Updating corners…

My FRONT ROOM is still empty…
We do alot of dancing…and echo challenges…but no furniture until early next year:0)
While I am waiting and planning the perfect place… I decided that I needed something in there to start some inspiration popin:0)
I had these 2 flower buckets that I picked up at a Robb and Stucky closeout sale here in the PHX…it was so cool because they had these reps just walkin around helping everyone and you just asked them how much they would give it to you for…the lady said 1.00 and I was like SOLD..the original tag said 19.99. I also got 4 shams for 2.00 each that were originally 169.00 each!!! lol…omgoodness…what in the WORLD! Who would pay that much for SHAMSSSSSS!!!!!!

I sprayed painted them my favorite color of the moment…Celery and I added some decal letters my mom gave me for some added detail:0) Then I spray painted a loose trash pick up storage bin founded by my mother a lovely black and added some chalkboard labels. I was looking for some big fat ceramic square ones but I couldn’t find any!:0( well any that I liked:0) A few added accessories and I had myself a cozy little place by the front door….

and remember my beloved chalkboard in my transition space
….well I took it down….and have a different vision….
let’s just say…..I REALLY LOVE CHALKBOARD PAINT……watch out!!!!


  1. Holy macaroni, I don’t know who would pay $169 for a sham, that’s just crazy! Awesome deal on those! :)

  2. I love the idea of painting the flower buckets. I have one from Ikea and I’m so bored with it, but I didn’t know what to do with it till now. I think I just might try to paint it!

  3. Ohhh, going bold with the chalkboard paint! I can’t wait to see what you do!

    So what brand of spray paint is that? It’s a gorgeous color.

  4. Love what youve done so far! As always i love your creativity girl!!! :) Im in the process of making over my living room and Im also doinf the chalboard labels for my Goodwill basket finds! :) Cant wait! Im still on the prowl for some nautical goodies! LOL!!!!

  5. I cannot believe the deals you come across! SCORE! I love chalkboard too, but won’t allow any in my house because of…the um…well, mess. LOL :)

    Your comments about my house killed me. Too funny! Girl, we live in the Money Pit! But thank you for your sweet comment. :)

  6. I have one of those from ikea and use it to hold my long rolls of paper from papersource, it’s awesome!

    Found your blog through “house of smiths,” and love it!

    Keep up the great creativity!

  7. Love your transformation! Way cute display :)

  8. Ok, first of all, I’m moving to Arizona (or you can come down to Florida for a little while!) so that we can shop together! I think with you and my granny shopping with me, I might be able to redecorate my WHOLE house for next to NOTHING! lol (It also helps that the boyfriend works at Lowe’s! lol) Anywho…thanks for posting this, simply because my godmom just gave me 2 of those flower buckets EXACTLY like yours & they’ve been sitting in the corner, waiting for me to do something with them. Now I’m inspired…I’ll be sending you photos, don’t worry!! lol Thanks Destiny…keep the ideas coming, bc it’s helping me get situated over here!! lol
