5 easy and inexpensive projects to help dress up the dinner table
Make your dinner table look fabulous without breaking the bank
HOUSTON – The holidays are here, and if you're planning to host a dinner party soon, you might want to take notes.
Upcycling Expert Sarah Teresinski with Redeux Kidz shows you how to create a fabulous dinner table without having to break the bank.
One tip is printing out a menu and putting it in a thrift frame.
"The thrift frame cost me one dollar and there are so many different printables online," said Teresinski. "It's just a great little added touch, it's the table look so nice and elegant."

Had so much fun with my sweet friend @derrickshore on @houstonlifetv :) We totally upcycled a closet door into a runner for a Holiday table! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I can’t wait to share with you my upcycled tablescape! Tune in on Nov. 5th to @houstonlifetv @nbc and see my latest 🎬 segment all about upcycling and reviving! I spent under $50 for everything on the table for 6 people! This includes all glassware and silverware that I purchased secondhand. It also includes my centerpiece, greens and lighting for the table and an inter-active gift for your guest that they can take home with them! #sew #goodwill #makers #refashion #tutorial #makersmovement #sewist #organicdesign #sustainabledesign sewing #upcycle #creative #sustainabledesign #nbc #houstonlife #upcycled #thriftedfashion #diy #tutorial #fashion #style #rework #rethinkreuse #makersmovement #plaid #diytable #entertain #diyholiday #upcycledsheet #budget #diytable #tablescapes #thanksgivingdinner @houstonlifetv @nbc #thanksgivingdinner #thanksgivingdecor #thanksgivingdiy
