We ran into Hobby Lobby on Labor Day so that I could scope out their fall decor. Somehow though, I had left my phone sitting on the kitchen table. I saw so many interesting things and no way to share what I found. So, today as we decided to run to Sam's Club for milk (why is milk suddenly so expensive at the grocery store? Don't they know I have boys in the house?), I knew that I would probably have time to run back in to Hobby Lobby and snap a few photos. Thank you, Dave. (I have a great husband!)
I really noticed the influence of my favorite HGTV show, Fixer Upper, in Hobby Lobby today. I think you'll see what I mean.
Have you seen Fixer Upper? This is the husband and wife team, Chip and Joanna Gaines. I love them and their obvious love for each other and their kids. It is refreshing to see.
Joanna is the designer of their projects and uses a lot of vintage, distressed type things in her designs.
But back to Hobby Lobby:)
Here's a few things that caught my eye today.
|These metal letters reminded me a lot of the design style on Fixer Upper.
|Chipped, vintage look and I LOVED the glass knobs. If we ever build a house again, I would like glass doorknobs for every bedroom door.
|This was a heavy cabinet type door with wire basket and hooks below. It would work great in a mudroom or hallway.
|I loved the distressed look of this piece. This would be a beautiful accent color to use in a room.
Loved that this arrow lit up. It would be so cute in a theater room.
Another chipped, vintage looking piece. I've seen a lot of blogs where they use something like this for hanging jewelry.
A little architectural interest. It would look great in our dining room.
Glass knobs. You can't get much better than these.
I know. I need a manicure. Sigh - I always notice too late.
And this little beauty came home with me today. I just love it! It reminds me of school days and of some of the choices for Fixer Upper (and the fact that it was 40% off didn't hurt either!)
What do you think of the design style on Fixer Upper? Has it influenced any projects in your home?
