Target's Home Design Event: My Finds!

I saw these two circular accessories when the event first started, but I wasn't about to pay full price for them. Then I got word that everything was 30% off and I took advantage of our "inclement cold weather" day off school and made the trip to pick these babies up.

I liked the grey color, but wanted them to be white. So I secured the bottoms with plastic bags, as to make sure that part stayed black, and then I spray painted them outside in the freeeezing cold. And, I know I was ideally supposed to wait until it was warmer, but I'm an impatient girl and wanted to put them in the office asap!

They really pop being white and look super sweet next to my "Disco Stu" plant from Wal-Mart {another $5 find : ) }!

Cute! I so need you to come over to my house and help me with this sort of stuff...If I had enough money, I'd just write you a check and let you loose in my house and tell you to have fun! Oh how I need to win the lottery!

Very nice. It was definitely a good move with the white spraypaint...makes me wonder why they didn't just make them white in the first place :)

I was eyeballing those the other day, but wasn't sure about the gray either. You've totally made me want to go back and get them. Love the white!
