Bargain Hunting, Decor

Shopping at Crate & Barrel

When I swung by Kirklands to pick up my new garden stool, Crate & Barrel was just across the street.  I almost never shop there (I love their stuff, but it can get expensive fast), but decided that since I was in the neighborhood, I might as well do a little window shopping.

Almost immediately, I spotted this gorgeous basket on clearance – originally $60, but on sale for $12.95.  I wound up carrying it through the rest of the store.

I have always had a thing for yellow.  This couch is so pretty when paired with that white shag rug (I can almost feel it under my feet).

These table trunks are out of my price range, but totally my style.

It took a lot of self restraint to not buy a bunch of these kitchen utensils.  Next time, CB.  Next time.

And finally, this table.  Oh, the beauty of this work table in person.  It’s made with reclaimed telephone poles.  Stunning.

I got through the rest of the store with only the basket and a set of small chrome picture frames (more on those when I’m done with the project).  I knew just where to put it.  At $12.95, it gives my powder room just a touch of style.

    I absolutely have to stop at Crate & Barrel whenever I'm close by. I love to get fresh ideas. Admittedly most of the stuff there is out of my price range but they definitely know good quality. I love this basket by the toilet idea as well. So much more stylish than simply hiding the paper under the sink.
