My High Low ProjectS

I have been inspired by Jenny Keenan's living room and the color scheme so deeply, I decided to pull a High Low Project like Sabrina Soto does on HGTV

So After looking for hours for the exact same coffee table, turns out these tables are called bricklayer wood and iron tables, and it could either be made out of drift wood, or reclaimed wood. So after seeing prices such as $999 to $1,800. I decided there was no way I would ever be able to afford it, or ever have one.

 So I gave up...until one day! I went to a local thrift store here in Salt Lake, and found this!!!!

You will never guess what the price tag on this beauty was.


Of course I had to have it!

High $1,200.00      Low $175.00


I feel sooo happy everytime I see it in my living room, this piece of furniture literally brings joy into my soul. And most of all, on my pocketbook! 


How about this gorgeous Chinese Garden Stool

from Wisteria $129.00

Love it, but hate the price tag. But check this out!

I am currently working on decorating my 10 month old's room. It brings me such pleasure being able to decorate his little room, my hope is to be done by his 1st. Birthday coming up in May. So far I am taking out my obsession for Orange, Gray and Blue colors, along with my contemporary style craving for design on his room. Here's my big statement piece High and Low for Nolan's room.

From Birtdie Table Lamp & Foscarini

I loved this piece when I first saw it, I knew it would be the perfect punch of color and statement piece for Nolan's room. The price about gave me a heart attack!

Until I found this, and it looks so much better in a kid's room.

High $680.00        Low $34.95
It looks perfect in Nolan's Room. I'll show you his room's progresss in another time.

Currently I am still working on many projects for my new little nest, so much to do, so little budget! But that is no problem for me, because I can do anything, just give me a budget and I can work with that. That is why the High Low project is such a beautiful inspirational show for me, I am so glad Sabrina and I are on the same page. So I will keep working on my High Low project, and will show you the progress.


  1. I have never seen the show, but I'm certainly impressed with your finds!
