My time has been filled with time consuming projects that are not cute. But some other things have required all or my spare time. So while you wait for a "fresh" project here are some random projects.
Some cheap decorating ideas:
In our guest room, I could barely afford a decent new mattress and box springs but wanted a cute head board. I found these great shutter doors (they were old closet doors that my sister-in-law removed and was throwing away. Throwing away! I took them. I didn't know what I was going to do with them, just that I was going to do something. So they are my new headboard. I need to paint over the nails near the top. Someday I might paint them and distress them. But for now, this is it.
Also, since I am cheap. I found the chair next to the bed in the IKEA "as-is" section. I love this section. The chair was almost $15.00. It is a ladder-back chair. Except in this room it is not a chair, it is a bedside table. I draped an extra blanket over the back of the chair. I love this chair. I wouldn't like it much as a chair, but I love it as a table. I have a bit of a chair fetish. One cannot ever have enough cool, old, mismatched chairs.
Another Cheap decorating idea:
I bought these clocks at IKEA for $9.99. I cut the letters in Vinyl and made a fun wall.
I did work on this project this week, I know it does you absolutely no good until next Halloween but it was a project this week!
I just bought a black sweatsuit. Pearly White paint and a tube of glow-in-the-dark paint. I used chalk to draw on the bones then painted them with the pearly white. After the white dried I outlined it with the glow-in-the-dark.
I have some other projects lined up. I will get them posted more frequently, I promise! I will get the table up next.
