I’m happy to announce that I just completed the Holiday Design Challenge for Del Mar Fans. As you remember, I chose to decorate the entryway of a family member’s home and it was so much fun!
I was so excited when I unwrapped the Murray Feiss Modello table lamp sent to me by Del Mar. It’s festive, and it instantly brightened up the dark wood door and table.
The style of the home is traditional, so I chose to keep the elements classic, but punch it up a notch with a blue, white and metallic color scheme. Resources: Turquoise Blue Shiny Ball Ornaments • Silver Mesh Ribbon • Silver Trim Wire Ribbon • Florals
To complement the table lamp, I refinished a wood side chair using Rust-Oleum® Satin Enamel Spray Paint in Shell White.
Using medium (80-100) grit sandpaper, I gave the chair a good rub down to remove the finish and prepare it for the paint. I suggest using a spray grip to ensure that your coats are even. Plus, you won’t have a sore finger from pressing down on the paint can trigger.
Here’s a quick DIY that anyone can do. Purchase gift bags and turn them into instant art! Two little girls live at this house, and I wanted to add a youthful touch. I found these two cute bags with holiday illustrations on them for $1.99 each.
Carefully trim the edges off and use a cutting knife to remove the handles. Slide them into pre-matted picture frames and presto! Holiday art.
Thanks so much to Del Mar for including me in the Style Challenge. Since I’m in the process of moving, this gave me the holiday decorating fix that I needed. =) Be sure to head on over to their Bright Ideas Blog and check out the entryways of the other bloggers participating.
