Finders Keepers.

You know the drill...

This cute little lamp caught my eye as I was walking through TJ Maxx. (Yes, I semi-live in that store.) At only $29.99 a pop, it's an inexpensive way to add some texture and sparkle to your room.

I actually bought the desk above for a project I'm currently working on. I know some people who are Ikea snobs, but honestly, I love the store. I don't recommend buying everything from Ikea, but when it's mixed and matched with more expensive pieces, it looks flawless. At only $69, I would have a hard time finding a cheaper desk option at a thrift store! (P.S. It looks fantastic in the room I'm currently designing. I'll share pictures when it's all done.)

I also loved this table and chair set from Ikea. I really wanted to use those chairs in another design I'm working on, but at $99 a chair, they were over budget. Cue sad music.

Moving on to another favorite store of mine, Cost Plus World Market, this rustic meets modern table had me at hello. This picture doesn't even do it justice. It's gorgeous. I'm a sucker for rustic woods in modern settings if you haven't been able to tell. And the price? Oh, so nice. Love that store!

And lastly, good ol' Hobby Lobby. These stools were a steal at $14 each. If I had needed bar stools, they would have come home with me for sure. Sometimes it's so dang hard to leave a good deal behind!

I'm guessing you already know based on these posts, but I go shopping a lot. A lot, a lot. I try to stay on top of what's in the market so I can make my designs as affordable as possible. If you're looking for a specific item to go in your home, I'm happy to keep an eye out wherever I go. Email me for more information!
