Happy Saturday! The weekend is here and I don’t know what your plans are for today, but mine so far have involved cleaning. I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but Colin and I live with his parents. So, while I am mainly responsible for our space, once I start I just keep going! I don’t really mind cleaning. I use to hate it when I was younger. However, it has grown on me.I have started a new DIY project. I am making over my makeup drawers. I am hoping to finish at least the drawers and then access if I need more paint. I am going to post a before picture below:
A few years ago I covered the handles with zebra print duct tape. At the time it seemed like a good idea and I loved it. Now that I have been looking at it, I was feeling like it needed paint. I started with one drawer, and in all honesty: I am kind of just coming up with the general idea of what I want to do as I go. I painted the first drawer and so far I am loving the colors I chose! Here is a picture of the drawer I painted:
I am planning on doing a more in depth post on how I am going about this project. As well as a full picture of the finished project.
Yesterday I went to the Painted Mill for their vintage tag sale. I love shopping local and I love antiques. I found a great afghan for $10! I fell in love! It is prefect for not only fall but Christmas as well.
It is so gorgeous!! It just the perfect addition to our room!
While I was visiting West Virginia, I picked up this cute little sign for $6 at the flea market down there.
It was my first fall décor item that I put up. I have been slowly starting to take advantage of the Christmas decorations, so that after Thanksgiving I can start decorating for Christmas. I started getting my holiday scents from Bath and Body Works and sadly my fall scents are starting to dwindle down to the point you can’t light them anymore. I have been waiting for the 2 for 22 sale to come back so I can get a couple more holiday scents. I have been using the left over wax to make wax cubes for my wax warmer. That way I am not throwing away any perfectly good wax! I did snag this one to last me till after Thanksgiving 😉
While on the topic of home décor, let me share this amazing find I found about a month ago at HomeGoods!
I have been finding quotes and I love displaying my favorites on this pretty chalk board. I think I spent $14/$16 for it. I have been looking for something like this, and I have used it for one women’s event at church already, you can see how I used it here. I wrote “Welcome” and it just added a sweet southern touch.
