A Revolution in Lighting | Sponsored Post

GE Lighting has released new lighting products and we're getting a chance to work with them again.  I can't tell you how excited I am since the last time their products made such a huge difference in our house.

A big problem people have while shopping for light bulbs is understanding what kind of bulbs work best for their space.  Not all bulbs are created equally and knowing that will enhance the beauty of your home.

GE Lighting wants everyone to experience the best lighting products for their space, so you will be able to take part in GE Lighting's $200 light bulb giveaway.  Look for that post soon!  But while you're waiting, check out how LED's work and how they can save you money.  And who doesn't like saving some money?!

Fancy X Console Table

I've been in love with this Restoration Hardware console table, but the price tag is ridiculous!  

So of course I got my husband to build us one of our own for a fraction of the cost.  We started with Ana White's Fancy X Farmhouse table plans and reduced the measurements to make a console table.  This console table only cost us $35, saving us over $1,200!

What a steal right?!  I'm so happy how it turned out.  We're going to use those same plans to build our new dining table.  We were hoping to get it done before Christmas, but it looks like that's not going to happen, so we'll save it for our first project of the New Year.

A School-Age Bedroom Makeover | Part II

The school-age bedroom is complete...well semi-complete.  We have some additional plans to dress-up her walls with paint and wood molding, but her daybed is finished and I am relieved to say the least.  We put this project off for so long and I'm glad to finally see it complete.

This was all completed with just (3) pieces of MDF board, paint and inexpensive hardware I found at Hobby Lobby on clearance for only $2.99 a piece.

I won't go into detail on the sizes of the cuts we made because it was custom for the space we were working with, but this piece was completed for under $100...AMAZING right!

We talked about our inspiration for this transformation a few weeks ago.  And it turned out just as I had imagined.
