So lately, since it's actually starting to feel like Spring, I have felt the tug once more to purge stuff! I've used this Depression Era quote in our home before, but I think it's high time it becomes one of our mottos!
I really do love this quote. So, in thinking along these lines, I needed to spruce up Baby Girl's room! We are kinda tight right now on funds, so I have to use what we have! Enter said quote. Here's what we had before. This wasn't awful, but I was tired of looking at the food storage ever time I walked in there. The curtains had been there since we moved in....two years ago. I know. DISGUSTING!
I am proud of our food storage though....
We had bought the wire "curtain rod" and the clips last December while my honey and I were in Chicago! We live a minimum of 8 hours from the nearest IKEA and sometimes it kills me. My honey put it up for me without asking where I wanted it, so needless to say, I was nervous!

The rest of the room was easy. I used a green flat sheet we had and replaced the yucky curtains (we have lots of sheets). We ended up having to buy this little shelf since we didn't really have a dresser, nor the space to put a dresser. It was cheap and extremely easy to put together, so I'm not complaining. The dresses were hung on an extra curtain rod I had stashed in a closet. Somehow we ended up with extras so I thought this would be perfect for now. Eventually, we will have to think up something else, but for the time being, this works great!
All in all, I say we spent about $36 on this whole thing. The pictures I had from when my oldest was a baby and I had bought them at the dollar store! The lamp was given to us and the rocking chair was my mother's. Excellent! A good use of the UWMD method if I do say so myself!
Look! She loves it!
