I found an old hunk o' veneer desk at a garage sale for $15. With some power tools, elbow grease and a couple coats of paint (along with shopping sewing and begging...) we turned the ugly desk into a play kitchen for our toddler.
We were tired of living with our builder grade kitchen (and faded cabinets) but didn't have the budget to completely overhaul things. We pinched every penny that we could, while still
giving the kitchen the more modern feel that we wanted. By painting the cabinets, laying our own backsplash tile, working with the counter top we had, building our own table, thrifting new accessories, and selling some of our old stuff, we were able to complete this whole reno for just over $850.
Many more photos along with a complete budget breakdown and links to all of the kitchen projects are available at http://www.aswellplacetodwell.com/2012/10/ki...
I am totally in love with Owls right now! I had to make a tree skirt this year with them on it. I used recycled wool sweaters mostly from garage sales, I created the design and used Adobe
Illustrator to make an SVG file so that I could cut them out using my cricut machine. I cut out heat n bond, Iron it to the sweater and hand cut the actual sweater. Then once the skirt is all made and the ruffle is sewn into place, I add on the owls. This is one of my favorite creations! I am so excited to be making christmas stuff already! These skirts are available at www.thelittlegreenbena.etsy.com

So cute! Owls aren't traditional Christmas decor, but I love it. That one with the little hat
My husband and I recently took on the daunting task of building our own farmhouse kitchen table. Surprisingly enough, once we got into it, it wasn't really that challenging. Thanks to
step by step plans from Ana White, we were able to construct our new table in just a couple of weekends. For the full how-to and many more pictures please visit http://www.aswellplacetodwell.com/2012/07/di...

Thank you! I love the new table. Even better that we made it.
By shopping my own house to repurpose unused art and updating a free dresser, I was able to revamp our guest room for only $10. Full details, before photos and more after photos can be found at http://www.aswellplacetodwell.com/2012/08/gu...

Thank you Kelly. You are the queen of mixing things together so I take that as a real compliment.
