while visiting my cousin robin the other afternoon, i couldn't help but snap this picture of her office renovation.  (that's a blurry shot of her on the left side of the screen.)  her color palette is positively twisted.  what you can't see is, the other three walls are painted turquoise.  here's how she decorated virtually on a dime:

-her desk top is a painted white door that she was no longer using.

-the two bases for holding the door, are banged up (think america pickers) dressers, she found in a garage. 

-her crates, new from home depot, make for extra storage and hold  used and bruised bi-fold doors, which were taken apart to use as shelves.  also, painted white. 

-not pictured:  gift wrap, which she'll cut up and use as accent pieces and colors.  the gift wrap cost maybe $1.49? 

i'm guessing this whole home-office re-decorating project, cost her well under a hundred dollars.....

-oh, and the best part?  those dresser bases will be having THE COOLEST green glass doorknobs inserted into them!  and that's not all........ she's on he look-out for a prissy, little, shabby chic chandelier.  which i'm sure i'll drool over!  smile, wink, nod!

She is very clever and I love her decorating. The very best on a DIME. I feel anyone can make something look good if you spend lots of money. She find all these great things from other people junk. just love it.
