If you have read my blog for any time at all you know I prefer to decorate on a budget and thrive on finding that fantastic bargain. I like having nice things in our home but I have found so much of the expensive decor can be duplicated or purchased for a lot less money. That being said I want to show you what I spent to put together the look in my previous post. Here's the breakdown.
The table is a copy of a $1295 Restoration Hardware one. As I mentioned in my previous post I found the identical table at Roomstore for $379.
The mirror I found at Anthropologie at 70% off. I have seen this same mirror priced at $300 other places. I paid $62.00.
Wisteria had some gorgeous prints in a mirrored frame for $150 each. I loved them but I knew I could find something I liked as well for a lot less. Last year I found similar prints in mirrored frames on clearance at Target. I paid $9.00 each for my version of Wisteria's art.
The little black sconce was purchased at a consignment shop for $5.00 and the Quimper style plate at a garage sale for $1.00.
During my search for the table I stopped at Bassett Furniture and purchased the green glass lamp for $10.00
from the clearance room. This lamp had an original price tag of $140.
The metal urn was painted bright gold when I found it in a junk shop for $6.00. A little paint and glaze solved that problem. The urn was filled with seashells purchased at a garage sale for $2.00. There must have been 200 shells or more in the bag. The coral, star fish and pink shell I have owned for years.
I Love this plaster architectural piece and it was $8.00 from the same junk store that had the urn. I also got the large basket there for $5.00 and the metal gym basket for $10. The two wine bottles and large apothecary bottle I have had for years. I am sure I paid less than $10 each for them. The best buy of all were the two antique clay pots purchased locally at an on-line auction. My cost for both pots was $3.00!!
Total cost for all accessories, including wall and tabletop = $150! See why I love hunting for bargains?
*Thanks for the advise on painting the vent. I had wanted it painted but hubby was afraid the paint would chip off the metal. With so many of you backing me up he caved in!
Thanks for stopping by.
