I opened my email today after work. There was one from Pottery Barn and one from Maine Cottage. Of course I had to see what's new! As I was looking around I found several things that I liked. I really can't afford to buy anything. I'm "Just Looking!" I did see several things that I know I could make for less! Check them out. Maybe you'll see something you like too?
I'm thinking - blackboard paint on a piece of wood?
Green glass. Hmmm... WalMart? Garage Sale? Thrift store?
Grosgrain ribbon stitched on plain white KMart drapes? Stencils on bedding?
Funky fabric sewn to ready-made curtains, sheets, shower curtain...?
Why not just paint this instead of paying for someone to glue the little pieces of wood together? Of course I could always cut up little pieces of balsa wood, paint them, then glue them to something...
Rhoda did this in her bathroom! She just framed out the big mirror she already had with molding!
Think I'll take the camera out in the yard and see if I can find anything green... Walgreens can blow the photos up for me...
I'm thinking rubber stamps here. Could I do this?
Now my favorite!
Flea market frames! Cover a board with batting and linen and stick it in an old painted frame!
Give me a few cans of spray paint and I could have a Maine Cottage look too!
Keep looking around and I'm sure you'll find some things you can do for LESS!
