Happy 4th of July!


Hello readers, I don't know about you, but sometimes I have to forget about life and lose myself in a good book. This weekend was full of reading, family, fireworks, and fun!I don't recommend books often because I only recommend them when they are soooo stinkin' good that I can't put them down. I definitely recommend these two books. I give them both 5 stars. TWO thumbs up. You. Will. Love. Them. They are called The … [Continue reading...]

Do you have a flat screen TV with ugly brackets to mount it like this one?In order to hang our LCD TVs or flat screens on the wall, we have to use large industrial brackets to secure them in place. After the TV has been hung, most of the brackets are hidden, but from the side, sometimes the brackets peek out, and I have been searching for a thrifty way to cover up those ugly LCD TV brackets for a while. I have this … [Continue reading...]

Feature Friday: Desk Redo by Amanda!


One main point that I try to make through All Things Thrifty is that no one should be afraid to paint over wood. Yes, I said PAINT over wood. Sometimes I think this is the biggest hang up for people. They think, well, I don't like it, but it is a wood/oak/mahogany color that is in good shape.This is my advice. If you don't like the color, who cares if it is wood. PAINT IT. Amanda did just that. She primed the bad boy … [Continue reading...]

Curved Shower Curtain Rod


When decorating a bathroom, a fun way to change the shape of the room is to include a curved shower curtain rod into the design. I loved this curved curtain rod. I got the chance to help decorate this bathroom, so I thought it would be fun to show you a few pictures. This particular bathroom is decorated around the shower curtain colors. Which is perfect due to the neutral color on the walls. The shower curtain came … [Continue reading...]

Dining Room Table Transformation!


Have you ever worked on a project for so long that you forgot when you actually started? :) I've had this table in my garage for quite some time. She needed extra love and extra effort, but man her transformation has been FUN!  It was love at first sight! I knew when I first saw her, that she had potential. I even looked past her mismatched colors. I loved her octagon shape, and I LOVED that she came with two … [Continue reading...]
