Home Decor Wish List

We are still settling in from the move (after a busy week before my sister’s wedding and a week where both of us got sick), I am finally starting to hang some things on the walls (okay just two pieces, but better than nothing)! As we start to organize and I’ve become more acquainted with the space and feel of our apartment, I have started making a huge wish list in my mind of what I’d like to add to our new home. But just like with fashion, home decor and furniture adds up quickly, so I like to try my best to decorate based on a budget and thrift at Goodwill or antique malls when I can. Some of my other favorite places to shop for home decor while staying on a budget are Home Goods, TJMaxx, Kohl’s, CB2, HauteLook and of course, good old IKEA!

I would LOVE to see the above items in our apartment sometime soon though! Most of these pieces are pretty affordable at least.

grandma's tv stand


If you follow me on Instagram, you  might have seen that I finally spray painted my grandma’s old TV stand on Saturday. It is a special gem from the 70s and I am excited to have it because it will be a great way to remember her every day! She used it as a buffet/side table and we plan to do the same. Can’t wait to bring it into the apartment soon!

    I love your grandma’s piece–it’s always so much more special when pieces have meaning behind them!

    Im love your new blog design! Grandma’s cabinet is super pretty. I am hoping for a new entertainment center/end tables soon. And a dining table. Out of the three homes I’ve bought, none have had space for a dining table! Or even a kitchen table. Grrr.

    Bummer you and the boy got sick! I’m dreading catching the first fall bug that’s going around- or at least it’s going around my office, where people are dropping like flies!

    Love the decor pieces you’ve chosen. Your apartment is going to look incredible; can’t wait to see the finished product!

    I am the same way! I usually have a strict budget, so I end up at Goodwills or save and dig, buy the items and repaint them or decorate them differently. It turns out amazing and I spend less than $20, although these decoration pieces are beautiful.
