Crafty Mama II

Need some ideas for home decor?? Check these out!

Had I known I would ever be sharing this information, I would have taken a 'before' picture of these furniture pieces. But nonetheless, imagine a nightstand dug out of my parents basement, that was a nice dark wood tone, but painted over with chipped white glossy paint, and no fixture on the drawer.

Find a can of neutral paint in the attic of your new apartment, and pull a fixture off another item in your parents basement... and for $0.00 you have a brand new night table! :)

Now, if you're anything like me- your husband is a carpenter :) Using some scraps from his last job, he created this amazing toy box for our kids! I painted it using the same paint I found in our attic. So yet again, another piece of furniture for $0.00

When my family moved into our modest little apartment, we had nothing on the walls. So we created some picture collages with some more scraps that my husband picked up from work and some paint we pilfered from my parents basement. Decorations for the living room?? FREE :)

How do you recycle pieces in your home?
