a bit of inspiration when you are on a budget and using what you might
have in your own home...
I usually dry flowers from the garden and tree branches, using
our own nature to decorate is always cost effective
other items include old bookpages, moss from the dollar store
and even broken discarded pieces that I have found
in a trash pile at a yard sale...
I am just a simple girl at heart
who loves a clean and classic look
with some dramatic punches
you can always find old inexpensive tables at yard sales
that just need paint and a bit of sanding
juxtaposition is always a winner...
I added strips of linen that I had to these
99 cent glass candlesticks from the goodwill..
just a splash of paint and sanding will
transform an empty frame into
a show case for another piece on your walls
I will even use a piece of furniture that is missing
a door and drawers to showcase items
that I want to display in my home or at
Layers will always add such depth to your rooms
I am also quite fond of willow
which is very inexpensive yet gives texture
I even used old rope and ornaments
that I had in the garage for this vignette...
when I wanted a headboard and funds were low
I used this old cabinet door and mounted it to the exisiting frame
to create a rustic headboard for my loft
then I painted the opposite side so that I had
two different back drops when I needed a change
just unscrew and flip
I love that
Always follow your heart
I purchase what I love even if hubby can't
see the vision that I have in my mind..
this settee is still one of my favorite makeovers
that I have ever done
only because Mr. Dior thought I could not make it work...
no shame in my game right ladies...
Well to my favorite girls out there
