I have been wanting to decorate the (mostly) bare walls of our not-so-new house for some time now, but I have not wanted to break the bank doing so. Much of the decor from the old house just didn’t seem to work here, with either the scale or color or something being off.
Garage sales and thrift stores didn’t yield quite what I was looking for either; however, our field trip to P. Graham Dunn last December inspired me with a lot of great ideas.
So, several weeks ago during their customer appreciation week and big tent sale, I packed up the kids and headed to Dalton on a mission.
I bought 9 pieces for our walls, some small and some larger, plus a few greeting cards—all for $100.
I was especially pleased to find this item, which would normally have cost me $100 all by itself. It was in the factory outlet section at a reduced cost, which was then discounted by 50% at the checkout counter. $22.50! It has a few minor flaws, but they’re not nearly as noticeable as those cobwebs in the picture that I’m just now seeing. Oh dear.
With measurements in hand, I checked items off my list one by one. I still have a few bare spots, but I hope to fill them in at the next sale.
Here are a few more of my bargains I wanted to show you.
If you’re in driving distance of Dalton, Ohio, I highly recommend a visit!
Edited to add: I have seen a few P. Graham Dunn items at Hobby Lobby as well. Make sure you print off the 40% off coupon from the HL website before going!
