A simple before and after. ⁣ ⁣ I have a whole empty house to stage for just over $1000, so I’ve got quite a few DIY projects. This is one I’ve been looking forward to. ⁣ ⁣ These vintage chairs have such a lovely shape and are sturdy but the fabric was old and tired. ⁣ ⁣ So I grabbed this deep blue velvet I’ve been hording for a few years. Anyone else a fabric horder?? I know I’m not alone in this so fess up. Or at least that is what I tell myself. ⁣ ⁣ It’s a wet, soggy, cold day in Austin so all the sanding and painting I need to do is going to have to wait till tomorrow. ⁣ ⁣ #cozycollectives #myinterioroasis #showoffyourdecorstyle #mylovelyhomelife #myhybridstyle #housethreeinspired #mixerofstyles #makingmyhavan #givemeallthecolor #renomyhome #greathomestaketime #saynotoemptywalls #globalbohemianchic #myhomeobsession #wearevivir #thriftwithus #itsprobablythrifted #givemeallthecolor #thedelightofdecor #littlebudgetbigstyle #myinspireddiy #mybrightdiy #girlsjustwanttodiy #eclecticallymade #ispymoderndiy

Christmas bedroom! Now, has this garland already fallen in the middle of the night and scared me? Yes. Has that tiny wreath been up over the bed for more than 6 months as a tiny placeholder I meant to replace? Oh yes. And have I put off buying a rug for one year?! Also yes! So if you’re like me and you’ve got more temporary fixes than permanent solutions I am here for you! Sending all the pause buttons to slow down and enjoy the holidays and worry about the unfinished projects in the new year! ❤️ . . . . #ispyraddesign #colorwithAT #crashbangcolour #myhyggehome #thatroomisEVERYTHING #mybrightdiy #targethome #christmasdecor #sassyhomestyle #mixerofstyles #mycolourfulinterior #colorlovedecor #myhybridstyle #girlsjustwanttodiy #itsprobablythrifted #scrollstoppinghome #rshome #themostwonderfultimeoftheyear #bohostyle #boldbohemians #jungalow #thenewbohemians #seasonaldecor #masterbedroom #smallaccountlove #dreaminghomeblog

The frames are back in place! I went on a bit of a staining spree when I was doing the floating shelves, and stained all the grey wood finishes in my living room a darker ebony- black stain. That includes the coffee table, side table, the fireplace mantel and these frames. Did I tell you guys about my $20 fireplace mantel? More about that later when I reveal this entire room and what I started with. #ispyraddesign #idiyedthat #thriftedhomestyle #littlebudgetbigstyle #mykindredabode #thisthriftedspace #makingmyhaven #shakeupyourstyle #thriftstorefinds #cornerofmyhome #howidohome #mystyledsquares #apartmenttherapy #myhousebeautiful #littleaccountlove #homewithrue #designsponge #thatroomiseverything #mycuratedvibe #thatcozyhomelife #mycreativeinteriors #colorismyjam #girlsjustwanttodiy #hartleyhomies

I forgot to come up with a caption for today. . Lies. I couldn’t think of one. . So I thought I’d share with y’all some words of wisdom bestowed upon me by a dear friend many moon phases ago. . “Any pizza can be a personal pizza if you try real hard & believe In yourself”. . I hope these words help & guide you in the right direction in life as they have me. . Please feel free to share any quotes that have helped you in life as much as my quote has helped me after the beep. . Beeeeeep.

Couple fun facts about this little tree on the right. 1. It was our first Christmas tree my husband and I bought, the year we got married. 2. It has all our personal, family ornaments hanging on it. (I also let me 4 year old decorate it herself. Hence why everything’s on the bottom. 😂) 3. This tree fell over right after I took this picture. Because I took the base off and shoved it into a basket for this picture (a basket you can’t even see in this picture.🤦🏻‍♀️😂) . . . . Okay now tell me. What’s you’re favorite ornament you have on your tree? And why is it your favorite? . . . . #howyouhome #theeverygirlathome #mydomaine #mycb2 #the_real_houses_of_ig #myhousebeautiful #housebeautiful #howwestylehome #meandmyabode #littlebudgetbigstyle #shakeupyourstyle #myhybirdstyle #cozymodernvibe #myinspirediy #showthatinspo #thedelightofdecor #showoffyourdecorstyle #girlsjustwanttodiy #prettyandoverlooked #mymidcenturymix #christmasdecor #diychristmas #fauxbrickwall

What we dubbed "No Spend '19" has QUICKLY turned into "Take All Our Money Before '20" 😂⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ The shower glass got ordered for this (completely tiled!) shower today and should be here in 10-12 days. The hardwoods for the new house arrived, appliances are ordered, cabinets are (hopefully) getting ordered this week, the wall comes down this week 🤞 aaaaand I'm over here getting quotes to see what it would cost to cover the stamped ceiling before floors go down Monday.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ I feel lucky to have a background in this and can talk the talk with these contractors (85% of the time), but I feel like so many times, women especially, get glazed over on these types of negotiating jobs. My best advice is get multiple quotes for things, be kind, and ask what you don't know so that when the next contractor comes through, you're a little more knowledgable. . . These tricks saved us $1000 on the shower glass here alone. It makes me feel a little better to know we're saving so much even while our current emoji seems to be "💸" . . .⁠ . . .⁠ #thewinwayhouse#bhgorc#oneroomchallenge#wearevivir#diytile#tiledshower#diymasterbath#masterbath#diyrenovation#myinterioroasis#ispymoderndiy#handmademodernhome#showemyourdiy#cljsquad#thatroomiseverything#checkoutmydiy#shakeupyourstyle#mylagomhome#housetohomehaven#thisminimalhome#mydecorvibe#juniperhomespotlight#sodomino#mybhg#apartmenttherapy#girlsjustwanttodiy#myinspireddiy#thatcozyhomelife#peepmypad#modernfarmhouse

Guys!! I made a wreath basically for free! This year is a budget Christmas in our house because all our extra cash is going towards things like tile and toilets. However, we are determined to bring Christmas cheer into our home. This tree, ornaments and wreath were under £50! Check out my stories tomorrow to see how it’s done! Happy Christmas ...16 more sleeps! Woohoo! 🎄

Lots of changes going on in the living room. I stained the tables and mantel an almost black, bought these mirrors and ordered sconces that will go on either side of these mirrors. I had planned to put the mirrors up over the weekend because I needed an extra set of hands for them but, between two dinner invites, one lunch invite and middle-schoolers volunteering at a fund raiser, I just couldn’t get to them. Now husband is out of town for the week and I would just have to wait another week to put them up. But I still decided to share the picture because in the words of @chrislovesjulia, #dontwait. #ispyraddesign #idiyedthat #thriftedhomestyle #littlebudgetbigstyle #mykindredabode #thisthriftedspace #makingmyhaven #shakeupyourstyle #thriftstorefinds #cornerofmyhome #howidohome #mystyledsquares #apartmenttherapy #myhousebeautiful #littleaccountlove #homewithrue #designsponge #thatroomiseverything #mycuratedvibe #thatcozyhomelife #mycreativeinteriors #colorismyjam #girlsjustwanttodiy #hartleyhomies

F E E L I N’ C U T E Another Sunday, another nice little job completed. This is a mini footstool that came to me by a friend’s mum who purchased it in a chazza and was going to do something with it herself but never got round to it. It was in a sorry state (sadly no before pictures because I was too eager to start stripping) but now has been recovered in grey velvet with white pom pom trim, because why the hell not! . This piece is for sale so message me for details ☺️ . #chapholstery #bespokefurniture #upholstery #supportsmallbusiness #girlsjustwanttodiy #footstool #pompomtrim #greyvelvet #miniisthenewmaxi

Some might wonder if the Holiday season becomes less magical as your children get older. Well, I am here to assure you that it doesn’t! Watching my girls organize a gathering, do the shopping, baking, and the dishes is pretty magical to me! All I had to do was sit back, relax, and take pictures. I even got to make another DIY project that was on my list. Thank you for delicious Christmas cookies @itsjolorraine and @ella.epm 🥰🎄 🎄 The polymer clay napkin rings were inspired by @allisonsextoninteriors and @hgtvhandmade . • • • • #colorlovedecor #domehome #christmascookies #christmas #christmasdecor #christmastablescape #raedunnchristmas #girlsjustwanttodiy #stopdropanddiy #hgtvhandmade #hgtvhandmadehome #howyouwow #littlebudgetbigstyle #santamug

H O M E A very happy customer purchased the large deep button footstool and kindly sent me pictures of it in its new home. I’m very pleased that it has found a lovely living room to call home ☺️ . #chapholstery #deepbuttonfootstool #bespokefurniture #traditionalfurniture #upholstery #supportsmallbusiness #girlsjustwanttodiy #happycustomer

My extraordinary sister knocked her work tri-party out of the park! Holiday party, 30th anniversary of her department, and service awards banquet all in one. She made everything seen here by HAND from the fireplace (appliance boxes) to the snowstorm feature (cotton balls) and all of the teeny tiny magical details. 130 of her coworkers and their families had a great time. I’m so proud I should be sectioned!
