Everything old is new again in this year's boutique hotel style decorating trend
. This is great news for DIY'ers who love refreshing and re-purposing old pieces and unique finds. Sometimes we get stuck in our own space, feeling like we know it too well and can't think of any way to improve it without making major changes. Sometimes we just need a little inspiration and advice. Enter Christine Botta. She loves to decorate and has an eye for style. On her website, Thrifty decorating
she offers tips on decorating with a budget, great DIY projects, and best of all free consulting!
Browse through her gallery of projects or ask for some advice of your own. Send her pictures of the space and items your working with and she'll help you figure out the best way to go forward. I simply love her instructions on how to build a vanity
. This is no ordinary vanity, it will be the highlight of your room and you're sure to feel glamorous ever time you sit down. If you went out and hired a decorating consultant not only would they charge you some serious coin, but they would recommend products and designs that would leave you broke.
If you're looking for creative result and want to DIY but need some guidance, Christine is there for you.
