Quick Fix #2: Affordable Art

In light of reusing and being green, I dug up some old frames and sprayed them black (of course). Next, I just photocopied pictures out of my Newport Mansions book and framed them.

This corner of my apartment is starting to come together. I have to go out and buy a full-length mirror today at Kirklands to finish yesterday's project and will report back later.

Quick Fixes

I'm officially on a 3-week vacation which means 3 uninterrupted weeks of PROJECTS! Today I was working on dressing up a pedestal table I got from Target months ago. 

Before. Borring!
(Check out Higgins walking away in disapproval.)

I had a few lamps lying around the hosue so I thought I'd throw one up there. First, I tried this one. I bought this a while ago have have been trying to convince myself that I like it ever since. 

First it was white, then I decided there needed to be more contrast with the wall so out came the black spray paint.....eh, I still hate this lamp. Not my style.

Then, I remembered this old lamp I had in the bedroom. I stole the lampshade from the lamp above-better. 


Next, I'm going to get a full-length mirror from Kirklands, spray it gold, and hang it from the wall with black grosgrain ribbon. (But that can wait until tomorrow-the Pats are on in 45 min!)

Xmas Wish List

When I was little, I used to get yelled at for saying this but:

I want.

Like Mother....

For all those who fear they are turning into their mother, at least mine's got style!

"Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking "wow, you're ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career."-Derek Zoolander

Christmas already???

I blinked and it's a week into December. How did this happen?? Since I can't fight time, I decided to roll with it and get festive. Here's the wreath I pimped today after work that got from Target.
