Great Looking Pieces
 At Great Prices!

Target must have the best marketing team around.

They never cease to amaze me with their product lines and advertising.

As you already know their price points make it possible to purchase some really nice looking pieces at affordable prices.

I thought it would be fun to periodically show you all some of the pieces that I think are great looking at great prices.

Threshold™ Brass Task Lamp (includes CFL Bulb):

We all know that brass is huge in the design world and I thought this desk lamp has  great style and could fit in most homes easily and for  $56.99 you can’t beat the price!

Decorative Accent Piece Figurine - Gold : Target:

If you are looking for a fun decorative piece to add to a coffee table or on a bookcase shelf, this metal orb will look great at $15.99

Threshold Shower Curtain Gold Ikat:

For under $20 you can get this shower curtain. I am in love with this pattern and I think this would make a great looking tablecloth, just cut the grommet end off and hem it up. Never forget to look at shower curtains, sheets, and tablecloth for your needs in the fabric department.

This ottoman is perfect to cover with the Ikea sheepskin rug, unscrew top and staple the faux fur over the top and you have a custom ottoman for under $90. I just might do this myself,loving this!Nate Berkus™ Plaid Upholstered Ottoman:

I am in love with this little ottoman. I have recommended this to a friend for her home and told her to get a faux fur throw or the Ikea sheepskin rug and just staple gun it on top of the existing fabric to give some texture and a bit of gold in the room. For under $70 you can’t go wrong. I saw one that was so similar to this one for over $1,200. You do the math!!!
I was thinking something similar to this would be fun for the brown leather chair. This is too expensive, but I think with a faux fur throw and an ottoman or small table topped with foam this would be a totally easy DIY:

Do you need a nice looking end table?

If you need a nice accent table this would bring in some of your gold and a table like this can be used anywhere. Round Gold Accent Table with Marble Top:

Everyone can always use a small end table. This classic shape can go just about anywhere and for under $90 you will have a table that looks much more expensive with it’s gold legs and marble top.

With the holidays coming up just around the corner it might be a bit early for some, but if you want to get some fun things before the rush begins, now is the time to start planning.

Threshold™™ Metallic Wish Flour Sack Towel:

This is actually a flour sack tea towel, but I would totally use this as my Thanksgiving dinner napkins. At $3.99 they are more than affordable and could be the jumping off point for your Holiday table.
Threshold™ Copper Piecing Placemat:
How about a sharp looking placemat for under $5.00 each!?

If you really want to get into the spirit of the day you could go for these instead….
Threshold™ Thankful Placemat:

Threshold™ Starburst Reclaimed Mirror - Grey 28":

I fell in love with this mirror especially for the price below $50.

Threshold™ Greek Key Throw:
Can you beat this price for under $18 for a Greek key motif throw? I think not!!

Threshold™ Lattice Throw:

I use to love to peruse the aisles of Target when my boys were in school. I don’t do that very much anymore but I sure do check them out online from time to time and I always find some stylish bargain. I hope this inspires you to do a little looking too!!
