I am addicted to Target! I can go into a Target for a loaf of bread, and will come out with a cart full of goodies and a receipt for $250. I truly believe that time stands still inside of Target. There have been times when I could swear I’ve only been shopping for 30 minutes and three hours have passed.
Last week, on a grocery run, I did my usual quick walk down the end caps of the home goods department. I love finding items that I’ve been eyeing or cool linens on clearance that I can repurpose.
I flipped when I found a gorgeous medallion print lampshade on clearance for $9. Then, a few aisles down, I found a set of cloth napkins for $7, and a body pillow cover for $5. I knew exactly what I could do with these!
I’ve had a blah-beige lamp sitting on my end table for months (a year?) I got it for $5 at a local thrift store and had intended to paint it–someday. Well, after finding this lampshade, I knew I would be painting it Provence by Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. (DIY cost: $14, plus paint) LOVE!
I sewed the napkins together to make two beautiful throw pillow covers, and I used the body pillow cover to make 2 square and one rectangle throw pillow covers. (DIY Cost: $12 for 5 pillows, plus inserts.)
I can’t wait for my next Target trip!
