Dining Room Light Fixture Makeover {Stripping Down}

What do you do when you are on a tight budget but the light fixture (as-is) is just not cutting it? You start stripping it down… I’ve been looking for a good “before” picture of this light fixture; and I think this [picture above] is the best I’ve got (taken mid way through the Dining […]

Succulent Decor for the Holidays

HeadgeScapes provided the Succulents (artificial plants) seen in this post; however, all opinions and photos are my own. ********** HedgeScapes specializes in hedges that are extremely durable, fire-retardant, and 100% maintenance free.

Holly’s Dining Room Makeover: Dressing Up Curtains

I’ve been working on my dining room for awhile now and I’m finally getting down to the smaller details. Today I’ve finished up the curtains!
