"Dwell with Goodwill"

I love a good deal!  I always have and I always will.  One of the places I love to shop is Goodwill.  I don't get to do it as often as I used to but when I have the time I love hitting the local Goodwills to see what treasures I can find.  I even incorporate some of them into my client projects.  I'm a firm believer that having a beautiful home doesn't have to cost a fortune.  I also love Goodwill's mission to....
I'm so excited to be partnering with them on a project for this spring.

We've asked the Goodwill fans to if they have any interior design dilemmas in their home?

You know, things like...
Don’t know how to style your living room coffee table? Looking for tips on what on-trend color to paint your dining room? Need help with how to decorate your screened porch for the warmer weather?

Well, we've collected their questions and I'll be helping readers solve those dilemmas each week in a Tell Dwell Tuesday post. (A bit of a throwback if you recall.)  My advice will be posted to the Goodwill blog on Tuesdays over the next few weeks, so be sure to subscribe and follow along on social media @GoodwillSP and @DwellByCheryl using the hashtag #TellDwellTuesdays!

In addition, join us for a free “Spruce Up for Spring” decorating class I'll be facilitating!  Bring your girlfriends for a Girls’ Night Out, or your spouse to learn new ideas to transform your shared home. The class will be hosted on Thursday, April 27 at 6 p.m. at the Goodwill Opportunity Campus (5301 Wilkinson Blvd, Charlotte, N.C. 28208).

I'll be offering advice on what’s trending and how to find the "good stuff", including identifying furniture with “good bones.”  I’ll share my tips for shopping thrift stores such as Goodwill – including the best times/frequency/locations to shop – and more. A signature “mocktail” and hors d’oeuvres will be provided, plus giveaways including a coupon to Goodwill's retail stores.

Space is limited, so RSVP now on Eventbrite at this link here. We hope to see you there!

"Fab Finds"

A friend and faithful reader recently reminded me that I used to share fabulous deals and steals on a post series entitled "Fab Five Friday".  She went on to say that she and another friend and blog reader had even purchased an item or two as a result of those posts. They both expressed a desire for me to do more of the types of blogs I did when I was first starting out. 

Ok, in my defense, I used to publish about three blogs each week, so there was plenty of time to round-up my favorite finds at various retailers and share them with you here.  These days however, I'm doing good to get one post out a week and it's often a status update or reveal of a client project I've been diligently working on.  I get it though.  This blog is really about you.  Those of you who read it are likely here because you want to learn more about how to spruce up your home on a budget.  Sure, you can glean inspiration and ideas from my client work but I probably should make a better effort to share with you some of the places I'm shopping for those amazing deals and fabulously affordable finds.

So with that,  here's a brand new "Fab" post and since it's not Friday and I couldn't stop at five, let's just call it the Fab Finds post.

You may or may not be familiar with Brylane Home.  I recall them from years ago.  For me, they've always been the mail-order curtain and bedding people.  They've always had very affordable pricing, but the style factor of their merchandise was, well.....yikes.

Don't get me wrong, you could occasionally find a winner or two.  In fact, my most popular project on Houzz includes bedding from Brylane.

But for the most part, it was slim pickings.  Well, not anymore. I've rounded up ten (and it was hard to stop at ten) of my favorite finds at Brylane Home.

I was shocked at how stylish the inventory has gotten.  I even spotted a find that I've used in a project that DID NOT come from Brylane. 

They are definitely worth a second look if you remember them and a first if not. 

Along that same vein of sharing with you tricks of the trade and tips for sprucing things up, I've got some news for the locals...coming soon! Stay tuned!
