Is it just me, or does the world start going full-speed ahead when we get into May? I'm sure everyone is as busy, or maybe even busier than me. But, I'll just show you some of what we've been up to.
Through much research (does clicking on a handful of links count as research?), I found that Wisteria is based here in the DFW Metroplex.
So, hubby and I took a small trip to visit their warehouse that is open to the public. Oh, and our three kids. (I swear you could feel the eyebrows raise and the tension rise in the outlet when we walked in, but our kids are really pretty good in furniture stores, so nothing catastrophic happened. And, believe me, they're only good because of lots, and lots and lots of training. IE,
Me:Girls this is one of those stores where we...
Kids (in unison):DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!)
This was the piece that we were specifically looking for. Our finish is different. It's more green and uniform in color, but I still love it. I think the finish is probably why it was being sold at the outlet, cause otherwise, it's in perfect condition.
Hubby found this piece. It's perfect in front the big window in our dining room. Again, the finish is slightly different. Less rustic, more silver. Me likey.
And I couldn't resist these lamps. They were only $10, so we bought two. The birds were broken off, but I just glued them back on and saved $170, each!!!! ( I just looked online to see how expensive they were and almost had a stroke! I had no idea. If I had known, I would have bought more and sold them!)
So, a very successful trip, all in all. Everything we bought cost less than the original price of the bookcase. If you're in Dallas, I HIGHLY recommend it. I'll post pictures once I get everything in place.
*Update* I just have to say that I love my husband. When I called him to gasp at how expensive those lamps were, he was upset that I had blogged about it. To quote him, "But if you tell all your friends about it, then they'll go and buy all the good stuff and there won't be anything left for us." Gotta love a man whose looking forward to shopping for furniture! Oh, and apparently, as a favor to my husband, please don't go.
