Small Space transformation... The Landing



Hello, and happy Monday to you.
I hope my last posts on Fall Table Settings have been instrumental in helping you create a table that reflects your personal style.
This week I will be making the most of an unused space by transforming it from barren to booyah! Read on.... 
 
 
 
 
This is the landing and boy did it need something. As you can see the space is very tiny, but I wanted it to be more than just a walk way to get upstairs. Hmmmmm!
 
 
 
 
At first, I was unsure as to how I would use the space, so I decided to use it as....



 
 

 
A Sitting Area.



 
No need to go shopping, I just pulled together some items from around the house that weren't being used. The artwork was found at a thrift store, and believe it or not the figures are made of plaster.



 

The leopard bench, pillows and throw were all gifts.


 
 
 
 
 
The basket serves as storage for books and stationary and the candlesticks were bought at a yard sale several years ago. The animal print ornaments were purchased at Dillard's. (after Christmas sale)
 
 
 
 
 
So, what do you think? I LOVE IT!!!!!!!  A place to read, write, and daydream. Who knew?
Enjoy the pics!

    It's amazing how a few simple additions can turn a space you wouldn't look twice at into an area you can't pass without wanting to hang out for a minute or two!

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
