This happened to me the other day and it was SO EXCITING!

A discount shopping store called DownEast Home recently opened by me in Phoenix and I noticed that they had really cute kids furniture and items, but what I didn’t realize until I saw the backpacks and lunch boxes they recently put out, was that they are Pottery Barn stuff!

It was like a fun treasure hunt to see if they had anything with my own kids names and they did!! Hooray! So I scored two backpacks with their names already on them for just $14.99 each, and they retail for around $59!!

Now this retailer won’t tell you where they get their items for legal reasons, but as a PB Kids fan I can tell you a lot of it was from there! They had lunchboxes, luggage, furniture, bedding ect. What a fun place!

White Metal Farmhouse Style Chairs for the Kitchen

White metal farmhouse style chairs fancyfrugallife.comWe recently moved our kitchen chairs into the dining room, so I’ve been searching for some new ones that would match this table from the thrift store I painted last year.  I was super excited to spot these fantastic metal farmhouse style chairs at DownEast Home on sale last week. They are heavy weight, painted yet perfectly distressed, and easy for me to wipe down and keep clean!  I love the contrast they have to our chalkboard painted wall, and the brightness they bring to this space.

I think they fit in perfectly and look super cute in here! This kitchen nook makes me happy!
