- Guest post # 1

I have a nice surprise for everyone , I'm gonna start having guest posts every week ( hopefully every week) first I wanna thank Carrie from  lovelyetc  for writing this post on such a short notice. Her blog is full of amazing projects make sure you go visit her after you read this amazing post :)

Hello My Champagne Taste Readers!  I’m Carrie from Lovely Etc. It is such a pleasure to be joining you here on my new friend Rasha’s site. Rasha has really great style and I have been having a great time getting to know her.
I am all about making my home unique and meaningful – without spending much actual money to do so.  So I thought I would share some of my favorite tips to make that happen.
1. It is almost never too far gone!
I love searching yard sales and thrift stores for great vintage finds and various other junk. Now, to be honest, even what I call great finds, most other people would call junk. But there is almost nothing that can’t be turned into something amazing.
For example, this sad, forlorn cabinet.  Loose glass, peeling veneer, no back – it wasn’t too pretty to begin with.

Some repairs and a bit of paint and it no longer seemed ready for the trash at all.

- Glaming Up a Boring Table Lamp

The last few weeks were hectic. I was preparing the Spring Summer Collection for my clients back home. I don't know if I've mentioned before but I run an online fashion boutique for clients who are mainly in Lebanon, Africa and Canada. In addition to my full time job, DIYing is a hobby and not my business :)

Having said that this justifies why I haven't tackle any major furniture renovation. To stay in the loop I would like to share some of my old and simple projects.

Here is how to Glam up a boring Lamp: Simply by adding some bling bling. I bought a basic black table lamp from Homegoods, I wanted one with hanging crystals, but at that time I couldn't find any black lamp with black crystal cheaper than $250. I bought black crystals from ebay and attached them to my boring lamp :) and here are the after pictures
