Happy Fall Y’all!! 2020 Fall Home Tour

I know it isn’t quite fall yet; it won’t be fall until the 22nd. However, after the year we have had, I am into doing whatever brings me joy these days. Fall decorating brings me joy- our home is the most beautiful to me when it’s decorated for fall and Christmas. So I decided to decorate early…and I am so glad I did it.

I’m not going to show you every single room in our home, nor am I going to show you every fall decor item. Consider this our highlight reel.

Our living room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate, now that we built the fireplace. I love the orange pillows against the navy plaid chairs. We topped our mantle off with a fall garland, pumpkins, simple white candlesticks and candles, and a fall wreath from my family.

Here’s a close up of our fireplace mantle.
Fall pillows and a cozy throw on the couch, pumpkins and fall flowers on the coffee table.
Here is our side table in the living room.
Here is another view of the living room.

We also have fall pillows and a throw made from my dad’s T-shirts on our family room sofa.

A fall throw and comfy pillows make our family room cute and cozy.
The family room coffee table also includes this adorable fall vignette with a lantern, vase of fall flowers and acorns.

Our two bathrooms have these pipe shelves, and we have decorated both of them for fall.

Our kitchen, which is under renovation, has a tiny bit of fall decor as well. This pitcher belonged to my great grandmother and I bet she’d love to know I am using it.

Lastly, our dining room is particularly lovely this time of year. My favorite things in the room are this fall runner I bought last year and a set of pretty placemats my grandmother gave me.

Daisy is trying to blend in and appear part of the decor.
She is pretty enough to be decorative.
Our sidebar has a little fall treatment too.

I hope you have a blessed day, and I will see you again this Friday for a post from a special guest.

Have a wonderful day!!

Farmhouse Friday: Farmhouse Finds at Tractor Supply

Hi, all! We are glad to be back after taking two weeks off of blogging. I am having a hard time finding things to write about, since we are still largely unable to go anywhere or do much. I am planning to resume a regular blogging schedule next week.

Today I want to resume farmhouse Friday by sharing some super cute home decor items at Tractor Supply. If you have never checked out their home decor section, I highly recommend you do so!

1. RedShed Farmhouse Bench

Red Shed Farmhouse Bench, $159.99

This super cute little farmhouse bench is reasonably priced and it would look cute on your front porch or in your entry way.

2. Farmhouse yard windmill

RedShed 5 foot windmill, $79.99

I have wanted a windmill since forever!! This would look great in my side yard. I know it doesn’t really do anything but it looks really cool.

3. White barn star

RedShed White Star with Rooster Design, 39.99

These stars look so cute hanging on the wall and you can hang up a bunch of them or just a few! They have some other colors as well.

4. RedShed Green Lantern

RedShed green lantern 17.99

How cute would this look on a shelf, or maybe get three of them and put them in a wood box? These little lanterns would be so cute in so many different ways.

5.

Metal sign, $59.99

Im always a sucker for metal and wood signs and this one is very cute.

There are way more cute things to choose from! I recommend taking a trip to your local store and seeing for yourself. Thanks for reading!!!!

2020 Spring Home Tour

I debated on even posting my spring tour this year. As is the case with many of you, we are self quarantining for our own safety. Typically, I’d decorate for spring and run out and buy whatever I thought I needed to complete the home tour. This year I’ve had to get creative since we can’t pop into Hobby Lobby and grab whatever. My spring tour isn’t nearly as elaborate or well executed as usual, but because I want to be real with my readers, I’m sharing it anyway.

Welcome to our porch!!

Welcome to our front porch! Come on in- notice that pretty wreath in our door and the little round sign hanging on the right. They were both made by sweet friends at church. The planter is actually a window box from Lowe’s and it’s planted with red geraniums that haven’t bloomed yet. The door mats are from Urban Outfitters and the Welcome sign was a Hobby Lobby find.

Our foyer

This sofa table sits inside our front door. We kept it simple with this spring vignette.

Eggs, a nest and rabbits. Doesn’t get much more spring like than that.
Our spring living room.

Our fireplace mantle is simple and spring like with potted moss topiaries and white wooden candlesticks. I added a boxwood wreath and another nest. The coffee table got a small vignette as well.

A closer look at the mantle. I need to unearth some candles but I cannot find them.

Next, we have this simple table centerpiece in our dining room and this scale and nest on our sideboard.

And lastly, our two bathrooms got a little spring treatment on the shelves.

Our hall bath- lavender sprigs on the shelf and a boxwood ball.

Well, I hope you enjoyed our spring home tour, even if it is a bit subpar this year. Have a wonderful week, and we will see you again Saturday for a really cool kids’ craft.

Make a Fixer Upper Inspired Typography Sign

You all know by now how much I love signs with words and quotes. I also love Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper. I love the episode where she created this super cute atrium.

Source: HGTV

I loved everything about that cute little atrium, but I especially loved that cute “herboriste” sign. I tried in vain to find one but then decided to create my own.

I dig into my scrap lumber and found the perfect board.

I decided it needed a border so I taped it off with painters tape.

I cut out the word “herboriste” and placed it where I wanted it.

I busted out my old standby, a can of spray paint in one of my favorite colors.

I went to work painting the boards and removed the cut out letters, then traced the letters and filled them in with black paint.

I absolutely love how it turned out.

I think it makes a great addition to our patio.

What projects have you completed recently?

DIY Reclaimed Wood Coatrack

I needed a spot to hang towels and robes in my children’s bathroom. I had a perfectly good blank wall, but I knew I wanted to do something prettier than just install hooks on the wall.

I already had some adorable shabby chic hooks from a recent Hobby Lobby sale.

And I found a piece of wood that was the perfect size for the space. It had a beautiful patina but my daughter requested I paint it.

I tried so hard to get her to change her mind but she just wouldn’t budge. I consulted my craft cabinet and found my green chalk paint.

Best. Stuff. Ever.

I then slathered my reclaimed wood plank with two coats of green chalk paint.

Until I ended up with this:

I then screwed my hooks into the now painted plank. I tried to space them equally.

I then attached wall hangers to the back of it and hung it on the wall.

And here it is, holding up those robes just like I wanted it to.

What shabby chic project have you done lately?
