Hey friend, welcome! If you follow along with me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve likely seen my share my mantel design a few times ☺️ Well, today I’m going to finally share it here on the blog! Come take a look at our simple vintage Christmas mantel! [Read more…]
Hello there & welcome! Decorating my home for Christmas is one of my very favorite things! Creating a warm, cozy chic Christmas tree design was my goal this Christmas, & I feel that I accomplished just that!
I get asked a lot “do you buy all new ornaments each year?”, & the answer is no! I typically do shop after Christmas sales & may pick up some new ornaments for me to use the following Christmas, but I actually use the same ornaments year-to-year. It’s amazing how you can make your tree look different each year, even while using those same ornaments! [Read more…]
Today I wanted to give you a glimpse of our warm, chic Christmas decor so far this year! I’ve went with a very vintage, chic feel & I must say, I’m loving it so far! It’s simple, but so cozy!
In the decor world, we tend to push out holiday decor sooner than most would probably like. But, with that being said. Decorating early for Christmas truly makes me happy! I absolutely adore putting together new designs each year & enjoying them just a little bit longer than most. Everyone has their opinions about it, but decorating early has become my favorite annual tradition!
Today I wanted to share with you, my favorite fall finds from Amazon! Back when I was regularly blogging about home decor & decorating frequently, I would frequent my favorite stores weekly. Now days, I’m lucky if I make it to the grocery store. At times like that, I appreciate online shopping from places like Amazon! These are neutral pieces that are sure to fit into your farmhouse home decor perfectly!

The weather here in Ohio went from the 90’s one day, to literally the 60’s the next! A typical Ohioan would say, “welcome to Ohio”. I’m not complaining one bit about the dropping temps! I am SO ready for the crisp temps that come with the changing season. The changing of the season’s has me eager to decorate the inside of my home to cozy, romantic comfort!
One of my favorite things to do each evening is light candles! Not only for the scent, but because it creates such a relaxing atmosphere. Our living room is where we spend most of our time in the evenings, so lighting some candles on the mantel after dinner, cozying up on the couch & watching our favorite shows is something I look forward to every day! You could also say I’m pretty cheesy in the sense of, every Fall it’s time to break out our favorite annual Halloween movies! Movies like Casper, Hocus Pocus & The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown ☺️
Incorporating neutral tones is one of the simplest ways to change the decor during the season. For example, if you want to start with this neutral design, then add in some spooky details for Halloween and then simply transition into Thanksgiving decor. You can do so, so easily using these staple decor pieces!
What is your favorite way to bring Fall into your home each season? Do you have traditions that you tend to follow each year when it comes to decorating or incorporating certain pieces?
I would love to hear your remarks! Thanks so much for stopping by & shopping a little bit with me today! I hope to see you back here again soon!
I’m sure you’ve heard me say it before, but as soon as the kids head back-to-school, my heart’s already set on decorating for Fall! I know, I know… some of you may think I’m crazy & that’s ok ☺️ Don’t judge, but I’ve already had a pumpkin spice latte too! Basic.
All jokes aside, I wanted to share with you my simple, neutral early Fall mantel today! It’s a super simple introduction to what my Fall decor will be. It includes fun textures & cozy elements!

Well, hello there stranger! It has been quite awhile since I’ve been around this neck of the woods! I apologize for being so distant lately. I’m excited to get back into it & share a recent project with you. This is an antique dresser makeover!
I snagged this beat-up antique dresser, with great bones, from a Facebook Marketplace post. I think I paid about $45 for it! I love giving old antiques new life! Some of the things I look for when scouting furniture is, caster wheels, carving details, ornate features & original hardware, just to name a few!
I lucked out with this one, it has beautiful carving details, pretty legs & caster wheels! It’s no surprise that this piece was going to get painted. I opted for my favorite Miss Mustard Seed in farmhouse white. I was pretty disappointed to find out that I didn’t have enough milk paint to paint the entire piece… So, I decided to mix in equal parts of bergere. I had absolutely no clue how it was going to turn out, but it was worth a shot.
It produced the prettiest shade of blue! To say I was happy with how it turned out, was an understatement! The first coat looked very light, almost pure farmhouse white. However, the second coat produced more of the blue shade. As it dried, the color came to life! I love using milk paint, because it spastically lifts & gives the piece that aged feel. After a little light distressing, I sealed the entire piece with Miss Mustard Seed tough coat.
I was able to incorporate the original dresser hardware into this piece! I think they fit it perfectly. I did, though, get new mercury glass knobs for the top drawer to dress it up a little! I was tickled to death with how pretty this piece turned out! When the time came, we added it into our storefront & I couldn’t wait to decorate it right away. It was no surprise to me, when this piece sold at our Grand Opening event that first weekend! Our customer said she was going to use it as a tv stand. I sure hope she enjoys it as much as I did!
Thank you for stopping by & checking out my latest furniture makeover! I’ll be sharing more pieces as we make them over for shows this Summer!

Despite the cliche of Valentine’s Day, I love decorating for the widely celebrated holiday! Today I’m sharing with you the sweet additions, our simple Valentine’s mantel. I’m not sure whether it’s the bits of pink and feminine designs that make it so fun, or just the “out of the norm” for me… but I love it!
Now, by no means do I go all out for decorating for the holiday. I just enjoy adding in bits of pink and fun textures that I may not usually use. As always, I stick to my natural obsession of neutrals. Lately though, I have been intrigued by gold! Adding it into my designs gives it a more traditional tone. I know with gold, you either love it or hate it. Had you asked me awhile ago, I would of hated it. It seems to be growing on me though. How do you feel about gold?
Oh, Fall! You encompass some of my very favorite things! The textures of Fall are just so warm and wonderful. I absolutely love creating Fall tablescapes. It gives me the chance to incorporate those favorite little things of mine into something beautiful! My favorite place to do that? My formal dining room, of course! It’s the perfect spot that I can still enjoy it every day passing by, but doesn’t get disturbed. Get cozy, grab a cup of hot coffee and hang out with me while I share my farmhouse chic fall tablescape with you all!
