Thrifty Interior Design * Vintage Decor * DIY

I love decorating and finding unique and vintage things and frugal ways to furnish and organize our home, the Blue Cottage, so I started blogging about thrifty interior design and DIY projects.

It doesn’t take a lot of money to have a beautiful, stylish home — I’ll show you how!

In my blog series called My Dream Home I take on one room at a time — the kitchen or the living room — and show you how I would decorate it on a budget.

AmandaI splurged on those hanegrs this Christmas and redid our entire closet. Love how much space we gained. The basement under the bed is incredible. Your area looks bigger though. . . Do you have a king bed? Our queen doesn’t give us a ton to work with underneath it. Great job!

Hey Girl. Wow, look at you go. First, wow, you have over 18,000 Twitter followers! Way to go. I’m so glad you are doing decorating now. What a fun topic (and close to my heart). Let me know if I can help in any way. Feel free to read my blog for some trend ideas. (I just created an FAQ page that highlights my key blog topics).

BTW, remember the First Friday group you came to? Believe it or not, I’m trying to teach them how to blog (about their businesses, just like I do).

Take care.

I enjoyed your cool storage ideas post! Wonder if interior decorating can be self taught and turn professional?

So glad you enjoyed it! Why not? I bet there are many decorators who turned a hobby into a professional career. If I had more time, I’d love to be a decorator or home stager.
