I have been wanting to re-do my pantry to make it pretty like all the GORGEOUS ones I see on Pinterest, but honestly I don't have the money. So I have been saving my jars and their lids for a while now. I have about 6 complete small jars, and 6 complete big jars, and the best part? Their lids are the small color! Score!

A SUPER talented sister in my ward is offering a free pattern! Cassi owns her own business, called Polka Dot Posh. I actually started following her blog a while back before I even knew she was in my ward, CRAZY! I love everything she does! Check out her awesome website and etsy shop!

this project cost me a whopping $0!
The chair I got for free at a Garage Sale that my sister and I had. She found it in her backyard and told me I could have it. (Which I really, really wanted!) She put a "free" sticker on it at the sale (which I didn't know about!) But to my luck it was still there when we were done! Thank goodness!
I looked for a while for the right fabric but couldn't find anything until I went to a swap with my sister and found a white lace table cloth. It was perfect! I used yellow fabric I already had to go under it and replaced the batting and gave it a new paint job! I love it! I had it in my house for about a week before I decided to sell it. I only made $5 but it sold within 2 days it was just a fun little project to keep me busy.

This is actually a double feature. My very good friend gave me this necklace when I was helping her back-up her home. (She used to live 4 doors down.. but now likes 45 minutes away. ;( tear*) Anyways.. Bou was playing with this necklace and she said we could ahve it because she was planning on giving it away anyways.
So basically it's a score! My hubby's brother is getting married next week and her colors are green, white and black so this necklace is perfect! It just needed a little more glam. So with some green nail polish it went from this:
don't you just love it! I sure do! Thanks for the necklace Elise!
This is the second feature, I made this jewelry holder from some cupboard doors that we're on a dresser that was my grandmother. (That dresser is still in our room, it is just a vanity now!) I love it! Can you tell that I love pearls also?

I got this swing for my birthday a few years ago and have already made a new cover for it once. I won't even tell you how much that one cost, because it is just too embarrassing, I can't even believe I spent that much.
But as you can tell the paint is fading and not looking so good. It was time to update it. So I used some left-over paint from a fench that me and Logan did. Bought some sheets from Goodwill and ..
Ta-Da! Isn't she b-e-a-utiful!? I love her! She is so bright and spring-y. I got two different sheets and together I spent about $3.
Totally worth it! My swing looks brand-new! And I love it!

This may be my all time favorite craft. I ADORE my button bouquet. The only thing I purchased was the wire to hold the buttons together, which was $2.50 for 3 yards at Michael's.. then I found the exact same stuff after I already purchased it for $2.00 for 6 yards at Wal-mart! Dang, what was I thinking!

was: $8 Goodwill Table.
now: Baby's tea set table.I found this small table at Goodwill for $10, and of course I had a coupon so it was only $8. Who even knows what this was used for, its to short to be an end table, side table, coffee table or nightstand. No idea. But I love it! Its just right for Baby. I actually really loved the color that it was, but it didn't match Baby's room and the stain was heavy and pealing, so it had to go. I sanded it down to the wood, and I am really glad that I did, because it had 3 different coats of stain! This thing is solid wood and very heavy. Isn't she just a beauty!? Baby that is!

I actually saw this on another blog and just knew I had to make it.
You can find it here.
I choose to use a small frame (99 cents) and an old outdated pillow (99 cents!)
Spray painted him white and cut out a part of the flowers and used the insides from the pillow.
and ta-da! I LOVE it!!

I found this Highchair at Goodwill and it was marked 29.99 except that the 9 was smeared so it was hard to tell what it said. I asked a worker and they said it was 29. I thought that, that was too much to spend (even though it was an Eddie Beauer one from Target that retails for around $200) I had also been looking for a wooden one for a while but passed it up because it had Dog bites all over the bottom and was $30. I came home and told the Mr. about it, the good man that he is encouraged me to go back and buy it. This time a different worker told me that it was $25 (score!) plus I had a 20% off so I only paid $20 for it. Whoo Hoo!!! I made a new cover for it, that only cost $2.00, sanded and stained the whole thing. I love it!

I did not made all of these, but I did make a good portion of them. I did not spend any money on any of the bows (the ones that I made) they were all from scrap fabric. The rest that I did not made were either trades or gifts. I love them all! The frame I got from Goodwill for $5, it had a picture of a baby tiger.. random! But easily re-purposed!
