IKEA over the Australia Day long weekend when they were having an IKEA Family sale - I picked up this one in white for under $50. Luckily we already had an umbrella base which fitted perfectly (just a good guess!). There are lots of beige, blue and black umbrellas out there, but finding a well-priced white one was harder than I thought.
My other buys of the bargain variety - the chevron bowl from Woolworths, which I'm pretty sure is the most Instagrammed bowl at the moment (I bought 2 of the other designs before Christmas). At $2.95 a bowl they are such great value! The blue & white striped Dixie cups are from The Reject Shop and are $2 (also available in pink & white and pink & red stripe designs).
Remember the $6 towels I mentioned here? Well the physical store Clique Brands had closed last week and they were selling off the last of the towels for $4 each - at that price I figured it couldn't hurt to have extra towels to keep by the pool. And the black & white stripe cushions? I actually made these a few years back but they've been in storage for the past few months while we've been building. At least that's one less job to do!
Have you come across any bargain decorating buys recently?
