Being More Eco-Friendly and Saving Money in Meantime!

I have 3 little ones at home and almost every month has big expenses with seasonal clothing, back to school supplies, birthdays, holidays, etc. so I am always looking to economize....that, and I do have some serious hippy chick views about ecology and the environment. 

I am not above spending and buying something of quality that can greatly enrich my space or style but for sure try to practice as much reduce, reuse, recycle philosophies as I can...

One of the things I do in my spare time (what little I have) is to find some serious furniture and design pieces and give them a new life. I just LOVE yard sales, thrift shops, and craigslist finds! I also think some of the pieces are more unique than what you can get now and have you totally bond as you re-paint and design the new pieces...

In that trend, here are some furniture makeovers I have found (online- not mine) that I think would look amazing in any house!

So, grab a paint brush and get out there! Happy Thrifting!!!


  1. Beautiful! I'd love to do this, but I'm out of room in my house. I need a bigger place, I guess! :)

  2. I have not done a piece in awhile! I really need to get out there to the yard sales...
