Christmas Shine 7

Seasons Greetings!  

The lazy days of summer are gone and the holiday season is upon us!  This time of year always seems to fly by so quickly. Sometimes, I have to remind myself to not to get so wrapped up in the little details that I forget to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us! 

I hope our Christmas products remind you to slow down and enjoy the wonder of the season.

Merry be your Christmas
Peaceful be your home
Joyful be your family
Blessed be each one

Little Red Truck

Update your holiday decor with our aged red metal truck.   This truck is a throwback to days of old when families would drive to cut down the perfect Christmas tree to haul home.  Our truck is hauling pine, with red berries and tied with a jute bow.

From Country to Farmhouse....what a difference a coat paint can make! 1

Good morning! It's been a long time since I have sat down to write about my favorite thing, farmhouse decor. I love to create but I don't always find the time to blog about it.   I'm constantly adding new decor to my home or rearranging but today I wanted to tell you about my most recent big project.      First I want to give you a little before and after teaser...who doesn't love anticipation?!


This was my dining room:  

I liked it but a change was needed.   My boys are teenagers now so I had time for a large project!   Packing up and taking everything down was a project in itself!   Phew!   It was time to channel my inner HGTV Goddess!   

I decided the wall color was the first thing to change, lighten up a bit.  Off to Sherwin Williams to find the perfect greige paint color!   Did you know there are about 1000 shades of greige?!  I had done my homework on Pinterest and choose between Agreeable Gray and Anew Gray. I decided to go with Agreeable Gray as it has slightly more of a taupe/brown feel and Anew has a gray/brown tone.   Agreeable felt the most "farmhouse" to me.

While my husband was painting away I was planning in my head where to put things and what new accessories to buy!   I hit Overstock for curtains and Target for a hanging produce scale clock that I had been eyeing for a while.  

I love to collaborate with friends to get a project done!  Christi at Three Little Birds painted the hutch.   While Christi was painting the hutch I painted the dining table legs and washstand using Amy Howard Ballet White chalk paint.  

Once the walls were painted, and the furniture was back the fun began!   I filled the hutch with my white dish collection, some is Ironstone and other pieces I have collected throughout the years as thrift store finds!  I love a good thrift shop!!  I hung tobacco baskets, cotton decor, and a boxwood wreath.   

And now for the full grand reveal!   What do you think?  I'm in love!

Do you have a room in need of a makeover?  Tell me about it in the comments!
