Frugal Friday~

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday!

I can't believe it's the end of March already!  And Easter is here this weekend.  Spring has finally arrived.  (Well, it's felt that way around these parts for the last couple of days anyway.)

So I was feeling a bit springy this week, and this cute and clever butterfly wreath posted by Craftiments, really caught my eye.  So I'm letting it lead the way in my Frugal Round-up this week.

Working on the Entry Hall~

Today, I thought I'd share a little teaser to prove that we are, indeed, working on our entry hall as I mentioned in this post.  Here's what it looks like right now, more or less.  It's been tweaked a bit since this photo was taken, but not significantly.


Never fear!  I am leaving the accent wall I worked so hard on  (and shared on the Nate Berkus Show).  It's just that the space was looking a little tired to me and I thought it was about time to breathe some new life into it.

How to Make Your Own Industrial-Style Light Pendant for Less than $10~

I had the chance to be on Studio 5 last Thursday and to share a fun project for their IKEA +10 series.  The idea behind the series is to take an IKEA item, add only $10 in additional supplies, and repurpose it into an item with a completely different use.

For my item, I chose to use an IKEA Ordning silverware caddy.  And I decided to turn it into an industrial style light pendant.  The project was so simple...but turned out absolutely darling.

The Simplest of Lamp Updates~

The weather has turned warmer here. Spring is just about to make its appearance.   And with the warmer weather comes a desire to freshen up the house.  To make changes. 

Yesterday, my family went to Target to pick up a few items.  While I was there, I decided to check out some of the items from their new line of home goods called Threshold.  Have you seen these?  They're fabulous! 



I had been wanting to switch out the lampshades in my dining room for a while now. (Can you see them sitting on the white buffet?)  I like the shades that were in the room, but I was really ready for a change.   I just wasn't sure exactly how I wanted them to look...

until I saw these beauties.

Simple Window Treatment~

I love window treatments.  Not that a window can't look great without one.  But in my opinion, window treatments are a bit like jewelry.   Jewelry completes an outfit...window treatments complete a room.  And the loft bedroom would certainly not have been complete without the window treatment.



It was sooo easy to make...I'm going to tell you how I did it.
