Thrifty Nifty Nest  Erin ✨Dallas, Texas. My home journey on a budget 🏑

Week 2 of operation Get My Own House In Order and Tackle Some Projects and I've run out of profanities and πŸ’©s. For real! I'm grateful to be able to do it but "enjoying" the process can not, with honesty, be proclaimed. If you're in the Dallas area and know of someone who can strip a piece of furniture, you will be my favorite of all time most loved person ever πŸ˜‚. This is my dining room which has nothing to do with the above except I'm still looking for a rug for under the table (from @pier1) chairs from Ikea Goodnight, sweet friends! ❀️ #diyhome #diningroom #whiteinteriors #classyinteriors #cottagestyle #homedecor #interiorinspo #homestyling #homestaging #blueandwhite #chinoiserie #traditionalhome #bhghome #whitefurniture #luxuryhome #homeimprovement #woodfloors #interior9508 #springdecor

Approximately 3 times a year, I actually mop these floors. Don't judge, I do sweep them almost daily.πŸ˜€πŸ™‹ And approximately 3 times a year my sons ask me if we're having company over because it's such a rare spectacle for all of us so it, of course, had to be photographically documented. Tagging the sources here if you want to know where something's from. #whiteinterior #whiteinteriors #livingroom #livingroomdecor #homedecor #woodfloors #hem_inspiration #cottagestyle #homeinspo #interior9508 #lovelyinterior #classyinteriors #luxuryhome #interiorstyling #homestaging #shabbychichome #sharemylampsplus

Do you have nap guilt? I used to many years ago now I know it is essential to my sanity and the well being of those around me so basically, it's an act of service πŸ˜‚. Happy weekend, my friends! Team nap or team I feel guilty? #dontmesswithmynapjam #humor #funnyquotes #parentingquotes #workingmom #parentinghumor

It's been a productive day working on projects in my own home today. Can't wait to share with you what I've been up to! Speaking of projects, how about THIS gem by my friends at @stevetiek (Swipe left to see the after πŸ™ŒπŸ½). He has the cutest family and not only is Steve's work beautiful, but their own home is, as well! Follow @stevetiek for more classically built homes and major design inspiration! #beforeandafter #beforeandafterhomeedition #renovation #kitchendesign #kitcheninspo #remodel #homebuilder #homeinspo #whitekitchen #interiorinspo #kitchenrenovation #kitchendecor #homedecor

I'm taking some much needed time off of working on others homes for the next 2-3 weeks and am going to focus on my own. I've got some projects and makeovers to do and am saying it here so I hold myself accountable! πŸ˜€πŸ™‹ So call me out if I say I spent the day on the sofa binge watching Netflix, mmmkay??? πŸ˜‚ #livingroomdecor #homedecor #livingroomdesign #whiteinterior #smphome #smploves #coastalstyle #modernfarmhouse #traditionalhome

When you get up early on a Monday morning to exercise and see that you're out of coffee and your yoga pants (that have never actually experienced yoga but they're stretchy and were $10 on clearance) are dirty and you're like, "Nope!" Anyone else? πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹ In unrelated news, got these cute mirrors last week and I'm digging em'! Sharing links for my budget friendly room on my stories today. Found similar items too! #bedroom #bedroomdecor #overstockstyle #whiteinteriors #whiteinterior #classyinteriors #mybhg #bhghome #homedecor #home styling #homestaging #bedroomgoals #glamstyle #tablestyling #smploves #lovelyinterior #interior9508

May 1...when I was young, my mom would fill eggshells with flowers from her garden and we'd put them on the doors of our friends, ring the bell and hide. It was a May 1 tradition and it was special. And schools used to celebrate with a Maypole. That's a long gone tradition that I wish would come back! #springdecor #bhghome #bhgflowers #homedecor #whiteinterior #tablescape #homestyling #interiorstyling #vignette #blushpink #glamstyle #whitekitchen #livingroomdecor #hem_inspiration #classyinteriors

I was artificially kept alive and upright by coffee today..hence this pic of part of my kitchen I never share. Behold, the coffee station, aka, the giver of "Get Stuff Done" #kitchen #whitekitchen #kitchendesign #paintedcabinets #homedecor #kitcheninspo #kitchenideas #kitchendecor

Getting real. Real vulnerable, real risking sounding like a weirdo but..I want to explain why I started this IG account and it has nothing to do with me thinking my house was so fabulous, everyone needed to see it. Quite the opposite. Maybe you've been there, maybe you're there, maybe you know someone who is but I hope this can reach 1 person who nods their head and says "me! πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ½ because I didn't have that when I was in the place I'm about to divulge here...to friends and thousands of strangers. Vulnerable, indeed. About 4 yrs ago, we lost everything financially. Having $50 to your name with a mortgage and 3 kids is a total test of intestinal fortitude. I took on a night job with a catering company, worked with clients during the day, took on tutoring jobs and did it all while taking care of my 3 kids. I sold all of our furniture, most of my clothes and pretty much almost everything besides the basics. I was designing million dollar homes and coming home to a blow up mattress on the floor. But we slowly got on our feet (after a lot of hard work, sweat, tears and pure determination). I'm a nester. Always have been. I make my living off of it. I slowly started to decorate this house. Craigslist was my mall. This account began almost 2 yrs ago to show that you absolutely do NOT need a lot of money or to spend a lot of money to create a space you enjoy. We all want to feel proud of our environment and better yet, to walk in the door after a long day and exhale. Home is and should be our soft spot to land! I work with beautiful furniture and decor every week but in my own home, I've done it all on an extremely small budget. This sofa (Ikea) is the most expensive thing I own in my entire house! We are in a place where we probably could splurge on nicer things but that's just it...it's just things! They're pretty but they don't fill my soul. Faith, family and friends do..and really good coffee. And chocolate. πŸ˜€If you're a new friend (because "follower" sounds so ick to me), welcome to my home and snippets of budget decorating. And laughs.And a gold medal if you're still reading this πŸ₯‡β€οΈ#realtalk #homedecor #homeinspo #whiteinterior #livingroom
