How often do you notice the ground that you're walking on? Not often? That's because you haven't been on these beautiful repurposed garden paths! Get inspired to create your own little path of happiness at home.
We bought this home 2 years ago & all along I had a vision for this room but..... with so much to get to & decorate I had to put this room on the back burner for a bit. So instead I
re-used the furniture I had & made it work for the short term.
Slowly, I began adding in the pieces that I wanted & finally bought the sectional a few months ago. I don't think I am alone in saying that, sometimes we want so much for our home to look a certain way, the way we see in magazines but we forget that these
things take time. A room that is layered & filled with items and details that you LOVE evolves, over time. I had to tell myself this a few times:).
This family room makeover was done on a ridiculously SMALL budget.
I do believe that making your home pretty doesn't have to break the bank.
I shopped thrift stores, flea markets, outlet stores,I repainted, recovered, sewed, re-purposed, made and built things myself
I found some old Blue prints scrunched up in a dresser we bought to makeover. See more at www.facebook.com/gypsybarn. After I opened them, had them scanned at a high resolution, pulled
them into a digital imaging program and fixed all the rips and creases, I enhanced the font to make them readable again and had them printed to size to fit these p;d windows that fantastically enough, we salvaged from an old Boat house a few months back. So now the prints on how to build this old boat, can live on for many many more years to come!
These gift tags are so affordable and easy to make! Grab some scissors or a tag paper punch, some old cereal boxes and get to work! I used them on faux gifts to decorate the house with. For the full how-to, check out my blog post!
