Thrifty & Chic: A Small Preview


I’ve been working on Penelope’s room for what feels like AGES. I’m so close, though, I can taste it. I just need to find a lamp, hang the rest of the art & replace the mobile that our annoying maintenance man carelessly ruined. I don’t sound bitter about that mobile, do I?

I’ve found/collected some really fun things for Penelope’s room & wanted to share them with you as part of this week’s Thrifty & Chic.

  • shelf: $3
  • watering can: $1
  • “P”: gift to Penelope for her birthday from annilygreen
  • elephant: gift to Penelope from aunt Shelley
  • painting: one of mine
  • daisy jar: $1

I’ve been sticking to a yellow theme with Penelope’s room with pops of orange, pink & teal. I really like how it’s coming together and can’t wait to share the final result with you!!

      I used yellow for my oldest daughter’s room as the paint color. I love it – so bright and sunshiny! I don’t know if I’ll ever be done decorating it, but I’m happy with the way it looks right now – P’s looks like it will be fantastic!

      I am impressed! To see something “thrifty” that is actually under $10 is a real treat and especially when it looks so pretty and well-designed as this!
