Wall Reveal

So that night that I did the topiary and plaque and holder- this was my motivator:
Blank not so pretty wall in my basement!

I had already hung the shelf brackets when I realized I needed a "before" photo :)

Ahhhhh! So much better! I hate blank walls! Anyone else with me?

I got the mini shelf wedges at JoAnnes for a killer $4! (for the set!)

One more look at my favorite new plaque (not vinyl!) Go HERE for tutorial

And that FREE topiary! HERE for tutorial

My 6 year old bought me the "J" for my birhtday (she knows my style!)

Total Cost: Shelves= $4, Frame= $1, Topiary= FREE, Plaque= FREE, grass= FREE (thanks Erin!), and "J"= FREE (gift), picture of Dog= .11 cents!
Total=$5.11 Not Bad!
Now go use up your craft scraps!

Thanks Jen! You are always so sweet to me!!!

Way to decorate inexpensively! And I LOVE everything about it! I linked back to your plaque tutorial & I love that. What a great idea to just print it off on scrapbook paper. genius!

Hi Maria!

Thank you so much for your award. My name is actually Laura, not Tiffany. I was reposting Tiffany's post (that's probably what confused you). Don't feel bad though! It's hard to keep track of everyone's names out in blog-land--I realize this! : )

Thank you again for your sweet compliments and awards. They blessed my day!

Lots of love to you,
