Last week I showed you how I upcycled my Christmas tree ornaments. Because you know I am frugal like that. Today I am going to show you how to repurpose your decor for a unique Christmas look, just like I have done with my living room.
The big elephant in my living room is the wall unit that takes up the whole wall in one end of the room. It is big and tall and has lots of room for decorating. And I always try to please it by filling it up! The smartest thing I ever did was to flip all of my books around and so now I have a neutral canvas to add all the decorations I want.
We are officially into Christmas season! And that means I get to share my decorating with you. Let's start things off with my upcycled Christmas picture frames with wreaths the lazy way.
Today I'm going to show you just how sneaky I can be. I had this lovely set of Ikea picture frames over the sofa. For the past year they had housed Georgia O' Keefe, but when I had the Halloween party I wanted to add something frightful in them and so I opened them up and that is when this happened. I broke the glass in one of them.
The Halloween party is just a week away and I've been working feverishly on my wall unit making sure everything is just right. Oh, I know I had mentioned in my video the other day that I would add reds, but in fact I seem to have stuck to neutrals mostly. Let's take a quick tour and see my Halloween Wall Unit Decor.
I am including a small video towards the end of the post showing all of this and explaining it in more detail.
It's September and that means it's my turn to contribute a gift to the Handmade Christmas Gift blog hop. For those of you who are new here, I have gotten together with some blogger friends and we are making one gift per month (or at least we are trying). In this way, we will have 12 handmade gifts by the time December rolls around. In previous months I have made a pillow and a wooden heart.
As I mentioned, this month I get to make a gift and my blogger friends, and of course you all, are invited to copy it or make a variation.
What am I making? Well, because I've been working so hard all year I am going to make a gift for myself. After all a happy blogger is a productive blogger! I'm making a jewelry organizer for earrings.
I recently finished my fireplace makeover and it turned out much better than I expected. But as you may know, one project brings about another. Case in point that ugly frame next to my bee-you-tee-full fireplace. But this is a story about a girl...and a surprise.
Πρόσφατα τελείωσα την ανακαίνιση του τζακιού μου και αποδείχθηκε πολύ καλύτερο απ 'ότι περίμενα. Αλλά, όπως ίσως γνωρίζετε, ένα έργο φέρνει άλλο. Παραδείγματος χάριν η άσχημη κορνίζα δίπλα στο ομορφότατο μου τζάκι. Αλλά αυτή είναι μια ιστορία για ένα κορίτσι ... και μια έκπληξη
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
