Ack! It has just been one of those weeks! We came home Sunday night to no Internet, but lucky for me I used all the pictures I took using Instagram for my blog post and I have a WordPress app so I can write posts from my iPhone. But it still wasn’t back last night which meant no pictures and no blog post. After being on the phone with the stupid nice Comcast people for hours yesterday, we finally got our Interwebz back up and running! But on to the real point of this post, I bought a bunch of stuff for not a lot of money! :)
I’ve been hitting up yard sales almost every weekend and stopping in at Goodwill on my lunch breaks occasionally and I’ve found a lot of great things for the house. Like this $2 canvas print for our master bathroom.
If you remember this post and mood board, then you know I want to be super earthy in the master bath and I think the tree will fit in nicely.
There’s also some new frames on the gallery wall (the silver one at the top and the big square at the bottom). Those were about $3 total and I love them. Especially the uniformity of the white frames with the mix of silver ones.
My stepdad randomly gave me this frame last week. It needs some glue because it’s kind of falling apart and I think I’m going to paint it a fun teal color. I’d like to string some twine across it and clothespin a few old pictures to it and use it on the mantle to add some color to pop against the brick.
Then of course there was the trip to Ikea this past weekend! I came home with 3 frames for the master bedroom, three for the master bath and three for the guest bedroom. The frames for the guest room are for programs from Broadway shows Jesse and I see together, so I already hung two with our programs from Wicked and The Lion King.
I also bought curtains for three rooms in the house at Ikea, but I dont have those ready yet! It takes forever to hem and hang rods!Hopefully I’ll be finishing that post up tomorrow or Friday! But I will give you a sneak peak…
Have you had any yard sale or thrift store luck lately? Any tricks or secrets you’d be willing to share to make it easier to dig through all that stuff? How about curtains? I tried hanging them last night and ended up with 3 holes in the wall because we dont own a stud finder…
