Fall is finally here, so I recently celebrated by decorating my living room's console table for fall. I wanted to be thrifty, so for the table I used items I already had on hand, or used finds I got at the dollar store or at Target's Dollar Spot.
I am a BIG magazine reader. The problem is that I don't know where to store them all! I recently put together an incredibly easy to make rolling magazine crate for my magazine stash. I keep the crate by the sofa or roll it to where I want it to be.I like the look of raw wood, so I kept my crate project incredibly simple -- I didn't even paint the crate. (But a crate could easily be spray painted for this project.) I simply just screwed on some caster wheels.
Do you have a window seat that you don't know how to decorate? Window seats can sometimes be hard to decorate. For the longest time, I didn't know how to improve the look of the window seat in my home's living room. The space looked rather drab and sad for quite some time.
I've had a vegetable garden for several years, with not much luck. I'm not the best at weeding (I don't weed enough), and critters (rabbits and groundhogs) are always always eating my vegetables! I decided to trade in my backyard garden plot for a raised planter instead, and couldn't be happier!
I love to add new decor and furnishings to my house. I often find ways to update my home with not much cash. One of my favorite projects is a sunny patio table that I created from an old coffee table that had once belonged to my parents.
To complement my new Mohawk Home area rug and my new sofa, I created colorful pillows for my living room. The pillows are actually stuffed double-sided cloth placemats, and cost me less than $10 total.
I love to add decor to my home's front door. I usually craft wreaths for my front door. But when I spotted an inexpensive hanging chalkboard in the dollar section of a favorite store, I decided to create a quick chalkboard art project for my home's front door instead.
I wanted to hang a Valentine's Day wreath on my home's front door. But I didn't want to run to the craft store for supplies or invest big bucks to purchase one. So, I repurposed some leftover ribbon, felt and mini wood rounds that I had from some Christmas crafts to create a brand-new wreath for Valentine's Day.
The kitchen is the center of my open floor plan home. So this year I wanted to make sure that I decorated the kitchen table! All I needed were just a few items to give the table a fun and festive look.
The holiday season can be so rushed and hectic. So for a Christmas wreath this year, I decided to go rustic and minimal and create a low-stress lace and ivy Bohemian Christmas wreath.
