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.
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.
Hello Friends! I just moved into a new home and am working on getting it put together and decorated. While I’m putting furniture and accessories into place I always try to keep accent lighting in mind. Even in a well lit room with good windows there can be corners and areas that always seem dark or could use a little lamp light to add some warmth. Here are a few examples of where I put accent lighting in my home.
I’ve paired up with a group of talented ladies to bring you a monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge. 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!
