Future project ideas

Sure, we may not have money NOW, but that doesn't stop a girl from dreaming, right? I have a lot of projects up my sleeve, that are just waiting for a little financial support to get rolling. Luckily most of them can be budget-friendly.

For instance, we plan to upgrade from a full-size to queen-size bed as soon as we're bringing in some more dough. It will mean a new mattress, new sheets, and new bed... and I'm thinking of a fabric covered headboard like the one above. Simple but lovely.

This is terrible, but remember WAY back when I asked for your opinions on framing my For Like Ever poster? Well I still haven't framed it yet (please, no one point out that I've had this now almost two years, in its tube). It's just always been a daunting task and extra expense that got pushed aside. Well I'm committed to actually getting it framed this time. I PROMISE. And if you're curious, I did decide on white mat and white frame, as was the most popular choice.

We have two places in our apartment where I'd love to rip out the standard apartment-fixture or inset light and replace it with a Tole chandelier spray-painted a single color. Problem is, even on ebay they are running over $100. I mean, I don't mind if it's paint job is ugly as sin if it's $50 or under. I'm just going to paint it turquoise or something anyway. Anyone got connections?

When I saw this wall of paintings on Jackie's blog, I nearly died. My mouth dropped open and all I could think was "I WANT." Well call me a collector, because when we have some benjamin's lining my wallet, I'm headed straight to ebay and like five thrift stores to come up with my own fabulous little arrangement.

And lastly, I can't help but dream of a pretty mish-mash of vintage china. I'm undecided if I want to slowly build a matching set or if I'd be ok with mis-matched. I'm thinking a full set, plus an assortment of tea cups and saucers. Just don't know what pattern I want to commit to yet. Guess it's lucky we have a little wait ahead of us before I can start splurging.

What have you got in the home-project hopper? Any projects you're dreaming of completing but have to save up for?
