Christmas Wreath DIY

I love looking at all the beautiful Christmas wreathes, but some of them are ridiculously expensive! I always make my own wreathes, usually out of Dollar Tree items. I wanted something a little simpler this year. I got this really cute white and silver wrapping paper at Walmart with reindeer on them so I wanted… Continue reading Christmas Wreath DIY

Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments

Happy Wednesday! We are under a winter storm warning until tomorrow here in Virginia. I can hardly believe it! Usually we don't start getting these warnings until January! We are supposed to be getting a little bit of snow but mostly ice. Yuck. I hope it melts fast! I don't have time for ice. I… Continue reading Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments

HOW TO TRANSFORM A LAMP SHADE WITH CONTACT PAPER

Do you have an old lampshade that needs an update? Bushra shows us how easy it is! Check it out!

Bushra's Lifestyle

It’s a small DIY project to share. I get tired of my decors very fast. This lamp I had from Ashley furniture’s a few years ago. It was good with my old bedding but, was not going to work with my new room makeover.

Before

I decided to swap the lamps in the room.  I found beautiful brass lamps somewhere in a Garage sale, as brass is so much in fashion today.

I spray painted the lamps. After the lamps got ready, I needed lamp shades with them, I shopped around in stores and online. Nothing was less than $50 a shade. It means $100 for the pair.

I finally used my brain, a bit  (normally I don’t use my brain at all), and come up with an idea of using the same lampshades by giving them a new makeover.

Here is what I used to give them a new look,

It was an easiest makeover…

Halloween Decor

It's almost Halloween! My daughter already has her costume. She is going to be a bird this year. I thought that was pretty unique. Growing up I was almost always a witch. I'm not sure why.

DIY Window Frame with Wreath

A few weekends ago my mom and I went to a rummage sale and I picked up this picture. I only wanted the wooden frame so I could make a "window" out of it. There was a handwritten note on the back of the picture written to the owner stating the year it was made… Continue reading DIY Window Frame with Wreath

More Fall Decor

I finally finished my fall wreath for my front door. I also made one to go in my picture window behind my couch, but I haven't been able to get a picture of that yet. Maybe for another day. I already had the wreath and all the decorations on the wreath came from Dollar Tree.… Continue reading More Fall Decor

Abandoned Mill

I hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday was a pretty busy day for me. My mom and I went to a church rummage sale. There was a lot of furniture there, but nothing that really caught my eye. At least not for the prices they had stuck on them. I did end up… Continue reading Abandoned Mill

My Favorite Dollar Store

I discovered an online dollar store a while back and decided to give it a try. I placed an order and waited. And waited. And waited. I was so disappointed that shipping was taking so long! Until I realized that it had been shipped. And delivered. To the wrong house! Our regular mailman retired and… Continue reading My Favorite Dollar Store

The public schools are closed today and the high school football game scheduled for tonight was pushed up to last night. The local weather is still saying that Florence… Continue reading Fall Hurricane Candle Holder DIY
