  • Halloween House!, We had a big Halloween party and the whole house got a spooky facelift. I didn't spend a lot on store bought decorations...just tried to "spookify" everything with a little creativity...and a lot of black! The cutout paper bats were a great and supercheap way to unify the entire house around the theme. Bats were on the walls, "flew" out of the light fixtures and hung from the barren, black "trees" in each corner. The "trees" were just big branches dragged in from the woods (free!) and spray painted black. Small branches filled vases for table decor - just watch out for the real bugs and spiders! 
Regular art and photos were all covered over with black & white pictures of scary characters and haunted houses, all printed off the computer. The biggest expense was 50 yards of cheesecloth, stained and shredded to cover all the windows in a gauzy, ghostly film. Lots of candles completed the look. Guests had a great time wandering around to check out every creepy corner! Last year I used 2 red plastic tablecloths ($1 each!) to cut out a "dripping blood" border at the ceiling of each room. A lot of impact for two bucks!, Holidays Design

  • White and charcoal gray home office, This space, off to the side of our kitchen, is supposed to be a breakfast nook. But as soon as we moved in, our boys began putting their toys here. We didn’t have furniture for a nook, so I followed suit and put my puny little desk in the same space so I could work while they played. I thought it was temporary, but it actually was working great as a playroom/home office. I painted the salmon wall Kendall Charcoal, put in two Micke desks from Ikea, and added my own DIY artwork.

  • (Budget) Kitchen Makeover - The "Nesting" Syndrome, These are before and after pictures of our 1930's kitchen. Our goal was to re-do the kitchen as quickly and inexpensively as possible since we were expecting our second child soon. I guess you can say the "nesting" bug hit home. Ultimately, we repainted the walls golden yellow (for there was not any time to rip out the brick!) and laid down sheets of MDF wood coated with polyurethane as flooring. I'm proud to say that our $30 floor gets the most compliments from our friends/family and has held up very well over the past 4 years. We extended the counter by re-purposing a desk my husband made by adding metal legs and a laminate top; it provides a great space for extra seating as well. Although it doesn't have all of the bells and whistles, it has worked to serve our needs over the years, but now we need a change! We need more prep work space and new cabinetry. Playing tug of war with wooden drawers that stick resulting in saw dust everywhere is no longer okay to overlook. Would love to reconfigure the space somehow;any suggestions?, Kitchens Design

  • Update on a Budget, The room started with getting a free gallon of paint.  We thought it was going to be more of a brown color, but it turned out to be more golden brown.  So, with that we set out to make it work.  A romantic shower curtain is actually regular curtains from JC Penney.  The towel holder is a wreath holder (husband LOVES it because it is so easy to throw the towel on a hook).  The black accessories and artwork were all bargains at local discount stores or on clearance racks.  We wanted a warm and inviting space.  Many bathrooms are cold.  Ours is relaxing.... I want to be in this room., Bathrooms Design

  • Boating with Baby, My son, Ronan, is now 2. We just converted his crib into a "big boy bed". While taking a photo to send my mother I decided to shoot the rest of the room & now I'm here :) If you have seen my other spaces you know that this is our 1st home, and we had the budget that accompanies new home ownership (none!). The entire space cost us approximately $380 (yup, that's everything!), Nurseries Design

  • Lovebird Nursery, We created a cute comfortable nursery on a budget. We wanted to keep the walls neutral so we added lots of color in the accessories. The entire room including furniture, paint, light fixture, and accessories cost less than $600. We couldn't be happier with the results!, Nurseries Design

  • "Mid" Century on Low Budget (just $1500!), I had a very low budget to create a room with enough style to reflect my personality. The goal was just to eliminate the empty room. This is the1st room you see when entering our home. It is our 1st house & like most new home owners, we didn’t have enough furniture to fill all the spaces. I absolutely ADORE mid-century modern (more specifically: mid-century Dutch modern) yet my entire budget wouldn’t even cover the purchase price of the teak sideboard I so coveted. So I hit the local 2nd hand shop where I scored the sideboard with hutch, the coffee table, the small black table & most of the glass accessories for $280. I bought new yet inexpensive upholstered pieces, did the artwork myself, bought a couple of new lamps & a new throw rug. Combine all that with the things I already owned (like the curtains & the mid-century desk I’m using as an entry table) and I believe I pulled off a decent version of my beloved mid-century design even though some of the pieces are more recent. I made sure to use furniture that had legs & I’m thrilled with the find of the end tables: they are a lovely natural wood grain that blends the dark of the other furniture with the light shade of the floor (which we can’t wait to replace)., Living Rooms Design

  • cozy living room between two stark spaces, The first floor of my loft is pretty small.  It has strange wall configurations making symetry and furniture placement difficult.  I think I've done an o.k. job creating warmth in the living room but the stark white walls, sharp angles, and cold industrial feel of the kitchen interfere with the warmth I've created.  The large french doors give a great view to my patio but I'm not quite sure how to create the relaxing, lush, garden space I invision since its such a small area.  , Living Rooms Design

  • Luscious bath on a shoestring, I rent an apartment in a senior housing complex. Everything is beige beige beige beige beige beige beige beige. There is nothing I can do about the walls or the cabinetry. Plus, my income is limited, so I have to make do with major bargains, what I have on hand, and "re-purposing" old stuff. I even have items picked out of other people's trash that I have rescued. I also need to make the most of every bit of space I have for showing off my own photography, so you will see my walls crammed with stuff. 

For me, purpose, economy and actual living take precedence over style and appearance, though I try to make it befit my own sense of beauty and artistry.

When you rate my spaces, please keep in mind that everything you see is on a shoestring budget. Don't compare it to fancy, pricey  spaces that is mostly what you get on HGTV. Think instead if you could come up with something better for under $100, and no opportunity to remodel. , Bathrooms Design
