My Kmart Style-Home Improvement Thursday #HIT

My Kmart Style-Home Improvement Thursday #HIT

Earlier this year, we completed the makeovers of my Step Daughter’s bedroom and my Sons bedroom, and now I’ve finally completed the bedroom of my 14 year old Step Son. I’ve taken inspiration from our #HITKmartStyle challenge and used as many items as I could from Kmart. I’m rather pleased with the results, though today I am only going to share a few of our favourite pieces.


This wire basket is from Kmart available here for $12


The copper lamp, pineapple door stop, cactus and desk accessories are all available from Kmart starting at $3



This paint dipped stool is from Kmart, you can purchase it here for only $12


Love this print from Kmart only $12

Simple Christmas Table


  1. Kmart is just ridiculously awesome, isn’t it?! I bought some gorgeous cushions from there to liven up our living room upstairs. Yesterday, I bought the girls six pair of shorts for $30. Talk about bargain city. I want everything in that store ?

    1. I know it’s crazy right! ?! They have some awesome basic stuff for my kids ( who are at that age where if it’s not a brand they won’t wear it) but their homewares really have my heart at the moment. Thank you for joining our link up xx

  2. I love me some KMART! Especially anything in the HOME and OFFICE departments! It’s really bad – but OH-SO good.

    I bought a mint desk organiser for $8…originally $24, then when I got home I realised I already bought one a couple of months ago for the same price! Doh! Oh well!

    1. Just goes to show how super organised your desk is going to be! xx

  3. Your kids are going to have the coolest rooms around! Until the teenage mess takes over ? I can’t even think what I got at Kmart last. Something baby related probably. Oh yeah… a toilet training seat haha Trying to transition from potty to toilet and the one we had was not helping so we got a new one to try. Not much better…

    1. That teenage mess creeps in straight away!! I thought toddlers were messy?!? Toilet training was such a long time ago for my babes, I forget what it was like, messy I think?

  4. Am loving KMart and my brand spankin new $29 ottoman that matches by throw cushions and lounge #bargain

    I also really love your dipped yellow stool above – great find!

    1. I saw that ottoman while shopping in Kmart this week and was seriously tempted for a moment or two. It’s the right colours for our house too! xx

  5. Did you announce the winner yet? ?

    1. Hi Jess, yes we did. The post is here http://suzyb1.sg-host.com/kmart-styling-and-home-improvement-thursday-hit/
      An Instagram follower won, however you did receive a feature as well ? Thanks for playing along, we have another competition coming soon. xx

  6. Note the weight that you applied and the number of
    reps that you got on every and every physical exercise.

  7. Perfect recommendation. I agree that there are so many great finds at Kmart.

  8. Thanks for sharing the very nice blog post the great job.
