What do you do when you have a room to transform on a minuscule budget? You Do It Yourself of course. But you also take into consideration the occupants of the room!
For the past two months I've been sharing various furniture makeover projects with you. And finally after all this sweat and toil, I am ready to show you the girls' mostly black and white bedroom in full.
I've included links to all the projects at the end of the post.
Since moving to our new/old home things have gotten very complicated. The rest of the family was already living here so instead of starting from scratch with a clean slate, I came into a house that had way too much already. My dad who also lives here had accumulated a LOT of stuff.
Most of it will have to go (read: garage sale in the spring) but some of it is useable. Point in case this lamp you see below. I found two of them and knew they'd be perfect for my daughters' room. Let's seen how I gave a new life to old lamps.
It's been a month since I've returned from my trip to New York where I visited my sons. I had a great time and even got to meet the family cat. But I also did a bit of housekeeping, reorganizing and refreshing some things. Today I'd like to share a different type of post with you. I'm taking you on a glimpse into my world and a few odds and ends that I worked on while there.
This is the living room. Of course those lovely burlap pillows were a gift to my older son but I did find time to display them first. The Peace pillow is a gift from my dear friend Nikki Frank Hamilton. You can visit her at the Make Lemonade Shop to check out her selection or you can custom order your pillows like I did.
Today I have a special post for you. I am participating in a Christmas Blog Hop along with lots of other very talented bloggers, which is hosted by Hometalk.com and CountryLiving.com. I am inviting you inside my home for an old fashioned Christmas.
Σήμερα έχουμε μια ιδιαίτερη ανάρτηση για εσάς! Συμμετέχω σε ένα Χριστουγεννιάτικο Blog Hop μαζί με άλλους ταλαντούχους μπλόγκερς, που οργάνωσε το Hometalk.com και CountryLiving.com. Σας προσκαλώ στο σπίτι μου για να γιορτάσουμε παλιομοδίτικα Χριστούγεννα.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. We here in the Land of Alice (that's Alice in Wonderland) went to vote for the third time this year. How is it possible for a country to function when the government keeps on changing so often? So that I don't go insane, I have my lovely little blog to keep me occupied, and you my wonderful readers who make it worth my while to come here and share with you.
As you know I have been working on my daughter's room in what feels like forever! And I am finally finished. The walls are painted, the accessories have been color coordinated, and every pillow is in place. And I am ready to give you a tour of the blue room. A quick before:
Ελπίζω όλοι να είχατε ένα υπέροχο Σαββατοκύριακο. Εμείς εδώ στο κρατίδιο της Αλίκης (αυτό είναι το Alice in Wonderland) πήγαμε να ψηφίσουμε για τρίτη φορά φέτος. Πώς είναι δυνατόν μια χώρα να λειτουργεί όταν η κυβέρνηση συνεχίζει να αλλάζει τόσο συχνά; Έτσι ώστε να μην τρελαθώ, έχω το υπέροχο μου μπλογ για να με κρατάει απασχολημένη, και τους υπέροχους αναγνώστες μου που μου δίνουν κουράγιο για να έρθω εδώ και να μοιραστώ μαζί σας.
Όπως γνωρίζετε έχω ασχοληθεί με το δωμάτιο της κόρης μου για καιρό τώρα. Επιτέλους τελείωσα. Οι τοίχοι είναι βαμμένοι, τα αξεσουάρ είναι σε αρμονικούς χρωματικούς συνδυασμούς, και κάθε μαξιλάρι είναι στη θέση του. Ένα γρήγορο πριν:
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
