Attention, Non Wal-Mart Shoppers

I must admit, I'm a Target girl through and through. Never cared much for Wal-Mart, but recently I've been on the hunt for this stuff which led me to the mega-retailer . . .
It's Rust-Oleum's Specialty Metallic spray paint in brass. I bought three cans of it several weeks ago and have intermittently spray painted my IKEA Vittsjo shelves with it (as weather/temperature/my injured toe permitted). So, of course, the other day I ran out - I never seem to buy enough spray paint. No problem, I thought. I headed back to Home Depot - they don't stock it anymore. Lowe's - same deal. And lastly, I tried Wal-Mart - no dice there either. What the hell, Rust-Oleum, have you quit making the brass version of this paint which bloggers love and swear by?? Long story short, I ended up ordering some online. However, while at my local Wal-Mart, I picked up some cute things in addition to a garden hose. 

Behold, my new ikat cushions for my outdoor chairs (which I bought last year at World Market) . . . 
I thought they were pretty and colorful . . . 

And, I picked up some beach towels there too (it was sunny, beautiful and 80 degrees here yesterday so that may have had something to do with my largely outdoor-related purchases as well):

Cute, right? Okay, so I may not become a regular at Wal-Mart but it's nice to know they have some decent stuff.

Wish me luck as tomorrow I'm going to try and rise super early to snag some estate sale goodies. I'll let you know how it works out . . . hopefully I won't have to throw any elbows. I'm serious . . . estate sale people don't play around.

Color me shocked. I thought the only pattern they carried was the Confederate flag.

what? yours must be way better than mine. did you see the cool seating cubes sissy got there? I gotta pay more attention.

Walmart? No way. I think my opposition to Walmart runs deeper than their aesthetic, but it's good to see they are livening up their selection.

Hope the estate sales are a success! Looking forward to seeing what you make off with.

You should try Montana Gold Spray Paint...from what I have read it is the best.
