Thrifty is Awesome.

I'm getting ready to head out the door to do some shoppin'...without kids! Yippee! My hubby got to take a mini-vacation to California last week to certify in scuba-diving with his bro, so this week it's my turn! And shopping without children in tow is pretty much a vacation for this mom! I'm excited to go to Home Depot and pick up a whole bunch of painting supplies for my first foray into furniture painting. Never thought I'd be so excited to go to Home Depot! I'll confess, I'm a little scared when it comes to learning to paint anything! But hey, it's just pieces of wood, and every talented person out there had to start somewhere, right? Right!

One of my friends on Facebook recently posted about her friend Brooke Ulrich of the awesome All Things Thrifty. Brooke is an amazing do-it-yourselfer who has an awesome knack for decorating on a budget. I absolutely love her colorful style! Recently she helped a friend of hers do a complete makeover on her entryway, living room and kitchen, and the transformation blew me away! She completely infused Jill's already beautiful home with color, charm and personality. Now I find myself wishing Brooke didn't live 4 hours away so she could come help me with my house! Here's a peek at Jill's new living room:

(Ohmygoodness, the blue. I love the blue, especially that adorable tufted bench!)

Brooke has tons of tutorials on her blog, which have given me the exact motivation I needed to get going on the projects I've been thinking about. She has lots of tried and true info about painting, glazing, and reupholstering furniture, along with lots of fun interior design ideas. She showcases so many fun, different projects and always gives advice on what products she uses and likes best. Her blog was exactly what I've been looking for! 

Well I gots to go...I have far too many places I hope to get to besides Home Depot, including DI and some fun boutiques! I'll be back to write about another awesome, inspiring woman tonight. I can pretty much promise you you'll want to follow her blog for the rest of forever.

Happy Saturday! ;)
