We have moved a lot over the years and since we rent it is hard to really do what I want when it comes to decorating my home. Most houses have been 1-2 year stops and I don’t like spending a lot of money and time decorating when I am going to move again. I need to decorate rather low budget, especially as I have also learned from previous experiences. The stack of curtains in my cedar chest attest to the fact that every house is different and what works for one small living room with a few tiny windows may not work in one large living room with lots of over-sized windows. My budget is too tight and I am too practical to spend a lot of money on decorations that will eventually just not be useful and collect dust or end up in a donation bin.
In my determination to make this space my own I have gone on the quest for inexpensive items to decorate with. One of my goals was to shadowbox a Lego creation for my boys’ room because they are into all tings Lego. The problem is that shadow boxes don’t come cheap unless…..
Thanks to Goodwill, the creator of the graduation cap and tassel frame, the person who must not cared for that gift or mom’s great plan to show off the tassel and cap, I found this perfectly awesome frame for $2.97. Sorry shadowbox. You have been de-throned.
With Legos from my kids’ over flowing (Freecycle) bin I made them some artwork for their wall. A Lego designer I am not, but my sweet boys were happy and that is all that matters.
