The Bell of the Ball!

       From ThisTo This

When I first bought my house, I put up a little hand-me-down door knob bell at Christmas time.  Very quickly I realized it was more than a decoration, it was a little announcement that someone was coming through the door.  As a result, for over five years, I have had an UGLY unappealing Christmas ornament as the last thing people see when leaving my home.

Yesterday, it got a little makeover!!
I removed the gaudy holly and ribbon, spray painted it gray to match my living room, added some stickers, a key, and a sheer black ribbon…and ding, ding, ding…we have the bell of the ball!!
Hope this inspires you to take a little ugly convenience in your home and turn it into a cute, little piece you can be proud to call your own.
