Thrifty Nifty Home Finds

In April I started work on a gallery wall in our family room and shared the pics of the beginnings. I still felt like it wasn't full enough for the wall and I needed to add a couple more items to create the impact I was going for.

So of course, I headed to the local Habitat Store to see what I could find on the cheap and I actually came out with some great finds!

I picked up these two great plants prints with gold frames for $2.50 each and a neat little picture titled "Pilgrimidge to Canterbury" for only $2.00. I loved the size of this piece and thought it would work great on the wall.



I enlisted the help of Mike to place the pictures in different places on the wall, fitting into the existing gallery already hanging, and picked the placement I liked the best. A couple of nails later,we were done. Here's the before and after, just to show the difference.


 I really like the finished product and feel like it fills out the space perfectly!

And just because I was taking pics of the den, I thought I'd show you the rest of my eclectic living area. Most of the fun finds I've picked up at local thrift stores and yard sales. I've found a great way to fill up my built-ins with interesting items is to pick up old books at the Habitat store for $1.00 and remove the paper covers. They bring a lot of interest and fun to the room.




It's certainly not the clean lines and modern look we had in our previous townhome, but I love the fun look of this room and I'm going to call it officially DONE!!
