Does anybody remember the song "Second Hand Rose"? It was an old Barbara Streisand song that I LOVED as a little girl. I have a now-somewhat-hidden drama gene that was in full bloom as I'd sing that song at the top of my lungs and strut my stuff. (Mind you, I was always Townsperson #27 in the high school musicals, but I didn't care. It was enough to stand on the stage under the lights and sing my heart out!)
1. Don't be afraid to buy second hand.
We were excited to get a great piece again today. We had been shopping for large, framed mirrors for quite a while to go over the bed. The wall color is quite dark, and we needed to capture some light and bounce it around. All of the mirrors that we looked at that were the right size were $250 and up. We got this one for less than half, and I love it!!
Shari Braendel, our resident Proverbs 31 fashion expert, says to never buy something on sale that you wouldn't buy at full price. You have to love it! I think that's true on Craig's List, too, which brings me to my second point.
I've got a couple more tips, but I'm going to enjoy my new cozy room. I'll post on Wed with a few more pictures and the reality of a partially finished project.
Janet, my sister-friend, even though I've posted, I still want you to make a visit to Holly Springs soon!
