Walmizzle

Ever have one of these things inΒ  your space?

 

Of course you have. And, if you’re like me…you probably still have them. Now, I’m not a proponent of filling every possible space on your wall with art. It’s nice to have some breathing room – or white space – even in a house. But if your whole house has “breathing room” – well, it might just be time to hit up Walmart. (Affectionately termed Walmizzle by my man and me.)

Wait…Walmart?

Yep.

I know. I couldn’t believe it myself.

But I found the perfect thing at Walmart. I was speeding along the aisles and just happened to glance at the candle section. Well, maybe “just happened” isn’t the best choice of words. I do tend to peruse that aisle quite a bit. Although, now that I have 2 kids, lingering in Walmart (or any store for that matter) is not a popular thing to do.

Yessirreebob, this is what grabbed my attention:

And for $15, I decided I could get it, save the receipt, and if my hubby didn’t like it, back to the store I (and it) would glumly go.

Since the candles didn’t come with the sconces, I also looked for some that would match my decor. Happy for me they had some that matched perfectly:

To be perfectly honest, I don’t really care for the scent. But since it’s more about the color than the scent, I decided to get them anyway. Besides, I probably won’t ever light them.

I already had a canvas print I love that I got from good ol’ Target. Love that place. And it was on clearance. Love me some clearance. (Which – total rabbit trail – but Kohl’s has been having a pretty awesome clearance over the weekend. If you’re near one, you might want to check it out.)

So I hung the canvas print on my blank wall and then after I got the “go-ahead” from my hubby (good man), I nailed those babies to the wall:

Ahhh…much better:

And it goes the colors go perfectly with my rug (also from Target):

Moral of the story: keep your eyes open when you’re at Walmizzle. Or any place for that matter. You never know what treasures you may find…

Have a lovely Monday!

    This looks great! I love the color combo! I am redoing a hallway in my house and hope to use the teal, blue, and browns also! One word from someone who has very similar candles on her wall though… watch them carefully when you light them. I noticed after burning mine for a little while it started to turn the wall black right above where the candle was hanging. Just keep an eye on it. Looks awesome! πŸ™‚

    These pictures are good, but don’t do justice to how the deco affects the whole room. It has a very cosy but elegant feel to it. Love it!

    Love those sconces! I’ve been looking for some similar to that for our dining room. Now I can’t wait to go shopping and see if I can find some for myself. πŸ™‚

    This looks great! I recently got the tealight candle sconces for our dining room and we love them… and we were also considering the ones you got for our bedroom, but we haven’t decided yet. It helps to see a picture of what they actually look like on a wall! πŸ™‚
