Etsy is one of my favorite places to shop. You can find just about anything there and I love that you’re getting something unique while also supporting small businesses. Win/win!
Earlier this year, I went through a phase where I felt the urge to completely redecorate my house. Unfortunately, my budget didn’t actually allow me to do so. Instead, I searched Etsy and bought some beautiful items to incorporate into my existing decor. Etsy offers items at all price ranges, so you can get some great pieces for whatever your budget is. Here are some items that I love right now:
I live in a row home and therefore have a ton of wall space, as I don’t have windows on the sides of the house. I finally gave in and put up a gallery wall (following the advice of Emily Henderson found here ) One of my favorite pieces of art is the one above. Because it’s three dimensional, it adds an interesting element to the wall. I also purchased this cloud shelf and incorporated it into the gallery wall as well. Besides being a part of the gallery wall, the cloud shelf has the added benefit of providing a place to store my kids’ coats/hats where they can easily reach them.
Next up, is this giraffe bookcase. It also comes in a few other shapes (I like the lion as well). While I opted to buy this Land of Nod bookcase instead, I think the ones on Etsy are a fantastic option and will be something that you won’t see in other houses.
I also love these honeycomb shelves. They provide a great way to display a collection of items. You can also paint them in a bright color so that you really have something that stands out in your home.
This oar coat rack is also a fantastic piece. I’m thinking of buying it for the bay house, but there are so many other items that I want from the shop as well (like this mirror and this driftwood shelf).
I really like quirky items. This hippo lawn sculpture is just that. It would definitely be one of those items that people stop and stare at when they pass by your house (you would probably be known as the “hippo house”). Alas, my dog would probably consider it either a threat or a playmate and bark incessantly at it, so it’s just in my favorites section on Etsy for now.
I have a strange obsession with birds in home decor and clothing, which is particularly odd since I’m not all that interested in birds in real life. I want this sculpture for my wall though,
Here’s another bird item (see, I told you!). If you don’t want to buy something major for your house, you can purchase these. Sometimes it’s the little items that you use everyday that give you the most joy anyway.
What are your favorite Etsy finds? Are you as obsessed as I am?
