Weekend Finds: Black Lacquered Credenzas And Buffets

This post contains affiliate links to black lacquered credenzas and buffets.

Yes, i know. They are not the most practical pieces of furniture out there, but they are beautiful! Black lacquered credenzas and buffets. I love them. Although taking care of them is not an easy thing, they are just gorgeous! Like a piece of jewellery for our homes. We have a small black sideboard, not lacquered. But with a toddler around here and another one on the way lacquered would not be a good idea. But as he grows older, i am definitely getting one!

Ναι, το ξέρω, το ξέρω. Δεν είναι και ότι πιο πρακτικό κυκλοφορεί σε έπιπλο, αλλά είναι πανέμορφοι! Οι μαύροι λακαριστοί μπουφέδες! Τρελαίνομαι! Αν και η φροντίδα τους δεν είναι εύκολη, είναι υπέροχοι, δεν είναι? Σαν κοσμήματα! Έχουμε ένα μικρό μαύρο μπουφέ στο σπίτι μας, αλλά όχι λακαριστό. Βέβαια, με ένα νήπιο εδώ και ένα ακόμη στο δρόμο, με μικρά παιδιά στο σπίτι γενικότερα, η λάκα και δεν είναι και πολύ καλή ιδεά! Αλλά…δεν θα μου την γλυτώσει ένας όταν μεγαλώσουν!

$100 Room Challenge: Bedroom Reveal

 This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

That’s it! The $100 Room Challenge is over and it’s reveal today for everyone taking part in this challenge organized by Erin of Lemons, Lavender and Laundry.  This was my first time taking part in a such a challenge. And i loved it! After living in this house for 6 years i can finally say that i like our bedroom and i love making the bed!

Here’s what our terrible bedroom looked before the makeover. And here is how it looked like way before that floral headboard. I never really liked our bedroom furniture, but i had only 2 options, and that was the best of the two. I tried experimenting with color, but it’s just not my thing obviously!

$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.

Weekend Finds: Upholstered Dining Chairs

 This post contains affiliate links to upholstered dining chairs i love and i hope you do too.

One of the questions i receive the most is about our dining chairs.  We purchased them 6 years ago from a Greek store. So far i have not been able to find them online, so i thought i’d share with you a few patterned upholstered dining chairs. Not all of them are black and white with floral pattern, but i could definitely see them in our dining room.

Μία από τις πιο συχνές ερωτήσεις που δέχομαι έχει να κάνει με τις καρέκλες της τραπεζαρίας μας. Τις αγοράσαμε πριν 6 χρόνια από ένα ελληνικό κατάστημα. Μέχρι στιγμής δεν έχω καταφέρει να τις ξαναβρώ, παρ’ολά αυτά βρήκα μερικές παρόμοιες. Όχι απαραίτητα ασπρόμαυρες ή με λουλουδάτη ταπετσαρία, αλλά σίγουρα μερικές που θα διάλεγα για την τραπεζαρία μας.

  Do you prefer upholstered or are you more of a classic plain wooden chair?

  Λοιπόν, ντυμένες με όμορφο ύφασμα ή απλές ξύλινες καρέκλες για εσάς?

$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 rashes showed up on both my hands. I thought it was another incident of chronic urticaria, but there was a surprise. It’s hand, foot and mouth disease. I have not slept for 2 nights 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 trelis 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!
