A nook in our master bath turned out to be the perfect place to put an old desk that I painted and turned in to a dressing table and makeup vanity.  http://www.worthingcourtblog.com/2015/02/master-bath-vanity.html

Our #kitchenrenovation  is so close to the end that I can taste it!  We recently added the new backsplash, cabinet hardware and a new rug too!  http://www.worthingcourtblog.com/2015/02/kitchen-tile-backsplash.html

Great idea for when long draperies aren't necessary.
 
I love the proportions and fabric used for these inside mount grommet curtains.  Such a softer look than shutters and a great idea for clients that want to show off their millwork.  

This photo is from the talented Oksana Ambroz, her website is  www.itsoksana.com which is worth a visit - check out the laser cut fabrics.  Stunning!

Look what Donna did to create a little mini #Christmas  village.  So cute!
 
A junk styled "snow village"
See it at / http://bit.ly/cratesnowvillage

Don't have room for a big snow village? Me either! This one just involves a crate, a tea light, and a special print for the background. Perfect to hang on a wall or tuck into a dark corner!

Also up for grabs... a $100 shopping spree you are gonna LOVE by +Lucy Akins of Craftberry Bush!

Farmhouse Kitchen Vignette and a Place To Store Kitchen Linens

Introduction
I'm a home decor blogger who loves inspiring others to make their spaces more beautiful!  Not many of us can afford (or want) to throw out everything we own and start from scratch.  I love finding ways to work with what I have and love to help others do the same.  I invite you to join me on my blog, Worthing Court, where I create, decorate and fabricate - always on a budget. Additionally, I'm honored to part of an amazing group of women who make up the organizational team for the Southern Bloggers Conference.
