home improvement.

i have been doing lots of home improvement around my casa lately...

i bought this table off craigslist for an amazing price, and had planned on spray painting it yellow, but actually like it just the way it is. yesss!

this door was in the trash pile in front of my next door neighbors house. so with a little chalkboard paint, voila!

and, this window frame was also found in the next door neighbors trash pile. the plates were on big time sale at anthro in austin. and, notice the pink little lampshade? goodwill $1.99.

i bought these pretty flowers and tied some ribbons and twine that i already had around a mason jar for a great spring decoration.

and, last but not least, i planted marigolds for some springtime flavor on my front porch.


i just love being unemployed.
