31 Days Of Decorating With (Re) Purpose- Adding Bling


I have a thing for bling. Oh yes I do. I would sparkle up everything in our home, but my husband does draw the decorating line somewhere. I can’t walk by this aisle in Hobby Lobby without stopping to admire the shiny details.

Then, I go into sticker shock and keep walking.

Being thrifty does force creative thinkings hand. We are redecorating our bathroom, one small project at a time. Remember those frames I said to start gathering? Here is example number one… this particular frame has been reused in several ways. It is a favorite find, the frame inserts are slightly inside, to create a shadow box effect. I took at chance at dressing it up to match the other bathroom projects.

A large bag of clear gems can be purchased for $2.99, and most weeks allow you to print off a 40% coupon.

Since this will be in a humid room, a strong adhesive was in order. This is a GREAT one, but let me warn you. It stinks!!! A far-reaching smell, open a window if possible.

And, if you use it consider disposable gloves. It took several handwashings and a shower, and I could still smell it on my hands. I won’t make that mistake to be bare fingered again.

Do you enjoy mimicing ideas you see at stores to fit your budget and/0r style?
