A Blank Slate

My friend Kirsten from Mia Stella Photography moved to Arizona to a rental home, and her house needed some help. She is a military wife and moves quite often, so she doesn't have much in decorations. Enter Tani and I. We walked through with our notebook and after taking some notes and her color choices, we hit the thrift stores.
We took a vase she got for $60, Yeah I know, It no longer fit with the new colors she picked out, so we decided to paint it, of course. SOMEHOW it was backed over with the truck, don't ask. With the few large pieces left, we decorated them and made wall art, what do you think?
Pin It

We added the "k" Mirror and several bottles we found. Perfect for her Niche, don't ya think?
She has always wanted a hope chest, the lid was broken and was half price day at the ole GW. We fixed the lid and gave the ole gal some love and paint, oh and a new cushion. Isn't she a beauty?
With $7.00 end tables, we gave them a make over to house the $5.00 lamp and shade that we redid.
I took apart a $5 hideous side table and made some candle sticks and a big clock, which I will show at a later day.
Onto the kitchen. She chose red, black and white. This is but 1 little corner we tackled. Redid the old cupboard, painted it black then roughed it up a bit. And of course it wouldn't be complete without the memo board and the "new" lamp.
The big blank wall leading into her living room is now occupied by this star that I mod podged. I love it.
There are more pics that I will share later. Her home is a work in progress and I can't wait to finish it.

I'm linking up to a paint party over at Domestically Speaking
