I love grain sacks so much. I have two of them in our dining room.
I had an awkward space in our hall and wanted another grain sack to occupy the space… except I couldn’t find what I wanted. As usual, when faced with high costs or low availability, I decided to create my own.
Have you ever been to The Graphics Fairy.com? That website is an amazing treasure trove of vintage graphics and art. I’ve used it many times to decorate my home. When I visited in search of wheat/grain graphics, I found this:
I love the show Fixer Upper. I also love the super cute decor that Joanna uses to stage their homes. Have you seen the Magnolia Market website? There are so many things that I want, but I do not have a big enough bank account to buy them all.
This lovely sign is $70. I love it, but I cannot see paying that for this sign.
I did have a can of white paint, a board, and black paint.
I quickly painted my board white. I then created some letter stencils.
I traced the letters and then painted them in with black paint.
I then added hangers to the back.
I then hung the sign in my dining room. It’s not perfect but I love it! What do you all think?
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This time of year is always a busy one for teachers, so I never seem to post as many blog posts as I’d like. Today, I’d like to share some super cute farmhouse projects with you all.
You can make this one with just a stencil, some scrap wood, some paint and some wood stain. You can even freehand it if you’re more artistically talented than I am. There are so many things I want to put on a sign like this one! I can’t wait to make a few more.
I made this box from some mis-measured wood pieces from another project, and some walnut wood stain. I have used this box for Christmas, for spring, for fall, and for winter. It’s so much fun to decorate with!
I don’t know about you all, but I’m crushing on farmhouse entry ways at the moment. I’m a sucker for natural light, board and batten trim, and somewhere pretty to drop my bags and kick off my shoes. This week, I found four lovely farmhouse entry ways that spoke to me.
I love this entry way for lots of reasons. I love the shaggy rug and the wooden bench. I love those big baskets for shoes and I love the little topiary in the olive pot. The blanket and pillow make the space look inviting too.
