a few fun budget finds for your Wednesday! Have a good day everyone!

 

 



Rattan Daybed: High and Low

The other day I came home and saw on the cover of my latest Grandin Road catalog a rattan piece that looked A LOT like the Serena & Lily daybed that has been so popular as of late. I checked and it was $399!? I then noted that it was a bench instead of a daybed, which actually makes it MUCH easier to work into a space as not everyone has space for a daybed or wants to to use one in a guest room.  What a great deal!  It would make a great entryway piece or for the foot of a bed (and it comes in black too!)

Target’s latest line with Safavieh has me yelping “That’s from Target?!” left and right these days.

IKEA! I’m serious!

I had to look twice to believe my eyes (especially the kitchen and bath!) Pretty awesome display of what you can do when you mix lots of budget items with a few well placed higher end ones. Also, who doesn’t love a good Ikea hack?? Here are a collection of great ideas of how to dress up simple pieces from the big box store and make them into statements.  I did a good one in my bedroom- but you’ll have to wait for the book to see (sorry!)
