Hey friend! How are you today? I’m doing great since it’s Friday 🙂 I always look forward to the weekend! And this weekend is a special weekend for our family, it’s Easter! I love celebrating Easter! We have family coming in from Maryland to spend the holiday with us, and they will be taking my grandparents (from Greece) with them for a week before they head back to Greece. We’ve had a wonderful, memory- filled visit with them these last 7 weeks! My goal for the next year, is to save enough money to take the kids to Greece for a couple weeks! I’ve only been once when I was 12. I’m dying to go back!
Spring rolls around and I’m changing the wreath on my front door to pretty much go with my moods… Ok, you’re right, not that much 😉 But I am changing them a good bit! For well over a year now, I’ve had a Southern Living magazine clipping hanging on my fridge. Yes, I’m one of those that still clip my favorite ideas and inspiration out of a magazine and hold onto it until I’m ready to conquer the project. I’ve been doing that way before the days of Pinterest!
That little magazine clipping was of a garden pot wreath. I just loved how it looked, so I wanted to recreate it. The day has finally come, after all this time! I’m finally sharing with you my terra cotta pot wreath! [Read more…]

This was a tedious, but oh so necessary job: prepping the kitchen for paint! Do yourself the favor and tape everything off before you begin painting! It will eliminate -oopsies and extra cleanup after. We were not painting the inside of the cabinets, so we simply removed the doors and taped off the inside edges. Once the doors are removed, make sure to remove all hardware, knobs and bumpers. Degrease cabinets using a cleaner such as, goof off. Cleaning the grease off is important in the kitchen, because those grease spots can seep through paint. This is also a good time to fill any nicks or gashes with wood filler. Sand before painting.

And this week is dutch doors! They’re a farmhouse classic and I’m absolutely in love with them! When we buy a farmhouse or build, I’m hoping to sneak in a dutch door! [Read more…]
It is officially Spring and I am so excited about it! Spring to me signifies fresh, new possibilities and opportunities! Not only that, but I get in the mood to Spring clean. This is a good time to deep clean and focus on areas around my house that I may not clean as thoroughly throughout the year. Today I’m going to share with you some more of my Spring cleaning tips and some excellent options for you to get things clean and organized around the house!
I’m going to have a very small budget for updating our kitchen lighting. The reason being, is we plan to move in the next 2 years (hopefully to a farmhouse!), and I don’t want to deplete my budget on lighting. I want to keep it simple but in sync with the farmhouse style! Today I’m sharing with you 10 farmhouse kitchen lantern options that I’m picturing for my kitchen renovation! #farmhousechicblogreno.
The above options are affordable and right up the alley of what I have in mind! I love the look of the oil rubbed bronze or black lantern lighting hanging above the kitchen island. I currently have 3 mercury glass pendant lights, but they do not produce enough light. The plan is to find two smaller, 10 inch size, lanterns to hang in its place.
I’m always on the search for items that fit my style and budget! If you’re in search for something similar, I hope that this will take some of the hard work out for you! It can be a real pain sometimes, searching through all the options out there!
What do you think about the lantern pendant idea for above my island? I’m always looking for opinions, so feel free to share yours!
Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next time.
Happy Friday and welcome to Friday Favorites #7! I’m looking forward to the weekend, as I’m sure you are too! As the days pass, we’re marking things off of our kitchen renovation! I can’t wait to share details with you, so stay tuned and make sure to follow on Instagram! I’m like a little kid at Christmas throughout the process! It’s so exciting to see my visions come to life!
