Blog Anniversary Week: Giveaway Central!

Generated image

It’s time for another party here at Embellished Bayou, and this one is complete with prizes for YOU!  My one year blog anniversary is coming up on February 6, so to celebrate, I am hosting fabulous GIVEAWAYS all week long!! Be sure and visit every day for your chance to win some really cool stuff!

When I started this blog a year ago, it was really as a support for my Etsy shop, but it has developed into so much more.  I never dreamed I would be posting nearly every (week)day and have close to 300 followers.  I have discovered a whole new world and have gone into crafting and decorating overload!

This week I’ll be doing two posts per day.  One to look back at some of my earliest posts and highlight some of my favorite projects from the past and one hosting a GIVEAWAY!  So let’s get started….

Last April I did a quick post featuring a chandelier I transformed for my best friend’s little girl.  This is still one of my favorite projects I have done.  You see these fancy chandeliers all over boutiques and online, often for hundreds of dollars.  I used her old dining room chandelier and transformed it from this:


to this:



All it took was a can of spray paint and some new crystals (in addition to the existing ones that I cleaned) to have this chandy dripping with pink girly-ness!  How cute is it over her little drawing table?? chandelierafter2 chandelierafter3Now, CLICK HERE for a SUPER giveaway!  Also, please visit these parties I’ll be linking up to:
