  • A Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Mantel

I had this idea last year of an all green vintage book display for the mantel. I thought it would be a cute way to tie in St. Patrick’s day to my farmhouse decorating style. The only problem was last year I had only two or three vintage green books. So anytime that I was out thrifting I would keep an eye out for vintage green hard covered books. I have collected just enough to put together this farmhouse St. Patrick’s day mantel decor. I tried finding an…

    This post is sponsored by DecoArt. Last week I was inspired by my friend Katie @BakerNest on Instagram and her beautiful barn quilt art. I decided to try my hand at making one so I grabbed a small scrap piece of wood and tried it out. I love it so much that I wanted to make a larger piece to hang on my wall for my spring decor. I chose the space above my DIY side table for my new DIY art. The only problem is that barn quilts are square patterns, and a square wasn’t going to work for that space. So my barn quilt wall art became a…

This paper heart garland is a quick cheap DIY Valentines day craft that will add a touch of Valentines cuteness to any spot in your home! I didn’t put up my paper heart garland up right away this year because I wasn’t sure where to use it. So I kept it tucked away in my Valentines Day decor bin to be pulled out when I found a place for it. Then of course I misplaced the bin! I seriously…
