Get Thee To Marshalls!

I'm telling ya - run, don't walk!!

So many of you asked where I got the burlap container in my last post, that I thought I'd share my secret.

It was $7.99 at Marshalls.  I kid you not!

And I went back to a different Marshalls after that post and came home with this wicker basket with leather handles for only $7.99.  It replaces the tray above.

And guess what, there's more!  Lots, lots more.

I also got this little guy for $5.99

It sits on the same table as this new lamp, also from Marshalls.

And this cute little number was just on clearance for $10.

It grew wings and flew into my cart.

And this little tub works perfectly in the kids' bathroom to hold toilet paper.  It was only $9.99!

I should probably mention here that I did NOTHING to any of these pieces - they were already burlapped and stenciled!  Suh-WEET!

Lastly, I picked up this hu-mon-gous beveled mirror for a mere $35.  It's exactly what this room needed to finish the new lighter look.  You can't tell from the pic, but it has a faux wood look to it.

Here is how the mantle looked before with the old mirror:

I like it now so much better.

I also replaced the apothecary jar with some books, and aged the finial using sandpaper and brown wax.

Better, don't ya think?

Now hurry up and get to Marshalls.  Then come back and show me what ya got!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious day!

You been doing some serious shopping and getting some nice deals. I am trying to be good and stay out of stores like that - and it is hard.:D

Uh-oh, they're on to us, Kim! At those prices, it will be almost silly to make one of these items. It would probably cost more in supplies! You found some great deals and I do love how the finial looks aged up.

Those are some sweet finds!!! I love the burlap things. So cute! I am not buying anything yet until we get into our new house. I have no idea what I am doing in there yet so I am going to save up, but some of those things are awfully cute!!!

Good shopping! You are such a talented decorator! I like your new mirror. The finial looks really good distressed and I like the old books with it.
