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.

I’m so happy to get back into the blogging swing after a very hectic end of summer for our little family. I’m even happier to be back with some amazing bloggers to show y’all more ways we incorporate vintage items in our homes. This time its all about small storage solutions – crocks, crates, baskets, even trays and tins. Anything that you can use to wrangle items and do it prettily.
One of the things I love about using vintage items is the history they carry. I’m lucky enough to have several family heirlooms so I know their history by heart. I feel like I’m honoring the memories of those who loved these items by using them. Even if its in a different way than they were originally intended.
I’m so excited to be linking up with some talented bloggers to show y’all how we all use vintage pieces with modern decor in our homes!
From an early age, I can remember having a love for old things. Old houses, old doors, old furniture, you name it. I can mostly thank my parents for that. We always had vintage pieces around our house. So it was only natural that when I had my own home to decorate, I gravitated towards mixing vintage pieces with modern decor.

Hello, friends! Today I thought I’d share with y’all the super easy DIY patriotic banner I put together for our fireplace. Its honestly so simple that I wasn’t sure about sharing it, but hopefully it’ll inspire you or give you an idea to use in your own home. Total cost for this project was $6 and you just cannot beat that!
We seem to take room makeovers slowly over here. And…I tend to change my mind a lot and come up with new projects to add, so things are never totally “done.” This tiny little entry is ready for the fork to be stuck in it though.
Lets go back to the beginning, shall we?
The night we got our keys, we couldn’t even open the door completely because the previous owners left so much stuff in the house. The walls were painted the same dark burgundy that was in the living room. The hallway was so ridiculously narrow that I couldn’t even stretch out both arms while standing in it.Continue Reading
Form and function. Two things that I have been looking to unite in my life and home. Now that I am well past the college stage and well into the married with a kid stage, I’ve been itching to update a lot of the items we use every single day. As I slowly weed through household items to prettify, I’ve been trying to do the same with my own personal items (I’m eyeing you cheap Old Navy flip-flops that offer no lower back support!).
