Decorating Ideas for Poor People (The Happiness Challenge Day 20)

My kitchen cabinet knobs don't match and I like it that way. This makes me happy.

I got the idea because I wanted new cabinet hardware but couldn't afford 25 new knobs at one time. One knob can run you $14! No, thank you. Do I look like a member of the 1 percent?

So I started going to Anthropologie and picking up knobs I liked from the sale bin. A buck here, $2 there, $3 tops. I bought them two or three at a time over the course of several months. That's my recipe for getting a look that you won't see next door or down the street or at the Joneses. I don't know who the Joneses are, but they really need to get the sticks out of their arses.



That's all the happiness I have for you today. I've been up since 5 a.m. and I'm tired and weepier than usual. I'm like one of those dumb ass contestants on The Bachelor, sleep-deprived, drinking cocktails, crying over some douchebag not giving me a rose.

Hold on a minute, that doesn't sound like me. I'm a tough broad and I cannot be expected to follow the FCC rules of an ABC reality show. I'm more like Jules. Tired and refusing to take any shit and cursing like Samuel L. Jackson. Does Marcellus Wallace look like a bitch? 

Yep, that's me tonight. So here's a happiness bonus. Yes, this makes me happy.

  1. I'm totally stealing this idea! My kitchen is one of my happy places; when I do a blog on it for this Happiness Challenge, you'll see why these mismatched knobs will fit right in!
