Saving Money

I'm going to brag a little bit.

Today I saved us at least $200-300 in decorating/updating costs.  Wanna know how?

I bought some spray paint, at less than $4 a can, instead of buying 65 new cabinet handles, at $4-5 a piece.

handles before

The before.  Ugly, dated brass.

handles after

The after.  Updated black.

Sadly I need one more can to finish the project.  I have lots of handles waiting to get the final touches.  I also painted 5 closet knobs.

In other news...Mickey took the day off to enjoy the lovely 66* weather and to watch some of the March madness games.  We all had a busy evening with a sports banquet and an orchestra concert to attend.  We all did our best to dress in green to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
