The Reveal...How I Decorated My Christmas Tree/Foyer For Less Than $30

Today I am back to share the reveal of my Christmas Tree/Foyer. As I stated in my last post, this design was inspired by a promise I made to my grand baby. By the way, they came to visit last week and my oldest grand baby absolutely loved the tree/foyer. My plan was to video her expression but I dropped the ball, maybe next time.  If you recall my goal was to create a tree that my grand baby would love, but it had to be done on a shoestring budget. I think it's safe to say, I accomplished both. I was able to decorate the tree/foyer for less than $30. You heard me right!!! But I won't be sharing the final cost until the end of this post, so keep reading. OK, I've kept you waiting long enough. DRUM ROLL PLEASE! Here's the decorated Christmas Tree/Foyer.



Does this look like a space that was decorated for less than $30?  The only things I used to decorate this entire foyer for the most part, were Fairy Wings and tissue paper. 

This tree was super simple to create. I simply p…

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 parties…

Bathroom Vanity Reveal

Several weeks ago I shared the demolition and tiling of our upstairs bathroom. So today, I am back to reveal the vanity that we chose for the space. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wanted something super simple and no fuss.Plus, I wanted the vanity to be open concept.


So the Hubs drew up something to fit the bill. I also decided that I didn't want any shelves. Instead I would use decorative baskets to house all of our everyday items. So, with plans in tow we headed to our neighborhood home improvement store. There we picked out and purchased the items needed for the vanity.



The construction was super simple, and once the vanity was complete a couple coats of espresso stain was added to give the vanity a somewhat rustic patina.


Next a solid surface counter top as well as a drawer pull was added to complete the vanity.


I will do a post on the sources later.



This counter top was chosen for it's versatility, and I think it would pair well with most decor styles.  

Here's the fi…
