My name is Millie. I have so many great things to share with you. My home, my frugal purchases, my ups and downs of restoring, painting and decorating my apartment. I painted and decorated many homes for the past 25 years and I plan to share some of these experiences with you.
Three years ago I moved into my lovely apartment and since decorating is one of my passions, I thought I could share with you what I have done to it so far. It was not easy for me to downsize from a large 3 bedroom house into an apartment, but I did it.
I find that I can get lovely things to decorate my home at Rummage sales, garage sales, thrift stores and closeouts for very little money and for a lot better quality. Whenever I find something I like I will always try to convince the seller to lower the price. They usually don't like it but if I can get it for less money I am willing to try.
A few years ago I picked up this desk/vanity at our local Goodwill store for $20 dollars. It was in need of a new face lift. I brought it home and sanded it until the wood was very smooth, I primed with a dark gray primer and then I painted it in a lovely high gloss black. It came out fabulous.
Love the desk...
I hope I can inspire you to make your home or apartment a little heaven on earth for very little money...hope to see you soon.
