Interesting info on the value of a kitchen remodel via Cabinets To Go, to see the full image, click HERE. We're planning a complete kitchen remodel in our home in the next year or so - doing most (all?) the work ourselves will definitely help keep the cost down!

Most stores are still offering free shipping to arrive before Christmas, so if you still need a few gifts, you're not too late! Here are a few of my favorites for under $50. 

1. Rifle Paper mini notebooks love the small size, perfect for tossing in your bag! // 2. Horned Animal Hooks The black is great and love the shape and size! // 3. Monogram candle Only a few letters left (maybe you'll get lucky and find yours!) // 4. Pom Pom Stripe throw Reminds me of something you'd find at Anthro, love the colors and texture! // 5. Monogram hand towel set Wouldn't this make the perfect gift?! Even with the monogram, it says it will still arrive in time for Christmas! 

And some favorites for over $100! 

 1. Target Threshold Tufted Bench love this bench and the price! // 2. Gold Flatware Take your table setting up a notch! // 3. West Elm Key Pouf love the pattern and it's on sale! // 4. Tory Burch Shoulder Tote Love the color, thin strap and tassels! // 5. Gucci Oversize Sunglasses Great shape and love the contrasting arm color! 

I'll be taking some time off for Christmas next week, but make sure to stop by Monday for a new thrift store rehab before and after! See you Monday!!

Easy DIY Buffalo Check Christmas Stockings | Tutorial

Today, I'm sharing a DIY tutorial for the large buffalo check stocking that I made for The Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge.

To get inspired, I flipped through my Holiday Pinterest board and was inspired by The Makerista's amazing mantel. I had purchased this fabric from Ikea for the space, but wasn't sure how I was going to use it .. so this was the perfect spot!

Want to make your own? It's super easy and only costs a few dollars each!

- 1 yard of fabric (I only made two, but you could probably get 3 to 4 out of a yard)
- Sewing machine (you could also use permanent fabric adhesive, just make sure to keep the line super straight for crisp edges)
- Pom Pom fringe

1. Trace an existing stocking onto your fabric

2. Cut it out.

3. Trace your stocking (two sides per stocking) I traced this one instead of the original so they would be as exact as possible. 

4. Finish the top edge. Iron it 1/2" and fold that over on itself so the edge is finished secure by sewing or permanent adhesive.  (Also iron the entire stocking at this point if it needs it)

5. Sew around the outside of the stocking (right side in), leaving the top open. *Note: The direction of the finished top doesn't matter if your adding trim, but if you don't, make sure the folded edge is on the outside when sewing.

6. Turn the stocking right side out and add trim with permanent fabric adhesive. To finish it, I glued a small tab on the top right of the stocking to hang it up.

That's it!

SO easy!! I hope you'll give it a try!

DIY Leather Tote + Tassel | Giveaway

Today I'm sharing another DIY Christmas gift idea - a leather tote! Thanks so much to The Leather Hide Store for providing the leather! I don't share a lot of non home decor related projects, but today, I'd like to introduce you to my second love - handbags. Over the years, I've developed a collection (second only to my chair collection, David just counted and we have around 28 .. yikes! Time to finish projects, figure out what we're keeping and sell the rest!)

Looking for Ghost chair replicas at a good price? This site was recommended by The Hunted Interior, so I gave it a try! I ordered a few months ago (sorry I meant to take photos earlier!!) and purchased two from the imperfect section (I think they were only $30 something each!?) unfortunately, I can't find that section now (but if you do find it, the imperfections weren't too bad .. so I say go for it!) Normal price, $64.99 is still a steal!! (Shipping was around $30)
