Shopping In Your Home

I seriously think I have a problem sometimes with wanting to change things up in my home. I don't know if I just get bored with it or if I just like change?! Who knows! I do, however know that when I can put something together to make our home cute, and it's also FREE, I am one happy lady! How do I do this? Shop my own home. I take things from around my house or that may be put away for a few months and bring it back out, rearrange it and create something entirely different. I decided to change up the shelves on my wall after Easter and here is what I came up with . Everything is something I've had for years or from a previous project.
My favorite star!

These two frames with pictures of my boys in them. Previously sitting on an end table.

This frame I got at a thrift store and gave it a makeover for Earth Day!

This little chalkboard that I made for Earth Day. Also from a thrift store and was previously a cutting board.

A thrift store candle holder that I found for .99 cents. It's been sitting in my closet just waiting to be used!

My thrift store, Earth Day owl. He's so cute.

A made-over mirror that I've had since 2004.

And this cute, round mirror that I made over in January! I was once and ugly brass color.
Put it all together, and this is what you get....

*The "J" and "e" letters I also had but forgot to post a previous picture

Gave the chalkboard a little LOVE!

I challenge everyone to shop their own home to create something new! Please share with me. I love seeing new, fun ideas from all my blogging friends.
