One Room Challenge Link Party: Week 3

In case you missed it, go check out Week One and Week Two because ORC Week 3 is here! 


Between last week and this week, I chose a few prints to use in the guest room redo.  I'm changing out the mats for something a little more updated. 



This week I did one of my favorite things- shop for accessories! My favorite spots for accessories are HomeGoods, Stein Mart, and Target. I have a rule for myself when it comes to buying accessories- must be under $20. Although, sometimes I do find myself getting a little something from Pottery Barn. Nobody's perfect! This shopping trip, however, I found most of my loot at HomeGoods and was able to stick to the $20 rule.


And a few things from Target 



I also found queen size white sheets and a queen size quilt from Stein Mart. Stein Mart is my favorite place to find inexpensive bedding. For instance, the quilt was $19.99 for a QUEEN. Yep. Don't even get me started when they have their red dot sales going on... you have to pull me out of there and wipe the drool from my chin.


I'm also considering using my Schumacher Zimba pillows in place of the black buffalo check... decisions, decisions.

Zimba?


Buffalo Check? 


At least I did make some decisions, and I got a few things off my to do list. I also picked fabric for the curtains. I'm going to use the leftover linen from my headboard project. 

 
Hopefully I can get the curtains finished and share them next week! See you then. (And as always, thank you Linda for hosting!)

Guest Room To Do:

make curtains, choose fabric
shop my house for furniture, etc.
patch holes
lamp makeover
shop my favorite go-to spots for accessories
choose artwork

I, too , love shopping for bargain accessories at Home Goods and Target and occasionally at the Salvation Army thrift shop. I love your mix of fabric for the pillows.

I've never looked for bedding at stein mart. I always forget they have linens. i'm usually too busy chasing my toddler away from all the breakables to even make it back that far.

I do not have a Steinmart near me ... I used to love it when I lived in Atlanta ... very jealous! I am a sucker for matellaise! xo

Love your $20 rule - I get myself into so much trouble at HomeGoods. You've got some great finds to work with!

Looks like a great haul for accessories! And the $19.99 quilt was a steal! I like the Zimba.

I also enjoy going to HomeGoods, Stein Mart, and Target - however, the closest ones to me are about two hours away! I do have a Marshall's that is only 30 minutes away so that is usually my "go-to" store unless I can convince the hubs that we need to take a day and go to Ft. Myers. I would love to find a queen size comforter for $19.99 - I'd grab that sucker before someone changed their mind. Can't wait to see the rest of the room.

Love all your accessories. That's a tough choice between the Zimba and the buffalo check. Both look beautiful! Wish I had a Stein Mart near me. What a great price!!
