Anyone remember these posts?  I have been coveting this duvet from Serena & Lily for some time and just saw a great knock-off for more than $120 less….

Buy This, Not That

I am sorry for the radio silence last week.  I was traveling for work and trying to catch the runaway train that has become my life!  I have about 1092841740 blog posts drafted, and none of them are finished, so that will be my goal for this week. 

In the meantime, I found a great summery BTNT gem for you all:

It’s Nate Day! Buy Nate, Not That….

Happy Nate Day!  Nate Day was organized by the Moggit Girls as a day for the design blog world to celebrate the one-and-only, designer extraordinaire, Nate Berkus.  The Nate Berkus Show premiers on September 13th.  I can’t wait to set my DVR!

I love that this guy an amazingly brilliant designer with big-budget clients like, hmmm OPRAH!, but he always designs with a mixture of high and low priced items and isn’t afraid of some DIY.  This philosophy is reflected in his FABULOUS line for the Home Shopping Network (HSN).  In honor of Nate Day, I thought it only appropriate to do a little BUY THIS, NOT THAT action to celebrate this gorgeous and affordable line of items for the home.  Shall we?

Buy This, Not That: I Did!

I have been eyeing these modern dining chairs for a while.  So….

LOVE THIS?

{Eames Molded Plywood Dining Chair, Design Within Reach, $499 for white}

AND LOVE THIS TOO?

{Scoop Back Chairs, West Elm, $99 for designed chairs, $79 for white chairs}

BUY THIS!

{Modern Stacking Chairs, 2 pack, Target, $59.99 for 2 (in stores), less than $30 per chair!}

I did a post a while back on the gray and white West Elm chairs above and have been thinking about those beauties ever since.  Earlier this week, I saw the Target chairs above on sale at my local store for $59.99 for 2!

We have the kitchen table and chairs that my family sat at throughout my childhood.  For sentimental reasons, I don’t think that I could ever get rid of the table, but the set looks really dated (uh hem, ’70s).  I wanted a little update without getting a new kitchen table set.  These chairs are perfect!

I snapped some impromptu, before-and-after pictures last night before dinner:

BEFORE:

AFTER:

I love the new sleeker look!  There is no longer a jumble of thick wooden spindles under the table. I was considering painting the table, but I really like the contrast of the wood table and white chairs.  The white chairs break up the color of the floor and the table.  I am really enjoying my $30 chairs!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  I hope it’s fabulous.  xxoo!


Bullseye Again — Ceramic Garden Stools on the Cheap

So, I was perusing our local Target with a girlfriend this morning and chatting about how perfect some ceramic garden stools would look in a small nook of a mutual friend’s new home, when I came accross these:

Sorry for the blurry picture, but YES, that says $49!!!!  And I love this olive/sage green color too:

I checked out Target’s website and the SAME ceramic stools are listed for $189.99 (ed. note: the stools above appear to be squarish in the pictures, but were round-looking in person!) :

{Drum Garden Stools, Target, $189.99}

They are on sale in the stores for 75% off or 1/4 of the price!  Whaaaat?  Ok, peeps, RUN, DON’T WALK to your local Target and pick up a couple of these puppies!

Buy This, Not That — Headboards and Beds!

So, I have been looking around for a new headboard for my daughter’s big girl room and am WOWED with Target’s selection of beds and headboards, and really impressed by the favorable customer reviews too, that I was inspired to do another bed/headboard edition of Buy This, Not That!  Enjoy and happy weekend!
