Case in point...the master bathroom. All it needed was a few finishing touches. For $8.50 I purchased 1/2 yard of fabric from Hobby Lobby. With this yardage I was able to recover the existing cornice board over the window....
sorry...bad lighting issues. But trust me, the cornice board is quite lovely. IMHO
I was also able to cover an old German sewing basket. This one of the first things I purchased as a new bride. I paid $15.00 for it in 1988 while we were stationed in Germany.
much better picture of the fabric and wall. Almost perfect lighting.
The vignette that I created above the sewing basket.
One of my favorite thrifty finds is the chalk drawing dated 1890. Original frame and glass. I paid $16.00 for it at an auction in Virginia. It reminds me of the marshlands at night.
Moving along, the last project that I was able to squeeze out of that 1/2 yard of fabric was a little wall art for the toliette area!
I took two canvas frames that I found while shopping at Cato Fashions. I had on my list of errands for the day to stop by Hobby Lobby and purchase canvas but when I saw these and the price I decided it wasn't worth my effort of gas money to drive across town to the HL. I paid $1.99 each. Certainly not inventing the wheel here folks as I know this has been done a million times all over blogland.
Now for the after....
Again bad lighting. The walls are really a lovely khaki color. But you can still get the idea.
A little metamorphosis for not a lot of money and now I'm calling it a day in the master bath!!
