a couple rooms

Well, I finally did go to bed, but I made brownies first and watched a video I had been meaning to watch...and also ate some of the aforementioned brownies.

I am a bargain hunter by nature, so I'm going to share some of the great finds.
HERE IS MY SHELF. ($75, used IKEA shelf form closing store downtown)
It never ceases to amaze me what a little organization can do.

kids living/family media room
The square, blue chairs are SOOOOO comfy. ($20 each-thrift store moving sale!!!) They are down-filled, and they are on casters so they can be moved around, making the space here at the top of the stairs pretty versatile.

 homework/game/puzzle/play room
The little brown shelf here was one a neighbor (a long time ago) was getting rid of from his workshop. $$free$$. The farm table was once our kitchen table. I sawed the legs off to fit those little chairs we've had forever. Lamp: yard sale. $3.

Now, for some fun in the guest bathroom downstairs.

(Crooked picture....sorry).

 THESE BLOCKS CRACK ME UP. All this stuff, except the picture frames, which I spray painted over a year ago, came from thrift stores and a closing antique shop in town. (The picture frames hold a couple pages from a cute children's book about the seasons of the year... I chose winter.) Total price without the frames: $$less than $10.
gotta have some breakfast
