    Easy Farm Table Centerpiece

    No doubt, Beauty and the Beast is my favorite movie. Belle is my favorite Disney princess because I totally relate to her nerdiness. 🤓 My brain works in strange ways. The inspiration for this farm table centerpiece actually came from the movie Beauty and the Beast.   Inspiration can come through the oddest ways in the world of Karlee. 😜 My thoughts were to gather items in a basket for a French dinner party. Combine it with a little galvanized farmhouse and “BAM” you’ve got a French farmhouse vignette. Here’s how I did it – I started with the basket. I grabbed my favorite white metal basket, which I found…

    Summer Mantel on a Budget

    The fireplace mantel is one space I love to swap up with each season – Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. It was time to add a little something for Summer. As always, I like to thrift, thrift, thrift then splurge (a little). 🤑 So, basically I thrift so I can splurge on that one special piece! Let’s get to it! Here how I styled my Summer Mantel. I layered! Months ago I found the large vintage chalkboard at a local antique store for $10. So far, I’ve used it as an extra layer for each season. For this particular style I turned it vertical. The large antique wooden frame was…

    Front Porch Decor – 4th of July

    Despite the heat, don’t you just love Summer Holidays?!? (That Alabama heat kills me sometimes.🤒) I Especially love The Fourth of July because it celebrates our wonderful country. 🇺🇸 Nearly every evening Aaron and I sit on our front porch. It’s sorta our “down time”. We truly enjoy this space but to be honest I thew this spot together on a major budget! I found the little wooden table at a thrift store for $4 and this swing at a yard sale for $15. 🤑 These two items are my anchor pieces. After setting those in place I filled in with the “little” details.   I grabbed some clay pots…

    My Colorful Ottoman

    Yes, if you’ve seen a picture of my nearly all neutral living room, you know it has a loud color in the very center. I love white but I also love the unexpected. 😉 I get many messages about my ottoman and I’m going to answer the number one question – Where did it come from? It’s actually from World Market!! I bought it from World Market about two years ago and although it’s a statement color in my white/wood tone home, I haven’t grown tired of this piece! ☺️ The color and velvety texture gives a nice pop. The style of this piece is timeless. 👌🏻 I would consider it classy/glamorous…

    Thrift Painting Makeover

    Recently, I’ve learned about another treasure you can find at thrift stores!! Beautiful paintings!! 😍 Yes, all that time and love someone invested into a painting ends up at a thrift store. 😕 Sad, but good for me, right? Helpful Hint – Look for the paintings where you can get lost in the scene. For me, this is a scene of farm land or a cozy house.☺️ If you can stare at the picture and get lost daydreaming, buy it. 👍🏻 That means you’ll love it in your home. Weeks ago, I spotted another beautiful oil painting at a thrift store for $11. It was lovely, but the wooden frame…

    Change Your Living Room on a Budget

    Don’t like your furniture? On a budget? I’ve totally been there!! Fall of 2016, I was growing tired of our red couch set. 😔 Keep in mind, this furniture was a “hand me down” from my parents, so these pieces had been around since I was 15 years old. I was needing a change but wasn’t quite ready to purchase new furniture. 🤑 I explored my options and decided to give white slipcovers a try.🤔 This decision totally changed the style of my living room! 😁 I purchased a relaxed fit slipcover on Amazon. Our furniture is an odd shape so that’s why I decided to go with a relax…

    My Weekend Find

    So, we had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. 🇺🇸 Our weekend consisted of sleeping in, eating too much, building a chicken coop 🐣 and antique shopping. Aaron and I truly enjoyed a long weekend! I spotted this old milking stool during one of our trips to the antique mall. I immediately fell in love!!😍 For the locals, I found it at Angel’s Antique in a booth called Pampered Picks from the Past. I try to always spot old chippy white pieces. 👉🏻 For instance, chippy white side tables, windows and architectural pieces. Here’s why, A- Nothing screams farmhouse style like white paint chipping off to expose wood. B- Chippy white…

    Vintage Recipes Meet Repurposed Fireplace Mantel

    I love repurposing fireplace mantels as shelves. 😍 I have several old wooden mantels throughout my home. In fact, my motto could be “here a mantel, there a mantel, everywhere a mantel”. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Haha, but honestly an old slim mantel can fit just about anywhere and add an old architectural charm. We have an antique mantel in our kitchen. (I tricked my husband into this one.. he thought I was buying it to resell until I brought it home and said, “it goes here” and pointed to specific corner in our kitchen.👆🏻😉)  This mantel is perfect for displaying my milk glass vases. However, I felt it could use a little…
