$100 Room Challenge: Week 3, Ceiling and Table Lamps

 This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

Wow, next Wednesday is reveal day for the $100 Room Challenge! Thank you Erin. This month is amazing so far! My bedroom makeover is almost done. After sharing the terrible before and our new curtains and wall decor, it’s time to deal with the ceiling and table lamps for the room. A table lamp for our home office – Nightstand and doing something about that poor vintage chandelier i got from my grandmother.

Την επόμενη Τετάρτη είναι η μέρα που θα δούμε πως μεταμορφώθηκαν όλα αυτά τα δωμάτια με $100. Ευχαριστούμε Erin! Αυτός ο μήνας είναι φανταστικός. Η ανανέωση του υπνοδωματίου μας σχεδόν τελείωσε! Αφού σας έδειξα το απαράδεκτο πριν και τις κουρτίνες και την διακόσμηση του τοίχου, ήρθε η ώρα να ασχοληθώ και με τον φωτισμό του δωματίου. Ένα φωτιστικό για το γραφείο μας-κομοδίνο και να κάνω κάτι και για τον καημένο πολυέλαιο που μου έδωσε η γιαγιά μου.

$100 Room Challenge: Bedroom Makeover Week 2

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I got out of schedule this week. So sorry. I had strong itching on Monday evening and then rashe showed up on both my hands. I thought it was my another incident of chronic urticaria, but there was a surprise. It’s hand, foot and mouth disease. I have not slept for 2 night in a roll and the itching is…oh my! No words for it! I pray that no one gets it from me. These were all the health news. Back to the makeover.
 This week, continuing the low budget room makeover, i changed the curtains and added an eye-catching decoration above our bed. I am excited to say that both of these cost me $0! Yes, $0…My mom had the curtain fabric, but has never used it. I was looking for white curtains, and there you have it! Our sheer white curtains, with white floral emroidery on them. We have floral pattern on our bedspread, also white on white. And my home office chair, i borrowed one form our dining chairs, has also floral upholstery, black and white.

But, the big star of this room is the decoration above the bed. You know those (affiliate link) expandable trellises fences with the artificial ivy, right? Well, i got one a couple of years ago, removed the plastic leaves and used them for decorating one corner of our balcony railing. I did not use a specific pattern, so it would look more real.  But, i did not throw away the fence. It’s been outside, in a corner and now is the time for it’s glory! Above the bed decorating with an expandable trelisses fence!

So far, the cost for this low budget room makeover is 28$, for getting the cushions and fabric for the bed. Not bad! Next week i’ll tell you all about the bedroom lighting and our home office!

DIY Christmas Decor Ideas

We missed last week. I am sorry, but i am giving you the recipe for the kourabiedes. My friend has mixed 2 recipes in one and i have to be careful with the instructions and ingredients. So, we thought it would be best if she shared it with you. She is a busy woman, though. Hopefully next week she will find some time for us. This week i have 3 DIY Christmas Decor ideas for you. Enjoy them!

Απουσία πήρα την περασμένη εβδομάδα. Συγχωρέστε με, την συνταγή για τους κουραμπιέδες θα σας την δώσω πάντως. Η φίλη μου έχει πάρει 2 συνταγές και έφτιαξε μία, οπότε πρέπει να είμαι προσεκτική μην πω κάτι λάθος. Αποφασίσαμε λοιπόν, ότι είναι καλύτερα να σας τα πει η ίδια. Είναι πολυάσχολη όμως. Ελπίζω την άλλη εβδομάδα να τα καταφέρουμε.  Αυτή τη βδομάδα έχω για εσάς 3 ιδέες για να φτιάξετε το δικό σας Χριστουγεννιάτικο ντεκόρ!

3 Craft Ideas That Stand The Test Of Time

Over the past years i have made a thing or two. Most of them for our home, some craft ideas published and some not. A few of them, like the wine bottle vase, are no longer here. Friends and family are using them in their homes. And there are these that are either old or getting too much traffic and are still holding strong. Let’s have a look at them, beginning with the oldest one.

Στα τόσα χρόνια του μπλογκ έχω φτιάξει κάποια πραγματάκια. Κάποια τα δημοσίευσα και κάποια άλλα όχι. Μερικά από αυτά, όπως το μπουκάλι κρασιού που έγινε βάζο δεν είναι πλέον εδώ. Φίλοι και οικογένεια τα έκανα δικά τους. Υπάρχουν και μερικά, τα οποία είναι παλιά ή ταλαιπωρούνται  αρκετά, παρ’όλα αυτά αντέχουν! Ας δούμε πως τα πάνε, ξεκινώντας από το πιο παλιό.
