Announcing the April Challenge Winner for the Cent-Sational Salvage Challenge- Kitchen Utensils!

Naomi & Sage

Plaster and Disaster

 Here is a little bit about our amazing April winners!

Naomi and Sage are the blogging duo behind Plaster & Disaster, where they share their (mis)adventures as first-time homeowners in our fixer-upper houses, without prior experience and with a hefty dose of other responsibilities (like full-time jobs). From small crafts to major home improvements, they chronicle their numerous and incredible successes (while relying heavily on hyperbole), but also the inevitable disasters that happen along the way.

Be sure to check out new posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and scroll through here for a few of their favorite projects since they started blogging in January:

Their first project together, in which they took on a pair of dilapidated Goodwill lamps and each made them over in a different way:



Sage’s hallway and stairwell transformation, which included using fabric to add some pizzazz to her stair risers:


Naomi’s kitchen “half makeover” while she builds up to a full renovation, including using renters’ wallpaper to create a colorful (and temporary) backsplash:


Naomi’s subtle makeover of old drawers using paint and wood polish:


And Sage’s bolder drawers project, creating a colorful coral TV stand from an old craigslist dresser:


And of course, the list wouldn’t be complete without at least one disaster. Here’s a post in which they both confessed to having a bunch of holes in their homes:


Stay tuned to see what they come up with for this month’s Centsational Challenge – the competition will be fierce in Round 2!
