Recently I’ve come across a few blogs about thrifting and what people can do with a $1.00 item to spruce up their house. Life as a thrifter shares so many wonderful ideas for decorating on on a budget and everything she does looks completely unique and chic. The Schmitt House has inspired me to re-paint my family room which has just thrilled my husband to pieces – I’m including him in the plans and the work! Cara Schmitt painted a feature wall red and she loved it when she first painted it but grew tired of it. I fell in love with the colour terra cotta 5 years ago and decided to paint our kitchen and family room this colour. My husband told me in 5 years I would tire of the colour, here we are 5 years later and I’m tired of of the colour. He’s right and I’m wrong – betcha Cara’s husband told her the same thing. I’m adding another category to my blog – thrifting and what I do with my finds. I’ll start out with my living room – I’m going to paint my pumpkin room and show before and after pics. Here’s a few before pics of the pumpkin room – don’t hold your breath for the after pics – it may be a while.
Cara thought her mantle was busy – take a look at this – I’m not even sure how this happened – there is still a Christmas decoration up there and how about that lego ship – my son decided it looked pretty good up there along with the art he drew and shaped into a ball… Keep you posted..
