This week’s #romancingthehome challenge was decorating for the holidays. Now, I love Christmas (even though it is summer time for us) and I love Christmas decor. I can’t get enough of it. Drives my husband nuts 😂. He should be grateful that our major retailers seem to be rather lacking in that department, because I… Read More Decorating for the Holidays – Kids bedroom Christmas decor

So, if you saw my Before & After post on the ombre painted desk, you would know that I promised you a tutorial on how I did the ombre painted furniture technique that I used with the DIY chalked paint I made.

This week’s #romancingthehome theme is a special gift. My interpretation went a bit further… a specially wrapped gift! Who doesn’t love that?! I know that I do!
