Guest Room Reveal

Hi all, today I am back with the guest bedroom reveal. I added the finishing touches to the room on Tuesday, and the first guests arrived on Wednesday.

In a previous post there were a few things that I mentioned I wanted to accomplish in this space. One, I wanted to add a sitting area.




And two, I also needed to create a space for guests to unpack if they so desired. 
The initial plan was to find a chest of drawers but that didn't happen, so I did the closet shuffle. You know, take the stuff out of this closet and put it in another closet.

 
I managed to create a space in the closet. However, I forgot to open the door and take the picture so you could see it. lol!
 
  I added the burgundy and gold pillow and removed the bolster. You can see it here.  I think the burgundy brings in a touch of Christmas.

What can I say about the bedside table? It needed to be updated and fast.

So, I came up with a super cool idea for a table cloth. And I was lucky enough to find a woven basket that fit perfectly on top of the table. Can you believe the table cloth is actually a dress? Yep, you read that right. All I did was cut open the seam in the back of the dress, and then I draped it over the table. Pretty clever huh?
 
 
I think the table cloth makes quite a dramatic statement. Did I mention, I know DRAMA? 
 
 
The potpourri adds a splash of color, while the gold dish adds a touch of sparkle/shine.
 
 
Mirror, mirror on the wall......
 
 
Mirrors were added to the tea cart to level out the uneven surface. 
 
 
And the accessories were kept at a minimum, this way guest can keep all their personal belongings in one place.
 
 
The ice bucket is the perfect place to store mini water bottles. Pop them in the fridge several hours before bedtime and guests will have a cool drink right at their finger tips, without having to leave their room.
 
 
One of the main issues that I had with this space was it didn't have a sitting area. So I brought in a chair from another room, a few pillows and a throw. Problem solved! 
 






 
 
This is how the bed/room looked before the make-over. Blah, blah, blah!

So what do you think? I love how this room turned out and my guests loved the room too!
Are you expecting any guest/guests for the Holidays?
 
Have a GREAT day!

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
