Chunky Knit Blanket 'Bling' Fixer Upper....

Don't you just love it when you stumble across a major BARGAIN!!!
And that is exactly what I found with this throw at Briscoes a few months back.
It was everything I love in a throw....
It looked like a hand knit in its heavy chunky gorgeousness.
It was creamy white.
(Even though I LOVE colour - I also LOVE neutrals)
And the price was outstanding -  
$159.95 - marked down to 59.95!!!
But there was just one little problem with it...
The bling metallic stripe was rose gold and my living space has gold accessories!

But I bought it anyway.
So you can see the problem here...
Gold and rose gold.

 So I foraged in the lace store box and found this pretty crochet style lace.
How perfect was that.  

 I stitched it on via the sewing machine...

And now have the perfect throw 
- with a little bling still showing through the lace.
Just enough to avoid the Rose gold and gold clash problem I had before.

PS:
Cushion also a bargain - sourced from Harvey Norman $10 Sale Bin.
