Hello loves, happy hump day!! Which means we are more than half way through the week WOOT WOOT. I’m not going to lie I love featuring products in our kitchen because it’s one of my favorite spaces in our home. We definitely put the most work and love into our little farmhouse kitchen and I love sharing beautiful pieces on our diy concrete countertops. And today I’m so excited to feature this amazing glass cloche from the shop Teigen Design. It can obviously be used as decor but I think it looks perfect styled on a counter top filled with some delicious homemade cookies. But of course I’m not much of a baker and the moment we finally got a minute on sunshine this weekend I had nothing in the house!! So sad! So I just stuck this beauty in this space and called it a day. But you better believe I will actually put an apron on and whip something up this weekend. But until then here it is, and it looks amazing either way. And if your obsessing over this cloche like I am than you have to head over to their site. They sell all things Farmhouse from wreaths and lanterns to tiered trays and everything in between. Click here to fill your home with their awesome goodies, and use code LAUNCHSALE for 15% off your pre order sale. You can thank me later 🙂
Hello loves, as a pretty new home owner I never realized how much lighting can change a space. When we bought our home in May it was clear that the previous owners were going for a cabin in the woods kind of look. I mean their fixtures actually had cutouts of moose and pine trees on them. Needless to say I was not a fan and it had to go. But as first time home buyers in our mid twenties we did not have the money to purchase new lighting so I got creative and found an antique chandelier on Craigslist to fill the space for the meantime. But recently I have been so lucky to have the opportunity to work with some amazing shops to fill our house with the perfect shabby chic farmhouse chandeliers. One of them being Gracefully Restored. I have been eyeing their distressed wood pendant for a while now so I wanted jumping for joy when I received their happy mail. And although it’s not the exact lighting fixture I’m featuring today I will be sharing the beauty styled in my dining space over the weekend. But in the meantime I just couldn’t wait to share the newest addition to their collection, the Hollis chandelier. This gorgeous light is made out of hand cut wood and is the perfect light gray chippy addition to any space. If you are in the market for some unique and gorgeous lighting than look no further. Head over and check out Gracefully Restored for yourself! You can thank me later.
Hello loves, I have a super exciting post for you guys today. Not only am I featuring something I have had my eye on forever but I’m also featuring one of my favorite shops for the second time!! I shared an amazing rotating chalkboard from Rosewood Home Market back in December and they were so sweet to send me these chippy corbel bookends that I have been drooling over forever. In the spring we will be building a built in for our loft space so these beauties will look perfect styled on those shelves but for now they add a gorgeous touch to our farmhouse bedroom shelving. They have an online shop coming soon but if you live in Louisiana make sure to check out their amazing shop in the meantime!! They sell all things farmhouse as well as furniture and they even offer interior decorating services. So make sure to check out their amazing shop, you can thank me later.
Hello loves, happy Saturday! Unfortunately I had to work today but typically I like to spend the majority of my weekend in our bedroom. I wouldn’t say it’s because I’m lazy…I just really love this space 🙂 And I especially love these shelves. Partially because they were the perfect addition to this space and partially because I have so much fun changing up the decor. I recently added this amazing wooden heart from the Etsy shop Rustic Occasions. You know I’m all about all things wooden (or white) so I’m absolutely loving how this beauty looks styled on these shelves. I also love that this piece is perfect for Valentine’s Day but also works all year long. And right now they sell the sweetest reclaimed wood bunnies that would look so cute styled for Easter! So make sure to head over to their shop and fill your home with their gorgeous creations, you can thank me later.

This post was sponsored by World Market. Hello loves, happy St. Patricks Day! It’s a little ironic that I am posting about Easter on another holiday but since it’s fast approaching I wanted to share the perfect Easter basket idea for those farmhouse lovers out there. Now, I know this is not the typical basket filled with stuffed animals and colorful candies but i thought I would share something a little out of the ordinary. Especially since it’s become a tradition for me and my best friend to exchange baskets you know mine is always farmhouse themed. So I put together some amazing pieces from one of my favorite stores, World Market. They sell so many farmhouse and rustic goodies as well as food, jewelry, furniture and much more. I would consider their site one stop shopping because you can find EVERYTHING to put together the perfect basket no matter what style your going for. I love visiting my local store in Natick, Ma because I can always find what I’m looking for. Click here to find a store near you. To check out my dream Easter basket click the links above, and make sure to head over to World Market and add some farmhouse style to your home! You can thank me later.
Hello loves, It’s pretty ironic that I’m featuring spring decor when we got more than a foot of snow here in New England. I’m hoping that the bright and fresh spring accents will bring the warmer weather soon. Spring and summer are definitely my two favorite seasons so naturally I love the decor that that comes with them. And when it comes to spring, flowers are a must! So when I saw this gorgeous “fresh flower market” sign from the Etsy shop Rustic Wild Arrow I knew I had to have it. I still want to change up this corner a little but this beauty is here to stay. She also sells the most adorable fresh cut flowers sign and even some perfect pieces for Easter. Make sure to head over and get your own sweet sign just in time for spring, you can thank me later.
Hello loves, happy Saturday! I’m so excited to share a little project we have been working on. Our farmhouse dining nook (at least that’s what I like to call it). Ever since my boyfriend and I started looking at homes we always thought it would be awesome to have a corner table. So after some serious daydreaming last weekend we came up with this easy and inexpensive DIY. And the only thing we had to build was this wooden bench. We decided to make it fit perfectly between the wall and the fridge so we cut a 2×5 pine board for the top. We then cut the lip for the front the same length as the top piece. And I found these amazing legs as well as the rest of the wood at Lowes. Finally, we screwed this beauty together and finished it off with some stain, chalk paint and distressing. Then we simply fit our DIY bench into the corner and I styled it with some cozy pillows and fun spring decor. I’m really loving all the greenery in our centerpiece!! And I’m super excited because I have the perfect chippy chandelier that will be the perfect shabby chic touch to this space. I’m so happy with our little DIY nook and the fact that it made this space look so much bigger. Keep an eye out for the completed space, coming soon.
Hello loves, let’s talk a little about gallery walls today. I have always had a thing for collages ever since my first apartment. So when we purchased our home I knew I wanted to create a giant one going down our stairs. At first it started with some mismatched frames and evolved over time but recently I decided to add some bigger pieces as well as more antiques. And I’m in love! I not only added my favorite antique window but also this gorgeous arched window frame and gather sign from the Etsy shop Feather and Birch. I have been eying these beauties for a while now so when I received this happy mail I was literally jumping for joy. Especially this arched window because it would look perfect styled on a mantle or any tabletop. They also sell some amazing wood cut signs, window frames, hand painted signs, unfinished pieces and much more. So head over to their Etsy shop and fill your home with their beautiful creations, you can thank me later.
Hello loves, happy Sunday. I hope everyone had an amazing weekend 🙂 If you couldn’t already tell my weekends have been crazy busy, filled with projects galore. I don’t know if I caught a second wind after taking more than a six month break from major projects but all of a sudden I became determined to finish our home. And when your working with a tight budget it always takes some time and lots of DIYs. We recently made some major changes to our farmhouse bedroom so I couldn’t help but change things up in the master bath. Although this space is farrrr from finished these stunning mason jar lights from The Lamp Goods add the perfect farmhouse touch. They also sell some seriously gorgeous mason jar chandeliers, ceiling lights and sconces. As well as different types of glass, milk glass and industrial lighting. This particular beauty comes with both three and four lights and comes in antique black, rubbed bronze and nickel. The best part is that it’s less than $200, how can you go wrong? Now I just need to add some shiplap walls, find the perfect antique vanity and some gorgeous rustic mirrors then our bathrrom will be complete!! If your on the hunt for the perfect farmhouse lighting fixture for your home make sure to check out The Lamp Goods, you can thank me later.
Ahhh I’m seriously sooo excited to share this post with you guys. I have been talking about this DIY mantle for over a month now and I could not wait to share this beauty with you guys. I know it may seem weird to build your own “antique” mantle but I have been eyeing vintage pieces for years now but they are crazy expensive. And as a girl on a budget you know I’ve been stalking Craigslist, but unfortunately I had no luck. Then one day we went to check out a mantle I found for $100 and as soon as my boyfriend saw it he turns to me and says, “why don’t we just build one”. And I was sold! We are lucky that he can collect wood at work so we gathered seven pine boards and got to work. We used a 2×6 for the mantle and cut it 40″ long. We then used a 1×8 for underneath the mantle and cut it 36″ long. Then for the the legs we used two 1x6s and cut them 30″ long. And finally we used four 1x4s and cut two on them 38″ and two of them 30″ to box in the legs of the mantle (You can change the dimensions to whatever size fits your space the best). After we screwed this baby together we used our hand sander to smooth down any rough egdes. Then comes the fun part, I stained the entire thing in briarsmoke from Varathane and then chalk painted and distressed to finish it off. I’m still looking to add some more character, I’m thinking some corbels under the mantle but I love how it looks so far. To add a cozy feel we cut a piece of plywood to the size of the fireplace and painted it black. We then found a birch tree in our back yard and cut slices with our table saw. After letting them dry for a few days I used wood glue to attach them to the plywood and let that dry overnight. To add the perfect finishing touch I used a glue gun to attach some moss I found at Michaels. Then we secured this piece inside and wallah, the perfect and inexpensive DIY fireplace. It will add the perfect cozy feel to any space, enjoy.
