Once again I ventured into the stores when I should have stayed at home! But nothing feels quite as good as a deal when you're talking home decorating, or any other shopping for that matter!
First I found these two cute bolsters for my beige Adirondack chairs! They are a deep turquoise and have a lattice like beige and white design. A little different than I might normally pick, but what the heck? It will be a little "pop" in my somewhat browny beige backyard.
Next it was off to my local Habitat for Humanity Restore outlet. First, right inside the door, I found this sweet baby...
What is it you say? Well...my first thought was that it was a chicken feeder. It's galvanised tin and looks pretty "eclectic" and I like it! And I liked the price...$5.00! Whaaat you say? Oh I said it...$5.00! Well a little more investigation and I found out that it is actually a chicken waterer...is that right? Waterer? Well it is used to hold water for the chickens:) So I was pretty close..but no cigar. After perusing the aisles a little bit to see if there is anything else I liked I came across a few windows and doors that I liked for future projects,
and then I came to the lighting aisle. What's that you say? How many lights can such a small home actually use? I know...and I told myself that...over and over again, but I just didn't listen..again.
They had Hampton Bay fixtures at the Restore that match my chandelier in my bedroom, but the burnished brown..not the white that I have. Now I know what you're thinking..they aren't the right colour. Well I thought about that..and you know you can paint pretty much anything...but I'm really not sure where I would put them first of all, and secondly...I may just give them away if someone could use them and I can't. But that's a decision I'll make later. Now back to the deal. Hampton Bay Heritage Wall Sconce..$20.00. Well you know what happened next. Correct! I had to buy two...just in case there was some place that I found to hang them and I actually needed a pair. But I wasn't done yet. A Hampton Bay Chandelier $20.00. Again...no where to put it....yet. But maybe a little girls room..or a bathroom...who knows?
So again I ask "When is a deal not a deal?" If you don't need it? I just can't accept that. I was shopping like it was my job! Ahhh, a girl can dream can't she?
