A Few Tips How To Transition Your Summer Home To Fall

It`s almost the end of the summer and fall is just around the corner. I can`t believe September is in just in a few days... Where has the time gone..? 
With each new season nature changes, and our homes changes with it. We want to put up new decorations to make it beautiful, but sometimes it can be overwhelming and look like a to much work. But, with a few simple tips whole process can be easy and budget friendly. So, if you intending of preparing your home for fall season, here`s my tips.
Leto će uskoro biti gotovo i ma koliko nam bilo žao zbog toga, jesen je pred nama. Ne mogu da verujem da je septembar za svega par dana... Kako vreme brzo prolazi...
Sa dolaskom svakog novog godišnjeg doba priroda se menja, a sa njom i naši domovi. Ukrašavamo domove novim dekoracijama i trudimo se da sve bude prelepo, ali ponekad nam je sve to previše muke i posla. Međutim, sa par jednostavnih pravila ceo proces može biti lak i ne mora iziskivati veliki trošak. Ako ste imali nameru da svoj dom pripremite za dolazak jeseni, evo mojih jednostavnih predloga koji će vam, nadam se, dati poneku dobru ideju.
1. Change your decorative pillow covers and add blankets
Fall is season full of warm, earthy colors like orange, gold, copper, red... Bring those colors into your space simply by changing your pillow covers and adding a soft blanket on the sofa. Use textured fabrics like flannels, knits or even faux fur for additional seasonal feeling.
1. Promenite dekorativne jastuke i dodajte udobno ćebe
Jesen donosi tople, zemljane boje kao što su narandžasta, zlatna, boja bakra, crvena... Unesite ove bogate tonove na jednostavan način u dom - zamenite navlake na dekorativnim jastucima i dodajte meko ćebe na sofu. Koristite tople, bogate materijale i teksture kao što su flanel, pletenine ili čak veštačko krzno da dodatni osećaj udobnosti.
2. Place bowls of seasonal fruits all around the house
Budget friendly and healthy way to bring fall feeling  is to place bowls of fresh fruits such as grapes, apples and pears all around the house. All you need is a little trip to a grocery shop. This easy to make fall display is equally decorative and useful as a reminder to your family members to eat fresh fruit every day!
2. Postavite činije sa ezonskim voćem svuda
Veoma pristupačan i zdrav način da u dom unesete dašak jeseni su činije i korpe pune sezonskog voća kao što su grožđe, jabuke i kruške. Sve što je potrebno je da prošetate do pijace ili prodavnice i izabarete slasno voće. Ovaj jednostavan dekor je istovremeno i veoma koristan jer će podsetiti članove vaše porodice da redovno konzumiraju voće.
3. Bring outside inside with free decorations nature gives us
Go for a walk and pick everything you like. For example, bundle sticks and branches together and place them in vases or jars. Pine cones of all shapes and sizes can look quite lovely in large glass or ceramic bowls. Fall decor shouldn’t have to cost too much, as the matter of fact, it can be totally free!
3. Unesite prirodu unutra koristeći besplatne dekoracije koje nam priroda daje
Iskoristite ovo predivno vreme za šetnju i ponesite sve što vam se dopadne. Na primer sakupite grančice i stavite ih u vazu ili teglu. Šišarke svih oblika i veličina izgledaće veoma šarmantno u velikoj staklenoj ili keramičkoj činiji. Jesenji dekor ne mora da bude skup, zapravo nože da bude potpuno besplatan!
4. Accessorize with a fall plants
Fall brings some really beautiful flowers with it and they are the perfect and inexpensive way to update your home decor. If you`re lucky enough to have them in your garden, just bring a few flowers indoors and create amazing fall setting.
4. Dekorišite jesenjim cvećem 
Jesen donosi i pregršt prelepog cveća, a po meni, nema boljeg i jeftinijeg načina da se prostor ulepša od tog. Jesenje cveće obično nije skupo i dugo traje. Još ako ste od onih srećnika koji imaju svoju baštu, dovoljno je da uberete nekoliko cvetova, stavite ih u vazu i napravite jedinstven i mirisan dekor. 
5. Add seasonal warmth to the table
Set your table with seasonally themed pieces in warmer colors, mix crystal glasses and wood cutting boards and enjoy a fusion of rustic style with elegant sparkle. As a finishing touch, form a eye catching table centerpiece of pumpkins, nuts and pine cones with candles and fresh fruit.
5. "Utoplite" i svoj trpezarijski sto
Neka i sto doživi svoju jesenju transformaciju uz tanjire i pribor u toplim tonovima. Dodajte uz to kristalne čaše i drvene daščice i stvorite savršen spoj rustičnog i elegantnog. Kao završni detalj napravite centralni dekorativni aranžman od bundevica, oraha i šišarki kojima ćete dodati sveće i sveže voće.

DIY Coffee Table - Gold & White



In my living room, coffee tables has been changing several times in a last few years. First it was this one, then this one...  Seems like they couldn`t settle down in the space... It`s not a large room, so I always thought that we need the glass coffee table, but I couldn`t find the right one. 
But, life always have his way of finding the right heroes for the story. One big old three in the park fall down, one piece of glass was thrown away, forgotten and found. That was the beginning of story. My role was to bring them together and give them a new life. 
Story begins when I found a round piece of glass. While I was thinking how to make a glass coffee table, I knew I want something more modern, mid-century and gold. 
Enter Hairpin Legs!! I found them online, and once they arrived, I had to figure out how to attach them to the glass top. I couldn’t drill right into the glass, so while we were in our cottage, I find interesting piece of wood I was totally forgot of. I knew right away that`s the missing piece I was looking for. 
Now, since I have all the parts, first I mark and drill wholes for legs and make it a little bigger on the top to hide the screws. My hubby secure the legs to the wooden top and it was my turn to use a wood putty and to hide the screws. A little bit of sending make it smooth and ready for the next step. spray painted the entire new base and new legs in gold with Effect Gold spray paint and paint wooden top with white paint.
When we brought it home I couldn’t love the way it looks in the room more. You would easily pay $200 or more for this piece, but the total cost was under $20, including all supplies, spray paint and legs. Even better, this lovely coffee table was so easy to make!! Now, I need to brainstorm what to make next! 
U mojoj dnevnoj sobi klub stočići su se menjali više puta u poslednjih par godina. Prvo je bio ovaj, pa onda ovaj. Ali nekako nisu mogli da se uklope u prostor... Moja dnevna soba nije velika i zato sam uvek mislila da nam treba stakleni klub stočić, ali nikako nisam mogla da nađem onaj pravi.
Ali, život uvek nađe prave junake za svoju priču. Jedno veliko, staro drvo u parku je oborio vetar, jedno staklo je obačeno, zaboravljeno i pronađeno i to je bio početak priče... Moj zadatak je bio da spojim njihove sudbine i dam im novi život.  
Priča počinje kada sam pronašla okruglo staklo. Dok sam razmišljala kako da od njega napravim stočić, znala sam samo da hoću nešto moderno, možda u mid-century stilu i zlatne boje. 
Naravno, izbor je pao na Hairpin noge!! Pronašla sam ih online i kada su stigle trebalo je da smislim kako da ih pričvrstim za staklo koje sam imala. Naravno da nisam mogla da bušim staklo, ali igrom slučaja, dok smo bili u vikendici naišla sam na interesantan komad drveta koji smo imali i na koji sam potpuno zaboravila. Čim sam ga ugledala, znala sam da je to deo koji tražim. 
Sada kada smo imali sve delove, mogli smo da počnemo da sastavljamo sto. Prvo sam označila i izbušila rupe na drvenom delu za nogare. Rupe sam pri vrhu malo proširila da bih sakrila šrafove. Moj dragi je zašrafio noge za drveni deo i prepustio meni da nastavim. Pošto sam gitom za drvo popunila sve neravnine i sakrila šrafove, ošmirglala sam da bude glatko i spremno za sledeći korak. Effect Gold sprejem sa efektom zlatnih listića sam ofarbala noge i celu bazu sa donje strane, a gornju ploču sam obojila u belo. 
Kada samo ga doneli ga i postavili u dnevnu sobu, bila sam oduševljena. Bez problema biste za ovakav sto dali više od 10.000 RSD, a naš ukupni trošak je bio manje od 2000 RSD, sa svim materijalom, bojama i nogama!! Najbolje od svega je što je bilo tako jednostavno napraviti klub stočić!! Sad ne mogu da prestanem da razmišljam šta sledeće da napravim!!
