Shortcut to Fabulous Wall Decor

HG000182We found this fun, fabulous golden flower bursts at Jayson Home and Garden, click here to order. They start at $45 and will make a big impact…even with a small budget. We think these bursts look great as shown here in a group of three, but if you are on a tight budget try getting just one and grouping it with some lower end items such as the chestnut profile shelves from the Container Store photographed below on sale for under $30. Get two different size shelves and then one burst. Group them along a wall. You can change out the pictures and items displayed on the shelves whenever your mood changes! You can add even more impact by spray painting objects gold or brass color and putting them on the shelves. Any object would work. You could find an ugly garden frog on the clearance shelf in the Garden section at your local home improvement store. Spray paint it gold or brass color, and…voila…a decorator look on a budget!

Well, J.Crew has outlet stores around the country with the same great styles, but the clothes are manufactured specifically for the outlet so the quality may not be the same as regular J.Crew clothes. I have purchased from the outlet myself and have never had quality issues. If you are like me, the closest J.Crew outlet is not that close. Well, J.Crew has created a weekend only online outlet store that will help you get your J.Crew fix on a budget. The assortment of available clothes is limited and you only have three days to shop, so get online early and if you fall in love, buy it! Now, you may be wondering about the return policy for J. Crew factory outlet items. J.Crew Factory items purchased through can only be returned through the mail and at J.Crew Factory stores.
