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..

Thanks everyone, I need a smile today! You are all too kind.

For some reason the paint on my walls look brighter then it really is. I guess it's becuase it's usualy kinda dark in my house but the flash on my dad's camera is really good. I wish we had a sky light for some natural light.
