Big news AND diy space-saving tips!!!

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.

What's the big news? Well, good news is The Hubby started a nn job and he LOVES it. The bad news.... we've had to pack up and move for this job. Actually, that's not really the bad news. The bad side of this move means a major hold has been placed on my projects, mainly furniture as I won't have access to all my tools. :(

We're searching for a place to live but most likely we'll be renting a little apartment. Again, not really suitable for furniture making. So I apologize for skimping on the posts the last few weeks during our transition.

For now I'll be searching for space saving ways to decorate our new place. With spring and warm weather upon us I thought I'd start with decorating the patio. Below are a few ideas that would work well for apartment living

GARDENING
Here's a great way to save space AND money! A shoe organizer to plant a ton of herbs.

A game for the kiddos? Maybe even for the adults? Here's an easy way to get everyone outside having fun.

DECORATIONS
You all know I love chalkboards. While this might not necessarily be space-saving, it's adorable!

 Of course I'll need to take along my Stump Table. It's small and cute!

So our big fire pit obviously isn't going to work well on an apartment patio. One or two of these might be a few good alternatives.
