On Sunday morning this week I had a few quiet moments while I was drinking my coffee & I decided to create some art with some scrap wood I had. I made a project with an old barn door recently [more … [Continue reading...]

DIY Small Hallway Gallery Wall


We have this small hallway on our lower level {I say lower level because our house is an odd layout with 4 levels. More on that later} This hallway is right off of our lower level living room that leads to the basement, bathroom, & office. The hallway has barely any wall space & no room for anything significant like furniture, but I was not … [Continue reading...]

Our 4th Baby


As I sit here writing this it honestly doesn't feel real. It all happened so fast that I forget in this busy season of life that we just suffered this tragic loss recently. Let me take you back to two months ago right before Thanksgiving & to a few weeks before we moved to Michigan. I was shopping in TJ Maxx & I got a huge dizzy spell. Odd. … [Continue reading...]

H&M Home Decor Haul – January 2015


Not going to lie, putting 2015 in the title of this post had me second guessing what year it really was. Doesn't it just look strange? Well, it's no secret that I love H&M home decor. The style couldn't be more "me", it's affordable, & great quality. I do a few hauls a year from there because when I go to buy one thing, a few more things … [Continue reading...]

DIY Valentines Day Garland


It's really funny. Valentines day is one of those holidays that I don't always decorate for. It's one of those holidays that I have to be really inspired to even acknowledge with my home decor & this year I was inspired! What inspired me you ask? Target. The answer is always Target isn't it? I was walking through Target the other day & … [Continue reading...]

New Farmhouse Table & Dining Room – The “Before”


I'm not sure if I ever said it here on the blog, but ever since we moved into our Michigan house almost two months ago we have been on the hunt for a dining room table. We couldn't use our amazing farmhouse table from our last two houses because this dining room is so small that we use that table in a different room in our house that will be on the … [Continue reading...]

New Curtains & Some DIY No-Sew Curtains


What?! I'm actually giving a Michigan house update? Yesterday I shared our DIY bathroom cabinet & today I'm sharing a few curtains that we have hung up in the house before. Why not more curtains than these? Because most of our windows are sitting there naked & curtain-less & sad. We did manage to hang some curtains up on the first level … [Continue reading...]

The Best Staircase Gallery Walls


My brain has been spinning with new ideas for our Michigan home. Of course I have been busy with our  new booth & life in general. Anyways... we still don't have stair nose on our stairs, but I am already thinking of gallery walls for two sets of stairs in our home. There are actually three stairwells in our home, but one leads to our basement … [Continue reading...]

A Cozy Gray Chair Makeover


Do you ever get an urge to use a certain paint color? Like you are sitting on the couch & all of the sudden you are like, "I have to paint something gray RIGHT NOW or I might go crazy?!" Crap, is that just me? I know I'm not the only one. Well, the other night the mood struck to paint something gray & I had the most perfect little chair … [Continue reading...]

New Year… New Booth!


Happy New Year... again. Ok, I've said it enough here on the blog & I'm done now for those of you getting annoyed of hearing it, but I'm excited {and slightly scared} of all the changes happening right away in 2015. One exciting change that has happened this past week is we moved to a new booth inside Painted Farm Girl here in Michigan. Some of … [Continue reading...]

DIY Antique Window Sign


I was sitting in our garage recently just creating some new things when I came across a big "oops" I had made when we were leaving our home in North Carolina. I had dropped a window on the ground & glass & the frame of the window shattered everywhere. Of course, me being a hoarder, I kept the shattered wooden window frame knowing that I … [Continue reading...]

As I'm writing this it's 11 at night & I got the case of the sickies. You may remember me saying I was sick the day before Christmas even on Instagram? Well... it never really went away. I kept feeling like something wasn't right & I was super nauseous & couldn't eat a thing, but I figured I was getting better. Nope. A whole lot of … [Continue reading...]
