Bedroom Refresh... Making Room For Guests

It's going to be very busy during the Holidays around these parts. We will be hosting guests and I really want to make them feel extra special. So I figured, now would be as good a time as any to refresh the guest bedroom. The biggest problem I have with this room is storage. There is nowhere for guest to unpack because the closet is jammed packed with stuff. And I currently don't have a dresser/chest in the room.


 
Today I am only going to show you a glimpse of the refresh. Don't the pillows look scrumptious and inviting?  FYI, above pic was for instant gratification purposes, because the rest of the room is a hot mess!
 
 
This is what the bed looked liked before I started the room "refresh".
 
 
Since storage was a major concern I emptied the closet of all it's content. Hopefully this will free up some much needed space for guests. A chest of drawers would solve the storage dilemma. So I am keeping my fingers crossed in hopes of finding one.
 
 
Yes I must confess this is actually a room in my home. Any who back to the refresh. To make this  room guest ready, hanging curtains and creating a sitting area is a must.  
 

sorry several fuzzy pics in this post.
Can you believe all the stuff that was on the bed and the floor came out of the closet?

 
The tea cart will be used to house all the things that guests need like towels, bath cloths, and toiletries. I also plan on changing out the lamp shade, because the one pictured is way too small.


I have a few tricks up my sleeve concerning this little bedside table. An unusual table cloth is on the radar, but I'm not telling just yet. The books and the potpourri will be removed and replaced with a clock and a decorative piece.

 
Our first guests will be arriving the week of Thanksgiving, so that gives me roughly two weeks to complete this room. I am up for the challenge!
Are you having guests for the Holidays?
 
Thanks for stopping by!

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
