We are two days in to the holiday and I've enjoyed the slow mornings so much already! The children maybe not so much, I had them help me do a marathon house cleaning yesterday and then last night my little guy came down with a fever :(
I have a few projects to show you, one being this buffet that I painted.
I can't seem to find the before picture but you can imagine, dark, speckled brown finish with lots of dings.
I put my hot chocolate tray on it. This is always a favorite in cold weather!
We are gifted every year with a large poinsettia and this year I decided to stop fighting the red and just go with it. I'm really liking the pops of red for now even though it's not something I want to live with long term.
I found this toast holder? at Goodwill. I like to put old photos or cards in it.
I had fun making this Anthropologie knock-off wreath with my daughter's help. I like it, though it does sort of look like shaggy carpet. :)
I copied this fireplace scene from Pinterest. I can't seem to link to it. Every winter I wish for a real wood fire, this is my make-believe one!
I am re-upholstering my yellow chair. I love the pop of yellow sunshine it brings and will miss that but it was getting too shabby with a hole in the cushion and some stains.
Our local U-fab store just moved a bunch of their velvets downstairs to the discounted section and I was excited to find a lovely brown velvet for $10 a yard! (They have some really nice browns, grays and beiges for those of you who are local.)
This will be interesting as I've never worked with velvet or a channel back chair before.
The children had fun constructing these reindeer cookies - what would we do without Pinterest inspiration?
See you later...
