Today I have a special announcement to make. I have been chosen to be one of the Brand Bloggers for the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company or OFMP.
When my husband visited the boys last year he went on a walk and came home with all sorts of goodies - actually the neighbors were moving. The mirror below was one of them. He told me "when you go to New York make sure to go to the basement and see what I have for you."
How lucky can a girl get? And so today I'll show you a mirror makeover with Old Fashioned Milk Paint.
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.
Last spring... yes. I did just say that? I was looking over my friend Carol's blog, The Red Painted Cottage and she had a very fun post where she visited Magnolia Market. The one owned by Joanna and Chip Gaines, the hosts of The Fixer Upper.
As I was looking through her lovely tour my eye spotted something near the window. It was a decoration made from egg cartons.
Well you know the hoarder in me just jumped for joy! Finally I had found something useless to repurpose! And so began my adventure to collect as many egg cartons as I could in order to make this project which you are about to see. Today I am going to show you how make easy fall flowers using egg cartons.
If you follow me at all, you have seen my attempts with Paper Rolls made into hearts and other strange things.
It's Back to School time for some of us, and for some others, well it's next month but that doesn't mean we can relax. No, we still need to get the kids rooms in order and to organize their things. With this in mind, I have teamed up with my blogger friends and come up with some fun ideas to help you all get ready for back to school. Today I will show you how to make a back to school hanging organizer.
Το σχολικό έτος αρχίζει για κάποιους από μας τώρα, και για άλλους τον Σεπτέμβρη, αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι μπορούμε να χαλαρώσουμε. Όχι, χρειάζεται να βάλουμε τάξη στα δωμάτια των παιδιών. Με αυτή τη σκέψη, έχω συνεργαστεί με φίλες μπλογκερ να σας δείξουμε μερικές διασκεδαστικές ιδέες για να βοηθήσουν να ετοιμαστείτε για το σχολείο. Η συνεισφορά μου είναι πώς να φτιάξετε έναν κρεμαστό διοργανωτή.
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.
