“Designer chic” might be too hoity toity of a description but when I show you the before and after, you are gonna be impressed.
And my mad skills.
And the best part?
This is something each one of you out there could soooo do yourself.
All you need is a piece of furniture you want to renovate, some mod podge, 25 cent scrapbook paper, a new knob from Hobby Lobby and some spray paint.
My oldest daughter and I are soul mates.
She has the same childhood fears I had.
She loves the same foods I do.
She loves bad reality TV like I do.
And she loves a good sale.
She, at age 12, will price compare while shopping for clothes.
She is my favorite garage sale-ing person.
Because she is not afraid to talk me out of things I do not need.
Like this cool fuchsia dress I had my eye on.
“mom, puhleeze..that will make you look like a circus clown”
Or that really fun antelope head for only 10 dollars!!
“mom, puhleeze…people will stop talking to you if you put that in your house”
Friends won’t give you that brutal honesty.
Case in point, a cool sundress that I bought for a recent party.
I tried it on in front of my friend Rebecca and she and I both agreed that I looked pretty awesome in said dress.
When I got to the party?
The first comment?
Someone thought I was pregnant.
My 12-year-old said to me later, “if you had tried it on in front of me, I woulda told ya you looked pregnant in it.”
