weekend rehab

With all of the running around at market and entertaining into the wee hours of morning that the past month has included, it's safe to say that I did not wake up in the mornings feeling like P. Diddy. It's easy to get caught up in the lights and parties of Las Vegas, but I think being called 'grounded' is one of the best compliments I've received in the last 7 months. I've decided to devote this entire weekend to creativity and relaxation! One of my goals for 2010 was to finally furnish my spare bedroom and buy a dresser for my room and while I have made progress on this, it takes a lot of love to make a home and I think adding personal DIY touches is just the way to do that. I don't have much money to spend, but I'd like to knock out at least two:
{re-paint the chest of drawers I bought and add cute knobs, like this one from anthropologie}
 
{thrift a really cool chair and re-upholster it for my computer nook}
{I would also love a comfy velvety chair to throw clothes on (let's be real) in my bedroom}
 {thrift cool vintage frames/buy cheap black ones to share my favorite photos/prints/cards}
{finally hang these curtains I bought at IKEA so my windows look less like prison cells} 
  
{attempt to make a necklace like this}
{it appears simple, but I'll let you know...}

Crossing my fingers for a productive and creative weekend!!
