i put it in his room, so now we're even

I've been on a mission to de-clutter our home. If I can't think of a use for it within a few days of rediscovering it, I get rid of it. I have more picture frames than I know what to do with. A few have finally made it out into the public eye while a few more are on their way to Goodwill.

Adrian's room has never really been decorated. Not that he cares, but I do spend a good deal of time in there when I'm in the crafty mood considering my sewing machine and desk live there. I have had these bright yellow (very cheap) frames from IKEA for a few years and they have been tucked away since we moved into this apartment. That was a year and a half ago.

Here they are:

Not only have those frames been hidden away, but so has the little mirror. I got it from a garage sale before Adrian was born. I'm not even sure if I was expecting him yet. I had wanted to paint it because it had that weird finish with the black spots, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. I also got the wreath from a garage sale, but it didn't look like that. It was a made of straw and set me back a whole 25 cents. I bought it with no immediate ideas in mind but I like wreaths so I knew I would figure something out. I tied fabric scraps to cover the straw and hung it in the living room. It just didn't look right so I put it in Adrian's room instead and I like it much better there.

I love decorating without spending [another] dime!

I'm going to have to steal that wreath idea!! I have a few wreaths in the garage and of course enough fabric scraps to fill a room!
