dd1 wants to splash paint her walls, well she actually only has 2 walls the other 2 are windows and closets. So when we get started will buy the really small tester cans of paint to speckle the walls then will buy a 10 x 10 carpet to lay over the current carpet that is at least 24 yrs old.

Before Christmas, I picked up an interestingly-shaped fallen tree branch, rubbed off the peeling bark,spray-painted it white, and with some old glittery ornaments had a cute tree for the family room.

Be quite sure that God will bless you and that the depths of your sufferings will be matched by the consolation reserved for you.

LewCas, I love that idea

When I want to redecorate without spending money, I rearrange pictures on the walls and sometimes move furniture around. Sometimes it just moving a few little things that can make a difference.

Happy face

As i love freecycle myself you can take anything and make it your own as here people just sit things out along the walk and put free as i have gotten some things an old hutch fixed it up and painted it looks good very country,wicker pieces redid those and did up country arrangements as you can also spray paint them to add color.Old clay planter pots paint them as they have many uses,old lace curtians that may be ripped cut good sections and redo your sofa pillows with covers of lace looks nice.Take windows small clean them up you can paint them place photo or photo arrange seal them together and you have photo frame.
