Last week I made a discovery. HomeGoods.
I’ve been in a HomeGoods store once and even made a purchase. I bought a rug for our living room right after we had our living room carpet replaced with hardwood. I picked one out that I was sort of in-like with, then took it home. Now I am no longer in-like with it, but buying a new one is way, way low on the priority list. Plus, the memory of buying that rug and carting it home with a screaming toddler and a bored and complainy 6 year old boy on one of the hottest summer days is still burned in my mind. I probably swore I’d never go back to that store again.
And that has nothing to do with this post, anyway. I wanted to talk about Mini’s room.
I discovered a new HomeGoods store (well, new to me) that is about 45 minutes away and practically next door to where a friend lives. I see lots of shopping trips in our future because the minute I stepped foot in this particular store, I was in awe. It was neat, the aisles were wide, and the displays were attractive. The other HomeGoods seemed like a discount picked-over warehouse so I didn’t have the best first impression of the store. But now my opinion has been changed.
Plus I was there without kids. Do you think that means anything?
Anyway, this year I’m hoping to change the look in Mini’s room. I guess she’s more than ready to graduate from being in a baby crib.
If you know me, then you know it takes me a long time to commit to an idea I have, especially when it comes to home decor. I am so commitment-phobic of buying new furniture and accessories. I need a friend to intervene.
Good thing she lives down the street from HomeGoods. 🙂
(I’m checking out Craig’s List for a cute white twin bed. But do you have any other ideas for furniture in such a small room? What do you think the must-have pieces would be? A bookshelf? A dresser? She has a big closet and we have a small dresser already inside).
