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.
I opted to go for something other than a traditional wreath on our front door for Halloween this year. Instead, I used some scraps that we had hanging around in the garage and a little skeleton garland to create this 'Keep Out' door hanging.
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.

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...
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...
We've been working on finishing our basement for a couple of years (what a loooong process!!). We started with just studs and have hung drywall, tapped, mudded, painted, etc, etc. This
office space is one of the first completely finished and decorated spaces in our newly finished basement. It's a small space, but we managed to fit in enough shelving and storage so that it can hold everything we need it to and still be fully functional. I love how bright and cheery it is, even though it's in a slightly dreary basement.
