Makeef's new Native shoes

I had to splurge and get Mak these super cute shoes. Since they're plastic and have holes everywhere I think they will be great for all our spring and summer time activities! 
The store I bought his at did not have this range of colours, I would have totally boughten the Turquoise ones!!!

Shabby makeover part2

Hi there! So this is my desk area, where I sit every morning and blog!
I needed a place to put my printer (instead of in the chair) so for the time being i'm using this really ugly white shelf. Lucky I have some cute fabric and I've covered the top with it. Not the most appealing piece in the room, but it has it's functions.  I do also have a white shelf holding more of my vintage saucers and random things, but it isn't fully painted yet so you will have to wait.

Thanks for all the sweet comment's from yesterday! I'm going to paint the small desk soon, but I'm worried about the top scratching because I use it as my work area. Does anyone know how to finish the top so all the paint doesn't scratch off? 

A couple more new girls..

My Shabby makeover

Yay, so I've finally gotten my room to a likeable state! The design is definitely eclectic, modern with shabby chic.  I realize that this taste isn't for everyone but at this point of my life I'm loving it! I need a room that inspires me to be creative, and that I love spending time in, and this is it! 
You've got to keep in mind that I've spent maybe $100 on this room. It is mostly done with things i've  thrown together from around the house, and things I got at second hand stores, craigslist, or winners.  I might try to paint the table white, but I need to wait till we have a few day's of guaranteed Sun. I think it doesn't look half bad for BUDGET decorating! 
I will show the other side of the room tomorrow because there are just too many pictures!

P.S. My mother made me that rock by crocheting around it, Isn't it beautiful!!

Recycled Fun

This past weekend I worked on a few crafts to finish up my Shabby inspired office/craft room. I painted these tin cans and a couple glass jars so I had a place to put some random things.  I used Acrylic paint from the dollar store. With the Mason jar I painted the outside because I may plant a succulent in it, but the smaller pink jar is painted on the inside, which gives a whole other effect. I personally prefer the paint on the inside!  The last picture below is my inspiration found on Monio.
