Home Decor DIY with Jess

My friend Jess is secretly crafty. I say this because it’s not what she’s passionate about. It’s not what she blogs about. Heck… it’s not even something she tweets about. But go to her house and you’ll see a plethora of home decor craftiness!

Jess and I have gone thrift store shopping together several times. She has a knack for buying something hideous and making it into something beautiful. I like to think I have that same talent… but I’m lazy and my trashy treasures pile up until my home looks like an episode of Hoarders.

The picture in this post is a real picture taken in Jess’ home. I was with her when she bought the vases and the little table. It was a dusty, beat up, piece of wood and Jess made it look like it was in a magazine.

Go ahead and hate her… then copy her style. She likes it.

    You posting this does two things for me. 1) my heart is smiling from valve to valve for having you showcase this transformation and 2) you’re making me want to go thrifting like bad

    I heart you.
