That title sums me up. That could be the name of my blog. Etched on my headstone, or written across my back.
I love Anthropologie. But truth be told, I've bought one thing from there. It was this
My stay at home mom budget doesn't include splurges from there, so I'm relegated to Walmart...Target on a good week. (Although we did take a family outing to a farmer's market down the street this morning....it's my new favorite place, and will hopefully keep me from Wallyworld.)
So, in lieu of being an Anthropologie junkie, I just fake it. I always fake it, and, some days, fake it well. I think I faked it well today.
Jeff snagged a solid turned leg coffee table about a year ago off craigslist for about $100. Similar coffee table shown here for a bit more. :) I've been meaning to refinish it from day 1, but things get in the way, if you know what I mean.
Last weekend I was looking at Better Homes and Gardens and realized I needed a better home. Or at least a better living room. Meaning, it was time.
I drug the table out back (which was a feat in itself) and got busy. We had some black paint from when we redid the den, so I was set!
But for now, I'm loving the living room!
Now, what about those curtians....
