Remember how I told yall I was going to do something productive while on leave? No? Ok, well I did.

I figured since Lael was going to be gone for the week I could re-decorate her playroom.

If you recall from previous posts, that room was a hot ass mess.

If you follow me on Twitter (if not you make me sad) you may have possibly, kinda, sorta read that I might have been spray painting in my backyard, in the dark, with a flashlight.

I'm productive like that ya know?

Well here is the finished product. Kinda. What yall think?

Baskets make everything better.

I brought the lamp at a yard sale for $2. It had a brown base and no shingle thingy. Wapow!

Dollar Tree picture frames. Yes. I'm cheap.

Pottery Barn Kids curtains purchased at yard sale for $4. Pottery Barn Kids Flower pegs were $1 each and were white. Little spray paint and Wapow! Picture was $12 at Tar-Jay!

Polk-a-Dot basket. $6 at Tar-Jay. Whoo Hoo!

Pottery Barn Kids Rack $4-5 at yard sale and you know what happened with the spray paint right.....Wapow!

Cork board was $6 at Tar-Jay. Add a little gumdrop purple spray paint. Wapow! I'm just saying.

I'm a little proud of myself. Thanks for asking.

Oh and Thank You Target! I wuv you!


  1. Seriously? Where the hell do you live that your garage sales have pottery barn stuff?!

  4. I gotta go shoppin with you. I only wish that I were that frugal of a shopper.

    I'm not in the recession, but I'm starting a business and I've got to learn how to shop like that! Dangit girl!
