I think I may have found something new...maybe a new hobby

I wanted a sideboard for my dining room but I didnt like the prices that I have seen at some furniture stores. Then I started looking online for some alternatives. Then I found this craze of thrifty decorating and trash to treasure. I am familiar with trash to treasure because I did a shabby chic meets safari theme in the girls room and I love it. I found headboards for really cute...actually matching. My husband and I refinished them and I am proud of the work we done. My mother came to visit and didnt realize that I actually refinished some ugly finds on the side of the road. Well now I am on a mission to find something to to make a sideboard. I was thinking a dresser. Maybe adding some longer legs, painting it and changing the hardware. I will keep you posted. I have to finish my dining room, family room, my son's and both upstairs bathroom. I have the downstairs powder room just about finished. This my new interest....Thifty decorating!!! YAY! I am so excited. Yes, I am a nerd.

I love thrifting and once you get into it, you become somewhat addicted. LOL. Have you tried craigslist? They offer lots of goddies!

Oh please keep us updated. I have a few things I would like to re-do but don't know how. I love turning trash into treasure.

I havent had much luck with craigslist in my area. Sucks huh?

My husband told me to slow my roll. Since we will be moving AGAIN in the summer. I don't need to start too many new projects. So, I decided to wait a little while on my sideboard but I am on a mission for lamps. I seem someone by old ugly lamps and make them beautiful. Since everyone need new side table lamps, that's my new mission. I will keep you posted and make sure I take lots of pictures.

I know I have discovered the only cheap cost efficent lamps are the ugly ones!!!!! Please show a sista how to re do some lamps, I'm not paying no 50-100 dollars for a lamp. Call me cheap, but i just can't do it.
