Best Farmhouse Ceiling Lights under $100

Monday, August 14, 2017



As I have been getting ready to makeover our entryway I have been scouring the internet for a new semi-flush mount ceiling light that doesn't break the bank. So far, thrifting has not been my friend with this search so I have turned to looking for new light fixtures. In an effort to get rid of 'boob lights' everywhere, I've rounded up the best finds under $100! {Click pictures for sources}

DIY Diaper Box Storage

Friday, August 11, 2017


A few weeks ago, as I was folding up yet another diaper box to take out to the recycling bin, I thought to myself 'I wonder how I could up-cycle these boxes?'. You see, diaper boxes aren't flimsy, they are actually quite sturdy. They also happen to be a decent size to serve many different purposes. Much to my surprise (or maybe not so much), I was not the first person to have this idea. In fact, Pinterest is drowning in DBD (Diaper Box DIY). But that won't stop me! I'm joining the masses and turning an old diaper box into a functional storage bin!

Entryway Mood Board

Wednesday, August 9, 2017


'Hello! Welcome to my home!' That is what every entryway should say.... right? Well, my current entryway is not very 'welcoming'. Don't get me wrong, it's not like I have spider webs greeting guests but its just so... blah. So, I have decided to take on another challenge and give my entryway a fun makeover for under $100!

I should have titled this post, 'Third time's a charm' since this project legitimately took three tries to get it right 😁. But that's what the world of DIY is all about sometimes- try, try and try again.

IKEA Farmhouse Finds!

Wednesday, July 19, 2017


Please note that I am not sponsored in any way by Ikea. All thoughts and opinions are my own!

Not too long ago {R} and I visited Ikea on a mission for a Jute Rug. Well, anyone who has been to Ikea must know that it is nearly impossible to leave the store with just one thing (and without stopping for an ice cream cone on the way out). Since we recently went from two incomes to one we have definitely been on a tight budget so I really had to keep myself in check every time I wanted to throw something in the cart (it was hard). I did, however, make a wish list for future shopping trips. Then, I realized how fun it would be to share my favorite Ikea buys/finds with you with a twist! I've rounded up my top 20 favorite Ikea farmhouse finds!

Powder Room Reveal

Monday, July 17, 2017


It's time for some potty talk! That's right- it's powder room reveal day and I have never been so excited to spend time in a bathroom in my life 😜!

I am not sure why it took me so long to update this room because A. I have wanted to paint it since the day we moved in and B. It's a small space so there is no excuse as to why I wasn't able to find the time. Luckily, the previous owners of this home, who just so happened to build it, had great taste and chose a classic pedestal vanity and chrome light fixture that I didn't feel needed to be changed. However, I am just not a fan of the red paint on the walls. I feel like you either love red or you hate it (or maybe i'm just making stuff up). Either way, it was time to make a change! I challenged myself to makeover this room for less than $100 and I'm happy to report I was successful.

Woodland Nursery

Thursday, July 13, 2017


It is absolutely crazy how much can change in a year! My life has been turned completely upside down in the most amazing way! I think it's pretty obvious by the title of this post that {R} and I welcomed a new member to our family, a perfect baby boy named Hudson😊! I could write an entire post about how much Motherhood has changed my life in the most amazing way [and maybe I will!] but today is all about Hudson's nursery.
