Part 2: Bargain hunting

We're still working on the remodernization of our 1964 house after the previous owners "traditionalized" it with curves and curlicues, mostly in oil rubbed bronze. They changed out every fixture, pull, handle and hinge...and now we're changing them back. To keep it from breaking the bank, we've been shopping for bargains.

I shared some great finds in my previous post. Here are a few more the you might enjoy.

  • Ceiling fan for sunroom

Harbor Breeze Mazon fan, $118. Lowe's

  • Cabinet pulls

Orrnas knob, $3.99/2-pack, Ikea

Orrnas 13" pulls, $12.99/2-pack, Ikea

  • Light fixtures

Galaxy vanity strip, $155.80, Lowe's

Kichler vanity strip, $79, Lowe's

In the store: Great savings, good times

It's that time of year again. The Gus*Modern summer sale starts tomorrow, July 16, and runs through August 16. To make the kickoff day even better, it's Deep Ellum's monthly Wine Walk too.

If you're local, stop by the store for a little adult beverage while it lasts, and pick up some cool Gus pieces at 20% off.

Here are some of my favorite current Gus pieces. What are your favorites?
