First of all Happy Easter to everyone.....although you may be reading this tomorrow :)
Taking a break with part 2 of my thoughts on putting together the ORC......because I got another little challenge I had to tackle last week.
My nephew just got an apartment [in Atlanta] after working in Chicago for a year so my sister and I were hired [I use that term very lightly of course] to put his room together quickly. I'm thinking payment will be a nice dinner out somewhere.....hint...hint.
The thing is we could have gone to Ikea and gotten everything but it is time for him to step it up and get some furniture he can keep. Plus putting Ikea furniture together will make you go crazy.
I don't love anyone that much. Sorry Tay.
We went over to see it last Sunday [yes...a week ago].
It was pretty much a mess as someone had just moved out.
He had left some things behind and in my grownup mind that means you don't want them right?
When we went back Thursday to clean we apparently threw away a rug in the bathroom [which you can see in the corner] cause it looked skanky to me.
Had to go dig that sucker out of the trash today.
I helped my sister clean the room....you know wipe down the shutters and moulding....but she did the dirty work and cleaned the bathroom. She had on her gloves and a hazmat suit....
Then we decided to hit some stores.
I dug around in my fabric closet and came up with these.....Sometimes it's good to be a hoarder right?
We found this bed at World Market and thought it was a great deal for the price.
It was on sale and the color was perfect.
They did not have one at the store next to me so we couldn't get it that day.
We went to Target and got all the sheets, shower curtain, towels and decided to go get the bed the next day....
That night I got on the internet to look for some things that might work in the room....
Found this at West Elm and loved it. On sale and with my discount...still over 600.00. We were ready to buy but they did not have one at the store.
Loved this rug from West Elm....
And this desk....
I sent these pictures to my sister and said [as an after thought].....hey call the Pottery Barn outlet [about 50 minutes away] tomorrow morning to see if they might have one of those dressers. In case you don't know Pottery Barn and West Elm are owned by Williams and Sonoma which means they carry merchandise from both stores.
WELL GUESS WHAT?????
She called me the next morning at 10:00 screaming "yes they did have one and it was 349.00!!! "
So off we went.
You are going to have to wait until part 2 of this post to get a glimpse of how we made out!
You won't believe it.....my sisters eyes rolled back in her head and I had to pull her back down to earth. She wanted to buy everything she saw :)
If you follow me on Instagram [sherryhdesigns] then you know some of the incredible bargains we found....
