  • [Au Naturel]: You can’t go wrong with being natural with this next favorite. The white background in this Easter décor helps the green and tan color pop. White, or neutrals in general, offer a good template for other colors.

[Wreath Flair]: No holiday is complete without a wreath, especially Easter. I found this really cool and modern wreath at It is beautifully shaped with white tulips. Other colors are available too!

[Speckled Eggs]: I’ve seen many egg-in-vase center pieces, but one is special because the eggs are speckled and they vary in size.

[Egg Ornaments]: How come I never thought about this idea? Egg ornaments! This is really cool to add to a bottom on a blah glass vase to bring some pizzazz to a center piece or flower arrangement.

[Oo la la…… Copper egg Centerpiece]

The contrast of the turquoise and copper eggs in this centerpiece is giving me life! Ahh..mazing!  These two colors are by far my favorites and they work so well that i can help but put it on this list.

DIY Throw Pillow Covers

I recently published a post that referenced my old “one-design-for-all” throw pillows and what I did to transform them. Sewing pillow covers are so easy and do not require a lot of time. Anyone can do it! I decided to make the envelope style pillow covers because the zippered style intimidates me. Installing zippers is a no-go area for me. I’ve never even used my sewing machine zipper foot. But I’m sure I’ll sum up the courage to use it someday.

Check out a tutorial for sewing this pillow covers here by Melanie Ham.

So here are the before and after photos of my throw pillows:


Transformation in progress. 


As you can see I was very ambitious in completing this project. I bought various prints of home decor fabric and got to work. I wasn’t very particular about having perfect angles so I cut my fabric into 20 x 40-inch pieces. Basically, these pillow covers are one-piece covers. Nothing fancy!

So do you all have any “one-design-for-all” pillows that need to be brought back to life? Try this project now. You will be amazed to how much difference these can make to update your living space.

DIY Serving Tray Makeover

Do you know why I dream about going to the thrift store frequently? Actually I wish I could go everyday or maybe every other day. I feel like a kid in the candy store at the thrift store because my “DIY makeover” eyes open as soon as I get there. I’m always so eager to scan the shelves and furniture area of the store to find items that could be easily transformed into useful items, brought back to life with a simple coat of paint, new parts or a quick fix. I once bought a floor lamp without a lampshade and a dent in its base for $12.99. If I had just looked at the item as is I would not have bought it. However, I was able to see beyond that it’s current state. Yes I bought the lamp, wiped it down, fixed the dent on its base and bought a new lampshade from Walmart. Now the lamp looks like new and you would never have guessed that it was a thrift find.

Ok. Enough preaching. Let me get back on topic.

So on a lovely thrift shop day, I snatched a wide wooden tray from Savers. See photo below. Of course It was not love at first sight, but I was able to see beyond the present.

Here it is in its initial state, this poor thing :(.

I spray painted the tray gold and then added contact paper. Walmart is my go-to place for spray paint (it cost about $4 for a can) and you can buy contact paper at or at

So what do you think? Leave a comment:).

DIY Cushioned Accent Chair Makeover

Have you ever wished you could reupholster your furniture in a few easy steps without breaking the bank? Today I will be sharing my DIY vintage chair makeover project that required re-upholstery and what I did to bypass the detailed and tedious process of re-upholstering a cushioned furniture.

By the way, I forgot to take before photos of the chair because I was too excited to get my hands on it and make it over. However, I’ll take a stab at describing its before condition.

This chair was a light oak color and the cushion was covered with a large print floral (sage, brown) fabric. From the looks of things, the chair had been previously reupholstered and my plan was to reupholster it again. I was going to throw the chair a reupholster-reupholster party. My plan was to revive it with a fresh wood stain and a contemporary fabric for the cushion part of it. Mind you it only cost me $6.99 :).

The materials I used include:

  • Heavy/Medium Home Decor Fabric
  • Wood Stain
  • 3M Sand Paper/Sand Foam
  • Paper Towels
  • Small nails/Utility Staples
  • Hammer/Staple gun
  • Screwdriver
  • Paint brush (to apply wood stain)

So you ask, what is the trick I used to bypass the tedious re-upholstery process?

After unscrewing the cushion from the chair, I placed it in a 20” x 20” inch pillow cover that had been previously removed from a throw pillow. It was the best casing for the cushion! (I did not bother to remove the old fabric or replace the foam or plywood or cardboard or any other parts from the cushion.) On the underside of the cushion, I then pulled the fabric in several directions, starting the middle, folding it flat and nailing it into place to form a smooth finished look.

Before I sanded the chair frame

Next, I took the chair frame outside to sand. I sanded it with a 3M sandpaper, wiped it down several times with a damp cloth and let it dry.  Then I stained it with some Red Oak Stain, which I previously used in my DIY Bookshelf Nightstand Project.  I applied several coats of stain until I was satisfied with the results. I attached the cushion back onto the frame and tada!!!

I really enjoyed working on this project and you can too! It makes a great accent chair in my living room. I’m satisfied just walking past it. It brings me joy, hehe.

Feel free to leave a comment or questions for me.

Happy DIYing,
