Favorite True Value Product

The gold spray paint is fabulous!

Best Quick Tip

My best tip is that you don't have to sacrifice upscale style if you're on a budget. Using items like spray paint, mouldings, and fabrics can help make your home uniquely yours and very chic even on a budget.

About

I'm from San Antonio but currently residing in Beeville, Texas with my husband Daniel and our dog Pee Wee. I started my lifestyle blog, Monica Wants It, in April 2009 as a way to chronicle the random things I wanted to buy online (so I could quit bugging my friends and hubby). Eventually it morphed into a blog featuring crafts, DIY home decor, weight loss struggles and tasty recipes. When I'm not blogging, I can usually be found shopping, playing Just Dance, or out enjoying South Texas with friends and family. Of all the topics I blog about, my fave topic is sharing creative, affordable, and easy DIY projects to make all homes beautiful and personal.
