Who says keeping your home looking fashionable has to cost a fortune? We're big fans of stores like Home Goods, World Market, and Target for inexpensive furniture and furnishings, but today we tried a little experiment and hit a different kind of store.
Behold the beauty of home decor shopping at Walmart. No, really. If you didn't know this stuff was from the discount superstore, you wouldn't suspect it. In fact, we found so much cute stuff we went over our original plan to find six things that stood out. So, instead, here are the nine things you're going to want to buy for your home at Walmart.
Didn't know Walmart had fabric? Neither did we. It’s not a huge section, so you’re not going to get the variety you would at a "regular" fabric store, but there was plenty to choose from. And now we have a fun new project recovering garage sale chairs that have been sitting in our garage for months.
How cute are these hurricanes at $9.88 each? Walmart also had a slew of candles in the same aisle, ranging from $2.97 for a tall pillar to $3.97 for 100 tealights.
This Hotel Style Collection is super soft and super chic. We love the pattern, but they did also have a variety of solid-color options.
We also like the Hotel Style Collection Towels, which were extremely soft and luxurious.
Grabbed these four throw pillows out of a bin, with prices ranging from $4–10. So cute.
Rug shopping is a beating. There are too many choices and colors and weaves and sizes, and most of them are too expensive. If you have a busy house with lots of two-legged and four-legged beings running around (ahem!), you may not want to invest in a high-quality piece at this point. Which is why this 7' x 10' rug in a fashion-forward graphic pattern (sensing a trend here?) was a great find. Especially at just $100!
In truth, they didn't have a ton of furniture at our Walmart (much more online), and most of what they had was of somewhat questionable quality. That's not surprising; you'll get a similar deal at Target or IKEA, depending on the piece. But this $248 TV unit definitely caught our eye. It's glorified cardboard in the back and we're not sure what the rest of it is made of, but it looks like wood, unlike many other pieces you might find that have a darker and not-so-rustic wood finish, it's an ample size at almost 60" wide, and the design is really attractive.
$.88 apiece, with a cool graphic pattern, and they wipe off clean? Done.
During our shopping excursion, we saw so many great mirrors, it was hard to choose. We ended up with this fun set of five round mirrors, which is going to look great on the wall next to the garage door. It was a screaming bargain, at $16.
