Spray Paint Headache

Yes, I know this is simple to some but I have been searching for the right one of these for a long time. I love these, they are so simple and lovely. Well, except the way these one looks, lol, but for $.75 it had to come home with me! I can't wait to get my other projects done so I can fix up this one.
Oh and this is the greatest ever. I LOVE freecycle, don't you? Brinkman Smoker :)
OH! and here is a little sneak peak of what's been going on in my little house. I'm so excited to actually have the want to create things again. I have the pre-rough draft of how I want our living room to look. I always used to do this then we started moving once a year and I figured what's the point? But we decided (most likely) we will be living here for another year so I need to change up what we are living with. Over the next couple weeks I'll be showing you our living room transformation. No, it won't be as dramatic as some of you house dwellers as we live in an apartment and I can't paint or move walls but I think it'll be perfect.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
