I am knee deep in Thanksgiving Day recipes, Holiday Decorating and doing some awesome Style Boards.
I realize that I am using some amazing inspiration that I've gleaned from other awesome bloggers over the years, and that I should take a moment to share my favorite DIY Blog posts. I hope someone out there can use these posts to help spiff up a room for the holidays.

Personally, every window in our house (except the one in the bathroom- cause that would be weird) is covered with an Ikea Shear. So cheap and easy. Speaking of cheap and easy- check out this AWESOME curtain update from High Heeled Foot in the Door. LOVE the added pop of color:
