Realizing money doesn't just grow on trees, I have been forced to try my hand at some DIY projects around the house with the help of Pinterest. (examples below) I already have my next project pinned!

If I'm not trying recreate something I found through "pinning", I am at Kirklands, a local home goods store (this is not a sponsored post) looking for a new idea, inspiration, or just the right piece that will fill an empty hole. I love this store because the inventory is always changing and I can always get a good deal. (Never pay full price, there is always a coupon out there!) Fun fact: I recently landed a part time job there! Not only can I share my love of home decorating with fellow shoppers, but now I'll be able to buy even more items for my home at an even cheaper price! (I know what you're thinking....BRILLIANT! Ok, some of you are thinking I'm crazy, and I respect that).
This past weekend was my first weekend working, and boy was it busy! Good news was the time flew by and I got to talk to so many people who were just like me, looking to furnish their new home. I managed to work two days and not buy anything, which if you know me, is definitely a good sign. :) I look forward to making a little extra fun money to use on my new decorating hobby.
To close, I will leave you with some pictures of our house (as it is now) in hopes to give you inspiration for your next home project. Leave comments below telling me what you're up to!
