Hello loves, I hope you guys are having a great week. Things are finally settling down with renovations and I can relax and do one of my favorite hobbies, blogging! I cannot explain how much I have missed being able to sit down after a long day of work and get lost in my blog. It’s definitely not complete but I wanted to show you my dining room. I love this picture because you can see how close my living room and dining room really are. When we started looking at houses we decided on a few must haves and one of them was an open concept floor plan. It may not be a large space but it’s absolutely perfect for the two of us. Click the read more link to see where you can get my dining room decor, enjoy. [Read more…]
Hello farmhouse lovers, I don’t know about you guys but I have had a slight obsession with all things grain sack lately so I was ecstatic when I received these coasters from the Etsy shop Old Lake George. I call them my “nice” set of coasters that are used when guests come over because they go perfectly with my decor haha. They also match my table runner which was the perfect coincidence 🙂 This cute little coaster set sells for only $8 and comes in other colors and patterns, how can you go wrong? This amazing shop also sells tons of farmhouse table runners, pillows, signs, throws and much more. Make sure to check out Old Lake George and get your own rustic decor pieces to fill your little farmhouse, enjoy. [Read more…]
Hello loves, I have been dying to do a post like this since I started this home decor blog but I never had a front porch until now 🙂 I couldn’t wait to decorate it! Before I moved I started collecting outdoor decor like a crazy person. That’s why I was so excited when I received this antique galvanized sap bucket from the Esty shop Pine Springs Cottage. They were sweet enough to send me three of them to fill my porch!! Now I just need to build some amazing farmhouse furniture to finish the space off.
Ill admit I have an obsession with all things galvanized and these buckets are perfect to use as decor both outside and indoors. When I was still living in the apartment I used it as a cozy decor piece in the corner and filled it with blankets and a pillow. I will link the post HERE. In the “little white farmhouse” I decided to pair it with this antique wooden crate, some plants of course and this amazing bench that has been in my family for three generations. The best part about these sap buckets is that they come in all different sizes and start at $11!!! How can you go wrong? Make sure to check out Pine Springs Cottage to get more antique galvanized decor as well as garden decor, shelving, crates, kitchen accessories, rustic stools and so much more. Enjoy.
Hello loves, if you have been following my blog than you may have seen my previous post featuring this gorgeous distressed candle set from the Etsy shop Vintage and Restore by K. They sell some amazing shabby chic and up-cycled furniture pieces and decor and were sweet enough to chalk paint this amazing set for me. I couldn’t be more flattered and humbled!! I love the look of antique pieces that are brought back to life with a little chalk paint and distressing. The moment I received this set I knew I wanted to use it as part of my mantle decor. They make the space look so cozy and shabby chic, I love it! Although they don’t currently sell anymore candlestick sets you can find many more distressed and shabby chic pieces in the shop now, enjoy. [Read more…]
Hello loves, today’s post is so exciting because I get to post about two of my favorite decor pieces as well as two amazing shops! I have been lucky enough to work with some great stores and receive awesome farmhouse decor recently and these were two items I couldn’t wait to show you guys. Since we started dreaming about owning our own home (about 3 years ago) I knew I wanted to have a cozy little entryway. With a cute little bench and some hooks to hang your coat. So when I received these barn wood hooks from Curtis Creation I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them! I decided to style it with this rustic home sweet home sign from the Etsy shop Jester Farms and this cute little wreath. Of course I haven’t found the perfect little bench yet but I just couldn’t wait to show you guys the start of my entryway. Keep reading to learn a little more about these farmhouse shops and get these awesome pieces for yourself.
Curtis Creation is seriously one stop shopping for those farmhouse home decor addicts like myself. They sell so many different types of home decor and it’s all AMAZING. You can find anything from farmhouse trays, kitchen supplies, signs, pillows, storage, garden decor and so much more! These hooks are currently unavailable but you absolutely have to check out their shop for more farmhouse finds. And keep an eye our for more posts featuring their products, coming soon.
Jester farms is another shop that was so sweet to send me this gorgeous handmade sign. Every house needs a “home sweet home” sign, it’s the perfect welcome when I get home. I love their signs because they are handmade, great quality and have an awesome rustic wooden frame. Some are also distressed which I love!! Also, this super cute sign sells for $25! How can you go wrong? Make sure to check out their shop and fill your farmhouse with some amazing rustic signs. [Read more…]
Hello loves, I hope you guys are having a great week. I’m so excited about this post because I am featuring this awesome Eat sign from the shop Our Home 2 Yours. I may have a small dining room but I absolutely love it and I think this sign is a great focal point to the space. Their shop sells more than just handmade signs but also repurposed and refinished home decor and more, perfect for any farmhouse or rustic home! I decided to hang my eat sign but it would also look great displayed on a hutch or countertop with the letters side by side. Make sure to check out Our Home 2 Yours and get your own amazing rustic sign or decor piece for your home. Also, click the read more link for a closer look at this sign, enjoy. [Read more…]
Hello loves, I really hope you have been enjoying my new posts! I’ve put my heart and soul into this home so I hope you love it as much as I do! I had been dreaming of a bright white farmhouse living room for a long time now so I really wanted to change up the look of my coffee table. We had built a wooden one for the apartment and I really wanted something that wasn’t so dark. We got this table for FREE off craigslist and chalk painted it. And yes you read it right, there is a free section on Craigslist and I’m seriously obsessed. I wanted to find the perfect centerpiece for this amazing little table so I was jumping for joy when I received this galvanized tin platter from Cornell’s Country Store. This site is perfect for the farm girl in all of us! They sell everything from men’s, woman’s and kids clothing and shoes to home decor. This tin tray sells for only $30 which is a steal considering its amazing quality and HUGE! I decided to add some distressed candlesticks, antique books, a pitcher and a candle to complete the space. Make sure to check out their shop and give your own home farmhouse feel, enjoy.
Hello loves, long time no talk! I’m sorry about the long break but as you guys know we finally bought our first home and I’m so excited to show you guys our progress!!! It’s been three weeks and we have been busting our butts to get it done. I think part of it was my own selfish wants (blogging of course haha) and the other part was that we have been dreaming about this for so long that we just couldn’t wait to make it look how we want. And after many nights of staying up until 2am and then working 8 hours the next day I can proudly say that a good portion of the house is complete…at least the living room and kitchen. And I love it! I have been thinking about this reno since we found out we got the home and I love how it turned out. Let me tell you it was not easy, we definitely added too many projects to the list including refinishing the floors. What a nightmare but I’m so happy we did it. I wanted to give you guys a sneak peak at my living room. Especially my favorite part of the whole house, the fireplace! We still need to add some logs but it makes this space look so dream and cozy. We white washed ours to give it a farmhouse feel. Keep an eye out for a post on how I did it! Also, many more posts will be coming soon including my kitchen reno for under $300!! I really hope you guys like it, enjoy.
Hello loves, I cannot get enough of amazing farmhouse signs! Especially super unique ones like this. I was so excited when I received this package from one of my favorite Etsy shops My Vintage Farmhouse. They were sweet enough to send me two signs (the grocery one I featured last week) and this Farmer’s Market one. It’s seriously the perfect kitchen sign and could make any room look like a southern farmhouse dream. I love how it looks on my kitchen island with my 3 tier tray and I think it will look even better in my new farm kitchen. This sign comes in three sizes and range from $64.95 to $139.95. If you read my previous post about their shop than you know that they take great care of each piece they create and make a product that is amazing quality. Their signs will never peel and are waterproof! Make sure to check out My Vintage Farmhouse and give your own home that rustic or farmhouse feel. Also, use code THECHICGEEK and get 20% off your purchase, enjoy.
Hello loves, I’m not sure if I’ve ever told you guys but I’m from New England. Most people would guess that I was a southern gal from my style but you could say I’m a bit of a farmer wannabe. When I think of my ideal home I dream of open fields with acres of land, shiplap walls and antique pieces everywhere. I’m not saying I actually want to have a farm and own animals but I definitely want my home to feel like a southern oasis (minus all of the hard work) haha. And what’s a good farmhouse without the iconic “farmhouse” sign. I’m not going to lie I do already own some farmer’s market signs but I have been searching for the perfect reclaimed wood farmhouse sign for my kitchen for a while. I was so excited when I received this one from the Etsy shop Rare and Beautiful Treasures Home Decor. Of course I won’t be able to feature it in my new home for a couple of weeks but I just couldn’t wait to show you guys. I love how you can still see the notches and the character of the wood through the paint!! The best part is that it sells for $40 which is an awesome deal compared to similar signs I have seen! They also have a great collection of handmade rustic and farmhouse signs and also do custom orders. Make sure to check out their shop to add some farmhouse style to your own place, enjoy.
