"I Made it Without My Hubby"!


I rarely do any project without my hubby. I always need help or at least want help.

But this I did all by myself. I needed something on either side of my sliding glass door in my living room. And my goal this month is to use things I already have. First of all, it saves money and second, my closets are busting at the seams. So is under my bed and anywhere else stuff can be shoved! I am I am an expert stuff shover!






I had two of these framed prints that I got for $5 a pair last year. I intended on making them chalk boards, but that never happened.


So I took the print out and just painted the frame. Then I stapled some of my leopard wrapping paper to the wall. (the same paper I used here) Next I hung the frame and then hung the candle holder on top of the paper. And whoops I did buy something. The metal scrolly things on top are from Hobby Lobby. They were half off though, so I only spent about $5 for both.




I used pink spray paint called Sweet Pea for the frames.





I wish you could smell the candles. They are Tyler Candles and the scent is high maintenance. The name in no way reflects the description of the homeowner!


Shoot, I guess that's another thing I bought too!



Well, at least I made it without my hubby!
