With my $10 J.C. Penny coupon I got in the mail, I bought 2 tank tops in the same gray color. Since the tank tops were only $6 each, I ended up only paying $2 for these.
One tank was used to cut the ruffles for the other. This project only took me 15 minutes or less. I also made a white one using layered flowers that I cut out. I'll have to post a picture of it later, since it is currently in the wash.

My husband and I are building a new house. My husband is the general contractor on the house, which means a TON of work. It also means we can customize the house however we'd like for a lot less than if someone else built the house for us. For example, we purchased a $2,000+ brand new chandelier for $25. We bought it from a Reception center that accidentally bought one too many chandeliers and didn't end up needing or using the extra one. We also got a $2,500 cement fireplace for $200. It has a few cracks in it (which is why we got such a fantastic deal) but those can be easily fixed. We should start sheet rocking next week... so prepare yourselves for some interior design posts as I get ready to design the inside of our new home. I'll leave you with some inspiration I've been collecting. *Feel free to leave any links to your own inspiration in the comments below. :)
