Weekend Finds: Upholstered Dining Chairs

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.

$100 Room Challenge: Bedroom Makeover Week 2

Vintage White Curtains With Floral Embroidery

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!

Christmas Crafts & Ideas: Yummy Kourabiedes Recipe

Kourabiedes Recipe

Every year, during and before Christmas there is a big fight over this, all over the country: kourabiedes or melomakarona. I like them both, but my husband simply hates kourabiedes and loves melomakarona. My mom loves kourabiedes! Our 3 year old, naturally likes them both! After sharing Katerina’s recipe for melomakarona, it’s time to tell you all about my favorite kourabiedes recipe. My friend who makes these combines 2 recipes to come up with this one. They are the tastiest ones i have ever eaten! Anything she makes is delicious! Especially the sponge cake, which she uses for her amazing fondant cakes.

Κάθε χρόνο τα ίδια αυτή την περίοδο. Κουραμπιέδες ή μελομακάρονα; Ποιος προτιμάει τι; Να πω την αλήθεια μ’αρέσουν και τα 2. Ο άντρας μου προτιμάει τα μελομακάρονα, ειδικά τα πολύ πολύ σιροπιασμένα. Ο μικρός μας πάλι, προτιμάει και τα δύο. Λογικό! Αφού λοιπόν η Κατερίνα μοιράστηκε την συνταγή της για μελομακάρονα, ήρθε η ώρα να σας δώσω και την συνταγή για τους περίφημους κουραμπιέδες που σας υποσχέθηκα. Η φίλη μου, από την οποία τους έμαθα, συνδύασε 2 συνταγές σε μία και το αποτέλεσμα είναι εξαίσιο! Ό,τι και να φτιάξει εδώ που τα λέμε είναι εξαιρετικό! Ειδικά το sponge cake που χρησιμοποιεί για τις υπέροχες τούρτες με ζαχαρόπαστα που φτιάχνει!
