Letting Fate Decide My Decorating…


When you think of a blogger’s office you probably envision beautiful spaces.

Y’know, like this…


{The Blissful Bee}



{Bower Power}

Or something like this…


{Two Twenty One}


Mine sort of looks like this…


Which actually is an improvement from this…


Our office was always that room that crap stuff just somehow magically accumulated over time. 

Do any of you have rooms like that?

To make matters worse we didn’t  have anywhere to put anything so stuff crap would end up in piles on the floor that the cats would use as their personal slip and slide.

So what’s the point of this ramble-y post???

If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll remember me showing you these cuties that I snapped up at Goodwill for two buckaroos.


IPhone picture…sorry!

As soon as I spotted these super cool bookends I knew I wanted to paint them either gold or white.


Gold won, and as I spray painted  I had visions {hallucinations?} of displaying these beauties high up on a white bookshelf…

But wait! There’s more…

 Now…If you follow me on Facebook, then you know that this weekend I ALSO scored a pretty sweet deal on these THREE pieces of furniture.


Dude…Ninety bucks…no joke! 

You see, after the fun find at Goodwill…That same night, I ended up at an auction.

Do you believe in fate?

I do…Like why on this night of all nights did my daughter decide she “wanted to hear the guys talk fast and funny.”

I was up for it.

I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, but I actually enjoy going just to hang out and observe the bidding chaos.

Two hours into it though and I was ready to go, when I saw these hit the auction block.

I almost jumped out of my skin with excitement, but had to keep a straight face as I scoped around the room to see if anyone looked interested.

The weird thing is they were auctioning the pieces off with a white twin bed frame, that clearly didn’t match.

The were calling it a bedroom set, but really?


Call me crazy but I see office furniture.

I plan on reselling the twin bed since I don’t need it, so when all is said and done I’ll probably only of spent $70 for these THREE pieces!

I can’t believe the luck I had on Friday night, and am taking it as a sign from the home decor Gods that my office is in desperate need of a makeover.

Maybe I should let fate decide my decorating more often? I seem to have the best luck that way!

Have you found any incredible deals lately? Do you plan your decorating or just let things happen on their own? I’d love to know in the comments below!
