My Ten Minute Makeover

My friend Shelly has been hooked on the ten minute makeover challenge. She has inspired me to take the challange and see what quick make over I can do in just ten minutes. It can be as easy are rearranging the items you display on your bakers rack.
Here are her before and after photos.
AFTER
Now she's all set for Easter.
My ten minute makeover turned into about an hour, but it was simple and FREE. Yes, free! I was never quite happy with the table in my foyer. I love all the individual items on the table, but it was lacking something. Well with less than a yard of left over drapery fabric and 3/4 of a yard of two types of trim I began the transformation.
I decided to add a table runner. Since sewing is something I love to do, there was no cost involved. I added a coding to the sides of the runner and finished the ends off with some coordinating tassel trim. Boy am I glad I kept those tiny pieces of trim. It worked out perfectly. Here you can see the cording I used and my favorite trim with the glitzy mirror pieces. The fabric an embroidered faux silk and I added some crystal beaded strands around the moss ball. Can you ever have to much bling.
Here's my finished ten minute (one hour) makeover. Take a look around your house and see what you can change the look of. It doesn't have to take a lot of time or money. It will put a smile on your face and it's a wonderful feeling to know you did it all by yourself! Soon you will find yourself hooked on the idea of a quick makeover.

Looks beautiful! I do love the 10 minute idea. Of course, it never takes 10 minutes but the feeling is great.

Looks great! I do the same thing, whip up a pillow or a runner whenever I want to change things up.
Thanks for Sharing!

I love that your 10 minutes turned into an hour! that's how I am, but I emerge from the sewing machine with what I intended and something else that sparked an idea!

The runner really did add to the overall feel! And there is certainly a good amount of satisfaction having done something yourself. Thanks for sharing.
