Mimi and I hit up some garage sales on Saturday morning and scored a couple of great deals. First off is this Pottery Barn kids crib set:
Isn't it cute? It's well made and in great shape. The bumpers were marked at $15, the crib skirt at $6 and the sheets were $1 each but while I was looking at them I overheard the owner tell her friend that they better start slashing prices. I asked her about the price of the set and she told me to make her an offer so I asked if she'd take $15 for the lot and she said yes. (I just checked and Pottery Barn sells these sets for about $170 new--score!) I especially like the embroidered accents on the skirt and bumpers.
The other thing I bought was this bolt of designer fabric.
I read a local interior designer's blog and when I saw that she was having a tag sale on Saturday I wanted to check it out. It took Mimi and I longer than I wanted to get out of the house (as usual) and so when I arrived the sale was already pretty picked over. But then I saw this bolt of fabric and it felt like it had been set aside just for me. The colors are exactly what I was trying to find for a window treatment in our living room. There are 7 yards of fabric and I paid $30 total for it. So it wasn't dirt cheap but it was still a good deal.
Now the big question is what type of window treatment should I do? Curtains? Valances? I really have no idea.
What do you think would look best?
