Thrifty finds, DIY, and a soon to be Home Reno...

Welcome!

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. :-)

Piano Bench gets funky...

There once was a girl who lived in a thrift store. Ok, ok...she didn't LIVE in the thrift store. But, she went so often that the employees knew her and her children by name. But, this story is about her.  It's about another girl. A little girl with 4 skinny legs and a belly that could be filled with little treasures. She lived in the thrift store too. She really did. But, not for long...

Here she is when she arrived at her new home. Sad, scratched and her belly was full of some sort of waxy material that I had to get a paint scraper after.

But, with a little bit of love, spray paint, and fabric, she became a cute whimsical little girl who will live at the foot of a special 6 year olds bed...
