I’m so excited to announce my new partnership with LOWES for the holidays! I’m giddy over this partnership. Mainly because it means that my holiday decor goes up next week! Jingle Jingle Yall!!!

I know what you are thinking..

you: LOWES! Isn’t that a home improvement store… what are you doing building a house?

me: No I’m not building a house… I’m building a H O M E.

awwww…. see what I did there!

While Lowes does have all the nuts and bolts and MDF and cement bricks to build a house… LOWES also has lots of christmas decor to make your house a H O M E this season. So let’s get this house ready for the holidays. I have a few tips and tricks from some snazzy designers to help you get your DIY!

Lowes had the best holiday party last month in NYC. They worked with some faboosh designers to create the HOLIDAY READY HOME. Each of the rooms was created with DIY and off the shelf items you could find at LOWES. * not all items in these images are found at lowes*

First up – the entrance to the H O M E. created by Design Mom. Look at those boots! And those white wreaths!

Lowe's Deck the Halls and Walls and All

To add a pop of color, paint your front door in a holiday red. We used the color Art District from Valspar Signature’s paint and primer in one. Paint is a simple, economical update that really makes a statement about your entire house. Add bright white lights nestled in bright white garlands to create an instant snowy holiday feel inexpensively. Customizing holiday decor to fit your family’s style can be easy. Start by taking a simple item, like a store-bought pine wreath and tuck metallic paper leaves into the branches for texture. If you don’t have a fireplace, show off your holiday stockings by hanging them along stair railings, or attach them with ribbon to a pretty branch, and hang the branch on a wall over a sofa.

The foyer was done by Little Green Notebook.

Gold and silver hues are so pretty around the holidays. Buy a small tree and do something fun, such as creating an ombre pattern on your tree with glass ornaments painted in matte finish to create a gradient. Other people love looking at your Christmas cards, so decorate tables in your center hall with platters and antiques to display cards you’ve received. You can also string cards with clothespins.

Infuse a dose of holiday into the kitchen, with pops of red accent pieces or stripe the legs of a red kitchen stool with white painter’s tape for a candy cane theme. Install a new backsplash with glass mosaic, subway or even ceiling tiles or wallpaper to give the kitchen a personalized look. One of our favorite projects is creating a “DIY Light Marquee.” Take cardboard letters, spray paint them gold and poke small holes in for the lights, then weave a strand of bulbs behind the sign to connect all the letters. Display on your countertop or above your cabinets.

Set the mood for your holiday feast with a neutral color palate and invite the warmth of fall into the space by painting accent pieces with fall colors such as Valspar’s Desert Travels and Bear Claw hues. A stylish rug, curtain panels, pillows and items from nature can make a room feel cozy and comfortable for holiday gatherings. Create fun, stackable DIY plywood boxes by building wood boxes in a variety of sizes and painting the exterior white and the interior in fall or winter tones for a pop of color.

One of my favorite DIY bloggers P.S. I Made This  designed the ultra cool living room.

Introduce a new warm and inviting paint color on your walls like Valspar’s Perfect Storm to add lasting décor and style long into the New Year. For a fashionable look, add decorative accessories spray painted in metallic colors such as gold and silver. Use wallpaper in different ways to make a statement. Instead of wrapping an entire room, try creating frames made of wallpaper and molding. Don’t be afraid to take risks and do things you don’t normally do. Create a story with the items in your space and personalize for family and friends.

In your guest bedroom, add touches of greenery and lighting fixtures to the wall for reading, simple DIY artwork to help ensure guests feel right at home. Show your creative side with chalkboard-painted walls to greet overnight guests with a personal “Happy Holidays!” message. For an extra dose of cheer, drape decorative red-beaded strands around a mirror or lighting fixtures for a touch of holiday. New light fixtures can give an ordinary bathroom an instant update. For graphic visual interest, install white tile with dark grout.

Oh and then I ate a CRONUT!!!
