For the last week, my newsfeed has been blowing up with posts about the #NSALE AKA the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This is a HUGE epic sale that happens just once a year when all the brand new fall merchandise including clothing, beauty and home decor is discounted up to 40% off before it even hits the floor. Pretty crazy right!
So I’ve decided to officially hop on the bandwagon and share my top 10 favorite farmhouse decor items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. But you’ll have act quickly… the sale only lasts through August 6 and items are selling out all the time. If you think you might want it… you might as well buy it because it’s FREE shipping. Prices will be shooting back up on August 7.
About a month ago, my bestie, Morgan, moved into an apartment in Chicago. She wanted her new space to feel cozy and comfortable without having to spend a lot of money. She’s currently in grad school so keeping it cheap was a must! She expressed the need for a get-ready station in her bedroom since she shares one small bathroom with her roommate. We looked all over for a simple vanity that would fit the space. The ones we found were either too expensive or just not quite right. So instead, we decided to refinish some old furniture pieces that she already had using chalk paint.
We spruced up the small table by using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite with Annie Sloan Soft Wax in Clear over the top. For the technique we used, just check out this past blog post… Transforming a Garage Sale Find with Chalk Paint.
For the mirror, here’s what we did…
- Start off with an old mirror you’re looking to transform. We used this old gaudy gold mirror pictured below or a wooden frame could work as well.
2. Brush the edges of the mirror off with a dust rag to insure you’re starting with a clean surface.
3. Use the painter’s tape to create a rectangle around the outer edge where the mirror meets the frame. Be sure to take your time and get as close to the edge of the frame as possible. This will insure a clean edge between the painted frame and the mirrored surface. You will be taping right on the mirror’s surface.
