ReStore to the Rescue!

I'm in a funk again.

So instead of just whining here or to my children who can't hear me anyway due to Mp3 earbuds 
I embarked on a bit of thrifting therapy.  Hit a goldmine at the H4H Restore.  

See?


Been wanting to find an old door with glass for a corner in my house.  This one just needs a bit of cleaning.  Already has some glorious wear 'n tear...


Also picked up an empty frame from their cabinet door department 
and the criss-crossy things for cool wall art. 


Remember I used a big one over my bed last year?


And lastly, I found this wood room divider for my daughter's studio apartment.
Can't wait to find some cool fabric to use...not a fan of dirty yellow polyester.


I'm working on fallifying some areas of my house, switching around some window treatments, and repainting a room or two.  

Like you do.

Remember this:


Well I miss my beloved brown and white.  

The dining room became our office/schoolroom (which I need to reveal),
so I've found another room to do in brown and white.
Brown Alpaca by Martha Stewart will make a grand entrance soon,
and maybe this beauty will find itself paired up nicely with it.

I LOVE HFH Restore! I usually go to the one near me about twice amonth. I have gotten SO many things for free!

One thing I want to learn to do is lighting. They always have such great stuff, but I have NO clue how to do it.

I love the door!!

Love the old door - that's a great find. Come to think of it, I haven't been to our ReStore in a long while. It's time for a visit!

I just found a ReStore in this area. I don't think it's been here long- what a find! I can't wait to see your brown and white room!

What's the matter? You don't think that yellow polyester will grow on you after awhile?;>) xo Diana

Love your door, Cindy. Hopefully this helped your funk!

I'd love it if you stopped by and shared a project at my 1st Link Party that started yesterday.

Thank you Cindy!
