|The lighting in this room used to be this dull light. Well, I was talking to a friend of mine telling her I wanted to put a chandelier in there and she said, "I have one in my basement you can have."|
|She had this sweet number in her basement that she purchased at the thrift store for $3.00! So, it became mine. Thanks Cathi!|
|I took all the crystals off (gave the to my mom) because I am not a crystals gal. Sprayed it black and it was as good as new.|
|Took down my old light and put the new on up, all by myself.|
|So this was my room after light was up.|
So you say Carrie, I don't feel like painting, let's go to my second room. You could give your bathroom a make over. Bathrooms are easy because they are such a small space. I decorated my master bathroom for under $60 and that is with some new towels.
|You can also display jewelry in your bathroom. I use glass vases to display my bracelets. The metal basket was in my kitchen holding nothing useful. Make-up basket in the middle, just reorganized- needed desperately.|
|Add a new shower curtain. I actually don't need a shower curtain , these are glass sliding doors. I just like the texture a shower curtain adds. T. J. Maxx on clearance $16.00. I had this full length mirror already. Every one should have one to check out the front and the back!|
|Adding a new rug in your bathroom can make a great difference. This rug was $14.00 at T. J. Maxx. My mom hooked me up and made my curtain. Material for that was $4.00.|
|I usually only have my mercury pieces out at Christmas, but I changed my bathroom to gray and neutral tones, so I thought these would work great around my tub. I love the silhouette is oh my husband when he was little.|
|These are more pieces I had around the house. Also, you need a magazine when in the tub.|
When I am decorating a room I try to use things around the house I already have. You really don't need to buy more stuff, just rearrange the things you have. Also, shop around at places like T.J. Maxx, Marshall's, and Home Goods you really do get more for your money. That's why I show you the prices, even at Target (which I love) you are going to pay a lot more and not get these type of products.
I want to thank all of you for your support with the Circle of Moms Fashion and Beauty Contest.
