because i had nothing else to worry about or do this weekend................(insert sarcastic grin)....
i decided to spruce up our guest bathroom in preparation for my surgery-week visitors. Yay! i can't wait for my mom, aunt and cousin to get here tomorrow night!
this was really quick and i did it all during 3 nap times.
it was also really cheap.
wall paint: Home Depot $5.00/gal. (in the returned color section, love it!)
frames: Goodwill $12.00
birds: Micheals $3.00
spray paint: Micheals $5.99
flowers: my sister's wedding reception $ free
grand total: $26.00
so that's what i started with this weekend.
builder's white walls,
white cabinets (painted a few months ago)
a gold shower curtain,
a vase of silk flowers.
i perused the section at Home Depot where people return paint that they didn't decide to use (that's a nice way of saying they didn't like the color). hey, it's all the better for me! i got this gorg color for only $5.00. Woot! it was an expensive kind of paint too, so it went on great and only needed one coat.
then, to goodwill i went and picked up these frames:
i painted them with indoor/outdoor white semi-gloss spray paint
and glued those darling birds on with hot glue
next, i traced the frames on paper, cut them out, and arranged them on the wall with painter's tape
this technique saves lots of time, because i just nail over the paper and then rip it off
continued for all frames
glued a stem of berries and another bird to the mirror
and all for less than $30!
