Spring Decorating with DecoCrated

Featured

Add some spring touches to your decor with a Spring 2019 subscription box from DecoCrated! That’s exactly what I did when I recently finished up my spring cleaning. Well, at least the main floor of our home is clean and organized. Upstairs is another story.  haha! 2nd floor, 2nd story, another story. See what I did there? Get it? I know. I’m so weird.

Anyway, so…DecoCrated.com. With the exception of my monthly Young Living order, I am not usually a fan of subscription boxes. I find that usually they’re filled with sample items that I wouldn’t choose for myself (skin care with questionable ingredients, jewelry that isn’t my style, etc.). Know what I mean? The surprise part is happy, the contents … eh.

However, when it comes to decorative accents, count me in! I’m all about adding a few new pieces to freshen things up and I know you’ll fall in love with this subscription box too. Because if there’s something in there that you don’t care for, simply tuck it away in your “gifting” closet/box for a friend’s birthday or pay it forward and brighten someone’s day ‘just because’. But, my decor-loving buddies, I think you’re going to enjoy sprinkling some new spring accents around your home, adding a couple of key spring touches or swapping out something old for something new.

It’s like treasure in the mail, a Christmas gift curated for your home each season, you guys! I love that! Imagine having a fun box filled with beautiful decorative home accents every quarter! You don’t have to ‘imagine’. Spoil yourself and make it happen.

Because I’m a nerd and really value getting the biggest bang for my buck, I mentally added up the items as I unboxed. Break it down. Each month when you walk into TJMaxx or Target or your favorite store or do some ‘window shopping’ online, how much is the cost of what’s in your cart for decorating? If you’re like me, it’s definitely more than $23.33 a month for an item or two. This Spring 2019 DecoCrated subscription box came with 9 items + a free gift (10!) so that’s approximately less than $7 for each piece of home decor when you use the code “DIY10” to get $10 off your subscription (did I mention free shipping?). SCORE! 

I created an unboxing video with all the details: 

After the video, I crated it all back up and popped over to the #helloredreno studio to refresh the decor. Take a look!

Eclectic Sun Room Makeover

Featured

This little room at the back of our house has gone through several transformations. We mostly call it the mud room but it’s more of a sun room, reading nook, sitting room, overflow from the dining room when entertaining (more seating)… a quite space off the dining room with French doors leading to the back patio.

Boho Sunroom Makeover

Well, the sun room got an unplanned makeover when we used some leftover paint from the man cave paint job. And it gave me a chance to turn Spring cleaning into something so rewarding – a room makeover with a zero budget by shopping the house. But first, let’s take a trip down memory lane for this little room…

When we bought our house, it had a single door and blue indoor/outdoor carpeting. Right away we added French doors, slate tile and a fresh coat of paint. 


It’s one of my grown up “doll house” rooms. I’m always changing it up in there by shopping the house for furniture and accessories. The HUGE mirror was frameless and above the fireplace in our living room when we bought our house. We moved it to this room to give the illusion of more space and light, added a frame and a vinyl monogram.

Do you move furniture and decorative accessories around from room to room to freshen things up or do you call it permanently perfect and enjoy things as is for years?

There was even a brief stint as a breakfast nook.

I love an eclectic vibe of the collected decor…can you tell?

This DIY half globe light fixture cover is one of my favorite projects:

And these DIY no-sew script curtains. They didn’t go back up this time but I’ll be finding somewhere else in our home to use them. Do you have decorative accessories that you hang onto because you’re just so in love?

Remember when I had these vintage teacher desks in the kitchen too? Again, always rearranging. It’s just such a joy! Motivation to clean, something new without spending. I’m addicted. 

Holiday decorating too!

Okay, already! I took these beautiful Sauder chairs from our reading nookreading nook @diyshowoff @SauderUSA #puttogether

Let’s see the latest look, shall we? Finally, right? I am in love with the happy and bright atmosphere with the dark moody wall color! The collected decor from shopping around the house gives it an eclectic boho feel!

And all that’s new in this room is the wall paint (which was actually leftover, so again, zero dollars spent! Gotta love that!). Wall color: Carbon Copy (Behr)
