4th of July Tablescape..using what you already have to dress up your holiday table!

4TH of JULY backyard tablescape!

 As usual I love to get our back patio ready for the weekend and Holiday weekends are even better!! Outdoor entertaining is probably one of my favorite things to do! However constantly buying new table decor can cost a pretty penny. For my 4th of July tablescape I decided to use what I had first before going out and purchasing new items.  


 To begin I brought out my backyard staple item (the galvanized tray) .  I had my daughter make a festive flag table runner to use as the main focal point.  Previously on Target runs I had picked up the star straws and the little white "Stars & Stripes" sign. (Both a dollar!) 


 The red and white and blue pom poms the girls had in their dramatic play bin so I grabbed those and placed them in my Target Olive bucket for some height.  I had no flag napkins and was considering running up to Dollar Tree for some but as I looked through my "napkin collection" (we all have one right?) I found some bright red Coca Cola ones! Perfect! Nothing says summer in America like Coca Cola! Going along with that theme I also grabbed my Coca Cola glasses. 


The red, white and blue sailboat was already outside as patio decor. I decided to use my HomeGoods gold and white placemats in place of the usual bamboo placemats I use outside.


The red wine glasses are actually acrylic glasses we keep outside hanging up on the Tiki Bar.  I grabbed two and added them to the tray decor.  I decided since its easier to have throw away utensils outside I needed to dress up some mason jars to display them in.  All I did was simply wrap some twine and added to construction paper stars.


The white plates and red bowls came right out of my cupboard!



 Isn't the table runner adorable?! Plus my daughter is soo proud she made it! 



After all that I realized I had everything I needed! This whole outdoor tablescape cost me zero dollars! More money to spend on food and cocktails for the weekend! I hope you all have a great Holiday weekend!

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017 Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop!
This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!
 Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers!
I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.

EASY Master Closet Makeover...I'm talking NO tools needed!

As most of you know a couple weeks ago I got so sick and tired of my crazy disaster of a master closet I decided to take on organizing it....however not just cleaning it out.  I needed to come up with a better closet system for my husband and I.  
Originally I thought "Hey, I'll take down all these rods and buy a closet system that drills into the wall...and it will be so fun and easy!"
HAHAHAHAHA.  Yeaaaaaa right! Those bad boys are expensive and who is kidding who here I can barely use a drill.  SO then I decided to look for simple closet systems that would solve the issues we had in our closet.  Which were:
1. Shoes 2. Purses 3. Hats
These three issues were what really dragged it down and made it look like a hurricane swept through.  You can take a look at the "BEFORE" pics below as long as you promise not to judge!  I originally told you all I wasn't going to share my "befores" but a lot of you got a little angry at me..and you were totally right.  …
