20.00 Change

Want to see how you can make a big ol' exciting change for cheap? Okay, truth be told it's not big nor is it exciting. But it is a change, and for less than the price of a night out at dinner or something equally as fun but more of a want and not a need. Which is what the Mr. keeps reminding me of during this spending freeze we're.still.in.

That got off topic fast.

Okay so the handles on the entertainment unit bugged me. Big time. I mean, to anyone visiting they might not really notice them but when you live with them every day and they're super contemporary and I'm more traditional meets vintage meets whatever sparks in my crazy mind, they weren't doin' it for me.


So home depot it was.


They're actually the same pulls that I used on the dresser because I love them so much. But that's how I spent 20.00 on a want and it made me smile a lot. It really is the little things.


I could have at least vacuumed for you huh? Oh well. This is life. Guess what else we've done to the family room? Painted! But I'll show you that later this week. Goodbye Cliveden Gray, I sure have loved you, but it's time for a change. 

How about you? Have you made any small changes to your place that weren't really necessary but made your heart happy?

oooh they make me smile too!! That reminds me I need to buy one of them to hold chalk on dd's chalkboard. (flipped upside down).

I can't think of anything specific but I do change up my place all the time, just because!

$20 bucks well spent in my book! You are so right about the little things! Just the other day, I saw a layout of beds in a bedroom that got my mind ticking....off I went with my idea and wrenches to the boys room-and I am so happy I did. I love little changes,makes me smile too! Good Job!

I can truly understand your happiness. I feel like this after even the smallest re-arrangement in the house! Isn't it good to find happiness in small things :)
Cheers!!
