I've been working on a lot of DIY's around the house to try and make the most of furniture and decorations we already had rather than giving them away or donating them. For example, this is a table that was given to me so I upcycled it by painting it and adding the glass to it, which it didn't have.

Isn't it gorgeous? Wow! Blows my mind!
Last week we got our leather sectional, which I am currently trying to find decorative pillows for. I am looking for some solid colors and some decorative peacock pillows to go in front of the solid ones. I also need to change my pillar candles since I am no longer going to decorate in the red and burnt oranges I had planned to do.

I have all of these ideas in my mind of what I want to do with my new decor. I want to use all of the peacock colors to decorate between my living room and dining room.
I went shopping this weekend at Pier 1 Imports and found a bunch of new items that have the peacock colors. For one thing they had this peacock diffuser, which I loved. HOWEVER...I did not want to pay $30 for it!
So I decided that I was going to make my own (cost me about $5 or less to make)....and here it is...voila!
Much nicer I'd have to say, especially for the value. I purchased the glass and the diffuser reeds at Wal-mart. The rest of the items I had on hand.
Off to bed I go...this little head of mine has way too many ideas and I'm going to save them for the weekend. Nite nite!
