How can you pass up a good buy at Home Goods?

You gotta get it! You know if you don't buy it, it will be gone and you won't have the option any longer. Okay... I admit it... I'm a home remodelaholic. Many of you out there are too, admit it. We buy our houses mostly because of timing. Most of the wishlist is there, but there is always work to do to make it yours, because no home is perfect. It's a work in progress. There are things you change right away and things you learn to live with.

Today I found something I wasn't looking for, but I always have my eye on when I see one. I found a bathroom vanity for our powder room, one to replace our pedestal sink with the shiny brass faucet.

I saw two other women looking at it, but then they walked away. I wheeled my cart over to look closely... nice dark finish, real wood, nice oil rubbed bronze hardware, nice neutral granite top, very nice price. I thought quickly, hesitated for a moment and then ripped the tag off to claim it! It's now sitting in my foyer.

Even my husband said it was a good find! I wanted to start the install right when we unloaded it, but no, it's patiently waiting. It has a good home now.

Of course I will have to find an ORB light fixture, faucet, towel and toilet paper holder, and paint the mirror frame in there ORB too. Maybe even paint the walls a different color... but it was a good find, and I am very pleased!

When you give a mouse a cookie you know it never stops there... especially if she's a remodelaholic!

  3. I would not have been able to pass it up either - what a great find. I have a powder room that needs updating also. I never thought about looking there for a sink. Will have to go over a take a look around.

    My best- Diane
