DIY Apartment Decorating- Upcycled Cupboard Doors

I LOVE GARAGE SALES! One family’s trash is most certainly my most treasured treasure. This week I found some dirty white cabinet doors and I decided they would be perfect for my dining room…which is connected to my kitchen, my family room and my bedroom.

Last Minute Costumes

Mr. Kate!

Little Miss Momma!


C.R.A.F.T. !


If all else fails: Don’t shower, wear the clothes at the bottom of your dirty laundry, write on a piece of cardboard and go as a bum. When you’re walking home, stand on the corner for a few extra minutes and maybe if you’re lucky you’ll make a few bucks.
