I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. We had an amazing day! It was our first time to host, and we had Matt’s extended family over. It was a lot of fun with lots of laughter and family! The benefit of hosting was we hardly had to do any of the cooking. Sweet deal in my book. I can’t wait to share some of these pictures with you! I hope you enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend. I did a little Black Friday shopping last night with my sister-in-law and am now gearing up for my son’s birthday tomorrow. It is crazy busy times, but it is all so fun and full of love. I am truly blessed!
Even though its been a busy week I didn’t want to ignore my Friday Project Spotlight. I wanted to share a quick chair makeover that my sister, Olivia did last week. Olivia is the other half Dancing Zebras, our Etsy craft store.
Olivia, and my niece, Charleigh, were in town for a week. We crafted and did all sorts of fun thrifting shopping adventures. It was a perfect week! My mom was so sweet to watch the boys one afternoon and finish up “school,” so I could have a girls day! So, my sis and I loaded up our girls and went to four thrift stores in a row. It was so fun!
We found lots of good deals and fun things to re-do/re-vamp! Don’t you love Reagan’s Baby Gap hat we found for $1.00?? I love brainstorming with Olivia and dreaming of how to make ugly things beautiful again.
One of Olivia’s amazing finds was this old chair that she redid with a little paint and a pretty piece of fabric! I love it and might secretly be wishing I had bought that chair!
The chair folds up, and it would be so easy to store and yet bring out when you need that extra seat! I love the colors she choose and combined together! She unscrewed the seat, spray painted the chair, then recovered the seat with some fabric she had left over from another project. She then went back and gave it a light sanding job. Didn’t it come out so cute?! It always amazes me how quickly these thrifting finds can become treasures.
We had a lot of fun on our shopping trip. I found some fun things that I was able to use this week to decorate for our Thanksgiving feast.
I got that little pumpkin holder for $1.00 and those glass vases for $.80 each. I simply filled them with some acorns I had collected. I just adore that wood bowl I found for $1.00!
Thanks for stopping in and seeing my Project Spotlight item. Thanks Olivia for letting me feature your chair makeover! Do you have a project you would like me to spotlight? I’d love to hear from you and share one of your creations! Message me and we can work it out! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll be back on Monday with more from my Tidbits of Me series.
