~lisa leonard giveaway & questions answered~

 First of all thank you so much for all your sweet comments on Cody's room makeover!
It's so nice to hear from all of you, and I am hoping I can answer some of your questions today!

First off though, I'd like to get to today's fabulous giveaway brought to you by Lisa Leonard Designs.
Y'all know I just love Lisa's jewelry, so I am thrilled she wanted to do another giveaway!
Lisa has a new pewter line of jewelry, you can find it here.
Mighty gorgeous if I do say so myself! 
Today she is offering 2 of you readers each a $50.00 gift card to her shop!
All you have to do is sign up for her newsletter here, and then leave me a comment back here letting me know you did so!
I will pick a random winner on Friday!
Good luck to all of you!

Now, a lot of the questions I received were on the wire basket on Cody's nightstand.
It was a gift from my mom last Christmas and she got it at a hardware store that sells home decor as well, located in Snoqualmie Washington.
I thought it was made by Two's Company, but it hit me today that the brand of it is Creative Co-op.
I found some here, 
sold in a set of three.
I searched the internet and couldn't find the one that I have.
It is larger, standing about 21" tall. 


Another question I received was about the drop cloth curtains. 
Someone was asking about the seam in them and wanting to know if it was pintuck detail.
Well, I wish, but no, it's the seam that came in the drop cloth :) 
I didn't do anything fancy there!

The sliding door seemed to be quite a hit as I got a lot of emails inquiring about it.
One person said they got a bid for a professional to install one for $1800.00.
Um, I don't think so.....
The whole tracking system was under $150.00.
I have a friend who gets hers at the feed store.
Just ask at your local hardware store or feed stores.
I do know our Home Depot did not carry them.


I LOVE how the window looks bigger......
I got the idea from here, check it out, this girl is so smart!

Also, by no means are we rich.
We do everything on a budget. 
I realized after I did that post there was a lot of Restoration Hardware this, 
and Restoration Hardware that. 
Let me clarify. 
We have a Restoration Hardware Outlet close by and I shop sales.
Also, before I bought anything new for Cody's room, I sold something first to friends or on craigslist.
Not that I feel like I need to justify this all to you, I just don't want to come across braggy.
I splurged on some things, but skimped on others, like the free posters for example.

So that's it, it you have any other questions, feel free to email me:
lakeliving4@msn.com
as I'd like to leave this comment section open for giveaway comments! 
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
xoxo

I don't think you came across as someone braggy....just someone thrilled with the outcome of the room... who wouldn't be. I think everyone asking questions admire what you did and getting tips on doing things on a budget is a gift to others...thanks for sharing...Regard Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

You certainly don't have to justify how or where you spent your money, but I'm so glad you let us in on your Restoration Hardware secret and your tip about selling things on CL to put towards new decor!!! It helps me realize that more expensive things ARE within my reach, it just requires a little creativity and forethought! (something I already *know* but I have to be reminded sometimes!) THANK YOU! LOVE the new room!

Melanie: The name of that hardware in Snoqualmie is Carmichael's. Not only do they have cute home decor stuff but the hardware section is amazing. My husband loves to go there because they carry hard to find stuff. I love your son's room! Diana
