Simple Fall Home Tour

Hi friends! I am so excited to share my simple, fall home tour with you! I have teamed up with some amazing bloggers and friends for a blog tour of all of our fall homes. There are links to all of them at the bottom of this post. Be sure to check them all out for some beautiful fall inspiration!

We recently built this coat rack in our entry and I couldn't wait to decorate it for fall! I mainly used cozy items like the striped blanket and scarf in fall colors to give it that fall feel.

These pumpkins here are made out of tree bark! How cool is that?!

I came across this chair on a local antique stores page and knew instantly that I had to have it! I went the next day and it was, luckily, still there. 

It instantly adds the cozy fall feeling into this space.

As many other bloggers, I love using amber bottles to my home for fall. The way the light hits it through the window is beautiful!

I changed up my curtains in my living room to some darker ones for the fall and winter months. I love the new contrast in here! 

 I have this gallery wall in my living room and added these bats to the antique circle frames. I found the frame at a garage sale for .50 cents! I simply sketched the bats and colored them in with a sharpie. I love this simple, cheap way to add some seasonal decor to my home!

I don't add much to my kitchen. Some small amber bottles and a couple faux corn stalks and that's about it!

Years ago, I found these primitive brooms at a garage sale and knew they would be perfect for fall decorating. I have had them in different spots over the years but this year I added them to my shutters in my dining room and I love how it turned out! 

Thanks for visiting my home for fall! Be sure to check out my fellow bloggers homes below!

Lighting under $150

How many of you feel like you would love to update your space but don't quite have the budget? I do for sure! The truth is there are many options out there to give your home and updated look without breaking the bank. Something as easy as switching out your dining room chandelier can instantly give it that updated look you've been wanting. I have rounded up eight chandeliers (above) in many different design styles that are under $150 that could be used in your dining room for instance. (some are even under $100!) I also came up with a list of lights that could be used in an entry, kitchen island, and flush mount lighting for those spaces that need a flush clearance. (see below)

  1. 6-light Bronze Chandelier
  2. Globe Electric Elena 5-light Brushed Brass Chandelier
  3. MoDRN Mid-Century Matte Black Rod Iron Chandelier 
  4. Better Homes and Gardens 5-light Wood and Metal Chandelier
  5. Kira Home 5-Light White Linen Drum Shade 
  6. Elegant Lighting Sputnik Chandelier  
  7. Vintage Style Chandelier with Beads
  8. CHLOE Lighting Industrial Style 5-light Rubbed Bronze

    I am actually looking for a new entry light for myself. Below are several semi-flush mount options in different styles and sizes that are very affordable. Most under $50!

    1. Globe Electric Harrow 1-light Matte Black Semi-flush Mount Ceiling Light 
    2. Regency Hill Schoolhouse Ceiling Light  
    3. Possini Euro Design Modern Ceiling Light
    4. Michael Milk Glass 3-light Semi-Flush Mount  
    5. Better Homes and Gardens Semi-flush Mount Modern Farmhouse
    6. Regency Hill Semi-flush Mount Matte Black and Gold  
    7. Michael Milk Glass 1 light Semi-flush Mount

    Last but not least...pendant lighting! Great for over your island or sink in the kitchen. I've rounded up several including the one I have in my kitchen. Of course, all at a great price!

    1. Cal lighting Webster Rust Finish Pendant Light
    2. Rabia Trellis Pendant in Gold
    3. Newhouse Lighting Rustic Vintage Edison Style 1-light Pendant 
    4. LEONLIGHT Industrial Hanging Pendant 
    5. CASAMOTION Mini Pendant Light Handblown Rustic 
    6. Kira Home Belle 9'' Contemporary Industrial 1-light Pendant

Christmas Mantle Ideas

Welcome! I'm  super excited to be joining in on the Christmas Festival Blog Hop. If you're coming from City Girl Meets Farmboy, welcome and thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out Anderson + Grant next! Also, a big thank you to Kendra at Joy in Our Home for hosting! 

There's no holiday I love decorating more than for Christmas! Besides the tree, Christmas mantles are my jam! We have a very rustic fire place so I try and decorate accordingly with items that will stand out. I love antique mirrors so I started with layering them in the back. I think mantles are all about layering and stacking when you can!

I have this little antique frame with an old family photo in it that stays on my mantle year round. I added this garland spanning across one side of my mantle and draped it down the side. I also had some extra large pinecones I added in a couple spots. I love adding antlers in when I can as well!

I love adding old books everywhere in the house. they are a great way to add height when needed. These old candlesticks I found at a flea market last year for $1 each! If you don't want color from the books simply turn them around like I did here to keep it neutral.

I usually have my stockings on one holder per stocking but this year I really love them all gathered together to the side on two heavy stocking holders. I found these wood letters at Target and the white and red, pom pom stockings at Walmart. I love classic red and white!

Here are some other Christmas mantles I have done in past years for some ideas!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out all the creative ideas from fellow bloggers below! Have a Merry Christmas!

Master Bedroom Makeover | Final Reveal

It's reveal week!!! Man oh man...I will have to admit I struggled with this bedroom transformation. From planning, painting, and decorating in between my daughters sports, I barely made it to the finish line. BUT..I did it! As always if you're not familiar with the One Room Challenge, it's a biannual design challenge that lasts 6 weeks with the final reveal being on the final week. Be sure to head over to the One Room Challenge website to see all the designers reveals! There are some amazing ones!

Okay, let's start with a few before pictures in case you missed week one.


Alright, those are pretty ugly. Can we all agree?! Haha. Now the fun part, the reveal!

The biggest thing we did to transform the space is we used these wood planks from My Timber Wall. They make the room feel so much more cozy and bigger actually. We used "Magnolia White" from the Vintage Collection.

I had these bird prints in a different room of our house and decided to move them to here. They worked well with the colors of the room.

I found this couch from a local church sale for $25! I plan to maybe recover it in the future but I'm loving it as is for now.

I painted that old wooden dresser with white paint and used card catalog hardware for an updated look.

I am obsessed with our new bedding. The blue quilt is from the Better Homes and Gardens collection at Walmart. The duvet cover is from Ballard Designs.

I found these lamps from Target and I love them for our room. They are touch making it easy when we need to get up with the baby in the night. 

I shared all about this light switch on my week 4 post and I can't say enough great things about it! We are installing them in every room now. They are programmable so that they turn off when exiting a room. If you have kids...these are a must!! They are from Legrand and can be found HERE.

Needless to say, our 3rd daughter loves the couch! Big thank you to Linda @ Calling it Home Blog for putting on the One Room Challenge. It's such a fun experience every time. Also, thank you to my sponsors listed below!
