DIY: Decorating on a Budget

2:26 PM

My husband and just moved into this cute little, tiny, itty bitty house closer to his work and school. Because we are renting I can't go to totally crazy changing everything... but I am going to change the things I can. We are going to live here for awhile so I want to get it cleaned up, organized, cozy before baby two arrives. The biggest goal is to do it for as little money as possible. I will be thrifting and crafting like crazy. I have my work cut out for me.

Working Room by Room
Complete in 4 months (before my July due date)

I hope and dream of a Shabby Chic cottage with a vintage feel

#1 Priority:
ORGANIZE!! With such a small space there isn't much room to store all my things, especially in the kitchen. I will be organizing like crazy.

Along with other Projects that my sis and I will be creating as the months go by I will post my progress! Wish me luck!

Here are some pictures of our house before any redecorating has taken place. Enjoy, and if you have ANY ideas to help me out let me know.. like what the heck I should out on the white shelves above the windows in my living room! I love good idea sharing.
