Buffet Makeover

Buffet Makeover

We recently moved into a new home and even though I would love to be able buy new furniture for the whole place I just can’t afford doing that. I do have some great pieces of furniture like this buffet and it’s been fun to makeover the look of what I already have to fit into the farmhouse theme I’m going for.

Recently there was a challenge put out on a fun DIY group I’m a part of to use a new product called Diva of DIY Chalk Mix on a piece of our choice. Since I’m in the throws of decorating I jumped at the chance, plus I love trying out new products.

Each month we will create a new home decor piece from an item(s) we’ve found at a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. There is no budget or specific theme so we are free to let our creativity run wild!

Decorate Your Mantel

In my new home I have a large fireplace and mantel that I just love, but that’s where the TV is, too. I like that the TV and fireplace can both be the centerpiece of the room, but it’s hard to decorate a mantel around a TV. So, I’ve been checking around the web for some decorating options for this area.

Back To School Bucket List Idea

This would be fun for students to accomplish their goals this school year.

It’s been so fun to see all the back to school pictures I’ve been seeing on social media. Kids are so cute with their new clothes and backpacks. With a new school year comes new schedules and goals. I thought it would be fun to put together a Back To School Bucket List idea for the students in your life.

I bought the quart size paint cans at my local home improvement store for a few dollars. I think using an actual bucket or can will keep the bucket lists safe and creates a visual piece so the students will keep their goals in the forefront of their minds.

I’ve provided the following printables for your use, if you’d like to use them.
