Thanksgiving table spread....

>> Friday, November 27, 2009

Hope ya'll had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday and are not too deep into food coma! We had so much food leftover at our house I will be eating Thanksgiving dinner for days.

The creative bug bit me this past week regarding our tablescape for Thanksgiving. I had a few ideas in mind....but once I put them on the table (literally) I started to add a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
I thought I would share a few pictures with you guys:


Happy Thanksgiving...

Sneak Peak...

>> Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I have been really excited to start working on our guest bedroom. It's a tiny room....and when I say tiny, I mean it. It's a struggle to fit a queen size bed and one dresser in the room. But I had to make it work.

I didn't have much of a budget for the guest bedroom, just $55 is all I spent. I had an old dresser that needed some TLC- a coat of primer, a coat of paint and then I sprayed the knobs with oil rubbed bronze spray paint. Purchased the lamp for a steal at TJ MAXX on clearance for $12 , got the mirror off of Craigslist for $10, purchased the navy duvet cover brand new off of E-bay for $26 (shipping included), used a white bedskirt from a previous bedding collection I had and only paid $4 for both pillows at Burlington Coat Factory. I just used some accessories that I had in my decor box for things on the dresser.

Still to do:
A few more pillows for the bed
Iron piece headboard painted and hung
Purchase a few yellow accessories to liven up the room
Paint a wooden chair I have for the guest bedroom so guests can sit and put shoes on or place their luggage on the chair.

But withought further adieu here is a few sneak peaks:

I am getting into DIY home decor- your options are limitless. You can choose any fabric, design, styles, etc.
A favorite blog of mine- does alot of DIY home decor. Go through her blog- it's awesome. She is really talented and crafty.

One of her projects inspired me and so this evening I spent all of 10 minutes completing the project.

All you need is a candle, some glue or Modge Podge and some fabric or ribbons (or whatever accessories you would like to add).
I started with this:

And ended up with this:

So simple and easy!
