Home Goods addiction and fabric wall treatment

Hi, my name is Victoria and I am a recovering Home Goods addict.  Really bad addiction.  Every Friday after dropping Bella off at gymnastic, Aurora and I do our weekly Home Goods walk through.  The problem is it is never just a walk through.  I have to, HAVE TO, come home with something.  Home Goods is like this beautiful vampire that mesmerize you into thinking you need anything and every thing in that store.  It sucks you dry but you keep going back for more.  I finally have to break up with Home Goods.  It was bad and messy and a lot of tears were shed but I did it.  But over the weekend my bff got me Home Goods gift card as my birthday present...oh yes, the big 3-0.  I look at that card like Smeagol from Lord of the Rings...with my little eyes popping out and chanting "my precious."  Anyway, this is what I came home with.


It actually is more blue than the pictures.






This is the real color.  Like it. Love it. So happy with it.



I love using scraps of fabric as wall treatment.  I think it makes the space more personal and goes well with my budget.





This is my pantry and I used old pillow cases on this one.  A little bit of Mod Podge and Voila!  


My grandmother gave me this little "kitchen island."  I painted it and used left over fabric to dress it up a bit.  I have the world smallest kitchen and it is very outdated.  I know it is going to be years until I can afford to renovate anything.  I have to say though, almost all of my crazy projects have been done in the kitchen...like the fridge and my vintage books wallpaper.




I have been trying to do a lot of little projects around the house.  I am in the process of redoing my bedroom and this is my inspiration.

 How gorgeous is this?  It is from Rachel Ashwell's  The Prairie in Round Top, Texas.  I can just imagine myself waking up every morning to this...sigh... I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Love,
Victoria

  8. Victoria, what a delightful post. I found you while looking through the many excellent features at Mod Vintage Life. I chuckled through your birthday gift card section, and appreciated what you did with fabric on your pantry door. Stop the presses, though, when I saw the refrigerator. I just saw that featured on another site -- and you're the fridge lady. Very nice job. Keep up the great work. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey

  10. I too broke up with Home goods and Target over a year ago... And I have to say that I am so happy I did even though it was difficult at first.

  11. I think Home Goods is dangerous for all of us! Last year my MIL took me there to look for my Bday present, I found a terrarium I loved but on a whim, we went next door to TJ Maxx and found it for $10 less! So now I always check there before buying:) Your home is lovely! Love your pillow case door:)

  13. I just commented and it went away so I am trying again. I found you by way of a friend sending me a pin of your pantry door, which is beautiful by the way. My very favorite thing is the fridge! We are about to remodel our kitchen and if the appliance bid comes in too high I have considered painting my stainless steel ( hate stainless ) with Annie Sloan's Duck Egg Blue paint...maybe toned down a little with some white mixed in. I am wondering what you used. I am also fascinated and in love with the panels on the front. Are they frames? Did you just glue them on or how did you attach the decoration? Thanks so much for your answers, in advance. My email is cecedreams@gmail.com. CeCe

  15. I love your style! I have wanted to paper a wall with pages of a book and scrapbook papers, but never have. What did you use to adhere papers to the wall?
