  • It's A Girl!!!! Baby Shower
    on Apr 22, 2015
    Well, thanks to my need to pinch pennies on everything I do, we pulled off a baby shower for my son & daughter-in-law without spending a bunch!  And thanks to Pinterest, every cheapskate's bible, we did most everything ourselves. Our shower...
  • Shabby Memo Boards
    on Jan 16, 2015
    These were so fun to make!  I scrounged up a couple of picture frames with ugly pictures and only kept the frames.  I painted them fun colors, and stapled chicken wire on the back side.  Then I painted some wooden clothes pins in coord...

    You will notice this date is a little in the future - when you are a true do-it-yourselfer and a cheapskate, you have to start early!!!I got a pallet FREE (makes my heart skip a beat when I hear that word!), and painted it white.  Then dug throu...
  • Chippy Door Gets New Life!
    on Oct 30, 2014
    I am sure there is something seriously wrong with me, but I just LOVE old chippy worn out stuff!  My aunt gave me this old door they found in their basement. I used some old barnwood (thanks, again, to my aunt!) to make a top and found some old...

  • Vintage Industrial Refurbished Chair
    on May 23, 2014
    I went to lunch one day, and noticed my son-in-law's truck outside, with this grubby chair in the back.  When I asked about it, he said he was on his way to the dump.  Of course, I couldn't let that happen!  I cleaned it up a bit, pain...
  • Garden Rocker
    on May 23, 2014
    I love this!  I found this child's rocker at a yard sale for $1.00.  I painted it with ivory rustoleum to withstand the elements.  Then I decoupaged on vintage seed packet pictures, added a galvanized birdhouse to the top and it now gr...
  • Buckets, Buckets!
    on Apr 16, 2014
    Who doesn't have some old, dented, rusty buckets sitting around? I decoupaged vintage seed packet images on these.  These will be great as shabby flower pots!  And the rust in the bottom means no drain-hole drilling!
  • Yardsale Plates Transformed!
    on Apr 16, 2014
    I found some clear glass plates in a yardsale, and moved them here and there for a couple of months before I could decide what to do with them. I decoupaged vintage flower pictures and sheetmusic on the back side of them.  The front is still foo...
