Hi friends!! Today, I am so excited to share with you a new outdoor dining space that I have been working on just in time for May! The weather has been a dream the last couple of weeks here in Nashville, so we have been enjoying our new outdoor dining area every chance we get. Today, I am sharing a small peek into this space, but a full reveal of both sides of our covered porch is coming soon! I wanted to make this eating area a pretty and practical space. We LOVE entertaining for friends and family so it was so important to me to make this a welcoming space. I decided to take a little trip to HomeGoods to pick up some accessories for this space and thought it would be fun to take you along with me!!Continue Reading
I don’t know about you, but the weather here in Nashville finally feels like spring! Springtime honestly just makes me want to get outside and do some of my favorite activities. Garage sales, barn sales, and antique shows are so good this time of year. You can pretty much find me at one of these every weekend in the spring. One question I get asked all the time is where my home decor comes from? It is safe to say that about 85% of my home decor was found on a weekend pickin trip. I have so many favorite items that I have found over the years, but one that stands out is a long chippy shutter that I picked up at a barn sale. When I bought it, I honestly had no ideas what I was going to do with it. I rarely know where something is going until I get it home. This shutter was no exception. I instantly loved how much character it added to my decor.Continue Reading
So, I’m back from a small blogging break, and it felt SO good to regroup and take a little breather. Resting is always good. I feel super reenergized, and I’m back with some very exciting news. This news is something that I honestly never thought in a million years I would be blogging about. I was featured in Flea Market Home & Living! What?? When I first started my blogging journey almost 2 years ago, I knew being in a magazine was a dream. Did I honestly ever think it would actually happen? NOOOO. Guys, if you get anything from this post, I hope it is to work hard and never give up on your dreams. This is the second magazine I have been featured in and it is all because I keep persevering through the good and the bad times. Never give up pursuing your DREAMS!!Continue Reading
Did you guys see?? I finally finished my bonus room! I shared the full room reveal HERE in case you missed it last week. Since this room is pretty large, I had my hands full making over almost every inch of this room. The largest impact for sure was my bookshelf makeover. I have always been in love with the idea of lighting above a bookshelf and had a fun idea to try it on my built-ins. Luckily, I have a pretty amazing dad who helped me pull this project together, and it turned out even better than I ever could have imagined.Continue Reading

You guys!!! I’m so giddy about this post today because it means I can finally share my bonus room makeover reveal that I did with Overstock! Eeeek!! I had so much fun making over this space and turning into something that my entire family can enjoy. Before I get started with the reveal, I wanted to share with you my WHY. Why did I want to give this room a fresh look? Well, the simple answer is that this room quickly became the leftovers room. It collected all of our old furniture and accessories from our previous homes, and it was time to give this family room the attention that it deserved. After a couple months of on and off work, it is finally finished, and I can’t wait for you to see the transformation. Before I start sharing the changes, let’s start with the before. It’s always a good place to start so you can see how far this space has come!
Who’s ready for spring? We’ve almost made it through winter guys, and I’m so proud of us. We are SO close to warmer days. It has actually felt like spring here in Nashville the past few days which was so nice. It made me want to decorate all the things. The color that comes to mind this year is GREEN!Continue Reading
Are you ready for some fun spring inspo? I hope so because I am so excited to join a few friends (listed at the bottom) for a Spring Blog Hop! Welcome if you are joining me from my sweet friend Kelly’s blog The Tattered Pew. Isn’t Kelly so amazing?! I loved seeing all of her beautiful spring decor ideas! We are all so excited to be sharing some spring inspiration and tips for getting your home ready for spring. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s till freezing outside in most places. That doesn’t mean you can’t start adding some warmth inside though. Today, I thought it would be fun to share with you my mantel spring decor ideas and how I used these tips on my fireplace.Continue Reading
Happy Tuesday friends!! I am so excited to share with you a little entryway refresh just in time for March! I love March because it means spring is right around the corner. When I think of spring, I think of lighter colors, fresh and simple decor, and greens of course! I knew I wanted to change up my entryway, and I have been racking my brain how to give it a fresh look for spring. One thing that came to my mind was lighting and Kirkland’s lamps came to mind. Updated lighting can transform the feel of a space. On my latest shopping trip to there, I spotted these beautiful blue and cream ceramic lamps and knew they would be perfect for my entryway. These Kirkland’s lamps are exactly what this space needed.Continue Reading
Happy Tuesday!!! Gah, so sorry I’ve been slacking this past week. We took a little road trip last weekend, and I’ve been crazy working on a fun bonus room reveal that will be up soon. Ahhh, I can’t wait for you to see that. While on our little road trip last weekend, we stopped at Ikea which is a big deal since we don’t have one here in Nashville. I knew exactly what I was wanting and that was GREENERY! Ikea plants are so great because they make it so easy to mix and match with different pots around your house. I filled my big blue bag with a ton of plants, and I thought it would be fun to show you how I used them in my house to get ready for spring!Continue Reading
Haaapppy Wednesday!! I took a short breather from blogging, but I’m back today to share with you our kitchen eating area refresh. I realized that I haven’t shared this space with you guys since Christmas. The goal was to keep it light and airy and maybe even a little springy in here. If you saw my latest flea market finds, I decided to use this oversized vintage basket in the middle of my table with some flowy stems coming out the top. I love a basket centerpiece because it creates texture. It’s also super easy to move when we need to, so I’m loving it here for now. When deciding to redecorate a space, I always find something that helps inspire the entire space. It’s safe to say when I spotted this basket, I knew my kitchen eating area needed it. This basket centerpiece inspired the entire kitchen eating area refresh.Continue Reading
