I can’t believe its November already. Does anyone else feel like this year has gone by in a blur? As the holiday season rapidly approaches I’ve been feeling the need to make the guest room up to par for any holiday guests stopping by this year. Having a guest room that helps invite people to make themselves at home really helps improve everyones experience as a traveler!
When we started, this guest room was a bit boring, just plain walls and a bed. The first step in revamping this room was to remove all the furniture and update the paint throughout the whole room. We used a light grey to give some color and depth.
I’m in love with the look of reclaimed wood walls and I was super excited when I learned how easy timberchic® could make installing a reclaimed accent wall in this room. This beautiful DIY solution is made of reclaimed river logs and the smooth finish makes it perfect for installing as a headboard in the guest room.
This week’s DIY projects kick off with an easy DIY technique that will let you create vintage looking throw pillows for every room of the house from Lauren at Gather & Flourish. [Don’t tell my husband I’ve already started a set for our living room.] I love how versatile freezer paper is for crafting and this transfer idea is one I had never heard of before! I love Lauren’s design style and I can’t wait to add a few of these pillows to my home.

Celebrating an engagement with a DIY Cheese Gift Set
My cousin Jeannie and her boyfriend Andy got engaged over 4th of July weekend and we celebrated their engagement at a fabulous wine and cheese party last weekend. They’ve been dating for several years now and I’m so excited to be a part of their wedding party and celebrate with them as they plan their wedding.
The engagement party was a wine & cheese theme so I knew I wanted to give them a Hickory Farms Cheese Sampler Gift Box to enjoy alongside a fun DIY Cheese Board. Personalizing a Cheese Board with a bit of wood burning takes just a few minutes and is the perfect addition to any gift set!
Ready to ring in the New Year in style? I’ve put together a quick tutorial on the Denver Style Magazine Blog for how you can make your own designer look-alike champagne glasses in time for the big night!
How will you be celebrating the start of 2016?
