Guest Post: Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof!!!

I'm over the moon excited to share Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof with you today! Jenna has fast become one of my mentors in blogging and I'm so happy and grateful that she has agreed to stop by and visit with all of us as a guest blogger.  I know you'll love her style, so follow her blog, follow her on FB and Pinterest, as well....because she always has a clever idea up her sleeve!  Thank you so much, Jenna, for being such a happy influence in my life and the life of Commona-my House! {and Jenna is sharing ME with her readers today, too, so pop over to Rain on a Tin Roof to read my guest post about Commona-my House!}

Hi Y'all! I'm Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof. Let me first say that I am so happy to be guest posting here at Commona-my House with Amy. I am even more happy to have stumbled upon Amy's amazing blog and met a new blogger friend! 

So, a little about me. 

First off, I am terrible at "About Me-s." In fact, so terrible, that I use pictures (entertaining ones) on my own About Me page at Rain on a Tin Roof. Its quite comical. In short, I'm a southern gal who loves some serious thrifting, crafting, re-purposing, and home diy-ing, which is what my blog is all about. This decorating thing started early for me. While other 14 year olds wanted to read Seventeen, I was reading Christopher Lowell's Seven Layers of Design (Does anyone even remember Christopher Lowell?!), and re-arranging my bedroom. I can handle a power saw with the best of 'em, but tend to make my Grunt Labor (hubby) use the power tools. (It makes him feel special to be needed. Total reverse psychology, y'all.)  A comfortable, eye-pleasing room just warms my soul, and makes me dang proud its mine. I love turning something old and decrepit into something new and amazing. I even started carting my daughter around to yard sales when she was a month old, its important to train 'em early around here. My whole decorating mantra is to do it frugally. Thrift it. Craft it. DIY it. If this hasn't bored you enough, you can read more about me here

In the spirit of frugality, I thought I would share with you some of my most frugal decorative pieces.

DIY Decorative Horse Accessories

These bad boys started out as plastic toys, but they turned into gorgeous accessories. Guess how much I have in these?! Less than $1! BAM! Read more about them here. They were super easy to make. 

Frugal Way to Dress up Cabinets

I used $0.50 wrapping paper to line the back of my liquor cabinet. Instant eye candy on the cheap and easy! Click here to read more about it. 

Lattice Hook Storage

Need some frugal and decorative storage? I had this piece of lattice left over from another project. I spray painted it, added some knobs and instant storage. Read more he re

I'm currently in the middle of a master bedroom makeover. Not surprisingly, I'm trying to do it as cheap as possible. Wall art is expensive! So, I bought some graphics and backgrounds on Etsy, all for around $15 total and created my own wall art, such as the one you see above. I put them all together on PicMonkey and just printed them out! Read more about the prints and see more here
