Out with the old, in with the new

With a divorce comes a lot of new things. A new city, sometimes a new job (in my case, anyway), a new routine, a new NORMAL...and in some cases, a new house.

Well, I'm the lucky one that gets to move. I am going to miss my old house...I picked it out, I spent countless hours decorating it to make it JUST the way I wanted it....but it's time to move on. The place that I am moving in to needs a LOT of work. I went by there yesterday and was a little overwhelmed at just HOW much work it's going to need. But -- it's nothing time, elbow grease, paint & a few other things can't take care of. Thankfully, I have three sisters, their families, and my parents who are more than willing to help.

I wonder if they'll still say that after they've helped to rip up floors, painted seven rooms, and landscaped? ;)

One of the good things about this home is that I can start over. Since we are remodeling 99% of the house....that means I get to pick it ALL out! However, I'm a newly single mom of two small children who is returning to work after being a SAHM for 4 years.
 It goes without saying that it'll HAVE to be done on a serious budget! But that's okay with me.
I loooove bargain hunting -- when I find a good deal for cheap, it makes me so excited!

Here are some ideas I've bookmarked to do when the new floors are in,
walls are painted, house is scrubbed down, etc.

I am in loooove with this simple fabric corkboard. I have plans to pick out great fabric & put it over the dresser in my bedroom -- or maybe in the hall, beside the front door.

I found this pillow tutorial and plan to use it to recover some cheap yard-sale or thrift store pillows to throw around different places.

Those are just a couple of the things I've found the past few days while searching the interwebs to death for cheap decorating ideas. My sisters & I are hitting yard sales and thrift stores in our area this Saturday in search of a lot of things, including but not limited to: pillows to recover, knobs for the kitchen cabinets (I'm picturing some pretty glass ones), curtain rods, cork board, random white plates to make an arrangement on the wall, and most importantly -- I NEED to find a dresser that has LOTS of character so I can paint it and put it in my living room to put the TV on. I'm worried it's going to be a bit hard to find, though. I want it to be sightly taller than a normal dresser, but not as tall as a chest of drawers. Just a tad wider than a chest of drawers, but not as wide as a dresser. LOL.

I can't WAIT to get started next weekend.
 I will definitely be taking before & afters and sharing thoughts & tutorials along the way.

I hope ya'll have a wonderful day! I am off to spend the day with my little sister & my brother-in-law who's turning 20 and 31 today! Happy Birthday Kayla & Kyle -- love ya'll so much!

*Oh CRAP...here comes the waterworks again. I cry at the silliest things since I became a mother!

Definitely sounds like embarking on a fun adventure! Can't wait to see the remodeling before and afters. I just love to see what people can do on a real life budget. :)

I bet you'll have a grand ole' time searching for new-to-you stuff! Are you on FB? check out Cottage Creations and Southern Priss. Both companies are great at finding old pieces and painting them making them sooooo cute! Great inspiration!
