at home for the holidays
hi guys! what’s happening? it’s been a busy week so i apologize for always being behind schedule here. i was supposed to announce the giveaway winners days ago so first things first!…they’re elissa from the traveling pear and jasmine from jasmine kyle sings.. hope you enjoy the books, girls!
it’s been a long hard day and what better way to wind down then to look thru pinterest? i guess it’s a little obsession (am i the only one)? if there’s a minute to spare you know it will stir up something fun. today it got me thinking about decorating and the holidays. so many of us need just a quick fix to wake up a room and it doesn’t have to take much. so from a (shhh) lazy decorator, here are some of simple diy’s to freshen things up in an afternoon.
it’s easy to get trim and put it along the edge of a curtain. if you have 9 ft windows you’ll need about 7 yards. you can even use iron on tape to hold it.
color coding books and straightening out shelves is about as basic as it gets. and gratifying too!
there are old tiles at markets and salvage places. or just tape and paint the diagonal stripes.
go a little monochromatic
paint a wall
skirt a sink with double stick velcro and pins if you can’t sew
paint a frame around the shower or lines along the base of the room. all you need is tape and black paint.
minimize and use your best
put your stamp on it
tiered serving dishes are in every thrift store. so are the cups and saucers.
upcycle baby bottles
glue and sprinkle sequins to your shower curtain!
and outside…solar lights
or votives from the dollar store
set a pretty table
or add glitter to the shoes your were so over!
most of all keep it simple. this is supposed to be a time of joy so enjoy and spread it! i’ll try too! bonne nuit mes cheres amis!
