I should be studying...

But instead, I've been sucked into the DIY zone - a place where you envision making your house homier on a super-budget. And I'm in love with this website - The DIY Show Off - where peeps come to... umm... show off thier WONDERFUL projects. That site, along with Martha Stewart's web site, is the reason why I probably won't do well on my test tomorrow. Oh well. At least I have plans for the house...you know, for all my spare time. (insert eye roll here)

Soooo, I'm going to make this for Deacon's poopy bags! (aka plastic grocery bags...) Isn't it pretty?
And this post at Decorating Obsessed gave me hope for finding a cheap buffet that we can fix up on the cheap:

Everybody now: OOOOOOHHHH AHHHHHHH. I am totally headed to Goodwill ReStore this week...

Lastly - this project is PERFECT FOR MY FIREPLACE. Which currently looks like this:
But following the blogger at Storybook Ranch, I COULD get it to look like THIS:
I COULD go on about how I want to spray paint the toilet-paper and soap cubbyholes in the bathroom to make them look oil-rubbed bronze, or how I'm going to paint the tile in there so it doesn't look like 1965 exploded... but that's for another day. I REALLY need to get back to studying...congestive heart failure isn't as glam at DIY, but I am in nursing school. Sigh.

Hi- thanks for the comment on my blog! I just painted my fireplace too. If you want to check it out click on "Living Room" on the right of my blog and you should find it pretty quick. And if you really don't want your little Keep Calm, I'd take it off your hands! Just shoot me an email or something I guess. Thanks again!
