    Default I promised pictures and here they are.

    This is my super cheap( almost free ) decorating makeover of our breakfast nook.

    The wall was all mirrors and nothing was on them so I did all of this. The window frame came free from my dad. Some of the knicknacks I had and the rest I made.

    Dh made the thremistat cover for me on my birthday.

    The tiny doll is the first doll I ever made and she is stuffed with cotton balls becuase I didn't have anything else to stuff her with.

    The pillow was made from a scrap from the shower curtain I made last week and is stuffed with rags.

    The black boxes are left over from christmas, I just painted them with cheap craft paint.

    The bread loaf pan on the wall came right out of my kitchen cabenit ( I hope I don't need to make bread anytime soon. LOL)

    The mason jar light was a flour container that was on top of my fridge. I just had dh drill a whole into it for the cord.

    The twigs over the frame where a christmas decoration , I just took the holly off of it. The twigs were originaly from the yard.


    Does anybody see anything they would change or add???

    My next project is to make a farm house table w/ benches to replace the one that is there. I got that one for free and the chairs are all comeing apart.

    I already made a bench to practice and I know I can do it. Its just a matter of buying the lumber. I can't buy the lumber becuase of my spending freeze

    Wow!!! I love it! I'm not usually a fan of that style, because so many people clutter it up soooo much! But this is gorgeous! Well done!

    I think you are very talented...people pay good money for what you made out of items you already had in your home..
