Even though I haven’t done a Dollarama post in a long time it doesn’t mean my love affair with the Dollar Store has ended. I’ve still been visiting the happiest place on earth, I just haven’t been posting about it. Things like chickens and gardens and kitchen renovations have gotten in the way.
I still can’t believe I remodelled my kitchen. It makes me feel like such a grown up. You know. Like paying bills and getting shingles, only better.
If you read yesterday’s post you know that I had an outdoor decorating epiphany at Dollarama. I left the store with 3 bags of fake grass squares with the idea of making them into a table runner for my outdoor patio table.
It did it, it looks great, but I had 1 bag of fake grass squares and 1 bag of fake moss squares leftover. So I sat myself down, got myself into a meditative mood and ruminated over what to do with the rest of the fakes. Before my ass even hit the dirt I was standing back up again knowing exactly what I was going to do.
6 moss squares at $2 each = a pretty cool lookin’ wall for $12. Of course it suits my backyard because even though the house is 170 years old, the actual landscaping is very contemporary.
The final DIY with these fake grass squares goes up tomorrow and it’ll probably be the most popular. The one that most people will be able to use and like no matter what style of home you have.
There’s nothing like making something you absolutely LOVE with scraps of crap. Buying expensive, beautiful things is nice too of course, but there’s a certain satisfaction that comes with making something out of nothing. There’s a feeling of self reliance. Of innovation.
Kind of like, if things got really bad, you’re the one who could not only survive the apocalypse but the hole in the ground you call home, would be incredibly attractive too.
Ironically, if the apocalypse were to hit, I’m pretty sure one of the few things to survive would be fake grass.
