Fab Foyer Part 2


Hi all,
 I hope you had a rootin tootin holiday. I sure did. As promised here is part 2 of my fab foyer. Lot's of pics this time.



Can you spot the elephant in the room? It's the big cedar wall and Hubby love's it, me not so much. So here's what I did to get the best of both worlds.
 

I found two Broyhill chest at a thrift store for $10 each. You can't beat that with a stick! I primed,painted and bought new drawer pulls.

 
 I used river rock paint for the outside of the chest and a buttery yellow for the trim and inside. 
















 
 These shots give a before and after view from the front entrance.  
  
 
 Curtains were hung to break up the massive wall, they also
 added a layer of softness to the space. 
The addition of lamps, baskets, and mirrors rounded out the vignettes.
 
 
The overnight suitcases were purchased at a garage sale for $2 each. Initially they were blue, but I painted them in
a mustard color and added black to give them
 a distressed look. Lastly, the exotic florals were
added to the suitcases.
 
   
Check out the before picture at the top, big difference huh? This transformation was not hard @ all, I just did the same thing twice. Total cost for the entire makeover about $200. Thanks for stopping by.
 
2 your home,
Lory

 I love hearing from you. Contact me @ adtale@yahoo.com

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
