Go Get Yours….
I found these black mirrors for $3.00 each at a local store, Surplus Unlimited in Norwich CT – I find all kinds of cool, different, funky decor stuff in this store, here is the link -> http://surplusunlimitedstore.com/ check it out!
I used FolkArt Metallic Cooper Acrylic Paint from Micheal’s Craft Store, here is the link -> http://www.michaels.com/ – The paint is fool-proof, you can’t mess it up! I only painted the top of the mirrors, I left the sides of the mirrors black to accent the black wrought iron head board I have in the bedroom.
So, for about $6.00 and an hour of work, I transformed two pieces of decor to update the design in my bedroom – money well spent!
Well, I’m not done yet … so back to work – I will post pics of my next D*I*Y project.
What projects are you working on? Please share in the comments below.

You decided to put your home on the market – You don’t have thousands of dollars to spend.
The good news, there are several things you can do to spruce up your house without spending a ton of money!
First impressions – You only have a few seconds to make a great impression. Let it start before they even walk in the front door. Creating curb appeal is the key for getting potential buyers not to just drive by, but want to step inside.
Simply Curb Appeal Tips:
There is no rule about how much you should expect to spend getting your home ready to sell, but investing a few thousand dollars can potentially increase your sale price – not to mention selling your house quickly!
Here are a few more frugal ways to stage your home for sale:

P.S. I saved myself 2.5 hours today, because I WAS NOT looking for lost documents!
My husband is from Sao Paulo, Brasil – It has been 20 years since I have been there, I can tell you it is still with me!
The music, The people, The culture, The arts, is so infectious that it gets into your soul and won’t leave you alone – at least this has happened to me.
I know today, with the Rio 2016 Olympics ending there will be a lot of people leaving Brasil, I am sure a good majority of them will be back!
I found this video a couple of months on you tube, I want to share it today – it shows the true diversity of the city ~ Enjoy….

So ….. I have been thumbing through magazines, spending too many hours on pinterest, looking at photos on my favorite sites to gather ideas and plans for our kitchen, and my husband’s “honey-do” list has begun … We are finally going to update and modernize our kitchen, there will be photos and behind the scene videos that will be posted during the process – this should be fun! Lol
This kitchen is too pretty to cook in – the style is French-Normandy design. I love the way the designer integrated the appliances for a seamless look with combined light fixtures with different styles and finishes that give the look of having been acquired over time instead of all at the same time.
The gallery or corridor style kitchen. Typically the sink is on one side and the range is on the other. This type of kitchen has it’s pros & cons – the negative is, traffic flow – the positive is, this style kitchen is much more efficient to prep and cook, you have everything right there, no walking across the kitchen to grab your supplies. I like that the designer did not put the dark tiles up to the cupboards on both sides, that would have made it look like a long closet!
There was a lot of creativity that went into this Pentagonal Kitchen – they squeezed maximum efficiency into this five-sided kitchen, there are some strange angles, walls moved to extend the floor’s footprint under the vaulted ceilings. I like the pop of #sherwinwilliams DARING color against the white cabinetry.
I love how this kitchen does not have any straight lines. The main prep area widens to accommodate cooking action – the long wall is bowed to meet the deeper front of the range. I like how the designer built the island in a “ice cream cone” shape. The partition wall is unique with the oval opening – love all the details!
Another type of efficient kitchen – is the U-Shaped Kitchen. The designer knocked down the wall between the kitchen and dining room, to maximize the space. This type of kitchen allows you to increase your storage and organizational needs!
This Wedge-Shaped Kitchen replaced the existing rectangular island. This type of design lets you keep the walking aisle consistent, so that the room feels balanced and not forced or mismatched. The wider end of the island fits the homeowners baking, cooking needs and offers close proximity to the stove. I like the way the designer added detail to the ceiling, by creating an indentation and adding trimming that compliments the cabinetry.
This kitchen is another Wedge-Shape Kitchen – I love the funky ’50s vibe the designer created in this space! There are times, rather than fight the odd shape of a room – it’s best to just go with the flow.
This is the type of kitchen you want, when you have more than one cook in the family! There is room for everyone to prep, cook and entertain while you are enjoying your kitchen activities. This kitchen design has plenty of storage for an organized and functional space.
Another image of gallery / corridor style – I posted this one, because the designer put a range on one side and double oven on the other side – my baker husband would love this one!
The essential work triangle – I love the vaulted ceilings in this kitchen, along with the double sinks – again, great design for the family that shares the love of cooking! The island is a piece of furniture itself – I like how the designer added the arched trim around the window, it adds a classic-cottage look to a recently designed kitchen.
I hope these images help you gather some ideas for your own kitchen redesign project – and create your “honey-do” list!
