I have a confession. I spend WAY too much time in blogworld! It's kind of like my "retail therapy". Without getting out of the house. (and without spending any cash!). I live in this dream world right now imagining what our new house will look like. I dream of it having tons of character. I also love the idea of being able to incorporate our style into it by ways of RENOVATION. I know that sounds kind of crazy. But, new homes tend to lack character. So, I tend to be attracted to older homes with potential rather than brand spankin new ones.
As I was blog hopping this morning I came across this Kitchen before and after and fell in love! It's over at Eclectically Vintage. She did such a good job on this 1960's kitchen. Check out a couple of pictures...
Shades of Light. It comes in several colors. I'm not sure which is my favorite. But, I think this one would look JUST RIGHT on my end table.
Oh, and while I am dreaming, does anyone have $50,000 we can borrow? Cause I really want this house.
I love to find cheaper ways to do expensive things. Whether this be through Thrift-store-shopping or DIY decorating, I find a way to get it done. I NEVER shop in the regular priced area of a store. If I do happen to see something I love that is regular priced, I wait til it goes on sale. OR, i make it my own version of it. I love to paint and do crafts. However, being a mother of two and a night-shift nurse, I have very little time to do it. We are also in a rental home while we search for my forever home. So, I am LOVING the blog world right now as I find ideas for my new home. Be sure to follow me so I will know I'm not just blogging to myself. :-)
