    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…

    DIY Window Mantel

    I was needing a quick easy decor idea for the mantel in my bedroom. Honestly, I envisioned an old metal fence gate above this mantel but each gate I found was over $200. 👎🏻 So, I came up with this window idea a few Saturdays ago. It’s easy and not much money! I found three windows all in one day. ☝🏻 I think I spent $25 for all three. 🤑 This idea could work on any fireplace mantel and any level decorator can TOTALLY handle it! 👍🏻 All you’ll need is three different sized windows. First – Center the largest window.   Second – Grab the medium sized window and…

    I Might be Crazy

    Open shelving.. It’s another debate. 🤔 Unlike my shiplap debate, (which you can read about here) I knew exactly where I stood on the topic of open shelves. Again, this was one of those ideas my sweet husband thought I was CRAY CRAY.. and maybe I am. (That’s another topic for another day) 🤗 🙃 I love the look, concept and just about everything else about open shelves in the kitchen.😉 Now that I’ve lived with open shelves for a few months, I feel I can talk about it a bit! Order The rhythm of my heart beats “organization, organization, organization” but I’m not always good at being organized. (Or maybe…

    Broke and Needing a Headboard

    The beginning of my relationship with Aaron happened quick. Between a 4 month span we had some very exciting events happen in our life –  engagement, purchased our first house and got married. What this translates to –  we bought (well, mainly he bought) an engagement ring (which he did a killer job designing😏 😍), a home (which was completely broken😩), wedding bands and wedding expenses. Keep in mind, when we bought our home the power among many other things did not work. Did I mention vines were overtaking the entire structure?!?! 😭 Well, we closed on the house, our wedding day had passed and my sweet farmhouse felt empty.…

    Shiplap, Yea or Nah?

    I’ve heard both sides of the argument. Yea or Nah on shiplap? I’ll be honest, during our deciding process I totally lost sleep over it. I’m an over thinker and analyze everything. EVERYTHING. Some people claim shiplap is the new 1970’s paneling and refused to take part in the shenanigans. Others feel shiplap is completely overrated. Joanna Gaines, you’ve caused quite the debate! After researching both sides, studying pictures of people who have it and losing sleep, I finally made a decision. Yea. I like shiplap. Here’s why! Texture I’m all about adding an extra layer of texture to a room. Welp, shiplap definitely brings a neutral texture to any…
