Stephen is at his first Middle School dance so I thought I would take advantage of some free time and post an update. I've been trying to change things up in our house without spending a lot of money.

I found this frame at Goodwill.
It was dark green. I sanded it down, used some Vaseline and spray paint to distress.  Not bad for my first try. I was going to post the link for the printable here. I can't find it. The saying is perfect for our home.

I needed a change in our bathroom. We had so much fun at the beach this summer, I decided to add some of those memories into our decor. 
We have been collecting shells for years and wanted to use them for my beach theme. I found these at the dollar store:
I glued them together with my hot glue gun, added some 'beach' sand from Walmart and came up with this: 

The smaller jars I have had for years. 

I needed something to hang my jewelry own. Pinterest is always inspiring. I took a piece of scrap wood that we had, scrapbook paper, mod podge, and new and used knobs. 

Walgreens had a free deal on an 8 x 10 collage. I found a frame at Home Goods. 

Here's how it all looks together:

The last thing I did was a new (old) vanity tray for my perfume. I found this old tray at Goodwill. 

I sanded it and then spray painted it white. 

Found this great scrapbook paper, mod podge and sealant. All done. 

Now it's time to start thinking about those holiday projects...........
