Around my home

First of all, my cousin Noelle (as pictured below) will be on America's Funniest Videos this Sunday!!!  I am so excited.  If you watch it, she is the one who does a flip on her bed and her buttox makes a huge hole in the wall :)

Now, onto my house :) 
I don't have entire rooms finished yet, but I thought I would give a sneak peak at some of the things I have been up to lately.

This is my Goodwill find for $4.  It is hanging on my newly painted, blue living room wall.

Another Goodwill find, for $.50!  I spray painted it with a few good coats of plum Krylon gloss.

$1.00 thrift store corner shelf, spray painted Bahama breeze Krylon gloss.  Vintage milk glass sits on the shelves.  This is also in my living room.

I used the same paint to refinish some vintage wooden candle holders.

We don't have room for bookshelves in Calebs room so I turned the top of his dresser into a shelf by using piggy banks for book ends.

My hallway has pictures hung in a straight line.  A little more difficult to do than hanging them randomly, but I think it gives it a clean look.

This is my favorite!  I found a shutter for $1.00 and spraypainted it, then added a fancy stencil.  I hung it over our bed in our grey bedroom :)

Hopefully, I can show you entire rooms soon.  I am working on pillows for my living room right now.  I have way too much fun doing this kind of stuff!
I hope you all have a happy weekend!!!

You are so crafty! I missed that gene entirely, somehow! I love the pictures in your hallway. I think I'll try that next time we have a hallway :)

Beautiful! I LOVE the shutter idea! We have a few old ones in our garage that I could fix up real easy. Great ideas :)
