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

Crochet Slouch Hats

I've been trying to sneak in some crocheting here and there. It relaxes me so when I'm feeling overwhelmed I grab some yarn and my crochet hook and hunker down on the couch. I've been working on several different patterns for beanies and hats and I just can't find my favorite. I love the faux… Continue reading Crochet Slouch Hats

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

Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday! It was so cold this weekend! Saturday was in the 40's but with the wind blowing it felt like it was mid 30's. Saturday night the temperatures dropped down into the lower 20's. That is crazy for us here this time of year! It's normally in the 50's or lower 60's. I found… Continue reading Weekend Happenings

Happy Halloween!

It's finally Halloween and I'm a little glad to see it come and go. My daughter is 11 this year and she's at that weird in-between age where she's too young for certain things and too old for certain things. She wanted to go trick-or-treating, so we will, but she's just not as excited about… Continue reading Happy Halloween!

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. Maybe because it was the easiest costume to throw together. And the cheapest since I already had everything. There… Continue reading Halloween Decor

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
