Facelift Friday

For the rest of the summer I will be having Facelift Friday.

Every Friday I will share an easy project that will cost next to nothing.

I have so many projects that I want to accomplish and so many of them are just like things here and there waiting for my attention.

Hopefully we can all get inspired to give our homes a little facelift this summer.

We recently bought a vintage dresser for our bedroom.

Our bedroom has gotten the least amount of attention in our home and I am hoping to change that this summer.

The dresser is smaller than the piece that was there before.

I needed to fill the space but I didn't want to spend anything.

I started searching through the house for little things that were not needed in the place they were at and made a wall collage with everything.

It was so easy and fast.

I put this up while the children were watching cartoons this morning.

A wise person might actually lay it all out on the floor first…but I just started banging nails all over the place!

I  know I will tweak it and change it up a bit as I find more things to add.

I love how it turned out…and the best part is that I had everything already in the house!

If you have a little facelift project that you would like to share we would all love to see!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    Facelift Fridays! Love it!!
    That dresser of yours has beautiful bones. Gorgeous.
    I love the wall….my hubby would pop a vein if he saw/heard me banging holes in our walls!
    And the musical instruments – heart that idea! You have inspired me to dig up my old clarinet from when I was a kid and put it out!! Happy Friday 😀

    Love the chest of drawers! The wall looks great too! Every piece is different, but grouped together, it all fits.

    Totally fabulous. I love this dresser. It is exactly what I have wanted. I like the mirror up high like that. Looks wonderful in your room. You lucky girl. 🙂

    You have such a great eye for design. Love how you hung up the instruments as art! I never lay anything out first either…lots of holes in my walls 🙂

    Hi…just found your blog. I love your style and your photography is gorgeous! Our bedroom is still a work in progress as well…which is how it should be in design I think….taking your time to find just the right things. I love what you did with the wall collage…beautiful!

    you should make a little widget and start this for real Jeanne……I’m in…..and the master is my current project is well – I even bought curtains (which I NEVER do) and have promptly put them back into their neat little packages and taking them back…….forget it man…..I’m doing it all myself
    what a gorgeous display you made – it says so much of your personality…….fun interesting 🙂

    Love the facelift. I am with you on just nailing away. Gives the collection the look of an unplanned gathering and will make it easier to add to as you go. You have inspired to shop my house for a blank place or two!

    Jeanne! LOVE it–you are so good. Shopping in your own house can be very surprising…we all so much more stuff than we think, methinks.
    Can’t wait to see what you do next Friday 🙂

    This is so wonderful! I love your collection of things and I agree why plan it out when you can just start hammering away!

    I’m a wild nail-banger too! Your make-over looks great. I’m inspired to fix up several areas of my house, but I wanted to paint the walls first.
