Hobby Lobby & Ross finds

Hey guys! I haven't done in a post in awhile on the things I have bought over the last month or so. Here are some photos of all my finds and prices. I hope you enjoy!

I got these pictures from Ross, they were 14.99 each. I love them! 

The roo is from Ross it was 7.99, the next three things are from Hobby Lobby's clearance sale. The zebra vase was 7, the chippy red container was 7 and the finial was 3. Our Hobby Lobby didn't have too many things on clearance the times that I went, but  I am so glad I found the things I did!

 The fleur de lis book boxes were 5.99 and 7.99, I am loving book boxes I have so many now! :) Thanks Liz for getting me addicted!! While I was at Hobby Lobby I saw this container and these bushes of flowers, so I just bent the big stems at the end and shoved them in the container. It was around 15 dollars.

These were all from Ross, the tray was 5.99, napkin holder 2.99 and paper towel holder was 3.99! I just cant find anyone that can beat those prices! To say I love Ross is an understatement lol.

I have been looking for pillows for my couch for a long time, I have either found the ones I liked and they were too expensive or just haven't been happy with the ones I think I like and then don't look good on the couch. The two on the ends I got for 9.99 a piece at Ross ofcourse! The one in the middle was on clearance at Ross for 6.99! I love feather down pillows they fluff up so nicely!

Here is a picture of the other two pillows I already had on the couch. This room is a work in progress I dont know if you guys remember but whenever we first moved in I had a big mirror break? Well I did find a replacement for it I just haven't had a chance to replace it. I will soon! It seems like I work on a project for awhile and then jump to something else and the one I was working on doesn't get finished for awhile. But I really wanna get this room done its the only one downstairs that isn't finished and it's the first one you see! 

Well that's it for today guys. I will be back soon! Sorry I haven't been around much it is so hot here I hardly do anything. 
Have a great week!!

***Living Room Revealed***

Hey guys! Sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately, we have been so busy! We installed a doggy door a few weeks ago and found out that we have termites.. GRRRR. So, we had some companies come out and we got some quotes and picked one. We had to move everything in our garage to the center, mind you we still didn't have all of our stuff inside that needed to come in so that all got shoved everywhere inside. They are here right now, they have been drilling holes into the base of the house for two hours. No fun!! Anyways, enough with all of that. I wanted to share with you our main living room, this is where we spend most of our time. I would say that this is 90 percent finished, so I thought I would share.

Here is a before picture of what this room used to look like before.

***Living Room***
Here is what it looks like now.

Here is where my baker's rack sits that I showed you a few weeks ago. I have had these sticks for a long time, they were in a glass vase but one morning we woke up and I came downstairs to the vase tipped over and shattered everywhere. Truth is I never really liked the glass but just never changed it. So I headed to Ross and picked up this one for 14.99! Yay! Love it!

Ofcourse, I was drawn to the fleur de lis I also liked that it's metal so if it tips over again for some odd reason it wont break.

 I bought this picture last year and never really fell in love with it, but when I tried to go exchange it at Kirkland's it was on clearance for 25 dollars so that's all they would give me. So I decided to keep it and now I really like it in this room.

I pulled some of the green from the picture out and painted this accent wall along the fireplace. The color is from Valspar called Churchill Hotel Olive. I really like the color, I think I am going to paint my laundry room this color.

I love fleur de lis! :) 

I love my big clock it looks so pretty on this fireplace, don't mind Walter this is his favorite spot.

I purchase this floral arrangement from Kristen last year, it looks so pretty on the fireplace too.

These fireplace tools were my husband's great grandma's.

You will never guess what I did with these curtains. I had two standard panels from Target that I bought a few years ago that I had in my room. So all I did was cut them up the middle and hemmed the raw edge with the glue gun and wala! I now have 4 panels for the price of two. 

Here's a close up of the panels, below is Jackson's toy box. I bought this storage ottoman from Target it is functional and pretty!

Love these feather down pillows from Ross. They have the best deals on pillows!

My in laws gave us this coffee table that I cannot decide if I want to paint, stain or spray with oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I have seen this done on wood and it looks so pretty! I will be figuring that out soon. I am not a big fan of light wood.

Well that's all for today guys. I hope you enjoyed our living room. I will be back next week. 
Have a great weekend!!

***Guest Powder Room Reveal***

***Guest Powder Room***
Hey guys! I have finished the downstairs bathroom, so I had to share it with you all!
Here is a picture of what the bathroom looked like before I started.
Pretty, just not my style. I removed the wallpaper with fabric softener and hot water in a spray bottle. I sprayed it on and let it sit for about 10 minutes and scraped it off. It came off really easily, I was so glad!! 

Here are some after pictures. The bathroom is very small and narrow, so it's hard to get a good picture of all of it. I painted the bathroom with Cinncinatian Hotel Carl Tan from Valspar. I have this color throughout the house and I really like it. It's a really nice neutral.

You will not believe me when I say that I got this rug here, a runner and a 7' by 5 1/2' rug as a set from Ross for......wait for it..... 41.99!!!! Can you believe it! I was so excited, I have been looking for a rug for underneath my table for a long time. I have found ones that I liked but they were either too expensive or not big enough. I love the colors in it. Ross is my go to store as you all might know now. I just cannot find anywhere else that beats their deals. 

 I also found this trash can and the toilet cleaner below at Ross, the trash can was 14.99 and paisley toilet cleaner was 9.99. I love them!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed seeing my guest bathroom. I am still working on getting things done around here. I have been painting a ton! I hope you all have a great rest of your week and weekend!
See you soon!!
