china cabinet redo

Okay, so pinterest is totally addicting. I've already made a couple of things that I've found on their DIY boards, and have many others that I am looking forward to trying. Like changing up my china cabinet. I remember when my parents bought this dining room suite. I don't have the table and chairs anymore, but still have the cabinet and it is soooooooooooooo 1970! Not my taste at all. I'm a little scared of it. What if I mess it up? I like the look of this one:

I love the antique finish. Mine actually has a hutch with glass doors, and I think I want to take the doors off and either paint or wallpaper the inside. Have any ideas? Ever done this before? I may have questions!

places I love

I've found a few new places that I just love to shop....all online! Who'da thunk it??

I was thinking the other day that the first time I really heard about online shopping was about 14 years ago while living in Shelbyville, TN. I can clearly remember.....using my superduper DIAL UP internet (AOL anyone?) and perusing a few said shops. I don't when the first Christmas was that online shopping became the thing to do, but I remember saying, "I don't like shopping online. I don't trust it. What if your stuff never arrives?" Truly, all valid concerns.

However, I've grown up! I love it, and I love finding new places to visit without changing out of my blue comfy robe!!

Of course, one of my all-time favorite window shopping places is Etsy. I do buy from there occasionally because I love handmade things and I like to support those who are willing to do the work for me.

For shoes, and I do sooooo LOVE me some shoes....I like 6pm. They have awesome sales and good customer service. They also sell clothing and accessories, but I have only used them for shoes. I mean, seriously, when I can get a cute pair of Naturalizers for $15 that had been $60, what's not to love??

For the online shopping that I do, I try to use Mr. Rebate. If you shop through them, you earn cash rebates. I have already earned like $35!

I also adore Coldwater Creek's outlet. I only shop from the outlet and then only when they are having an outlet sale. I have gotten some great deals.

Now, if you have a little money that can splurge on something simply for yourself......try Missus Smarty Pants. For $30 a year, you get shopping tips for your body style for each week. I like it because she features a store each week, and shows you what to go and buy. This week was Target, and I plan to go there (it's tax free weekend here, after all!) and get this:

So, I've definitely gotten on the online shopping bandwagon. One other place of interest that I have only begun to delve into.... pinterest.
