We’ve been in our home for close to three years now, and while most of our furniture is still fairly new and in good condition, lately I’ve been getting the itch to change things up a bit.
Looking around, I zeroed in on this corner of the room that could use a little pick-me-up. While I still adore the turquoise and white chevron chair, I felt like I wanted something a little more sophisticated in this area. Since the colors pair perfectly with my girls’ bedroom, I decided to relocate it there and search for something new.
It was around this time that a friend sent me a link to the new Libby Langdon line on Walmart.com. Have you seen this yet? I mean, wow… it’s like Walmart is finally moving into the 20th century! Beautiful colors, textures, and styles abound — and I’ll tell you, they’re just as amazing in person as they are on screen.
I’ll just be honest… Walmart is a store that I shop. Know what I mean? Get in, check off everything on my list, and get out again. But when I want to just browse, it’s not at the top of my list.
Little glimpses of new lines like this give me hope that they may be trying to update their image, though…
With the kids getting ready for back to school, I knew that I wouldn’t have a lot of wiggle room in our finances to spruce things up a bit, so I gave myself a budget of $200 to see what I could come up with. After some careful consideration, I settled on this Avenue Six Curves Hour Glass Chair in oyster, a total steal at just $132.92!
I also snagged one of these gorgeous linen pillows and a gray handmade throw. At $44.98, the pillow is a bit on the splurge side for me, but the satin embroidery on the linen fabric is so beautiful, that I just couldn’t resist. And the handmade herringbone blanket is such a bargain at just $19.98, that I was easily able to stay within my small budget.
To round out my little corner makeover (and stay under budget), I shopped the house for some accessories. I kept the silver end table, and added a Core Root Crafts platter that’s normally tucked away in my buffet, as well as some shells that we found on our recent trip to Outer Banks.
The end result is a bit more refined, but still has the laid-back, beachy feel that I’ve been loving so much lately. AND I stayed under budget!
I’d like to find some artwork to hang on the white wall above the chair, but I’ll wait until next month to make that purchase — which also gives me plenty of time to find just the right piece. Any suggestions?
