The scrappy makeover!



Back in the day (a coulple years ago) when we moved into our house, we pained the walls around the salon white, just to brightrn it up and make it look a little more finished out there, It also had the "extra" decorations I didn't know what to do with. My grandpa had made a beautiful arch to go above the cake table at my wedding, and I have always had it on display somewhere in the places we lived. Even if it was a pillar here and a pillar there. But after I finished the paint job in the main living are of our house, we had leftover chair rail. I also had just painted my freezer red, and bought a tablecloth I fell in love with at goodwill. I loved the bold colors and design and didn't have a use for it at the time, but knew I could think of something for it. That's when I decided I needed to do something to the salon. The white walls just looked dirty and cold all by themselves, and there was too much clutter showing. So I had to buy a couple $'s worth of chair rail to finish it off, and some clearance trim board from the clearance cut bin at home depot, but that was about it. It was basically all ''scraps''. All the paint was from previous projects, and the decorations were just borrowed from other areas. It feels alot cleaer and warmer out there now. And it only cost me $10, and that includes the chair from the post below. It was fun to finally showcase my grandmothers vintage blowdryer, and vintage razor, and some vintage perm rods. They had been shoved in the back of a shelf for YEARS, and I found them as I was dejunking and cleaning stuff out.
