Pretty & Functional

 Found an awesome dresser with a broken bottom drawer at a local Habitat Thrift store snagged it for...20$
Guess what I found out to late...it was Old and made of a red wood (not stained that color)
and I painted it. I know I know!
How do I know (I'm no expert, I just liked it and the price) A Good friend who is an expert, cried after I showed her, I almost joined her. I did put up a good front of some simulate of a sad face...just to excited to get it up in my now Girl Room. Lilli has joined forces against all the men in this house, to have a space to create! We even took over a part of the Garage, HA!

 A Curtain Rod found on Clearance...so long ago. Add some Cafe Clips and you have yourself a cheap way to clip up you stickers, rub-ons and anything else (dried/drying herbs, photos, child art...)
 Another find in Clearance @ TJ Maxx add some Ikea Dignitet Curtain Clips another place to hang you stash and it's pretty!

Since the bottom drawer was busted I removed the second drawer and made them shelves.
Have a great weekend!

Love what you did with the TJ Maxx find. I always look at these types of things when I'm in there and wonder what I could do with them - now I know. I already have the digi clips from Ikea so I'll be running out tomorrow to find a stand similar to yours.

Thanks for sharing your idea.
