Favorite Month of the Year

It's April!!

April is my favorite month of the year!! It's my wedding anniversary, Easter, my birthday and the time everything begins to become green and beautiful again. 

Spring time is so lovely with it's sweet blooms and a green color in the foliage that seems almost electric. I feel the need to be outside as much as possible to enjoy the cool breezes before it turns to the Texas hot summer. 

In honor of my favorite month I wanted to share some spring and Easter decor I added to the casa.

I use these cute little chicks every year they were a gift from a sweet friend and they make me so happy.

I switched to my mothers china sugar bowl and creamer, I love the rose bud on top.

Lavender ball


Spring scent lemon mint

Fresh white linens and summer pillows

And put some blooms out

Spring, we joyfully welcome you!!

Deck the Halls Part 1

Happy December!!

There are few things that give me more joy than making our home cozy and special for Christmas! So here are a few shots of the progress.

Our master... I found some cozy, festive, flannel sheets love love them! 

My favorite thing to add is the small details.

The sheets are great mixed with the fur pillow and throw it a winter cabin feel.

My grandmothers village.

My red bird.

My little stocking.

A little note for my love on his side of the bed.

It's cozy and festive ❤️😍

The guest bedroom.

He's so cute.

I like to have something that lights up in each room gives each room some magic twinkle.

The office.

Each door gets a small wreath.

The only thing we have left to do is the tree. I will post more of the other rooms decor later this week. Have a great week!

Sorry for the grainy pictures it was dark.

Dresser Make Over $60

I have been wanting a dresser to use as an entertainment center for awhile now. That side of the living room as always seemed a little bare to me. Since we spend a lot of time looking in that direction I wanted to warm it up a little.

My idea dresser would be a French Providential with curvy lines but I am on a tight budget and those have been hard for me to find. I kept my eyes open and ran across this one at a garage sale.

I paid $45 dollars for it. It does have all the handles I had just removed this one already. It isn't exactly what I wanted but it's well made and I think I can make her work. 

This is my entertainment area now.

I have to say its my least favorite area in my living room. Sorry for the bad lighting, it was cloudy all weekend and hard for me to get some good natural light to take pictures with.

I got started...

Painting I chose to make her two tone, a light beige in the outside with a lighter white drawer facing. I usually use Behr paint with primer when I do furniture but this time I used Olympic I have to say I don't like it as gave me a little trouble.

I also wanted fancy hardware to totally change the look but couldn't find anything to fit so I decided to add a little detail and paint the ones I had.

I went with gold.

I added this stencil under the handle to give it a little more interest.

And here she is

Can you see the two colors? 

It's hard to see in pictures.

And here is where I put her.

I like it much better. I also can conceal the wires and movies very nicely to keep a nice clean look. 

I have an idea for how I want to decorate the wall above I will show you soon!!

Here's another before and after:

What do you think? All together supplies and everything I came in under $65 so I am happy!

Hope you have a good week!
