Retail Therapy For Friday: Two Fun Goodwill Finds and an Easy DIY Decorative Coral

Yesterday we had a monsoon here in Greenville, SC.

Oh we needed the rain so badly.

But to escape the deary weather I ran into Goodwill after work.

I scored two decorative accessories that I was actually looking at buying new at other stores.

From Goodwill:

From West Elm and One Kings Lane:

Both the giraffe and the coral found places to call home last night…but I might be using some spray paint on them this weekend.

Yay for chic cheap decorating.

And Fedex man just delivered the remaining pieces of hardware for my Pottery Barn Look-a-Like light fixture, just in time to get it installed this weekend.

Common Sense note: If you want some chic inexpensive coral decorative pieces in your home,  this tip from Bubbly Nature Creations is genius.
