The hunt

Cost: Under $25.00

This piece is simple, but with a pop of color for the center piece you can make this look however you wish. When I get some time I will paint the legs of the saw horse to match my chairs. I knew the type of dining table I wanted and I knew where to buy it, unfortunately the cost was not so appealing $199.00.  As you can see in the pictures posted above, I came pretty close? I made this piece fit my personality and my style, with money still in the bank :))

Supplies from Lowe’s:

  1. 2- 2X4 for the saw horses $4.00 
  2. Sawhorse Brackets $7.38
  • All-purpose
  • Galvanized
  • Rust resistant finish.
  • Flanged nail hold for quick disassembly

 

3.  Pine wood slab thats 8 Feet in length and 2 feet in width.  $10.00

 

Does it scream you?

D.I.Y Projects also known as Do it Yourself, is an easy way to steer clear from those hefty price tags and budget busters. My friends have nicknamed me the “Thrifty Girl”, I tend to pinch pennies just to save my hard-earned cash. Re-using what already exists is the best way to go about designing a space. Recycling not only is good for the environment around you but it is also great on your bank account. Travel around to some local Thrift stores, Antique stores, and Goodwill stores in your neighborhood and pick out pieces that spark your eye. I do recommend going to your weekend flea market & yard sales for some steals, it’s so much easier to haggle with people here. Remember anything that was once used for a single purpose can now be used for multi-purposes. As you will start to learn in all my posts D.I.Y projects are SUPER FUN & EASY! You are making a specific piece scream you, all your personality in one piece. Embrace your personality in your design, it’s all about you. If you have a taste for fashion, style and a creative mind projects like this are for you!

A life in color

Imagine a life full of creativity, a world in which colors flow endlessly through your mind. I live in that world full of idea’s flying past my eyes.  On occasion I will accomplish one of these crazy idea’s that flow through my mind. Why is it that human’s have a bucket list or a list of dreams or a to do list yet no one gets them all done? Have we lost our ambition & motivation in life? We should not live day-to-day to be overwhelmed by stress or anxiety. It seem’s that in this day and time people live to work, yes if only it were that easy not to. Money does not buy happiness but it does make life A LOT easier. So many people have told me that you only live once, you only have the chance to do everything you ever dreamed of once. Life is all about taking chances & taking risks. Get the most out of this world and a life that is absolutely remarkable. Work in an environment that brings joy & happiness, where you wake up every morning and you are excited for what your day brings. Never look back with regret.
