BFF Open House Link Party #36 and BFF Creatively Living!

Happy almost Friday all. It’s been a quiet week here at TAIC…had to have a little medical thing done so laying a little low and slow. Getting ready for college boy to head back to school and enjoying the last few days with our great young man.

This week I’d like to introduce you to another talented and creative person, Katie from her blog Creatively Living. Katie describes her blog as: Taking everything from thrift store finds, to dumpster dives and making them into a beautiful home.

Not only does she manage to do that for her own busy home ( she’s a military spouse and mom to 5 kids!) but shares her talents with others, like doing a room makeover for her sister. This week’s feature will be a little different since I’m going to share several projects from Katie’s room makeover. Let’s take a look: 
When will you be over to my place Katie?

Another corner of this room showcases this fabulous chair re-do:
Here’s a closeup of the chair:
Isn’t it gorgeous?!  Katie also made over the frames she used to create the gallery wall from those her sister already had, unifying them with color and adding mats.

I love the silhouette Katie did and framed, and that little catch all next to it? It’s a condiment holder! You can also see in the mirror the chadelier Katie made from two wall sconces she found at Goodwill.
You really need to pop over to Katie’s to see the whole room and SO much more!

Now, what have you been up to this week? If you made it, link it and no advertising or stores please. Otherwise…party on!

PS...mark you calendars for Monday January 16. I have a FUN treat coming :)
