Here are a few projects that I did to help me on my way.
First up was the window above the kitchen sink. It didn't have any blinds or curtains. I wanted a way to give us some privacy, but still let the light in. I found this idea through Pinterest, and made a few adaptations. I got the napkins, tension rod, and rings from Target. I LOVE how it turned out and it was SO easy. No sewing, gluing, or cutting involved. Total cost was $10.
Second, I was looking for a way to store my jewelry. I was using a TINY little box that my brother Ben made for me for Christmas probably 15 or 16 years ago. While I love the sentimental value that it holds, and I would never get rid of it, I needed something that would hold a little more. I found this idea through Pinterest and put my own twist on it. I got the hoops and lace from my wonderful mother. I painted the hoops bronze (from paint I already had) to add a little color and then I got a glass bottle to stack my bracelets on. Total cost was $1 (for the glass bottle). I love how it looks and my jewelry is so much more organized now!
