New Dining Wall

Okay- so this was a long time coming. And the truth is, I think I will constantly be adding and taking away from this wall...but right now, I LOVE IT! So I had to share! I believe every single thing on this wall was purchased from the DI, Calvary Thrift store, or given to me. WOOT WOOT! 

 Here is my doggie silhouette that I did a few weeks ago. The little molding shelf thing I got for 75 cents at DI, and the owl I got for $1 at DI. It used to be brown and I painted it yellow and glazed it. The print I got from here. It's free.  The oval frame I got for $1 at the DI! It had some ancient painting in it of a flower or something, so I updated it with some CUTE fabric I didn't know what to do with. 

Here is my "all you need is love" painting! Again, this used to be some oldy landscape painting that I just frankly wasn't into. So I just painted right over it! I love it. The gold plate thing I got like over a year ago for a buck. DI. My fav store. I got that big oval frame for 2 bucks at Calvary thrift. The small gold oval frame was 75 cents at DI.

This gold ornate small oval frame was a buck at DI. Again just put my own fabric in! That little BABY  frame with the victorian lady in it was 31 cents at Calvary thrift! 

I know this style isn't everyone's cup of tea (might be too crowded? I durno) but I SERIOUSLY love it. It is totally what I think is my style, which I have a hard time putting in words for people when they ask me.  That frame on the other wall is where I always put my holiday prints...SO excited to put up halloween!

Please ignore the really attractive dog food sitting there (next project- dog food station that is ACTUALLY attractive).

As far as the other randoms on the shelves...the tile decor on the left was from a thrift store in Waldport, OR for like $10 bucks I think? My mom bought it for me (even though she wasn't with me! haha). It was purchased like...2 years ago or more. The turquose vase on the right used to be gold, but I spray painted it turquoise. The candle and jar used to be clear but I spray painted those as well. Both those mugs I got from DI like 3 years ago or more. The books I just had :) THOSE are definite ones I'd love to replace when I get cuter ones. But they'll do. It's hard to tell but there is a mug thingy on the left side that is metal or stone or something? It's heavy duty and looks like it belongs at a knights round table. Clay LOVED it and we got it from DI like...4 years ago. 

I seriously can't believe how many things I've gotten from the DI! Or any thrift store from that matter. I didn't even realize it. Anyway- that's that! I think I will go sit on my couch and just stare at it now.

Side note- I just did quick math on my collage and I think I really only spent $9 total to do that. Obviously it's all worth more but half was given to me or I just had already. I only spent $9 of my money on this wall! Happiness.
