Affordable Farmhouse Lighting for Every Room in the House

Last week, I went shopping with my husband for some affordable lights for our house. Shopping with my husband. Four words that should never be uttered together in the same sentence. 🙂

Black and White Farmhouse Kitchen Update

    I decided last week that we absolutely positively needed a new kitchen table. Not only did we need it, we needed it before Thanksgiving. My poor husband.  As soon as I said that, he knew any plans of relaxing over the weekend had just flown out the window. Let’s take a little walk down kitchen table memory lane, and you’ll see why he’s starting to hate the words “kitchen table.”

Weekending | Room Reset and a Rusty Pitchfork

This week has been a Longgggg one. Seriously. My teenage son got his first real job, which is a huge “hip hurray,” but he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet.  So you know what that means?

Guest House Refresh Because Company Is Coming

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc., and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone. #BigLotsHome#CollectiveBias I freak out a little when I  have a house guest coming. Actually, I freak out a lot. I know they come to see us, and not our house, but I want our guests to feel welcome, be comfortable, and not wish they had booked a hotel room instead of staying with us. 🙂 My oldest son’s girlfriend is arriving for a visit {Read More}

Decorating on a Budget for Fall in the Farmhouse Entryway

Decorating on a budget can be tough.  We want our homes to look cozy and inviting – especially in the fall, but money doesn’t grow on trees, does it? It doesn’t help that store shelves are filled with pretty seasonal decor, and everywhere you turn you hear about “must have” decor and “fall essentials”. Very few of us “must have” anything more than we already own, and we are blessed with all the essentials we really need. I admit that {Read More}

House Numbers Sign Hanging Planter

When you live in the country, giving someone directions to your house can be tricky. There aren’t many landmarks to look for, unless you count fields of corn or barns. So my directions usually sound something like this… “Turn at the 5-way, go past three fields of corn on your left and two fields of soybeans on your right. When you spot the water town in the distance, turn left.” See the problem?

Cafe Lights in the Guest Room

When your kids are babies, life is all about cute little outfits, decorating the nursery, and getting photos to mark their 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th month moments, and nobody really warns you about what may be coming in the days ahead, do they?

Pegboard Kitchen Command Center Organizer

Last month I wrote a guest post for My Repurposed Life, showing my kitchen wall that I added a pegboard to.  For that post, I styled the pegboard as a kitchen organizer.  As much as I love it, I have other spots in my kitchen for the tools, but I use this area as a small home office nook, so what I really need is a kind of command center – a place to hang a calendar, and keep pens, notepads, and other things I {Read More}

Remodeled Entryway Reveal! {with Video}

Today’s my birthday, and what better way to celebrate than by showing you our remodeled entryway!       Can I get a Yahoo?! It took 4 months from start to finish, which isn’t excessively long as remodels go, but it felt like forever, which is always the case when you are remodeling any room. I’ve got lots of photos to share but I also put together a fun little video that shows the 4 month remodel process condensed into about 2 minutes.  It {Read More}

The Song that Never Ends

  Remember the song that never ends? Well, the remodel in my entryway goes something like that. This is the remodel that never ends, yes, it goes on and on my friends. A couple   started doing it not knowing what they does (hey, I needed it to rhyme!) but they’ll continue remodeling forever just because, This is the remodel that never ends…. You get the idea right? So, when we last left off, all the pallet wood walls  had been installed and {Read More}
