I know that yesterday I said I would wait until today to pull the trigger on this rug, but I seriously couldn’t stop thinking about it. So during my lunch break I hopped on over to Tar-jay and grabbed the rug and a Snapple and was on my way [because you can never just buy one thing at Target, am I right?] I raced home and laid it out and gave it the ol’ bare foot test. It definitely passed with flying colors, no surprise there!
I just love how it really pulled the living room together. Since our living room and dining room share the same space, it really helps to make the living room feel more intimate and cozy.
So I usually try not to make instant purchases like this one. I wait a while and if I’m still thinking about it and regretting not getting it, I take the plunge [knowing I can always return it of course]. I mean I waited a day. That counts right?
Sometimes when I wait long enough, something I’ve been drooling over goes on sale. Like that cute little coral knit pouf you see in front of the wing back chair. I originally posted about it what back when, but didn’t really want to pay $80 for it. Well weeks went by and I always saw it still at full price [I go to Target about 4 times a week okay?] and then they disappeared along with 90% of the remaining Privet Home collection. I had a feeling that would happen, I mean why wouldn’t the masses gobble these little coral gems up? So I figured it wasn’t meant to be. They still had them online and they were marked down a little, but with shipping it wasn’t that great of a deal.
Then Monday night Derek and I made a random Target run to a location we hadn’t been to yet. It’s in a not so nice area of town, but it’s technically the closest location so we gave it a go. Well guess what? They had TONS of Privet Home items. Items I had only seen online. Including my coral poufs. They weren’t $80, or even $55.99.. they were $30! What?
Needless to say I squealed and marched around the store with my new pouf like it was a bag of a million dollars. I really am very dramatic when it comes to finding things I’ve loved on sale. It’s such a rush Sometimes patience really does pay off!
We’re obsessed. It doubles as an ottoman and extra seating for whenever we decide our place is presentable enough to have people over. Oh when will that be? So many projects, so little time. Since it’s about 104F everyday here, the only thing to do is stay inside so this weekend I hope to tackle a lot of projects, one big one being another button tufted headboard. Crossing my fingers Joann’s has enough button forms this time. What are you guys up to this weekend?
