I am a total slacker!! I was busy with some graphic design stuff for my church last night and by the time I finished I was just too tired/unmotivated to update my post :(

This is a non-stamping related post today:

You may remember my doorknob project~here.
Well I started looking around the house for things I could spray paint (I am just warning you~it starts to become an addiction, LOL!!!), well, low and behold, check out these really pretty 80's looking lamps!!!! Viola!!! Score!

I have been doing a mini makeover in my bedroom (and I mean mini~due to my recent spending freeze). So since I had the spray paint and the ugly lamps already, the cost of this project was $0 *woot woot* (don't they look 100% better?).

Then while I was shopping around in Hobby Lobby and trying to find something not on sale, so I could use my 40% off coupon...I bought these vinyl letters (thanks to my perfectionist hubby for hanging them). While I was there, I noticed that all the wall art was 50% off, so I scored a few pictures to add around the vinyl letters (still need to hang those). I think my total cost for all the wall stuff was right around $20 (not to bad).

Then last week I found a deal here for a free 8x10 canvas (only had to pay S&H), so I jumped on the deal!!! I upgraded to the 11x14 which was an extra $9. I was pretty happy with the quality (especially since it was free~minus the s/h and upgrade, LOL!), my total cost for this was $27 (instead of around $80). Hopefully Mike, (my perfectionist measuring hubby) will help me get all this stuff up on the wall this weekend!!! So exciting!!

I am also thinking of swapping duvet covers from the guest room to mine (another freebie!!). Once I get the entire thing completed I will post a photo.

Ok friends...Enjoy the weekend and I promise to have some stamped goodness for you next week!!

Wow! What a difference a bit of paint makes huh. I am going to have to look at old things with new eyes and see what ideas I can come up with :)
