Hello there friends! I’m back with the second installment of our Harry Potter Halloween home series. Did you miss my first post?! No worries! You can see our Harry Potter fireplace here. Today, I’m sharing our dining room decked out like a Potions classroom!
If you know me well, you know I love Harry Potter. So when it came to decorating our home for Halloween, I knew a Harry Potter theme was the way to go!
I went the lazy girl route and focused on a few areas of our house, mainly repurposing and reusing things we already had on hand. I also wanted it to still be Halloween-y and not over the top cheesy so less was really more. First up is our fireplace and builtin bookshelves.
Hey, y’all! Today, I am so excited to be teaming up with more awesome ladies to bring you some Fall inspiration for your home. We are focusing on Fall tables today, which is one of my favorite things to decorate in our house. Be sure to check out the other 9 bloggers’ tablescape posts which are linked at the end of my post!
While I love the neutral Fall decor trend as much as the next girl, something about rich warm colors, lots of layered textures and natural element just scream “Autumn” too me. These were the things that I focused on while creating my own Fall tablescape.
Its no secret that I love old things.
I have wanted a vintage typewriter for several years now. I’ve found a few here and there at antique stores, but none were a price I was willing to pay. Fast forward to earlier this month when I snagged this beauty in its original case for $12. TWELVE DOLLARS PEOPLE! I was freaking out a little bit.
Once again, I’m back with some of my vintage lovin’ blogging friends to show how we incorporate vintage pieces into our homes. If you missed my past posts on using vintage pieces in a modern home and vintage storage solutions, be sure to check them out, too. This time we are focused on vintage books, and I am so excited to show y’all how I include old books in my decor.
I DIY a lot. For home decor, for house projects, basically everything. I’d say my DIYs go exactly as planned maybe 2% of the time. The other 98% something invariably goes wrong, looks different from what I had in my head, or takes about 173,986 more steps than I planned. Your classic DIY fail, if you will. Its similar to the Pinterest fail, but not always a Pinterest fail. Y’all with me? The most valuable lesson I’ve learned in my DIY/home renovation journey, though, is to embrace plan B… and C… and D all the way on down to Z.
So here is my latest DIY fail and the plan B that saved it!
A few weeks ago I found a
struggling plain wreath base at Goodwill for $2. I didn’t have a specific plan for it, but at that price, I couldn’t pass it up. Fast forward to last weekend when I got the itch for a new Fall wreath in our dining room and snagged some Fall greenery at JoAnn’s on major sale. While I love it for the season we are going into, I think it will transition well into Spring and Summer. Major win, especially since the whole thing cost me $11 total!
Hello lovely friends! I’m here today to share the tablescape I came up with to transition our dining room from Summer to Fall. I often find that decorating during the transitional periods between seasons is the most challenging. Do I go with summer-y things? Is it too early for pumpkins? I think I’ve found a nice middle ground to honor the last few days of Summer and slowly greet the cool crispness of Fall.
