Design on a Dime


By far, my favorite thing to spend money on is decorating my house. We moved into a new house in March and I have in my head exactly how I want each room to look. My goal is to take one room at a time and decorate it exactly how I want it.
The only problem is that my husband and I had to sit down recently and make out a very strict budget. The way the economy is going, we decided we should be saving more than we have been. I'm a bargain shopper anyway, so it's going to be fun to decide on inexpensive ways to achieve the looks I want.
I'm planning on posting these endeavors and any good outcomes. I'm sure there will be some things that don't turn out like I want, so you can learn from my mistakes. My current project is an upholstered headboard, so be on the look out for that.

I hear that...I'm wanting to repaint the entire inside of the house (I hate flat paint). I feel like bambino2 deserves a fresh new-smelling house. Hubby says I redecorate too much!

Alice - Painting the kitchen apple or avocado green is next on my list.

BB - We are making the headboard too. We'll see how that goes. I may be calling your husband if it's a disaster.
