New West Elm String Art

I love finding a steal! There's such a thrill involved. Last week I was at West Elm scouring the clearance section leisurely browsing their beautiful store and came across my newest steal...string art.


This Geo Stitch retails for $129. At that price there's no way I would have purchased 3 of these babies, but look at how many are happily hanging in our entry...
Would you believe me if I told you I paid less for all 3 than the original price of one?! At $39.99 each, paired with my designer discount the grand total came out to $116. (Sorry for the massive glare, but you get the point.) 

I checked online to see if the priced matched but sadly it doesn't. It's still a good deal though at $54.99.

It's not a huge change up from what was hanging there originally (see below), but I was tired of framed scrap paper and felt the original glossy frames didn't quite fit into the vibe I am going for. Plus, the scale of the new art is much better.

I wish I could show you a panoramic shot and let you see how fun the geometric strings look with our entry wall. They're the perfect compliment! You'll just have to use your imagination...




So tell me, when you find a steal do you find yourself telling everyone who comments on it exactly how much you paid? My husband will never understand why women do this!

It actually drives my mom nuts that I tell people exactly how much I paid. She doesn't get it ;) Oldschool I guess!
Love them

Awesome deal! Yep, I always say what I paid not only because I'm proud of it, but also because I don't ever want to seem like someone who isn't conscious about how they are spending money, if that makes sense. Love that entry wall!!
