Have you ever had a particular item that you love but felt like it needed a little something?
That’s how I was with this old door. It’s really half of a door, because hubby cut it in half and we used the other half for a shelf in my living room.
Still, I liked the small size and knew it would be a fun piece propped up against a wall.
Originally I stood it in my craft room. I liked it, but even then I felt as though it needed a ‘little something’.
Recently I bought a new cabinet for my craft room. The door had to go. Lately, I have been decorating a guest room in our basement.
I thought it would be a great place for the door. Still, it needed ‘a little something’.
After my visit to Vernal last week I saw something that would work just perfect.
We stopped at a little shop in town and I spied a sweet burlap bag planter hanging on the wall. It had no price, so I asked the shop owner how much? She said, “oh, that’s a special order, I just finished it this morning”. She then went on to say, “It costs $42, but I do have 1 bag left for $10 if you’d like to buy that”.
Like? Love is more like it. . .SOLD!
I also bought the French script Daisy for $2.50 and the cluster of muslin flowers for $2.99. I was being
cheap, frugal and didn’t want to pay the $6 for the burlap flower so I thought I would make my own. The other day I ran into Hobby Lobby. They had the rose and with a 40% off coupon I thought, go for it! A $1 brick of oasis from the dollar store and I made my cute planter for less than $20.
Perfect on my rustic door!
Still it needed ‘a little something’. Oh yes, my chippy pink chair!
Now some of you might be thinking that this chair needs a makeover. Not me! No sir ree Bob, love it just the way it is!
I quickly ran up and snagged it out of my sewing room.
Better, much better. Still, it needed ‘a little something’.
Oh yes, my sweet pillow that was one of my first give away wins. This darling was made by Brenda from Shabby Cats and Roses.
This is actually the back of the pillow. The front has a cute Winter scene. I love it when the back is cute enough to be the front!
Yup, that’ll do! Just the ‘little something’ it needed!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
