When you're cash poor, you can't buy new furniture or hire a decorator.

No Brainer, right?

Who doesn't like new things? I don't love old looking things, but I can't always afford new to buy new stuff even though I want to.

 This blog is like an experimental documentation for me. I will be trying to make the old looking, outdated things we have updated, decorating on the cheap, and personalizing decor to my  and boyfriend's) taste. and showing the projects that flop, as well as the ones that work well.

The first few posts will probably be about painting. I have a storage unit full of old furniture and decor that doesn't really work with the design aesthetic I have in my mind, and the storage unit is a great place to paint, so that's where I'll start.

I have a couple hope chests that I would like to strip and re-stain eventually, and some more wood furniture to stain also.  Pinterest, Apartment Therapy, and other blogs help me find inspiration, as well as DIY network, HGTV, and other home improvement shows.

I love color, my favorite color is teal.

I am 26 years old.

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend Keith for almost 4 years

I have a beauty blog. hair this, hair that...

I love cats. I love shopping. I love food. :)

Oh, and my name is Whitney..  ;)


  1. You have the vision Whitney. Good job! I enjoy doing the same stuff, it can be very rewarding to revive old things. Thanks for sharing. ~Tricia Coulson
