It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...


But, if you are a maker it is time for the craft room/workshop to start looking like that BIG holiday that believe it or not, is around the corner.  

Starting on Monday I will begin my 6th year of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" project posts (that means I have shared 60 ideas in the past).

I thought I would ease you into it with a few favorites from years past.

Teen Attic Bedroom + an Easy Vanity

Oh, to be a teenager again. My daughter's attic bedroom is such a fun space to decorate and work on.  She loves working on projects on it and has some really great ideas. 

I haven't shown you any updates since mid summer because after working on my daughter's flooring and painting and headboard, we decided we needed to work on outdoor projects while the sun was shining and save the indoor projects for the winter.

Here is the before of my daughter's sitting area and vanity space.

Here is the after, at least one side of it.

Gallery Wall with AWESOME Light Sconces

Do you like to put puzzles together?  

I enjoy them, but honestly haven't assembled one for years.  But, after collecting a pile of things for a gallery wall in my new home, I decided "puzzle putting together" skills were a plus. 

Let me remind you what the wall did look like--it had some modern style wall sconces and a headdress art piece on it that was left with the house:

Personalizing Your Home on a Budget.

In my book (SEE AND BUY HERE!) in the introduction I talk about my love for decorating on a budget and how I decorated on a budget out of necessity in the beginning, but how I stayed with it because I love finding and creating things that are unique and personal.

I love being able to change up my decor without feeling like I have invested too much in a piece to put it away in a box when I get tired of it.  No guilt decorating!!

Coffee Station

What's my favorite station?  

Why it is the coffee station of course where such hits as Love me Mocha, Love me Sweet and All You Need is Latte are played.

Before we moved into our old schoolhouse, I had envisioned a cute vintage metal cart in the kitchen for a coffee station.

But, the space I wanted one wasn't going to work.

I do, however, have plenty of counter space, enough for a small coffee area so I created one. And the best part--I used things I had on hand at home.

Small Town Thrifting

Today is one of those days--the good kind.

It is amazingly gorgeous out--mid 70's, slight breeze, crystal blue sky.  

I decided it was a great day for a small adventure so I hopped in the truck and headed down the interstate to a nearby small town to do some thrifting.

Sadly, many of the thrift stores and junk shops and cute boutiques are gone since the last time I was there. 

I did have a delightful lunch and took a few pictures around town.

Round Basket Mirror

Hello, my name is Becky and I have a SLIGHT obsession with round mirrors.  I may or may not own close to a dozen of them.  

And, I have decided it is my duty to share this love of the round reflective surface with others.

Dresser Redo with Fusion Mineral Paint, Show, Book Giveaway

Y'all (no, I am not from the south, but I love a good y'all over you guys) i have not been taking pictures of projects to share with you.  

And last week was no different.  I was madly preppin' for a show.  Rather than hauling pieces in from the garage and the workshop, I was going to take detailed photos when everything was staged at the show. 

After hours of unloading and pricing, staging and adjusting, I grabbed my camera only to discover the battery was dead. I had even checked to make sure it had a SD care in it before I left. Darn it.

I did snap a few photos with my phone before the crowd arrived.  One of my favorite projects was this dresser redo.
