  • i have some dried curly willow branches in a vase. i have seen some in Better Homes and Garden magazine, painted bright red, and put in a spiffy vase that you could buy for super expensive. i got my branches free in a flower arrangement from a co-worker, and all i would need is some red spray paint and no one would ever know.

  • Yep! I buy second hand or even garage sale things and either refinish, paint, or just clean up the item and use it. Our house is a huge variety of styles all blended together into what I call 'ecclectic island' style! People always comment about how comfortable and homey it is....and you can decide what you want about whatever THAT means!!!!!

  • yes, lol, most of the things in my house are..our living room, the vocal point in the fireplace.. we bought a used wood burning stove for really cheap and refinished it ourselves.. and then we went out to the beach and collected a lot of large flat stones. Got some cement and wood, and now we have our fire place and mantal/display.
