Hey peeps have you missed me? I am currently in Atlanta for our family vacation. I got the awesome opportunity to visit one of my favorite places for design inspiration…

Ballard Designs -oh how I love thee. The terrific part about this store is that this is one of only two of their Backrooms which is where all of their clearance and closeout stuff is sold. Their normally expensive stuff is way more affordable at this place. It was so fun to touch all the things I just get to peruse in their catalog.

Cute little Gallerie Hutch…catalog price $699.99. Backroom price $99!

Look at all their lighting and art…

These clocks are originally $129-$249 in their catalog but at the Backroom they were $9.99!

I desperately wanted this Louis Wood bed frame for my guest bedroom which is regularly priced at $899. I love the caning and the legs looked like the exact design on my dresser refab. But at $323 it was still out of my price range.

Linens, bedding, sofa covers, and more oh my!

And here is their great deals for the week!

It was a pretty large store and they had tons of furniture! If you are ever in the Atlanta area you must stop at one of the two Ballard Backroom stores. You will love it!

  8. WHAT? Why does it seem that Cali is the last place to get all the cool stuff??? The only thing I can boast is Ikea.

  14. Where is this place? I have lived in ATL for 13 years and have never heard of it. I'm all for a decorating deal!!

  15. Your pictures inspire me, maybe I will head over there after all. You seem to be popular with us Atlantans – maybe you should move here too!

  19. WOW what fun. Wish I was there with you and had a uhaul. I was pretty pumped I got to make it to the JoAnn's store closing final days sale (terre Haute). But Buttons for a penny and patterns for a dime just doesn't compare.

  20. Wow! My Mom lives in Athens so maybe I could talk her into a trip over sometime. Looks like great deals. Jackie

  21. I just found your blog and I am loving it! AMAZING! I have a question. I saw a post about your daughters room and I am loving the wall project. My walls are textured so painting stripes would be pretty difficult for a beginner like me. I was think of doing it with vinyl wall decals. have you seen or heard of someone doing this or do you know of a company I can go through? Thanks and I'll be blog-stalking again soon!

  22. Yes! I've missed you! I wish there were a Ballard's Back Room near here. Not that Atlanta is so very far away–but it seems like I'm only ever in the Atlanta AIRPORT, never really in town. Glad you're having a good time!

  23. Oh NO!! I was in the Atlanta area all week. Wish I had been able to check your site while I was there!

  24. Beckie when will you be home? -Drew and I are in Michigan right now and we were hoping to maybe stop and see you and Tim on our way home on Saturday. Call my cell if your going to be home- 614-915-4190 Hopefully you don't have any crazy blogger friends that will call my cell. 😉


  25. I used to go here when we lived in Georgia~I sure do miss it!

    Have a happy Monday~ I am slowly making my way through all of the comments that I so lovingly received last Thursday when I was featured on SITS. Thank you so very much for visiting me.

  26. Hey there! I was wondering if you have a preference between the Roswell location and intown/westside location for best deals and selection? My sister-in-law and I are heading there tomorrow, hope you have some input! Thanks!

  27. I had no idea there was such a thing- I will have to check it out. Just moved to the area last year, so this is great info!
