I used a variety of finds and old favorites on the mantel. I found this neat architectural gate print at HomeGoods with mom when I was in Houston a couple months back. It was a real steal! I had been wondering where to put it and I really like it here. I incorporated a bright vase from Anthropologie and a fabric letter, old clock and Gothic inspired candle holder.
I really like how this is turning out. I found this cool rose window mirror at Hobby Lobby for just $35 and the neat butterfly framed prints at HomeGoods in Houston for just $25 each. The day after I got them I saw them on One Kings Lane for $135 each on sale... I don't think so!
DINING ROOM CURTAINS AND CRAZY DEAL SHADE
I was not too thrilled with these curtains at first but once I put the butterfly prints and rose window mirror on the adjacent wall they really tied together. I found these at World Market and the shade only cost me $1 from Overstock.com! That's right... $1. I joined their O club a while back since I knew we would be getting deals for the house there and so I get 5% back on everything and you can use it immediately once the other purchases ship. So it was originally $17 and I had over $15 in club credits so it really only cost me $1!
