Have you ever been to one of these cheapie little dollar stores and see a piece of art that is kinda cute? That’s what happened to me one day while in a store called Maxway. I’m not sure if they’re all over the U.S., but they are in Florida. I stop in from time to time, just to see what they have. I fell in love with this leopard canvas print. The only thing is that it had this extremely shiny clear coat over the top of it. That made it look so cheap! But, I still loved it. I put it in my cart, and continued to walk around a bit. The entire time, I was trying to think how in the world I could transform this piece to make it look “expensive”. Then a light bulb went off! I could spray paint it, then rough it up a bit with a little sandpaper. If my plan failed, it was only $9.Continue Reading
First, we started with a stack of pallets. I think we purchased 15 and they were $2 each (I ended up only needing about 6 of them). The initial plan was to make a back to the benches, but after looking at the patio, we didn’t think that was feasible. The back would have ended up leaning against the screen, maybe causing it to tear. Continue Reading
Hola! Hope everyone is doing well. I won’t make up any excuses this time, because I really don’t have any. I would like to say that I really appreciate all of you who have stuck by me through this unplanned blogging hiatus. I have been active on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to follow me there. Let’s get to this DIY project!
If you don’t know by now, I’m giving my patio a much needed makeover. BUT, I refuse to spend a lot of money on furniture and decor that will be primarily in the sun all day. I live in Florida and it gets extremely hot here. No patio furniture is safe in Florida. I have a lot of projects and makeovers coming your way. Continue Reading
I have a super simple DIY for you guys! So I’m minding my business, scrolling through Pinterest, when I see this image. How cool, right? It looked pretty easy, so I thought I’d give it a try. I used the ampersand sign because I love the way it looked, but you can also do letters, numbers, whatever you like! I am working on a hashtag art piece for my closet room. This project was so inexpensive and virtually under $3 per piece of art. I purchased the thumb tacks from the Dollar Store for $1 each. The canvas is from Ross. It came in a set of 6 for $6.99.Continue Reading
As you may have noticed, leather sleeves are popping up everywhere & on everything. I wanted to join in on the festivities, but didn’t want to spend a lot, since this is a trendy piece (and well, I am frugal). I was looking through my closet, and noticed I had this Old Navy cropped trench that I hadn’t worn lately. Then, I Continue Reading
