Reinvented

I love a woman who is real. (and a woman who has my blinkie button posted as well as our new widget).....Kimm........besides having the same name as me, but with an extra M..........is real. Over at Reinvented, her motto is Home Decor for Real People, with Real Stuff and Real budgets. Isn't that the truth? Isn't that the struggle to decorating at times, is finding what works for you within your budget? Not sure about you, but at times I am accused of having a Champagne taste on a beer bottle budget. And like Kimm, I have learned to work my yard sale or Goodwill mojo to get things the way I want. We are women after all...........if there's a will, there's a way.

Stand back ladies..........would you look at that front door? It may not be red........but my second favorite is black......with a RED monogram. And those polka dot pots are da bomb! I think I'm going to steal that idea to place on each side of my new gate that my perfectionist husband built........he gate that we just found out we can't paint for 6 mo......something to do with it being cedar......bla bla bla........I don't want to talk about it.......but I know these pots will look super cute next to my gate when I have to painted white.....

While were looking at pots...........she did another one for a friend. I love this idea, I don't know why I just don't take the time to do a few for myself, or friends. I think it's one of those items that is pretty simple but has that high gasp appeal for originality.My neighbor JUST did this for her headboard this weekend. She painted hers black. This is a GREAT inexpensive idea and really........so much cuter than most. Kimm was actually the brains behind this below.............Yes, yes, I know I posted it a couple of weeks ago thinking it was from another featured blogger..........but she was only showing Kimm's work. If you missed it, then feast your eyes on this great idea for framing. She used an embossed wall paper as her background. She distressed it a bit, added the photos and TaDa!

She has a couple of before and afters on her blog too. We love those.........keep em coming.After...........she shows how she added the decorated embellishments before painting it black. Anytime we can find something to paint...........we're happy. Enjoy her blog..........leave her a nice comment.......she's sweet.

Just a note to let you know we have SO many great blogs to click through on our baby blue widget to the left. I'm finding so many blogs for my FFF (future feature file) too.

Oh my gosh, Kim, I was here for my daily visit, and to get your URL for my blog designer (you know, to show her what I LIKE), and Tadaaaaa! My name! Wow, I am so honored, thanks!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Okay, so we have the SAME blog designer, AND the same name! I guess I don't need to show her this one, then. :)

I headed over to Kimm's blog and loved it all! What a great idea to put your initial on your front door - too bad I've got so many windows.
