What do you do when you have a room to transform on a minuscule budget? You Do It Yourself of course. But you also take into consideration the occupants of the room!
For the past two months I've been sharing various furniture makeover projects with you. And finally after all this sweat and toil, I am ready to show you the girls' mostly black and white bedroom in full.
I've included links to all the projects at the end of the post.
This next project was a vision I had in my mind involving this piece of wood you see below. Unfortunately things don't always come out looking as great as they do in your mind. So reality bit the dust on this one.
But being one to not give up so easily I persisted because necessity is the mother of invention. And so I am here to share with you how to make an easy rustic hook rack for your entryway. Because we all need someplace to hang our necessities.
I am so excited to be working on the girls' bedroom. We are adding different pieces to it each day. One of them is this old wood mirror which my son had gotten from a friend of his who was all set to throw it out. Lucky for me I've trained my kids well to look out for these hidden gems. And so he bought it home for me as a gift.
You can see below that the mirror was in pretty bad shape. It was all scratched up and needed to be revived, which I did with just a bit of paint.
It is the tenth of the month and that means it is time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. We get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Valentine's Day but this month we are really looking ahead to spring.
It may not be here yet, but that doesn't mean we cannot quickly add spring to our homes, by bring some flowers indoors - even if they are not real.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
I keep on saying I am finished with my Christmas decorations but really you know I 'm not. I'm never finished because there is just too much stuff to be repurposed and it seems to be right in front of me all of the time. Case in point what happened for this project.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Today I am back again with my dollar store crafting buddies. You may remember we did this a while back and I made a beautiful dollar store fall wreath. Well today I am going to show you how to make a Christmas craft with dollar store items.
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their dollar store finds.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
