• Bright and Cheery Easter Table

    This year for Easter I went with a bright and cheery color scheme of coral, navy and yellow for my Easter Table. Putting together this tablescape was a little tricky since coral, navy, and yellow are not the traditional Easter colors. By pulling together some DIY projects and shopping around my home as well as some stores I was able to make this table come together just like I imagined it. First I shopped around my house and came up with my layered table runners. I used a multi colored blue and jute runner that I bought at Target a few summers back as a base and then layered my…

  • Neutral Nutcracker Tablescape

      The Nutcracker. It is a Christmas classic full of color and sparkle and Christmas magic. I decided to take a new spin on the nutcracker Christmas decorations and create a Neutral Nutcracker Tablescape with just a small touch of color and the same amount of Christmas magic.     I had a few of these neutral nutcrackers already from a few years ago and I remember thinking when I created last years Christmas tablescape how fun it would be to create a neutral nutcracker tablescape for Christmas. Last year I didn’t have enough nutcrackers and by the time I started looking there weren’t any to be found as most…

  • Apple Tablescape for Fall

    Fall is my favorite time of the year and going to the cider mills and picking apples is one of my favorite activities. This year I decided to create an apple tablescape for fall inspired by my love for all things apples. This apple tablescape is a quick and inexpensive way to decorate for fall and would be perfect for any autumn celebration!     The enamel plates match the enamel mugs on my apple cider bar. They kinda makes you feel like you are enjoying the outdoors, but without the annoying bugs to eat you alive!     I used a mixture of vintage brass candle sticks and some…

  • Apple Cider Bar

      One of my favorite fall activities is to go to the cider mill!  When I was growing up we would go to the cider mills all the time to pick apples and pumpkins. The fresh doughnuts and cider are hands down my favorite fall treat! I get so excited when fall rolls around and the cider mills open once more for the season!     Living in Minnesota there are no cider mills close to me. I mean legit cider mills where you can watch them crush the apples and make the donuts kind of place. Sure some places have a small apple orchard where they might let you…

  • Farmhouse 4th of July Decor in the Dining Room

        4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I feel like the holiday has its own energy that makes summer fun and exciting. If I could deck out the whole house in red white and blue I would. Lets be honest, I do try and decorate every room! lol I just don’t have that much patriotic decor, surprisingly. I did add a few new things to my 4th of July decor this year and I am excited to share them with you today!     My first new addition to my 4th of July decor was this runner that I made. I love the pattern of the…

  • A Coffee Bar Cart – Why did I wait so long!

      I honestly don’t know why it has taken me so long to put together a coffee bar cart! I really love having my coffee supplies, (minus the cream) all in one spot, and that it is not on my counter tops! My kitchen feels so much cleaner and less cluttered now that I have a coffee bar cart.     When my friend Nicole at Grace Filled Farmhouse posted her new coffee sign collection on Instagram and it inspired my to put together my own coffee bar. I had originally intended to keep my coffee bar on the counter but once I added the sign it just felt too…

  • The latest around here – Fireplace Remodel

      While we finished un-packing shortly after we moved into our house, we are now finally settling in to our new place. I may think I know where I want things in a new house, until I start to actually live there.  Then I tend to move things around until I find the place where they will work best. While most things stay pretty much in the same place, some things do change. One of those things was our Dining room. I had planned on putting the large dining room table that we were in the process of building in the formal dining room. Leaving us our smaller white round…

  • Weathered Walnut – A DIY Custom Made Wood Stain

    Today I will be sharing with you the custom stain that I made to use one my Side Table. I looked at Home Depot for a stain similar to the Everett table from World Market. However after looking into it, it doesn’t seem as if the table is stained, and that the color comes from the type of wood that they used.  I have not seen the table in person so I do not know for sure, but that is the conclusion that I came to.   The only thing I could do was to get a stain close to the color as possible.  I grabbed a Minwax Stain in Weathered…

  • DIY Side Table

    One of my goals for this year was to build more things for our home. I was able to make a check mark next to that goal once I completed my side table in my  Dining room makeover. I am not a builder by any means. This was my first project of this magnitude. The only other thing that I have built was my Farmhouse Signs. If you are thinking that you can’t make this table, let me tell you that you can! I have already done the work to figure out how to build it and what will work and what will not work! The inspiration for my table…

  • Dining Room Makeover

    Many of you have been waiting to see my reveal of my Dining room. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I was just waiting on the light issue to get resolved before I could take some pictures to show you the finished room. You can’t really have a room without a light in it, and a light fixture can really make or break the design of a room. The light hanging in the dining room before had to go. I mean it wasn’t horrible, but this light and I were not friends. The day that we got our keys to the house I was all about moving in. My husband…
