This haul is cumulative over the past several months as I have slowly been trying to get everything ready for my apartment next year. I’m going for a Kate Spade theme with white and gold with little touches of black and pink. I have a lot of ideas for DIY projects and don’t plan on getting everything until after move-in. Just things like curtains and headboards or whatnot. Anyways I pretty much have been raiding Home Goods, Kirklands, and TJ Maxx to find great deals.
This is kind of an overview pic (your girls finally taking her own pics!). I know nothing of photography but hopefully I’ll get better with time and practice!
I think I got these in April? White cable knit throw pillow and a white pearl beaded pillow. The cable knit is DKNY but the pearl didn’t come with a tag on it. I think I paid less than $20 for each.
Flash isn’t so great because I snapped these real quick before work this morning on my phone. I got a new set of white sheets from Isaac Mizrahi, two white plush throws from Thiro, and a white and gold burlap print throw whose brand I don’t remember. Each of the pillows was <$20 and the sheets were $25.
My mom found this cute print that fit perfectly and these fleur-de-lis tumblers when we went out a couple weeks ago. The cups were on a clearance rack for $3 and the print was $20.
We stopped by Bed, Bath & Beyond for a bit to pick up a small steamer and some more hangers. They were (and maybe still are) having a 20% off discount for college purchases. Perfect timing to pull out those school checklists and start picking up some of those dorm essentials!
As for crafts, we hit Michael’s and Walmart. I got big wooden letters, fake flowers, and these cute print cupcake liners. From Walmart I just picked up some white, gold, and pink spraypaint.
Ignore my dog’s bed in the background.
I plan on spray painting the fake flowers pink and using them in a project, as well as painting some old white plates I found with gold stripes (a la Kate Spade), and a few other projects. Fingers crossed they turn out!
Input time: I got the letters but I’m not quite sure yet if I just want to paint them, glitter them, glue pretty beads and jewels to, or glue some pretty flowers to. Any suggestions?
