We have taken bits from here and there in the house, and put them together for a very simple and elegant Christmas. It took very little time, or expense.

A few dries flowers from the garden, add some rustic pieces, old Christmas treasures, and everyday objects. Keeping im mind the goal is a simple Christmas theme.

I think we have pulled it off. Let me know if you and your home share in this French Country/Old World look this year. If you haven't already, please subscribe to the YouTube Channel for more creative ideas!

A French Country, Old World Makeover for the Library

We're changing our dark Victorian Library into a light, airy French Country/Old World look for very little cost in this DIY Video.
Below are a few of the new things that have changed.

First we have the Chifferobe which was stained a dark cherry, and not in the best of shatp. We gave it a cream color base coat, a few stencils, and a light stain to seal it.

Above we have, what use to be a cheap, plain black computer desk, and we have given it the same treatment as the Chifferobe. This has turned out very well, and is certainly a great improvement on what it once was.

This little side table has undergone a tremendous transformation. First it started out covered in a false wood look, then it was painted a cream color, and now it has been given an Old World look with faux painted panels, a blue wash, stenciling, and finally a light stain to seal it.
As always, let me know what you think, and keep on watching for more creative, and inexpensive decorating ideas!
