Deals of the Week

In honor of my mom and her on-going work in progress: her old home renovation, everything today will be stuff that I am suggesting to her - maybe you'll find a gem in the lot for yourself as well??

To replace mom's current lazyboy recliner AND small sofa ( both are ancient) -I think this recliner loveseat would do the trick, save space and still provide her with: the recliner that she loves, but still a sofa to lay down on if the need for a nap strikes. Plus, the addition of leather will add a longer wear time.

Mom's small kitchen is currently looking a little tired. her current cabinet situation is gross. The high gloss finish on a browny-peuce colored faux wood grain is yucky. Not to mention that they are small, and there are very few cabinets - only the small wall with the stove has them. I'm thinking these cabinets from Ikea, would do the trick. In white, they open the space up, and look so clean and fresh. The prices start at $99.00 per cabinet, but mom could even afford a couple with glass doors, to show off her pretty stuff!

To complement the new white cabinets, and the new silvery blue color she's painted the walls, this glass subway tile would look sper sharp as a new backsplash. This one is from the Home Depot, at only $41.28 a box, a little will go a long way in her tiny kitchen!

Mom recently got rid of her old coffee tables (thanks mom) as she didn't have space for them... these nesting tables from Ikea are only $99.00. She could keep them stacked (nested) when not in use to save space, and when she has guests and needs more of a coffee table, place them all in a row, and maximize table space.

These curtains from Ikea make me happy as well. At only $79 for the pair, they are super cute. They're modern, without being overly trendy and the colors are great and would work in any of the rooms at mom's place. In fact, I am contemplating these for our house..... They would work great on the main floor.
