A friend of mine gave me this old chest that had great potential, but needed a little update. I gave it a quick coat of black paint and decided to surprise my daughter by covering it with images of her all time favorite band, My Chemical Romance. I still need to get a couple of knobs that are missing, but she loves it. Trash to treasure!

I was so excited when I saw the Dollar Store Challenge at http://www.oursouthernhomesc.com/2014/01/dollar-store-challenge-smores-station.html. Each month there will be a new item featured from The Dollar Store to showcase the creative ideas you can come up with. It’s amazing to see the creativity. I actually saw a cake plate idea when Pinterest first became popular and as is pretty standard practice for me, I promptly ran to the Dollar Store and bought about 10 candlesticks and made cake plates galore. I actually used several varieties for my Thanksgiving dessert buffet. Excuse the grainy photo as I tried to crop the photo unsuccessfully. You can see I spray painted one yellow and simply used E6000 to glue it to a matching plate. On the left I used a large serving platter and matching bowl. I was having so much fun mixing and matching thrift store dishes.
I have been updating my home decor over the past few weeks as the house seemed so bare after putting the Christmas decorations away. I love the wood blocks I made some time ago as you can come up with at least 12 sayings, covering all Holidays and also everyday use. I set them up on my hutch.

I saw the idea for the candy cane hearts on Pinterest and created a quick and easy Burlap Love Banner.
I love to decorate my mantel for the different Seasons and Holidays and finished up my Valentine’s Day mantel today. I knew I wanted a banner so I of course went to http://thegraphicsfairy.com for some adorable images to add and will be linking this to Wow Us Wednesday http://www.savvysouthernstyle.net
