But seriously. The mission, should you choose to accept it, is the constant quest to debrownify the living room. As frugally as possible. I have been on this mission for years....and by golly, it may actually be accomplished.
Allow me to set it up for you-You're in the Targ. You see 2 turquoise ottomans that are a little too flashy for this space so you don't pay attention to price. You later have remorse....internal dialogue goes something like this. "Hmm, those ottomans were turquoise with silver bases. They would debrown. But they were fancy pants ish. I'm pretty sure they were expensive anyway. Let's look online and torture ourselves." You type in turquoise ottoman. Those fancy ones are no where to be found on their website. But what's this? Missoni for Target online clearance? Internal dialogue happens: "Would it be chevron overload? Is there such a thing? What about all the other stripeyness happening in this room? That's a great price. Should i get one? Two? The one in black and white for the basement? We'll put this one in the basement if it doesn't work here so hold off on the black and white one."
3 days later, here she is in all her chevron aqua goodness. Consider this living room thoroughly debrownified.
Still hating the tv cabinet and the end tables, though. I said we were done debrowning, not tweaking.
Look at that adorable little face peeking behind the new ottoman.
Just waiting for her chance to join me.
And lest we forget the brownier before pillows and ottoman, here ya go. Methinks the old ottomans could become a redo project, but they need to be cushier as well as covered.
So what did this fabulous new find put me back??
826.69 from all modern?!?!
249.99 from west elm?!?
Nay. 33.99. Seriously. On sale from 99.99. How stupid am i for not buying the black and white one? Super stupid, because after stalking the website for days, there ain't nothing there.
What's your latest "one that got away" that you're kicking yourself over?
