HomeGoods Meets Ikea Meets Pier 1

I knew I wanted something new on top of our vanity in our bathroom.  Now I just had to figure out what to put there.  Well I’ve been seeing a lot of small trays with bathroom stuff on top of them, so I was on the hunt for just the right one.  I go “looking” or “shopping” often enough at HomeGoods & Ikea.  I’m lucky enough to have both either near my home or near my job.
First, I wanted something to hold my Q-tips, but it had to sort of hide them.  I remembered that I had a crystal container with a lid, so I pulled it out of the closet.  It’s perfect for what I wanted it for.  The crystal container was completely free because I received it as a Thank You gift from a shower I went to.  Second, I wanted something that was decorative to go on the tray.  I found the blue bowl in the kitchen area of Ikea.  It was $2.99.  Then I finally found the right tray.  I actually bought 3 differnet trays before I found the right one.  Right now HomeGoods has a lot of these type of trays in their bathroom section.  I was pretty sure I wanted white, but I had also found a silver & blue one.  So I bought all three and then picked the white one in the end.  The tray was $7.99.  So for a total of $11.00, I added some function & design to the bathroom.  I want to add some sand & sea shells to the blue bowl.  I have the sea shells already, just need to buy some sand.

This cute little bird came from Pier 1.  I bought him a couple of months ago.  He is a cute little touch to our bathroom.  I wanted more decor in the room that was lighter.  Who doesn’t like white ceramic birds.

This little bowl was found at HomeGoods a few months ago too.  I bought three and one of them ended up here.  I’m not sure where to use the other two yet.  We will see where they turn up in my home.

Down the road we will be repainting this bathroom a light blue.  It might be more down the road then I would like, but I will change the color sooner or later.  I want it to feel more like a spa.  I loved the green color {Benjamin Moore, Weekend Getaway} I picked when we first moved into the house, but now I want something a little lighter and I love blue.  You can check out this post to see some of my inspiration and how the rest of the bathroom looks.

Has anyone bought anything lately from HomeGoods, Ikea or Pier 1?  Do tell!  I would love to see what everyone else is buying lately.  πŸ˜‰
