SUNDAY: Two Things

I shop everyday. I shop for me, I shop for Scott, I shop for friends, I shop for clients ... I love to shop. And nothing is quite as wonderful as finding a bargain worth sharing. I hope to make this a regular post each week, giving you inspirational pieces at a price you can afford!

Here's what 2 things I'm obsessed with this week:

1. The IKEA HENRIKSDAL Slipcovered Dining Chair with Armrests $99

I actually sat in this chair a few weekends ago when we took a trip with our friends Rick and Michael to the IKEA in Pittsburgh. They're comfy, sturdy, and beautifully sized - perfect for a formal dining room or casual breakfast nook. They're available of course in the standard white slip through IKEA, however, you can order a custom slipcover to fit the Henriksdal frame through in about 40 different fabrics, all of which you can order samples of before deciding on the slipcovers - which range in price from $69 - $139.

I literally can not wait for an excuse to use these!

2. Martha Stewart Paint : Silhouette Almost Black

I recently finished a project with this beautiful black from Martha Stewart Living line of paints available at Home Depot. I absolutely love it! Better yet, the MSL paints come in a perfectly sized 8oz. tester in an eggshell finish perfect for side tables, behind bookshelves, cabinets, and the like.

Stick around, I plan on showing you what I've done with this paint on Thursday.
