The holiday season always seems to get my "Artsy Fartsy" imagination flowing. Here are a few projects on the cheap:
I bought a simple frame from the $1 store, spray painted the glass with chalkboard paint, and painted the frame in my fav blue. All for a dollar! I plan on writing the weeks menu when the chalkboard paint is dry. I love how it adds something to our unsightly apartment 70's kitchen.
I've had this lamp all through my college dorm days and was in need of a makeover. I grabbed some fabric glue and my favorite Amy Butler pattern... "tah dah" beautiful new lamp in minutes. I love love love how you can still see the texture of the old lampshade through the new fabric. Beautimos!
I am pretty much obsessed with shutters. Ross and I are renters therefore no paint= no color. This is where the shutters come in- color and architecture. My first shutter was bought for $5 at my favorite antique store. After some scrubbing, I now use it to display some of my jewelry. The earrings are hung from the slats and I bought simple S-hooks to hand the necklaces. In our living room shutters flank the mantle and add that pop of color. Stay tuned to see how I used the shutters to display Christmas cards. Did I mention I like blue?
I hope you enjoyed my frugal finds!
