You don't need (a lot of) money to decorate.

Please allow me the pleasure of indulging your curiosity - and invite you to my kitchen.

Let's be clear. It's rare I'm in the kitchen for any length of time; however, that's still not a good enough reason not to dress it up a bit.

(Frame: Use to be gold - had a little make over. Crosses - 50 percent off at Hobby Lobby - added a coat of paint. Table - $15 at a garage sale - use to be hunter green.)

I used black spray paint to put the first layer on the frame. Note: the frame cost $30 at a antique store. After the paint dried I used a dry rag to accent the embellishments with a light coat of turquoise.

I used Ree's cookbook once. It created a huge mess that I refused to clean up for 3 days. It was back to turkey sandwiches after that.

I'm pretty sure I read on a blog recently that fake flowers are for the birds. I guess rules are to be broken because I don't see me receiving or growing flowers anytime soon.

I take that back - this plant is still kickin' - bless it's little heart. My amazing friend Lacy made these curtains for me! I highly suggest making your own curtains - you can't beat the price and the outcome is always better.

These dish towels came from TjMaxx. I'm pretty sure they were right around $4. Seriously.

Thanks for stopping by. I promise to have something more entertaining next time.

How you doin'?

Thanks to a few blogging friends I've recently become addicted to Pinterest. Pinterest is a website where you can pin images to boards dedicated to certain topics. It's basically a virtual bulletin board where you can organize your thoughts and see others' ideas.

I recently pinned this image to one of my boards, "Projects." It reminded me of a shabby chic version of the door from the television show Friends.

So what's a girl to do when she has a frame like this?

A frame that only cost a dollar.

Well, for starters - paint it turquoise.

Embellish it with black accents and top it off with a clear top coat.

And, hang it on the front door.
