I’m *slowly* pulling out some Christmas decorations around here and have some fun plans for others coming up after Thanksgiving, but this wooden tree collar took all of 90 minutes to make and is the perfect start to the holidays At Charlotte’s House.
When I tell you this post is down to the wire, I mean it’s DOWN TO THE WIRE! I actually photographed the room last week, but editing and hitting publish was the challenge here! I digress… our third floor bathroom is DONE! Fin! Complete! With everything all said and done, this makeover was my favorite type: dramatic before/ after but not any real “heavy lifting”… i.e. mostly superficial!
One of the things I love about the holidays is SETTING A TABLE! I made over our dining room for the One Room Challenge years ago, and I loved the idea of a fun eclectic tablescape. But when I went to set the table… I needed napkin rings. And fast. These took me LITERALLY a minute each to make and… I kinda love them! (Material list at the end of the post!)
When I was puttering around with ideas for our guest bathroom, the floor was a major dilemma. I’ve retiled floors before and… it’s intense. It requires lots of time, lots of materials, and little things like removing toilets and pulling apart baseboards. Given our chaotic house this month… none of those things sounded like anything I wanted to get into. So… I painted ’em!
