MANI MONDAY

If you've been reading for awhile you KNOW of my love for @dollartree faux nails. AMAZING designs, only a dolla and they typically last about a week (depending what projects or cleaning I am doing). Here is LAST week's Mani Monday....

The SECRET is picking up the nail design you like WHENEVER you see it (because they sell out quickly). I bought these back in July. They're perfect ANYTIME of year BUT I knew they'd be especially perfect for "fall".

I have St. Patrick's Day designs for next year, red and black ombre for around Halloween, glitter for the holidays....Have YOU tried Dollar Tree's nails?!?!

TRY IT THURSDAY....DOLLAR TREE COW PICTURE

I LOVE a good find!!! Last week I got to go garage sale-ing and found a few pretty good pieces...

 (obvi the napkins are from Target and the other from Homegoods BUT this ENTIRE haul was $10.00 - TOTAL). See the apple picture?!?!? While it IS beautiful, I really bought it for the mirrored frame - I paid $2.00.


        I pried up the apple pic to see if it would loosen without tearing the fabric and it did!!!



I needed some type of backing for my picture as it was slightly smaller than the glue spots left behind....

 I was going to use a scrap of denim from an old pair of jeans BUT it wasn't wide enough...so I dug through my scrapbook paper and found this blue tissue type paper...hot glued it down...

Hot glued my cute lil @dollartree Cow print on the paper....and VIOLA!!! My country glam print is ready to be hung!!

THRIFTY TUESDAY....FALL FLORAL URN

I am SO LATE to the youtube game....I NEVER watch videos on there....but one of my insta accounts I follow posted a fall home tour and I've been ADDICTED ever since!! I find so much INSPIRATION on these decorating / haul channels (I mean I TOTALLY wanna make some videos too BUT I'm not ready yet...I want my office to be perfect OR at least usable - like legit the table is COVERED with stuff). Anyway after watching @sharonshesofabulous https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPJjQPls_aA&t=941s I was inspired to create FALL FLORAL centerpieces.

While out thrifting one day I found this gorgeous floral urn - already done up like this and I was buying it to piece it out...was going to use the flowers for one thing and the urn for another...

 BECAUSE it was ONLY $1.00 for the whole thing....I couldn't buy either the flowers or the urn for under $4.00....

 Then I realized it was TOO GORGEOUS to take apart...and I could keep it out year round and just ADD fall elements....like this chunky glitter pumpkin I made and showed y'all HERE
I simply added a wooden skewer and stick it sideways into the arrangement....
and then I remembered I had this gorg feather I found at a garage sale (in the driveway out in the country on our way out) and plopped that in there too!!
Now I have this really gorgeous rustic arrangement in my powder room (and the total cost - $2.00). If you have a decor youtube channel leave me your link so I can check it out!!

THRIFTY TUESDAY....CHANDELIER MAKE OVER on the CHEAP

I have this really (ugly) vintage (not cute) farmhouse style chandelier in my dining room....

While I'd LOVE to swap it out for something legit vintage that I love I am NOT DOWN with electrical lighting and wiring. SO I added a chandelier cord cover to the chain (I have an extra one for sale if anyone's interested)


The cord cover made it SLIGHTLY better....But I KNEW I was ditching the shades (ya know since one was missing and another was broken)


 

And I wanted to replace them with these really cool exposed bulbs....


 As you can see the bottom bulb is $14.50 @ theamazon as Totally Tikaa calls it! And the top one was around 9.00 per bulb I believe....so still not awful but def NOT thrifty!!



I found these bulbs on clearance at my local drugstore.... 

                                     Unique shape, 5 left and $1.40 each - SOLD!!!


(HARD to get a good pic of them lit)
 I am content with the outcome (for now). It def looks more updated and I didn't get electricuted in the process - I'm good with that!!
