My High Low Project

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.

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.

$34.94 on Sale!!!!
High $680.00 Low $34.95
It looks perfect in Nolan's Room. Stay tuned for Nolan's Room progress.

I am obsessed with Stripes, and anything Nautical and Coastal. I wanted this gorgeous rug for my baby's bedroom, except it was:


By Wayfair

It was not going to happen, not for me, that was way much more than I was willing to spend. I was actually going to make one, unfortunately when I went back to the store to buy a white woven rug, they had already discontinued them, so I was unable to go through with my project. "Sad day".

Fortunately I was able to find the exact same one I wanted, for much less, a bit smaller than I orginally wanted, but not by much. It was a great deal, and I am super happy!

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. nice! can you explain high low project? i'm not familiar with that. is it a show? btw, found you from the reader space on iheartorganizing blog.

    1. Hey mindy! Thanks for stopping by :) well the high low project is a show on hgtv. The host, Sabrina Soto, is an interior designer who decorates a room according to people's taste and style without a budget. Once the owners see and approve of the decorating of their specific room they must give her a budget to decorate it exactly as she did. In other words, she must match the high end pieces on a budget, therefore she finds or makes similar furniture, accessories and such to replicate the room. Does that make sense?
