If the buzzwords you traditionally associate with Home Depot include lumber, potting soil, drop cloths, or rock salt, have we got an eye-opener for you. Since most people head to Home Depot for a specific, and usually mundane reason, you’ll love checking out our fun, unexpected finds from the mass retailer below.
This simplistic Scandi-inspired carafe would look just as great on your dining table as it would on your nightstand. It also fits perfectly inside a refrigerator door, meaning your beverage of choice will always be chilled to your liking, while the oak lid ensures it stays fresh.
This pretty, graphic rectangular rug would make the perfect addition to any entryway, kitchen, or bath. The pops of fuchsia, navy, and yellow make the piece look a lot more expensive than it really is, so if it gets worn from too much use, you can replace it with minimal guilt.
Impress your guests when you cart their beverages outside on these chic marbled trays. They’re large enough to fit several small tapas plates, as well. Alternately, they can be used to display your favorite design magazines or serve as a catchall for keys and mail near the front door.
This trio of glass apothecary jars is a steal at under $45! The decor possibilities are endless, too; fill with your favorite candy, seashells, wine corks, or collectibles. You can choose to separate them or place them together for a more anchored statement.
The size of this incredible starburst is impressive considering the price, and the fact that it could be used as wall decor, or a (non-working) ceiling fixture. It also comes equipped with the proper bracket for ease of hanging.
If you don’t have the space (or green thumb) for a proper herb garden, this diminutive garden-in-a-can sits atop your windowsill for the ultimate in ease and freshness. If mint isn’t your jam, you can also choose from basil, cilantro, or sage. Added bonus: It’s organic!
Stumbling across this elegant faux mink ottoman on Home Depot’s site was an unexpected surprise. Place two next to each other for an impromptu coffee table or simply use as a footrest while binge-watching your favorite shows.
9. Black and Gold Chandelier, $186
Forget what you think you’d find at a big box store; this black and gold chandelier looks like it’s straight out of a high-end showroom. Equipped with 5 Edison bulbs and an industrial, adjustable black chain, this would work just as well on your back porch as it would over a kitchen island.
10. Copper Hammered Cookie Jar, $25.83
This hammered copper cookie jar doesn’t just look pretty—it features special sealed cover technology that ensures it will keep your food fresher than a traditional storage vessel.
