Thrifty Thursday: Metallic Accents

You may have noticed that, metallic- any- thing- is all the rage at the moment.

Well if you are interested in recreating this trending look- for less.
Here's what you will need:

Gold or silver metallic spray paint
(Krylon & Rustoleum make great products and colors)
Take a trip to your local thrift store or Goodwill to find something like this

(or maybe you already have accents around your house that could use an update)
Cover in gold or silver
an instant update and so cheap to do also!
Happy Thrifty-ing!

Before & After: Master Bathroom #3

This master bathroom had good bones, but the tile work and craftsmanship had to go.
That is where I came in...
The Plan

Custom cabinetry

Granite countertops
Fabulous tile work

Shampoo niche and rain shower glass

Accent glass

A new linen cabinet built in
The finished project came out beautifully- and the clients were trilled at the end.
What more can you ask for, right?

Thrifty Thursday: Fabric Covered Canvas


Do you have any left over canvas'? Or perhaps something you previously painted doesn't work for your home anymore?
What better way to reuse them- than to just re-cover them with fabric for a totally new look.
That's exactly what I did for this next project.
Supplies Needed

16x20 Canvas
Wooden Letters
2.5-3 Yards of fabric
Spray paint
Staple gun
Hot glue gun
Step One:
Spray paint letters
(you may need more than one coat of paint on each letter)
Step Two:

Cut fabric
(make sure you have cut enough to fold over to the back)
Step Three:

Staple corners of fabric

Then staple side
Repeat on all sides
Trim excess material
Step Four:

Glue letters on top of fabric
& hang!

Total cost: $30
Time: 1 hour + drying time
