5 Minute Easy Christmas Tree Skirt

Have you gotten your tree up yet? I just finished working on mine this week. The boys enjoyed helping with the tree and with this project…haha
Do want to make a really easy tree skirt? You are just in luck. So I took a circular table cloth I had on hand (actually the previous owner of this house, left it in the garage! FREE)
Fold the tablecloth in fourths
Then starting at the corner of the table cloth, draw an arc. I used a piece of string and a pen to draw an even line.

Cut on the line

Unfold and admire your new tree skirt! lol
I thought this was the easiest way to make one because honestly, who wants to hem around a huge circle? Not me. So that’s why I went with the already done for me circular tablecloth. If you don’t have one laying around, they’re aren’t that expensive so it is also very frugal!


Oh and it's really good at catching all the glitter from my ornaments, I guess that's what it's for, huh?

Brown Ombre Dresser Redo

Hey Lovely Readers, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! First, I wanted to let you know that I'm guest posting over at Blissful and Domestic, go check it out

I'm also here to share a project I finished up last week. I found a nice dresser at D.I. for my son's bedroom, but it definitely needed a makeover. 

First since it was a laminate piece of furniture, it needed a coat of primer. I used the Glidden Gripper.

Once the coat of primer was dry I painted the body of the dresser and one of the drawers with the straight brown paint.

Then I poured the paint in 3 separate cupes and added a little bit of lighter tan paint that I had leftover from touching up our apartment. I just added a bit more to each additional one

to make each drawer progressively lighter.

There you go, you've got an ombre dresser. I love how it turned out, exactly what I wanted! I just love being able to take a boring piece of furniture and making it a piece that is unique and has character. 

I'm still not quite sure what to do with the drawer pulls though, any ideas?? Please share!

So have you done any fun furniture transformations lately?? Stop by my facebook page and share them with me, I'd love to see them!
