Inspired by a planter spotted at West Elm, Lucy used three bowls snagged at the Dollar Store, two glasses and Gorilla Glue to make her fabulous recreation. A few succulents and the look is complete. For the entire how-to, head on over to Craftberry Bush.
It finally got below 100 degrees where I live (why do I live here?), and suddenly I have Fall Fever. I was on the hunt for easy and inexpensive fall decor ideas and found this luminescent beauty, made completely out of materials found at your Dollar store or around the house.
This oversized moss wreath sure is a doozy, don't you think? It'll blow your mind even more when you find out what the $1 wreath form is made out of... Care to wager a guess?
I'll be the first to admit that the moment I enter a party store, I kind of lose my mind. SO MUCH STIMULI! Nearly irresistible stimuli, too. In a matter of minutes, my cart might be filled to the brim with seemingly "necessary" decorations, my original game plan (and budget) tossed right out the window. But there's a way around this and it starts with a "D".
Is there no end to what this girl can create from a Dollarama day trip? Once again, Karen (remember, my virutal bff from Canada, and author of The Art of Doing Stuff), has proven just how easy it is to convert a cart full of random $1.00 objects into chic, functional pieces of home decor. It's simple brilliance, my dear!
Once upon a time, way back when, I became enraged with my ugly rental kitchen. Observe the horror:
I cursed it, I cried, I shook my fists at it. Then I did what everybody does (surely?), I looked for a solution on the internets.
What I found was Curbly. Inspired by the spirit of Curbly Daring-Do I figured out a solution, and posted pictures of it here..
Three (three!) years have passed. My temporary contact paper solution has withstood all kinds of shenanigans and is, I suspect, INVULNERABLE to anything but Robot Laser Eyes.
BUT, it is a New Year, a new decade even, and that always prods the part of my brain that likes things NEW and CLEAN and SHINY. So I turned a beady and critical eye to my kitchen. And decided it was time for a change.
So I did this.
