I know I have stated how much I enjoy the new website pinterest. I have found many fun recipes, crafts, decorating ideas and other random things. I have been sitting on many ideas with our house currently being on the market.
A weekend ago I was struggling with the current housing situation. I feel like we are in limbo. Half of our stuff is packed up to 'stage' the house and we are essentially in a holding pattern that wasn't feeling promising. So I decided I was going to do a few of the things I was holding off on to help me feel at home again. Considering everything I did for the last 9 months was done or not done to the house to keep it 'staged' and not personalized.
So in an effort to keep my sanity, the very little I had, I decided I couldn't keep spending the weekends at open houses. So we went garage sale-ing for the first time this season. I had lots of finds, and we went late enough in the day, almost everything we picked up was 50% off! So even bigger win. Then I went over to the thrift store, who also does 50% off on Saturdays, looking for specific items to make projects found on pinterest.
This is a veggie basket, most veggies I buy by the bag would last longer if given proper air flow and not kept in the bag sitting on top of the microwave. So I found this for planter basket for $3 at the thrift store, hung it in the kitchen and Bazing! It's perfect!
I had the bowls painted for months and for some reason the white circles had me struggling. I finally decided to go try it free hand and see how it worked, I also had to do this early on morning while the big girls were sleeping, since they like to help, a lot. After I did one, I was happy enough to keep going without a circle template, and finally finished my project in minutes. Wonderful Husband drilled the hold and screwed them together for me, and I planted them!
