Just A Few Changes . . .

Hey everybody! I hope you're having a
good week so far. I decided to spruce 
up a little area in my hallway.

Here is the area I'm talking about . . .

It wasn't bad but just kind of blah. My budget
for this area was ,well, zero! I 
"shopped" my house for stuff to use and
found this . . .

This little clock was in our garage until I
did the "mudroom" makeover. It wasn't 
big enough for us to see when we
were outside so I bought a new one
for the garage.

It was the perfect size but not the right color.
So I popped out the plastic cover and painted
it black. Perfect and FREE!

I love the message board but it needed
some sprucing up too. Out came the 
aqua paint and it looks like new
again! FREE!

I took the letter "S" from Handyman Hubby's
office. It was brown and I painted it
white. I don't think he even noticed
it's gone!  : )  FREE!

Here's a look at the hallway now . . .

Just a few little changes and
 it was all FREE!!!
It's not a huge difference but
just enough to brighten up
this area.

BEFORE . . .

                    AFTER . . .

Have an awesome day!

One of my friends just started a blog and I know it's going to be
 fabulous! I'd love for you to
 stop by and give her some
Thanks - you all are the best!
