I always seem to find the perfect items when I am not looking for them… and when I have the picture perfect idea of something I want… I can’t find it. A new TJmaxx opened just this month and it’s taken me a few weeks to drive to that side of town to check it out but I finally made it!
With my stair project coming to a halt I thought it would be a place to hit up to see if I could find any carpet runners. Well… I didn't find a carpet runner but what I did find was this A-mazing natural area rug!
Snagged it for $24.99! suckers…
The only issue with it is that there is no grip underneath so on our terracotta tiles it slides around. I tried carpet tape but that’s a no. I have seen DIY projects where people use clear caulk under rugs to add a grip so we are going to try it this weekend.
The next thing I found was a natural woven storage container. We seem to always have magazines, tractor manuals, & misc. papers, that pile up under the coffee table so I really wanted to find a container big enough to fit under it but also fit with our decor.
As I grabbed the container this old lady came up behind me staring at it in my hand. So I lingered for a moment to make sure there weren’t any others that I wanted and decided… it’s mine lady! I was here first.
Snagged it for $12.99!
When I said “Tractor manuals” I meant it… Oh to be a Farm Boys Wife.
Once I placed my new rug down I felt like the space didn’t seem right.
So I added a bushel basket that was just sitting in the kitchen and put it in the corner
by the door for umbrellas.
Then I had an old rake… farm rake… that I have been wanting to hang but wasn’t sure about where. We have a coat closet so we don’t need a coat hanger.
How about a hat hanger?
Maybe I should shop more often with out having any expectations?
Have a good weekend! I’ll be spending it at a farm equipment auction with my husband :)
