As a general rule, I hate HGTV’s show, Design on a Dime. No, I don’t purport to have a money tree in my backyard thereby not needing cost-saving decorating ideas. I just cannot abide when they ruin totally boring rooms with cheap decoupage walls, curtains that are “hemmed” with tape and a ridiculous amount of construction paper and “found objects.”
And, then they go and tell you that they bought 5 cans of paint for, “Just twenty-five dollars!”. (WHERE CAN YOU BUY THAT MUCH PAINT FOR $25?!)
Then they’re all, “And we could have bought this shelf in the stores for $55.00 — but since I brought my handy CARPENTER who owns EVERY TOOL YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED and he has a whole TRAILER full of EXTRA WOOD we’re making this shelf for just five dollars!”
This past weekend I actually liked the outcome on the show. It was kitchy. Fun. And well, you could tell the woman who lived there was single because ain’t no man gonna have that in his kitchen.
It was, the “Eclectic kitchen with Vintage and Modern Elements.” (Their capitalization, not mine.)
The pictures don’t do it justice. It was whismy and fun. And, it had birds.
