or should BLOG-iversary!!
That's right! Today this lil' blog of mine (I'm gonna let it shine!) is TWO!!!!
I can't believe it has been two years - that means I have been married that long...
which we all knew from a couple months ago - but still!!
So Happy Blog-iversary to me!!
As I started this baby out with a craft/re-do, so shall I celebrate today with one!
I have been bit by the 'decorating bug'
No I don't know if it is a real thing to anyone else - it is to me.
The problem - absolute NUMBER ONE thing - is that redecorating or decorating at all for that matter GENERALLY costs some dolla' bills. I am so thankful that I was blessed with a craft/creative gene. I look all over the internet and in magazines for ideas and then I think of a way I can make something similar. Now, I would LOVE to show you my craft room like I did two years ago, but it isn't quite ready for the big reveal. Heck, even when I finally show ya the room - I'm sure it will still not be completed. Anyone who has a house, KNOWS that there is ALWAYS a work in progress =)
My recent overhaul is our spare bathroom.
This is what it looked like the day we bought the house - Halloween 2011
This is what it looked like 2 weeks later =)
Seriously - we did pretty awesome! I absolutely love the spare bath.
But now it is looking a little plain-jane. It just needs a little SOMETHING.
Enter Dollar Tree! No seriously - the ONLY way I'm decorating is if it is NOT costing me an arm and a leg -and ESPECIALLY because of my aforementioned gene!
First - I hung the shower curtain...well not first - I did that MONTHS ago.
I used the shower curtain from the old house...yes we only had ONE shower.
I seriously wish I would have posted pictures of that house, if for no other reason to share the layout!
Anyhow - I did these little projects for some added decor for about $4
Seriously - $4! you really can't beat that!
Here they are - all done my moi last night:
White flowers - left over from this project
small glass vase - used in our sand ceremony at our wedding
Valspar gold spray paint - already had for a different project that is still in the works...
greenery - Dollar Tree
Framed 8X10 mirror - Dollar Tree
glass 'beads' - left over from wedding centerpieces
jute/twine - hardware store: $2
I have some wall decor I made with the help of my Cricut E BUT I didn't get to hang them.
I'll show you the full tour of the bathroom tomorrow...hopefully =)
