Here's to the next 200 posts!
So today I wanted to share with you all a few fun and inexpensive ideas to pretty up your walls.
First of all, if you haven't discovered these next blogs, you will thank me for introducing you. The Vintage Moth, The Graphics Fairy , and Vintage Printables are all blogs that share hundreds of images...for free! I have found amazing images on these blogs. And all you have to do is print them out and frame. VOILA! My cute little bird egg prints are just one example of the great things you can find.
One of the easiest ways I've found to make something look finished and intentional in decorating is to add fabric. Now before you go thinking that adding fabric is adding $$, let me give you a few ideas. If you're anything like me, and you probably are if you are reading this blog, you enjoy changing out your decor every once in a while. My advice is to hold on to old curtains, or tablecloths, or sheets when you move on to something else. They almost inevitably come in handy.
Of course, if you don't have a stash of old curtains, you can pick up fabric inexpensively by purchasing remnants or using your coupons...(JoAnn's always has good coupons!) All of this said, let me show you today's Frugal OCD (Obsessively Consumed with Decorating) project.
This is my closet-home-office I mentioned in Tuesday's post. The picture is cut in close because the closet is still missing drywall (just keeping it real). Until it is finished I have this little table that fits right inside and holds my antique computer and printer. Under the table was looking pretty junky with the mammoth hard drive and speakers that this ancient computer uses. So I decided to cover it up! I used less than two yards of this great fabric and simply staple gunned it to the apron of the table, pleating it every 8 inches or so. Easy peasy...and much better looking than the mess underneath!
Have Frugal Friday decorating ideas? Let me know!
And before I go...my fabulous and amazing bloggy friend Kasey is hosting an incredible giveaway to celebrate her 200th post. Hop over and congratulate her!
Have a great weekend and a happy Easter~
In bedrooms (of course!)
The Princess' room...
The boys' room...
In the living room...
Pillows are a great way to bring a cozy feeling to a room, and to keep it looking "up to date" without investing a lot of money.
Mirrors are a wonderful way to bring light and the illusion of space to a room.
Don't feel like you have to hang all your mirrors on the wall. Mirrors look great simply propped against the wall as well. A large mirror adds substance to an otherwise small piece of furniture.
Just make sure that the mirror reflects something pleasant. For instance, I snapped a pic of my favorite mirror below because I loved the "still life" effect of it framing my entertainment armoire. (Don't look too closely...the mirror needed dusting.)
Mirrors don't have to be expensive to add a lot of personality. I purchased the mirror below but it could be made very inexpensively by simply gluing small tin tiles to a prepurchase frameless mirror.
Now go round up your mirrors and lighten up your space!
Have a great Wednesday~
This is one of my favorite rooms by designer Heather Chadduck. I *heart* this picture beyond words. And one of the things I love the most is the numbers on her chairs.
