I'm fortunate enough to live in a great antique district, and some good thrift stores that I frequently shop at. Here are some items I've recently picked up, on the cheap.
$3 Candle Jar Lantern Thingy. ( had Pottery Barn sticker on it for $15.99) it's hung in between windows in the guest room
This is a favorite, I was so stoked. See these brass pendant lamps?
here and here )
Well here's mine.
It's nice and big, and will eventually go in my stairwell.
Moving onto my laundry room. I took a 25 cent tension rod and hung this fabric in front of our fug laundry sink..
I've gone from this buffet set up...
It came complete with a key, which I promptly tied around this lamp so my curious 4 year old wouldnt get a hold of it.
