Vintage Boho Inspired Vintage Booth

A vintage booth inspired by MCM, vintage, industrial and boho styles! 

I've been taking a bit of an unexpected blog break, but wanted to pop in real quick to share a little vintage booth inspiration.  Most of you know that I have a booth at Sweet Clover Barn where I sell furniture and vintage decor. 

Painting furniture, hunting for cool vintage decor and styling are passions of mine and this booth allows me to share that passion with others.  This month, I changed things up a bit and mixed natural wood, cool tones and loads of texture for the perfect vintage boho vibe.

The Best Budget-Friendly Storage Baskets, Crates and Bins

The best budget-friendly storage baskets, crates and bins! 

Happy New Year! 

It's the week after Christmas and getting organized is probably high on your priority list.  If you're anything like me, you're probably feeling the urge to purge old items and sort through new toys and presents, trying to get everything neat and organized.   

Thankfully, in January, stores traditionally offer big discounts on everything related to storage, allowing you to get organized and stay on budget.

Dollar Store DIY: Vintage Inspired Brass Bells

A budget-friendly way to create easy DIY vintage-inspired brass bells!

I'm about three weeks behind sharing December's Dollar Store DIY, but who's counting?  A late project is better than no project, right? 

Last month, I updated basic dollar Tree ornaments and this month, I was inspired to create budget-friendly, vintage brass bells.  Vintage bells have been one of my favorite holiday items to hunt for, so creating a DIY version seemed like the perfect Dollar Tree project.

Christmas may be in a few days, but these DIY brass bells are perfect all winter long!

White and Wood Mid-Century Modern Dresser Makeover

A vintage Bassett dresser gets a two-tone makeover with white paint and black modern edge pulls. 

A couple months ago, while scrolling Facebook Marketplace, I came across a nice walnut MCM Bassett dresser.  I've refinished, altered, painted and repaired many different styles of furniture, but I'm definitely partial to mid-century modern dressers. 

This particular vintage Bassett dresser was in great condition and checked off all my boxes of what I looked for when buying used furniture.

December is almost halfway over, which means many of you are probably done Christmas decorating.  For those still decorating, like myself, I wanted to share a few helpful tips for saving money on holiday decor.  

It's easy to blow your budget and get carried away on Christmas decor, but with a little planning and creativity, you can create a beautifully decorated holiday home for less.

I've been updating, hacking and transforming Dollar Tree products for years.  Everything from storage to home and holiday decor.  As much as I love transforming basic Dollar Tree products, updating their Christmas and holiday inventory is by far my favorite. 

I've updated so many Dollar Tree items in the past, that I gathered 8 of my favorite Christmas makeovers so you can find them easily in one place!

The renovations in the living room and entry are FINISHED and now it's time to deck the halls for the holidays! How about a little entryway Christmas tour?

In the past, I've created Christmas gallery walls in our entry loaded with lots of red Christmas decor. This year, I decided to keep things neutral and decorate with cool neutral tones and touches of vintage brass.
