Holiday Decoration Traditions (with a little help from Wayfair)

Do you have any Holiday Decoration Traditions?  

Do you have any special traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation, or maybe some new ones you’ve started with your own family?

One of the holiday decorating traditions I remember as a kid was going as a family to pick out a real tree and then decorating it all together.  I’ve continued this tradition with my own family.  My husband, kids and I always go together to pick out a tree, then we go home, put on Christmas music and decorate it as a family.  It is a little different here in Florida then where I grew up in Massachusetts though.  We usually go in our shorts and t-shirts instead of all bundled up and freezing.  I much prefer the shorts and t-shirts route.

We had an artificial tree for a few years, which was passed down to us from my mother-in-law, but it was really dusty and old so after a few years of using it, we had to get rid of it.  Was it easier to put up and take down and less messy? Absolutely!  But for now, we really like having a real tree and the whole tradition of picking one out.  Yes the needles make a mess but we think it is worth it.  But, there are some amazing artificial trees out there and maybe we’ll invest in one some day.  If you’re looking to invest in one check these out from Wayfair!

New Christmas Decorating Traditions...

And now that we live in the House house in our current neighborhood, we decorate our house sort of Griswold style, and have started a few new traditions.  You see, our neighborhood is the most decorated in Naples.  People come from all over town to drive through here to see all the lights.  Each street has a theme (with the exception of our street which is the main street in the neighborhood).  By theme I mean that each mailbox has the same decoration.  Most of them are made of pvc pipes and they light up.  So when you drive down the street every mailbox is lit up the same and it looks amazing.  Each street is different.  For example, one street is Christmas Trees, one is Snowflakes, Angels, Candy Canes, etc., and one has blue arches that go across the entire street (see picture below).  I am not sure how or when this tradition started but it has been going on for many, many years.  When you buy a house here, it comes with the mailbox decor.  Although each street has a theme it is up to you to decorate your house however you choose, and many choose to light up their homes Griswold Style.  Most neighbors rent golf carts (for those that don't already own them) decorate them, and use them for the month to drive around to see all the lights.  Christmas Eve is especially crazy as it is other people's traditions to drive through here as a family to see the lights.  People decorate their cars, blast Christmas music, and everyone yells out "Merry Christmas" to anyone that can hear them.  Traffic gets really crazy so residents know that it is best to try to be home early, if possible.  Lots of people set up fire pits in their front yards and have parties.  It is SO MUCH FUN.

Christmas Village...

Another one of our traditions that we follow every year is setting up our Christmas village that has also been passed down from my mother-in-law.  She has hundreds of these villages and used to spend hours and hours setting them all up.  Now that both of her son's have families of their own, she has passed most of them down to us.  My kids love setting them up each year and they look so pretty all light up. (I searched thru years of my pictures to find a good photo of our village and don't have ONE.  Not one.  So this picture is not of our village, I got it from the internet, but you get the idea. I vow this year to get some good photos!)

Stringing up the Lights...

Last year was our first Christmas in this house so we had to spend lots of money buying lights and decor.  Most neighbors set up all their lights the weekend of Thanksgiving, but we were in Massachusetts this year for Thanksgiving so are busy putting them up this week.  We feel a little behind and a little bit of pressure to get them up ASAP but what we have up so far looks awesome.

Anyway, here are some great and unique lighting idea's from Wayfair at great prices.

DIY Christmas Decorations...

And here are a few Easy DIY Decor Christmas projects. Last year I made these Christmas Balls which are going up again in our front tree this week, and these fun DIY Christmas Wine Bottles (which are my most pinned item) and a few years ago I made these popsicle stick Christmas Trees.  I have a few things I'm planning to make this year too so stay tuned for that.

DIY Artwork for $23

I posted this image of my DIY Artwork on social media last night, and had a nice response. Thank you all so much for the kind words.  Since you all seemed to like it, I thought I’d share how I made this DIY Artwork.

Simply put, I followed this tutorial that I found on Pinterest from some one who is much more artistic than myself.  I loved the colors in this piece and thought they’d look perfect in my house, so was dying to try it.  However, I was nervous as I have NEVER tried to paint anything like this, so I thought for sure I’d mess it up.  Sometimes I try things that I see on Pinterest and they are HUGE fails, but this one was actually really easy and I was very happy with the result.  And it only cost me $23!

Here are the supplies I used…

1. I bought a 2 pack of 18×24 inch canvas’ at Hobby Lobby on sale for $12.99.  I was afraid to go any bigger in case I screwed them up, but now I wished I had bought the 24×36 (although that size cost a lot more money and they weren’t on sale).

2. Craft paint.  I purchased the following colors (but there are hundreds to choose from, so you could pick whatever colors float your boat, I think a bunch of oranges, reds, and yellows would be pretty too).  I didn’t want to screw this up so I basically bought the exact colors based on the suggestions from this blog.  Each of these cost $1.37 (one brand was $1.87)!  This is not high quality paint, but it worked just fine for my purposes, and the price was right.

Folk Art brand #2499 Skyline and #407 Kelly Green,

Ceramcoat brand #04021 Seafoam

Americana brand – #DA02 White Wash and #DA042 Baby Blue

3. I used one of my kids paint brushes (1/2 inch size) but wished I had bought a nicer, newer one. The one I used was a little beat up, but it did the trick

4. Paper plate.

The Painting Process (the Fun part)…

Once I was all set up, I just went for it.  I started on the bottom with the Kelly Green, then worked my way up trying to blend the colors the best I could using a lot of white.  The good news is you really can’t mess it up.  If you don’t like the way something turns out, just paint over it.  Here was my first one, in progress.

Originally, I was only going to paint one of my two canvas’, but it only took me about a half an hour to complete the first one, so I decided to paint the other one too.  When I thought I was done and happy with how they both looked, I took a picture of them and walked away for a bit.  When I came back a while later, I thought there was way to much green on the bottom so I got to work blending the colors until I was happy.  You really could go overboard and just keep painting and painting all day long, but by now my kids were home from school so I called them DONE.  Even now, looking at these pictures, I see some areas I would like to fix, but I think I’ll leave them alone…..for now.

Side note – I feel like the colors in real life are much prettier than these pictures below.

My husband and kids were both surprised that I painted these and although they are not the best things you’ve ever seen in your life, I really like how they came out.

Here is where I hung them in the living room, for now.  There were already nails here from other pictures, so I hung them here just to see how they looked.  I’m thinking they need some frames.  What do you think?

So, there ya have it!   

Trust me, if I can do something like this, so can you.

Console Table Redo…

Are you guys getting sick of all my DIY painted furniture projects?  I hope not cause here is another one.  I would like to present my console table redo. 😉

Changing up this old table…

This console table is pretty old.  It used to have a TV on top of it for years, until we moved into the House house and started using it as an actual console table.  Except, it didn’t match anything once I painted all our other old dark wood furniture.  So, guess what I did?  Yup, I painted it.  But I added a map to the top to make it a little different.  Here is how I did my console table redo.

Step 1, the map…

I’ve been wanting to add a map to a piece of furniture after seeing a few projects on Pinterest that I liked, and thought what better place than my console table redo.  I started searching for one and was having trouble finding a map that fit.  This table is 42″ long and they don’t really make maps that big, at least none that I could find.  I did however find this stuff called a ‘project roll’ at Joann’s (see pic below).  It is almost like wrapping paper, except a little thicker. Bonus, it was on sale for $2.99! It still wasn’t long enough though so I had to cut it to size.  I mean, it was plenty long, as you can see below, only the map kept repeating itself and everytime it repeated there was a border. After brainstorming a bit, I decided to cut off the top and bottom border and then the middle border too. I had to overlap where I cut off the border, by matching up the exact location on the map.  Sounds complicated but it wasn’t.

It looked like this, see below.  You can see that the continents repeat but you can’t really see where I cut the border off and glued it back together.  I wanted North America to be in the middle, but as you can see there are 2 Asia’s, Europe’s, Africa’s, etc., one on either side.

First I used an exacto knife to cut it down, then I used the actual console table as a template and some scissors to make sure it fit perfectly.

Step Two, Painting…

Since I still had some leftover, I used this same blue that I used to paint this bar area shown below, and these bar stools.  It is also the same color as our dining room.

 

I brought the table outside to my “workshop”, aka the covered lanai, and started painting it.  I gave the top one coat and the rest three.  I wanted the top to be blue underneath the map since I cut the map so there is a slight border, maybe 1/8″ all the way around.

Step 3, Adding the Map…

To add the map to the table, I used Mod Podge to glue it in place.  I started at one end and slowly kept appling glue to the table top and then slowly sticking the map to the table.  Once it was all glued I tried to smooth out any bubbles.

Once dry, I applied 2 more coats of Mod Podge on top of the map to seal it, then 3 coats of Sealer. I used Minwax, Water Based Polycrylic Clear Finish.  I have to admit that all the bubbles on the top were freaking me out!  I kept smoothing them down with a rolling pin and my fingers, and the edge of a spatula, but some of them were stubborn.  I even popped a few with a pin.  I kept thinking, OMG what did I do, this looks terrible.  Anyway, after it sat and dried overnight all the bubbles magically disappeared! Whew!!!

And,that is pretty much it!  Overall, I really like how it came out.  Using left over paint and other materials in our garage, it only took me a couple of hours and a couple of dollars to do!  The only thing I had to buy was the map, and that only cost $2.99!

Here are some more before/after shots.  I styled it using the same stuff as before; a collection of shells, white vases and a shadow box that my bridesmaids made me the year I got married of all our wedding memorabilia.

What do you guys think?  Do you have any projects to share with me?

Playhouse Makeover

Check out what our neighbors did with another neighbors old playhouse they were giving away.

Y’all know I love a good makeover and upcycling story as I’ve done of lot of makoever-ing and upcycling myself.  As much as I’d love to be able to throw away all my old furniture and get all new stuff, it isn’t happening at the House house, at least not right now.  So since we’ve moved in here I’ve painted and/or updated a lot of our old stuff.  Like my dining room table, these old bar stools, some left over wood pallets, and even these wine corks just to name a few.  Anyway, I thought I’d show you how my neighbors made over this old playhouse.   Yay for makoevers!

Before…

Here is the before picture of the playhouse.  Our neighbor’s 2 girls had outgrown it so they passed it off to our neighbors across the street who’s little girl just turned 2.  It is the perfect size for her.  It was cute before, but definitely had seen better days.  The stain was fading from the sides and the blue trim was looking a little dull.

What they did…

This wasn’t a difficult project, just time consuming.

After they got it home (they live just 2 houses away from each other) they (mostly Bob, the dad) started working on it.

First, he sanded the sides and roof using a hand sander.  This took some time.  These projects are never ‘quick’, especially when you work full time and have 2 kids at home.

Once that was finished, he re-stained the sides and roof to freshen it up. He used a different color stain for both.

Lastly, he painted the trim and door purple (their daughters favorite color) and the accents pink.  He also got creative with the door and used a piece of wainscoting to fill in the bottom half.

Overall this was not to difficult and look how stinkin’ cute it came out!

I think it’s safe to say their daughter loves it.  Look how happy she is in it! And guess what, my boys like it too (and they are 8 and 10), and this little one’s brother (who is 9) and all the neighborhood kids.  They’ve been over there playing in it, even though some of them barely fit.

See what you can do with a little elbow grease and some creativity? And it saved them lots of money not having to buy a new house. These playhouses are not cheap!  Good job neighbors!

Featuring a Friends Amazing Kitchen Makeover

Kitchen Makeover….

My friend (Jamie) redesigned her kitchen and it is so gorgeous I just had to share it with y’all.  Jamie and her family live in my neighborhood and bought their house several years ago.  As I’ve mentioned before, most of the homes in this neighborhood were built in the 80’s and many have not been updated ever, or for a very long time.  Jamie is in the design business and has amazing taste and style.  She and her handy husband did a lot of the work themselves, and were able to complete their kitchen makeover without the huge price tag.

If you missed the post about my own kitchen reveal you can find it here.

The Before…

First, let’s take a look at the kitchen before pictures. She didn’t have a whole lot of them to share, but you get the idea.  Here was the kitchen when they bought the house.  Nice, but a little outdated, dark and just sort of blah.

The After… 

Pretty different, wouldn’t you say?

The Details…

They replaced all the cabinets and installed a classic subway tile backsplash.  The gorgeous countertop is a honed Calcutta Apuano marble with 3 waterfall edges.  The cabinetry hardware is from School House Electric, the pendant lighting is Kitchler, and the sconce above the sink is Hudson Valley lighting.  They put up custom shiplap from sheets of plywood that they ripped to size, painted, and installed. They handmade the gorgeous barn doors from Brazilian wood that were former car pallets.  So cool.  (I really wish we had installed some barn doors somewhere in the House house, but I digress.)

They installed French doors, where there used to be a window, that leads out to the back yard.  The beautiful and cozy banquette was also custom made by Jamie’s husband. The art above the banquette is a DIY that features a beautiful indigo textile covered by acrylic sheets.  The lantern above the dining table is from Visual Comfort.

Pretty nice job they did, huh?  I just love their style!  What do you guys think?

Jamie and family are moving away, unfortunately.  But, they were able to sell this house (not surprisingly) very quickly.  Who wouldn’t want to cook in this kitchen?

Refinishing Bar Stools to Look New Again

A weekend DIY project…

I posted these refinished bar stools on social media and people seemed to like them, so I thought I’d put together a short tutorial on how I refinished them.

We inherited these hunter green bars stools from a house we bought and then later sold.  The previously home owners had left them.  I’ve wanted to refinish them ever since, and I finally did it! Here is how….

Refinished Bar Stools, Before

Dealing with the legs…

First, we took the tops off.  These are the kind of stools that spin around.  The hardware needed some WD40 anyway since some of them didn’t spin so great anymore. My husband took care of that while I did the rest.

I started by lightly sanding the stools legs.  I just wanted to scuff them up a bit so the paint would have something to stick to.

Then, I spray painted the legs using this Valspar paint with a built in primer.  I used one whole can per chair, and even bought an extra can, just in case, and used that whole can too doing touch ups. I flipped them upside down, sprayed, waited for them to dry, and then flipped them right side up and did the same, to make sure I didn’t miss any spots.

Dealing with the Tops…

I sanded the tops thinking that I’d try to stain them the same color as the top of this refinished table I did a while ago.  However, they looked terrible!  They just weren’t taking the stain the same way the table did.  We have a lot of left over paint in the garage, so I took a look and decided to use the wall color from our dining room instead of the stain.  And yes, that looked much better!  You can see in the picture below the one top I hadn’t yet painted.  Looked terrible, right? That was with at least 2 coats of stain. Maybe if I keep adding layers of stain it would have looked better?  I dunno. I didn’t think so.

After I painted all of them I was thinking, hmmmm, it needs something more. They seemed a little boring.  So off to Hobby Lobby I went looking for a stencil.  I originally was looking for a shell, preferably a starfish, but they didn’t have one.  Then I found this anchor and thought, bingo.

Back to our garage I went to figure out what color to use for the stencil.  I was going to use white but decided to use TopSail, which is the color in our living room, and such a pale blue that it looks almost white.  After they dried there were a few spots that needed to be touched up, which I did using a small paintbrush.  Easy peasy and they don’t look half bad!

Last but not least…

I added a few coats of polyurethane to prevent any chipping.  I was told to use water based, instead of oil based, to prevent yellowing.  We’ll see how it holds up.

I really like how they came out and they will be perfect for extra seating when we are entertaining. Also, the kids like to sit in these stools in front of the aquarium and check out the fish.

I’ve got a table to tackle next.  Stay tuned for that.  I hope you found this helpful.

DIY Wine Cork Project…

What to do with all your saved wine corks…

First off, I can’t believe its been over 3 weeks since I’ve posted anything.  First my son’s birthday, then Christmas, then New Year’s, then I lost a friend to breast cancer and had a hard week getting thru that. Anyway, I am back and ready to share this little project with you.  Hope you enjoy.

Are you a wine drinker like me?  Do you save all your corks like me too?  Then they sit there in a vase or jar or something forever and you think, what the hell am I gonna do with all these, but you can’t seem to throw them all away?  Sound familiar?  Well, I finally decided to do something with all of mine and make this DIY wine cork sign.  And it was super easy!

DIY wine cork project…

I wanted to write out either the word “cheers” or “BAR” to hang above our bar area. I headed to Hobby Lobby to see what they had for wooden letters and decided on these.  These letters are about 10 inches high, are very thin, and cost less than 2 dollars each.  They also had some cursive letters that I liked, but they were not as tall as these, and I wanted them pretty tall. I am sure most craft stores carry similar wooden letters, in case you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you.

DIY Bar Sign using wine corks

First, I sorted my corks and arranged them on the ‘B’ before gluing them down.  After messing around with different patterns, I decided to go from light on the top to dark on the bottom.  Second, I glued them down with my fabulous glue gun.  That is pretty much all there is to it!  I told ya it was easy.

I must admit that about half way thru the ‘A’, I’d used up all my corks, and then had to ask friends if I could have theirs.  This B alone has around 70 corks!!!  That is a whole lotta wine.  Luckily I know a few big wine drinkers who were willing to donate their stash to me so I could finish. 😉

One last thing.  These letters did not come with anything on the back for hanging, so my husband nailed some small sawtooth hangers on so we could hang them up.

Easy Peasy!  AND, here is the final product…

A few more pictures…

I found the ‘House Winery’ sign on Amazon.  It is an old wine barrel top, customized with our last name and est. date.  (We put 2016 since that is the year we moved into the House house.)

It hangs above the bar that I refinished a while back, using the same technique as my dining table. Looks much better in our space.

Hope you enjoyed this simple and extremely easy little project.

Have you ever done anything with all your wine corks?  I’d love to see.

DIY Christmas Balls (and last days to enter my giveaway)

balls…

hehehe, it’s just one of those words that makes you laugh.  Like the Schweddy balls skit on Saturday Night Live. If you have never seen it, do yourself a favor and watch it.  It’s hilarious!  So when I made these giant DIY Christmas balls for the huge tree in our front yard (and had a total Pinterest fail) there were a lot of jokes and laughs had by all.

DIY Giant Christmas Balls
Giant Christmas Balls

Here is how it went down.  I saw these DIY Christmas balls made from beach balls on Pinterest and thought they looked easy to make (and they were, thanks to the tutorial).  But first I had to go to 1 Target and 2 different Walmarts (not my favorite place) to find the damn beach balls.  I live in FLORIDA people.  You’d think every Walmart and Target in this area would have beach balls year round.  But, nope!  The 2nd Walmart I visited was the charm.  I bought 4 balls.  Then I had to find some medium sized food containers to use for the tops.  I had some in the fridge so I emptied them into tupperwear and cleaned them out. I had wire coat hangers in the closet to use for the hooks.  For the other materials, I went to Home Depot and bought the silicone glue that the tutorial said to use, and this awesome metallic spray paint that I’ve been spraying every empty wine bottle I come across (or maybe drank).

So, I bent the coat hangers into a U-shape and stuck them into the sides of the food containers, then spray painted them.  Next, I glued the food containers to the tops of my balls using the silicone glue (waited for the glue to dry overnight) then my husband helped me hang them in the tree.  My friends and neighbors stood back and admired my lovely balls!  My balls were hanging quite nicely and looked on point.

Imagine my surprise when the next morning I went to admire my big balls only to discover one ball was floating around my yard, one was in the neighbor’s yard across the street, and one was next door!  My poor nicely hung balls!  The silicone glue obviously did not hold.  I had to run around and collect my broken balls in my jammies, bed head and all before I even had a sip of coffee.

So, what went wrong?  One friend told me that “I needed to use proper ball adhesive and to make sure my balls were rubbed smooth before applying.”  Another said, maybe “I didn’t rub my balls hard enough before I glued them.”   Another said, “maybe my balls were too big and that there are videos on youtube on how to deal with big balls.”   “What can I say”, I replied to that comment, “I like big balls”.  I am sure you can think of a funny thing or two to add here too, right?  Yes I am in my 40’s and still find this funny.  I hope none of you are offended.  So juvenile I know.

So, my husband went and bought me another kind of glue  (Gorilla Glue) and that did the trick.  My balls have been hanging quite nicely in my tree for over a week.  Whew.

Aren’t my balls nice? What do you think?

DIY Easy Christmas Craft

DIY Wine Bottle Christmas Craft…

I posted this DIY wine bottle Christmas craft idea on social media and thought I’d write up a quick tutorial on how I did it, even though it is probably pretty self explanatory.  These only took me about 1/2 hour to make (not including waiting for the paint to dry).

By the way, if you like these tutorials, and my blog in general, please sign up for my email list.  Thank you!

Step One – Drink wine.  Lots of it, or at least three bottles. 🙂  Save those bottles (and corks too – for other projects).  Take off the labels using soap and water, Goo Gone, and whatever tools necessary. I have one of these mini razor blade scraper thingys and it rocks.  I use it all the time.  It is especially good on our flat, electric stove top and for getting sticky stuff off your floors, but also is great for getting wine labels off of bottles.

Step Two –  Spray paint them.  I used this Valspar Metallic Spray Paint and it is amazing.  But, you could use white for a more beachy look or red or any color you like. I bought this at Lowes but also saw it at Hobby Lobby. Wait for it to dry until moving onto the step three. This stuff dried pretty fast.

Step Three – Decorate.  I went to Hobby Lobby and found the red string and the Christmas holly.  I know that store is not for everyone, but I could spend hours in there.  I used plain red, shiny string, but they had red and white stripped string that would have looked good too (like a candy cane). Or you could use plaid or red or green ribbon or thin rope for a beachy look. Use your imagination. They had tons of different kinds of holly and leaves, etc too.  I liked these because they were shiny like the spray paint.  If you do not have a Hobby Lobby near you, try Michael’s or Joann’s or any craft store.  Lucky for me, we have all three of these in our area.

Step Four – Glue string around the bottle top.  I used my glue gun but if you don’t own one, I think just using any glue (probably even elmers) would work to get the string to to adhere to the bottle.  Make sure your glue line is in the back.

Step Five –  Glue letters to the string.  I used these cursive ones, but they also had 3 or 4 other styles.  You might choose to spray paint these too, but I kept them natural.  Also, you don’t have to use the word ‘Joy’ you could spell out whatever you want depending on how many wine bottles you have (you lush – haha just kidding, I won’t judge).

Step Six – Put the holly or whatever you bought into the bottles and set out for decoration.

So there you have it.  Easy Peasy!  You could also do something similar with mason jars, which you can pick up at any craft store for fairly cheap.  Paint, decorate and then put a tea light candle in it.  That would look great too.  Please let me know if you make these.  I would love to see!

Pallet Projects

Projects made out of pallets…

Pallets are so versatile and you can usually find them for FREE.  If you search Pinterest or Google for ‘pallet projects’ you will be amazed at the things you will see. The possibilities are endless.  I have always wanted to make a porch swing using pallets, but I think it is beyond my scope of capability.  Maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to try it.  Anyway…..

Check out all the fun things that my friends have made using all the left over pallets from the House house renovation.  How cool are these?

But my favorite project (below) was made by my crafty friend, Bannon, who has been featured on this blog before.  You could see all her other fun DIY projects here, here and here. We hung this up in our entryway. Cute right?

Another friend made this absolutely amazing table from pallets, just not pallets from the House house.  There is a whole tutorial on how he built it here.  Isn’t it awesome?

Our own pallet project….

As for us, well we saved a bunch of pallets for our own project too.  We plan to turn them into a garden on the side of the house.  We are going to get started on that soon.  Has anyone ever tried this?  Did it work?
