So this weekend we aren’t travelling, we aren’t hosting any guests, and we aren’t completely broke. This is a perfect storm for sitting at home and doing nothing CRAFTS! I have some planned of course…the ones with the least set-up required and the least shopping involved.
You can take a look my Pinterest Board to see all the details we are dreaming of, but here are some highlights of what I hope to get to by Sunday:
Dip Painting Wine Bottles for Water
Nailhead and Ribbon Trim for the bookshelves
I think with a few free nap-time hours and about…$35 bucks I can do both of these this weekend! Who knows, I might even think of something else!
What are all you guys out there doing this weekend? Leave a comment, and have a good time!
So, since the design by-week (the week with no payday) is over I was around town looking for the best way to spend this week’s budget. Well, I soon realized that I had never set a budget, so I’d better not buy anything quite yet. If it’s between an end table and diapers, I’d choose diapers any day! So, I had to settle for taking pictures and storing them up for later. I’ll show you a peek of all the things I saw and drooled over!
First, this little sailboat — perfect for the “Neverland Big Boy’s Room” we are creating for Jayden
Here’s that little guy now, who will be trying to play with destroy the boat….
Then I ran across this cute little sign on a piece of driftwood!
I snagged it just in time for National Boss Day. Perfect pairing to a bottle of wine and a basket of chocolates! No, we’re not sucking up…we REALLY like our boss at work! Plus, who wouldn’t dish out 7 bucks for this little hand-painted doo-dad?
Deeper into this fun store Inlet Queens, I found this little ottoman!
What do I need an ottoman for? A time-out chair? A yoga prop? A colorful addition to our boring beige living room? You need to be asking yourself what don’t I need an ottoman for?
On my way out I almost missed this “Market Special”!
These two end tables were just $25 each! A beautiful weathered chartreuse with a creamy center on top. Just gorgeous. I will be doing some serious measuring when I get home. We need some fun color STAT!
That’s all for now, but don’t worry — I’ll be (window) shopping like a maniac all weekend. I’ve decided to finish the nailhead shelves this weekend and look for some ways to bring in color to the living room too. I hope the thrift gods are happy this weekend.
