Before I even start this post, CAN I JUST SAY I GOT THOSE AWESOME ORANGE JEANS AT JCPENNEY'S FOR $1.97 last week?!!!!!
I literally speed walked in to the store for the sole purpose of fulfilling my desperate need of a bathroom. And of course on my speed-walking way out, happened to see a clearance rack and my body wouldn't listen to my mind telling me I didn't have time to shop and the rest is history. I grabbed them, and crossed my fingers that they'd fit and - phew! Like a charm.
Oh yeah, and the shoes were marked down to $.99. That's NINETY NINE CENTS at Dollar General. Don't laugh. It's the only store we have in Parma.
Now that we got that out of the way.
Do you have a drawer full of "Plain Janes"?
Just need to add some pizzazz to your wardrobe without actually going shopping?
Just like in your house, sometimes you can breath new life into a room simply by rearranging the furniture. So rather than heading to the nearest TJMaxx, how about go through what you already have with an open mind, grab a stencil brush, a bottle or two of acrylic craft paint and some Fabric Medium*!

This is my favorite stencil. I've used it on clothes, furniture, rocks, the minivan... (okay just seein' who's actually reading.)
A friend just had twin baby girls. For some reason, I manage to sell all those little girl outfits my daughter outgrew without the matching bloomers! Needless to say, I have this LARGE stash of diaper cover bloomers with nothing to match them. Of course, I figured I could do something with them.... I'm glad the day finally came, especially since my girl's been out of these things for over two years!
Once it dries, always do a quick second coat. You'll be amazed at how much brighter it looks!
Have you stenciled any clothing?
As long as it wasn't your underwear, please share with me in the comments below! :)
