Thrifty Tuesday- Decorating a New House

I love decorating!  If I had unlimited funds, I would constantly be changing up my decor.  As you well know, my funds are quite limited.  And, considering how we are just renting this house, I can't do anything too permanent.  Nor do I want to spend money on a house that isn't mine.  That said, I am trying to find ways to decorate on the cheap without hanging sheets as curtains.  I am a huge goodwill fan, and the other day I scored some wicker plates.  You know the kind you have camping to hold up your paper plates?  I think they were $.40 each so I bought the whole pile.  I then spray painted them white, pale yellow and bright yellow.  Once dry, I nailed them onto the wall in a cascading pattern.  Now we have a feature work of art, completely one of a kind and keeping in our budget.  What do you think?  Like it or not?  I would love to hear your thoughts!


  1. Jessica, you are a natural interior designer. You did great things in your home in Maryland and it continues in Texas. I like the looks of the painted wicker on the wall and the design. I also like your new sweater. Have you worn it yet? It must have taken months to knit it. Don't forget your flu shot.
    Love u, Grammy

    1. Thank you Grammy! I did get to wear my new sweater to church last week. Love you!

  2. I love it! It totally reminds me of picnics:)
