Marty Makes - Decorations for Big Cat's Graduation

My sister, Tisha Rae (aka Big Cat), graduated last week with her MBA. (WUHU) So of course she wanted to throw a bash to celebrate. And of course, I was in charge of decorations. I asked her what her theme was and she busted out with ....zebra! lol. I searched all party stores and decided not to spend $5 for 12 napkins in zebra print. So I took all my vases I had in the cupboard and covered them with zebra print wrapping paper...all for $3.99. I think they came out pretty cute along with the purple flowers and tablecloths.

Short vases covered with zebra wrapping paper filled with costco flowers. I did all six tables for $39. (Two costco bouquets at $13, 6 plastic tablecloths at $1.50,  6 vases (free) wrapped with the $4 paper)

Big Cat and MOTH with her zebra cake! Congrats BC! A me!

Marty Makes - A new guest bathroom

As I was walking down the aisles of Target at 10pm on a Friday night with my husband I came across a pretty patterned shower curtain. This one find easily turned my Target visit from $30 to $100...typical. I came home and put up my new curtain and towels. Then realized maybe I should restain this cabinet, and change the towel racks, oh, and paint color! Small task right? I easily made my Home Depot shopping list and got to work. Here is the before and after pictures. Still a work in progress, but I like it.

Here are a couple of before pictures.

 So in need of my Marty touch!

I stained this to a dark brown. Wait until you see it. It came out really nice!
