Don’t forget to enter my Frog Tape giveaway that is running through November 30!
Wednesday I had the opportunity to spend about an hour in B&N; Books looking through the Home Decor section for books I might want to add to my inspiration library. (I then go home and buy them used on Amazon…) Anyway, as I was looking through the books, something hit me. These are not very realistic. I want to look at a Home Decor book that is beautiful, inspirational, AND real. I mean, how many of you have a bedroom like this?
Or a bathtub like that? Or a kitchen like this one…oh my. Let me stop a minute while I wipe the drool off my chin.
And the way Donna from Funky Junk Interiors made a magazine worthy bedroom out of…well, junk.
I have now learned that, although I love my books & magazines, when I want a real life thrifty solution I need to hit my blog reading list. You girls know what it’s like to have $0 budget and to live in a home that falls a little (or a lot) short of being your dream. You know how to make something gorgeous with Mod Podge, fabric, a glue gun, or some paint. You dumpster dive, dig through thrift stores, bargain at yard sales, and turn your nose up at things that are over priced.
