There is nothing I like more than to save money. It makes me a little giddy when I find a sweet deal on something I need, as opposed to just something I want. Today, I went to Faith Farm to find a bedside table for my son's room. No luck at all. But I did find some lanterns with potential, and they . . .
When we first looked at our new house, I loved the natural light that filled it. What I didn't like were all the light fixtures. Every one of them were builder-grade, and the cheapest ones at that. There were "pimple" light globes in the bathrooms, hallways and even our bedroom. Every . . .
The laundry room re-do is done!! In case you don't remember, because it was really not memorable at all, this is what it looked like last week. Boring. Bland. A little depressing. But now, after many days of work, and lots of energy spent, this is our new laundry room! We replaced the . . .

After seeing some of the treasures that other's have found, I find myself wishing that I lived closer to this or that place/blogger so I too could find . . .
I love to re-invent things. Whether it be an ugly chair, or a desk that has seen better days. Which is why, when we were looking for a new house, I didn't shy away from the ones that weren't "pretty".
