Striped Farmhouse Tray

Some of my favorite projects come out of my basement. My basement full of the most random things that I think I’ll for sure need one day. Which I most likely will. Or maybe not. You just never know, so might as well just hold on to them for the right timing!  I do the same thing with wood. Scrap wood, barn wood, archetectual pieces, so on and so on. There was this round wood piece that I picked up from our local hardware store once that I know I could turn into a project, and I finally did with this DIY Striped Farmhouse Tray! Continue Reading

The Tale of the Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

I’m not going to sugarcoat it. I am a plant killer. I have a black thumb like no other. But you may have already known that by now, since I like to brag about it. Instead I am a huge lover of the artificial plant group, and I’m not even slightly ashamed. But you know who surprisingly is like the plant whisperer in our home? My husband. He can turn any half dead plant into a thriving beauty, and yes I am completely jealous of his skills! Then again, the biggest part of keeping a plant alive is having to water it, and I just tend to always forget that step. Continue Reading

Life Lately Vol. 1

Life, it really gets in the way sometimes doesn’t it!? Here I am at nearly eleven o’clock on a Sunday night, watching House of Cards on Netflix, finally finding the time to sit and write a blog post. My blogging has been inconsistent, which is funny because my word of the year was consistency (whomp whomp, major fail).

And let’s maybe continue to do this Life Lately chat every now and again shall we? Good! Continue Reading

Five Simple Ways to Improve Your Curb Appeal

Beautiful slipcovered farmhouse style sofa and armchairs from Ikea!
Room Update

New Living Room Furniture

Finally. A new, beautiful sofa and a couple armchairs. I’ve been waiting a while to replace our living room furniture, and we finally pulled the trigger. I loved my old couch so so so much, but it just didn’t fit the look I was going for in our space anymore. I am super picky about couches. I think it’s mostly the fabric that I don’t love on most of them. I wanted something light, but not that would get dirty quickly, so slipcovered couches were the route we decided to take, and I am so pleased with the ones we chose! Continue Reading
