Easy Faux Palm Tree

Hello and happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend. I had a wonderful week spending time with family and friends. I will share the events of my week in a later post.  
Today I have a quick and easy idea for a Palm Tree. Read on....



 
 
Do you remember my Fab Foyer makeover?  I really loved how it turned out but, I thought the area between the staircase and the door was missing something. I wanted to add some height and drama to the space, so I decided a Palm Tree would do the trick. But that was before I found out how much one cost. I wasn't about to pay $100 plus for an artificial tree, so here's what I did......


 
 
I purchased 3 Tiki Torches ($1.99 each) and 2 Sago Palm bushes ($7.99 each) and made my own tree. 


 
 
First, I removed the wicks from the torches and inserted the stems of the Sago Palm bushes; where the wicks used to be.   
 
 
 
 
Next, I filled the pot with newspaper and shipping popcorn and added the torches one by one. I played around with the arrangement until I achieved the look I wanted. Lastly, I added some moss to hide the contents.  (the mouth of the pot will determine how many torches you will need.)
 
 

 
So here it is, I LOVE IT!!!!!!  What do you think? The cost for the Palm Tree about $25.  ( the cost  will be higher if you don't already have a pot.)  Thanks for stopping by!

 
2 your home,

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
