How to Make Inexpensive Faux Pumpkins Look Impressively Real


Yes, you read that right.  I'm already talking about pumpkins and it's not even September.   I'm giving myself permission since the kids will be heading back to school next week, which means summer vacation is officially over.  I have mixed emotions about another school year starting, but I'm definitely ready for a new routine, cooler temps and fall activities.

Affordable Farmhouse Decor from Amazon


Signing up for Amazon Prime could quite possibly be the best and worst thing that happened to my wallet.  The incredibly fast and free shipping is awesome when I'm in a pinch (like when I dropped my camera and broke my lens), but my bank account hates that it's so easy to buy whatever I need want.

Just recently, I was searching Amazon for a few new basement pieces and kept getting side tracked by the gorgeous farmhouse decor.  Now, I wouldn't necessarily consider my style farmhouse, but I do like to mix in a few farmhouse pieces into my home.

Follow Your Dreams, Face Your Fears {Haven Recap!!!}


Whoa, I'm finally feeling back to normal after five amazing days in Atlanta, GA.

This outgoing introvert conquered all fears (don't laugh!) and set out on her own to fly to an unfamiliar city to attend Haven, a DIY and home decor blogging conference.

Those of you that know me know that flying solo to unfamiliar areas to meet people I have never met is way, WAY out of my comfort zone.   It's something I would never consider under normal circumstances, but knew it was important to prove to myself that I CAN do anything that I put my mind to.  That you must face your fears in order to chase your dreams and follow your heart.

Restored Vintage Metal Hardware Cabinet


I could not be more excited for this month's Monthly DIY Challenge and HomeRight giveaway!

We were fortunate to work with HomeRight and their awesome spray shelters to update a thrifted or previously owned item with paint.  I knew exactly what I was going to do and couldn't wait to restore my vintage metal hardware cabinet.  I used the large spray shelter, but they also carry tabletop shelters that are perfect for smaller projects.

Tips For Designing a Budget Friendly Living Room

This post is sponsored by World Market.  All opinions on pretty home accessories are my own.  For more information, visit my disclosure policy

I'm back after 5 days in Atlanta, GA attending the Haven blogging conference.  I had an amazing time connecting with other bloggers and learning a tremendous amount of information.  Once I can gather my thoughts I'll do a wrap up post, but first I want to share how it's possible to decorate an affordable space if you don't have the time to shop around from store to store.

You probably know that World Market is one of my favorite stores, so of course I jumped at the chance to share an affordable room board showcasing their new Supernatural collection.  I've linked to many World Market products in past mood boards and love that they have a wide variety of styles while staying affordable.  Unfortunately, we don't have one in our area anymore, but I was able to make time to check out the one in Atlanta last weekend.  As I was wondering around, checking everything out, I realized just how easy it is to decorate a space using items entirely from their store!

How to Turn an Old Shelf into the Perfect Farmhouse Herb Garden


Hey friends!  I have another quick "trash to treasure" makeover to share before I board a plane and head to Atlanta for a DIY and decor conference.  I'll be gone a few days and can't wait to come back and share my experience with you all.  

This summer has been crazy busy with the kids off school, vacations and afternoons at the pool.  I feel like I'm a bit behind on the basement, but I couldn't resist taking a break and jumping on board with 18 other talented bloggers for a thrifted item blog hop.

You know I LOVE hunting for treasures at yard sales, consignment shops and thrift stores.  There's no better feeling than purchasing an item for next to nothing and turning it into something completely different and amazing.
