Teenage Bedroom Decor with Christmas Lights

I finally did it! 

Yes, I finally finished the sheer curtain inspiration from Pinterest for Daughter #2's bedroom.
She's a teenager. A very patient teen which was so awesome while waiting for dear oldmom to do her room. Many times the word patient and teenage do not go together but in this case.....she was an inspiration.
 I wonder if this moment can get me through the rest of the teen years. LOL

This has definitely been a JOURNEY.....and a to spell that word...
Wow, that has always been a tough word for me ☺

Okay...back to the lights. Below is the Inspiration picture on my Pinterest Board. 

The chandelier was a great find at Hobby Lobby over the holidays.
 A couple of missing crystals and I was able to buy it for a bargain way below the asking price. 
I doubt Daughter #2 even knows a few crystals are missing.

Pat-On-the-back for this thrifty Mom ☺

Now I'm off to work on the bed skirt and window treatment. 

Take care and have fun!

Here We Go...Let the Adventure Begin!

Time to begin this adventure....
I appreciate you stopping by. J
(I do smiley faces all the time – and use punctuation any English teacher would frown upon J )
 I created my blog as a place to document and share my DIY projects,
(trials and errors) Quirks and Delights.
Most of all to share my delight to learn, create, and stand back and say "I did that!”
I have always loved to try new DIY project.
I like to stretch the boundary of what is good enough to what is FANTASTIC!
(And the boundaries of what my husband may think is just fine – really big grin!)
At times I feel very “left-handed” (right-handed for all the Leftys –I don’t want to offend J )
So for anyone that may consider themselves a Beginner, you are in good company.
And for those that are Domestic Divas, you have found a place for encouragements and hopefully resources for fun.
 Here we go….down the road as a proud DIYer!!
