Thrifty Thursdays



This is a project I did awhile back, let me tell you the storey behind it first. One of my best girlfriends lives in a big fancy house, her husband is a custom home builder so you can only imagine the beautiful details. In every room she has one wall custom painted to a certain theme. Every time I leave her house I am inspired to go home and fix up my tiny little house. I decide to copy her walls by attempting to paint a few walls in my house myself. I am a very crafty person but I can not even draw a stick figure so had was in for a challenge. I went to Hobby Lobby (my absolute favorite) and picked up a stencil and brushes then I stopped by home depot for paint. First let me show you her walls (I hope you don't mind Ginny).....

Aren't her walls AWESOME! To have someone come in and custom paint you walls can start at around $300 and go way up from there. My walls cost me a total of around $50 for both walls, there not as good as her beautiful custom walls but they look pretty darn good if you ask me!

Happy Thrifty Thursday!!!!

Oh I love your walls! I love your sign too! lol Hubby bought that for me at Canton and that's where I keep all the family pictures. We also have the same kind off foot picture. For Fathers day I put the kids feel together and took a picture and the other one was their hands together and I used them for his card! Geeze you have good taste! lol
