Rustic Fall Farmhouse Steps

I was one of those people this year that when I saw the first leaf on a tree change I headed to my local farm stand & loaded up carts full of pumpkins. Even though it was 90 degrees out, my little booty was the one picking out pumpkins while everyone else was still going […]

Simple & Rustic Fall Mantel

I was walking through the dining room today & realized I hadn’t shared our fall mantel on the blog with you guys yet. It is such a simple piece that we kind of just set in this dining room of ours so I kind of just forgot about it. I did “fall it up” a […]

Thankful Sign

  As I was thinking about our fall decor this year in our fixer upper farmhouse I really wanted to incorporate work from my creative friends. You may have seen the beautiful pumpkin painting that my friend Holly did [here] for our sunroom which I adore. Then I was at our shop the other day & […]

A Lesson From A Bowl Of Pears

This week I got a dose of perspective from a bowl of pears. A simple silly bowl of pears that taught me a valuable lesson that I’m so grateful for. You see I went to bed the other night dreaming up a tablescape [I blogged it here] with the pumpkins that I had picked up […]

Happy Fall – Rustic Pumpkin & Pear Farmhouse Table

Today is the official first day of fall. I know I’ve been hearing a lot of people talk about how fall is every girls favorite season & it’s kind of a joke, but I don’t just love fall, I cry at the thought of it ending. I think it’s the hope & the promise that […]

Simple & Neutral Fall Farmhouse Dining Room

The one room in our home that is the farthest along in our farmhouse renovation is our dining room. It honestly is just a big room of hope. Every other room is in an unfinished state which is really putting a cramp on my fall decorating. But of course I love renovating our farmhouse more […]

The Chandeliers Are Hung!

Something that I have been dreaming of since before we even knew about this house came to life this week. I have dreamed of having three chandeliers hanging above our dining room table for the longest time now. What a silly dream right? It’s just something that I never thought I would be able to […]

A ladder & Some Corbels

I have some fun and unique updates to share with you today in our farmhouse dining room. Things have been moving a little more slower in our renovation process the past two weeks with work, summer fun, school, jobs, & more, but we have been working behind the scenes on a few fun things. One […]

Cozy Farmhouse Fall Sunroom

Living in a fixer upper is an adventure. & with every adventure there is the the good, the weird, & the weirder. One weird thing I am just now discovering is the strangeness of wanting to decorate for the upcoming seasons like fall & Christmas, but then you realize no room in your home is […]

How To Decorate With White Pumpkins

Hi guys & happy Monday!! I have been getting a lot of comments lately saying how fall is for “tons of color” & not for neutrals. In my very very very humble opinion, I think fall is beautiful in vibrant colors & soft neutrals. Personally I love both, but today I wanted to share with […]

Fall Chicken Feeder Centerpiece

This week I was blessed by so many gifts from talented friends that I decided to make a centerpiece in our sunroom with all of the lovely gifts grouped together. I am usually really early at decorating for fall.. I’m talking August, but this year it has been so hard for me to even think […]

New Farmhouse Dining Chairs

I have a really exciting thing to share with you today. Why is it exciting? Simply because I was amazed by this & thought you would be as well. Ok, so this past weekend I got introduced to & no, this post is not sponsored, but I would NEVER have thought that I could […]

DIY Flower Pot Chair

Happy September!! I  have not in the least bit started decorating for fall yet. I’m not that ahead of the game I promise. But I couldn’t resist some mums while I was at Home Depot the other day. & naturally when I got home I had to find a place to put the mums on […]

DIY Basket Coffee Table

Like many blog posts before this idea came to me while wandering through Target with my cherry coke. The other day I went into the home decor section & on one of the end caps there were two of the most beautiful round baskets. You know when you didn’t know you needed something until you […]

The Front Living Room Is Painted… Kind of.

You guys.. I’m sorry, but I’m going to keep preaching on the power of paint. No, not just white paint like we have been using, but just paint in general. Holy cow it can transform any space in seconds! There were parts of this farmhouse that I thought could never be brighter without adding larger […]

Front Living Room – Trim is Primed!

Today’s update from White Cottage Farm is super quick & well… not the prettiest. The farmhouse is an absolute war zone right now.. floors are papered, windows taped up, paint buckets & ladders everywhere, & there isn’t one spot that doesn’t have a mess going on. But guess what? I’ve dreamed of this day for […]
