I recently posted a little collage on Instagram (@texasdecor) that included a handful of projects we've done around the house. I got a great response and thought I'd post links to them in case you're new here. :)
But first, I wanted to share my very first "blog inspired" project from way back in 2009...
You were probably expecting something a little more substantial, huh? :) This is a framed print I bought at K-Mart for a whopping $10 about 15 years ago. I needed something to fill a big wall in my bathroom and just kinda grabbed this as a "this will do for now and I'll replace it later" item. I never dreamed I'd still have it all these years later. Lol!
The frame was originally gold. At the time (2009) I had just started reading blogs and it seemed everyone was spray painting everything either black or ORB (oil rubbed bronze) I jumped on the bandwagon, bought a can of black spray paint and went to town on that gold frame. It was the very beginning of what was to become a love affair with blogs and diy. :)
We've since completed MANY blog-inspired projects. Here are links to just a few...
(I still can't believe we painted our kitchen cabinets for around $200!)
(Wow! This pic is a blast from the past! Our family room has changed dramatically since then!)

Well, that's it for now. Hopefully I was able to inspire a few of you to go for it and do a project or two you've been wanting to try. :)
