2nd stop: IKEA!! It'd been MONTHS since I had been there last, and I was thrilled to spend my "lunch break" shopping around. Look at all my goodies:
4 small square pillow forms for $1.49 ea
1 larger rectangular pillow form for $2.99
4 packs of 5 children's wood hangers for $2.99 ea
and in clearance:
1 cute stuffed elephant for $.25
1 colored striped pillow cover for $1.00
1 (ugly) potholder for $1.00
1 black and green couch cushion cover for $2.00
1 large white couch cushion cover for $3.00
1 stainless steel toilet paper ring for $3.00
All together: $31.43 (or some odd cents like that.) A STEAL in my opinion...
I have projects in mind for all of these things and CANNOT wait to get started!!! I'll post the projects as I get them done. Whoo hoo.
The BEST part: I had previously bought those 5 pk of kids hangers from Container Store for (eek) $9.99 and literally could not find them for sale anywhere else. I finally thought, just this morning, about searching for a coupon code online for Container Store and ordering them for $7.99 instead, and got all excited about that deal...But decided to hold off on ordering them until tonight. But then, IKEA TO THE RESCUE!! I couldn't believe the $2.99 sticker price! So I had to snag 4 packs...haha. They are SO cute as a mod podge baby gift. I didn't take pics of the last one I did, but I'll be making them again soon for my pregnant sister in law!
Hope everyone had as great a day as I did!
