It’s All About The Fall Vibes-Fall Home Tour 2019

Hey y’all! Come on in! Yes, it’s still in the upper 90’s here but that hasn’t stopped this gal from decorating my home for fall! After you’ve seen my fall home tour, you’re in for a treat because I am linking up with a few other bloggers this week that are also inviting you into their homes to see their fall décor!

Welcome to our home! Pull up a chair and I’ll fix you a cup of warm apple cider, but we will leave the air conditioning on. This year, I based all of my color scheme on my pumpkin patch sign! I wanted warm fall tones! My Pumpkin Patch Sign was made by my husband and I, last year and it also doubles as a Christmas sign on the back side. The frames behind the Pumpkin Patch sign are some frames I have had from over the years and I just chalk painted them! I added green eucalyptus and warm fall tones of birch sprays, both from Hobby Lobby. They were purchased when 50% off! The two chairs were purchased from Amazon, a couple years ago. I think they were $50 each. The pillows are from my sectional. The blanket was purchased from TJ Maxx, this year for $15. The pumpkins are a mix of real and faux from Trader Joe’s and Hobby Lobby. The planters I have had for 15 plus years. I spray painted them back in the spring to refresh them! I bought the mums for under $5 at Wal-Mart.

Our farmhouse style tv cabinet was designed & built by my husband and I. The wheat grass wreath above was made by me. I purchased the grapevine wreath at a local thrift store for a couple dollars. I bought all the wheat grass from Hobby Lobby and Micheal’s, all for 50% off. If you happen to live near wheat grass fields, you could ask the farmer for any scraps and you could basically make yours for free! My wreath is quite large and cost around $60 to make. Still much cheaper than you can buy in the store for the size that I needed! Warm fall toned birch sprays are from Hobby Lobby for under $10 for 4 sets.

I am loving the warm fall vibes this year! Can you tell? For my tablescape, I chose to use my dough bowl that my husband made from a salvaged log that he found on the side of the road! Again, I used warm fall toned birch leaves & pumpkins from Hobby Lobby. I also added a couple acorn sprays that I cut and made into several sprays from just one! They were $1.49 from Hobby Lobby this year. I also used my Leaf Plates from Pottery Barn, White Linen Salad Plates from the Pioneer Woman Collection & the crystal glasses were from my Mother. You can read all about my fall tablescape and links on where to purchase here.

Our farmhouse dining room table & light fixture was designed and built by my husband and I. I also made the drop cloth curtains. Super cheap to make at $16 for both curtain panels. My rug is from my fav rug company, Well Woven Rugs.

In our recently renovated kitchen (under $500), blog coming soon, I made a fall floral arrangement. I bought the crock from an estate sale for $5 and used the fall birch sprays and other greenery, plus pumpkins, that I already had on hand. All from Hobby Lobby. You can read all about how I styled the fall floral arrangement here .

I decided it would be fun to style my youngest two daughters kitchen set for fall as well! What a fun morning we had with an impromptu tea party at 7:45 am! I used all the same goodies from Hobby Lobby! Drop Cloth curtains were made by me for three sets, it was around $9.00!

I also decorated my white chalk painted piano with those fall birch leaves and pumpkins! I really do love the color vibe they give off in my home!!

0CBA296F-5762-4870-8A6C-472A63EFABD1

I even added a few pumpkins in our master bedroom along with those acorn sprays & amber jar bottles. The amber jar bottles were purchased from Whole Foods for a few dollars. I also added a funny letter board. Lamp is from Hobby Lobby at 50% and it was $43.

49E0119A-3FB3-4FBB-8F6D-4C05B560296C

I even added a few touches of fall to our half bath. Of course I added the warm fall toned birch sprays, along with a few fabric pumpkins that I made! You can see how I made my fabric pumpkins, all for under $10 here. The green market sign was purchased from Target’s Dollar section at half off for just fifty cents! The amber bottles & antique books were purchased from an estate sale and my fav local antique shop for a few dollars. The mirror and shelves were also designed and built by my husband and I. We also recently renovated our half bath and all for just under $200. You can read that post here .

4C5B590F-0B85-4C9A-A1F3-DC9F44582D86

I added the same pumpkins, birch sprays & acorn sprays to my smaller dough bowl. The fresh soap bathroom sign was designed and built by my husband and I.

Lastly is my outdoor tablescape. We love eating outside when the weather is cooler! We are finally expecting cooler temps here next week! It is so nice to sit outside and enjoy a meal with our family!

It’s All About The Fall Vibes: Fall Home Tour 2019

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Today I am joined by several of my friends, that happen to be bloggers as well, to share our Thanksgiving Tablescape’s with y’all! I would also like to thank our host Terrie, from Decorate & More with Tip. Rules: To decorate our table for Thanksgiving and one item needed to be a DIY! As I always say, challenge accepted!

I have had this idea in my head to make my own charges from a tree log, except I had to find a log that would be large enough for chargers. This moment unexpectedly presented itself when we had a storm pass through in our neighborhood, back in August. We have a 75 plus year old willow oak tree in our front yard. The wind had whipped up quite intensely and I actually thought the tree was falling on top of our house, but two of the larger limbs broke off from the tree and fell to the ground.

5AFDAF7F-23AA-4391-8996-D9D58A07F1DC

After the storm was over, one of my first thoughts was that we could make several chargers from one of the limbs.

C9FCA79B-2B1B-4A14-AA84-800DF33E1317

The very next day, the first item on my husband’s agenda, without us even talking about it, was cutting eight chargers for our dining room table! My husband used his chainsaw to cut the chargers right off the fallen limb and voila, we had chargers!

0040CCF1-DAA1-4686-8A8A-37BAFDC40E3E

This is from the top of our front porch. The limbs completely knocked down the power lines in the road as well. We also had a small amount of damage.

5008DCCD-0763-4EE0-8694-6A29CCAB073D

I have been letting the wood dry out in my basement before sealing. Wood usually needs to dry out for 3-4 months. I am planning to seal each charger with a clear coat to protect the wood for years to come!

DCA61F3D-3528-4E2E-BA78-C19F54753D58

For the items on my Thanksgiving Tablescape, I began each place setting with the chargers that we made, along with a Pioneer Woman White Linen Salad Plate and a Pottery Barn Leaf Harvest Salad Plate. Pottery Barn is not carrying the Leaf Plates any longer, but I did find them here . I was able to find my Pottery Barn plates at a church rummage sale for $1.50 each and they were brand new! The crystal glasses were handed down to me from my Mother. I also used real cinderella pumpkins and faux pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and Trader Joe’s . The orange, yellow & green sprays are also from Hobby Lobby. I purchased four that I cut up and have used throughout my home for this year’s fall décor. I love the muted tones in the birch sprays! I also grabbed several brown acorn & berry picks from Hobby Lobby. I have used those all over my home as well in my fall décor. The brass candlesticks are from my fav local antique shop and local thrift store! I paid $2-$6 for each one. Farmhouse table, light fixture, wood cutting boards, curtains and Pumpkin Patch sign are all made by my husband and I.

I hope y’all have enjoyed this easy diy and budget friendly Thanksgiving Tablescape! It does not need to cost an arm and a leg to decorate your home beautifully! Please stop by and visit each of my friend’s to see their Thanksgiving Tablescape!

Vintage DIY Chenille Pillows

Vintage DIY Chenille Pillows

Hey y’all! It’s time for our monthly Thrift Store Challenge and I’ve teamed up with several of my blogging friends today! 💃🏽 The rules: We each need to find an item from a thrift store, yard sale, estate sale, antique store…you get the idea! We need to take the item and basically make it our own, plus style the item in our home! Challenge accepted!!

I decided to go straight back to that white vintage chenille blanket that I found at a church rummage sale for $2.50. Remember the blog post I did on the handmade chenille pumpkins? Just in case you did not see it, click  here to see the post.

779D07B2-075F-4981-B123-671E00562A02

I have been wanting to make a few vintage chenille pillows for our master bedroom and this challenge was perfect for that! Since I already had this blanket and the poly-fil, this practically cost me zero dollars for this challenge!!

I love how there is a few spots on the chenille blanket that has been mended over the years. I can tell the blanket was hand-sewn and I can’t help but wonder how that tear must have gotten there…but I love the character it gives!

6F337F23-85E4-4F55-B0CD-73F945D527E2.jpeg

First thing was deciding what size I wanted the pillows to be! To be honest, I just held the fabric up to my pillow shams and decided I wanted them about half of the size (give or take) of the shams. After deciding on the size, I cut my first pillow template from the vintage chenille blanket. I cut two pieces per pillow.

90E6157F-3214-46F1-9FBF-D6F755125984

I chose to leave the fringe on one pillow, to dress it up a bit more!

6DCE3571-B7B2-478B-B92A-ED342E4A43D0

Place right sides of fabric together, pin or not pin, if you prefer. The one below is the fringe pillow, so if you chose to use fringe, make sure to tuck it inside!

71417C79-7FE3-4E05-B45A-33FDA0E90860

Sew all sides, leaving enough room on one edge open, so you can flip your pillow inside out, then stuff with poly-fil!

30551EE0-108D-45A1-A180-2D6ECF07ED52

Wallah! You have an easy vintage chenille pillow! I made a total of 3 and I love the one with the fringe best of all!

I hope you will hop on over and visit my friends to see what they have found on their search for our Monthly Thrift Store Challenge!

Kitchen Essentials with Rod Works

Kitchen Essentials with Rod Works

Hey friends! I always like to have total transparency! This blog post includes an affiliate link and we collaborated with Rod Works on both of these canister sets. My opinions are always my own and I would never share anything with y’all that I don’t truly love. Thank you for your support friends!

Hey y’all!! My name is Shae. My husband and I like to say we are a powerhouse when it comes to our DIY’S for our home and in between raising our four daughters, being an Instagram Influencer, I brought in my blog this past January! We share anything from home décor styling, DIY budget friendly renovations, recipes, and more!

Have you wanted to update your kitchen on a budget with products that don’t break the bank? The hubs and I recently updated our kitchen with concrete countertops, a white subway back splash, a white farmhouse sink and white chalk painted cabinets.

83DF0688-0CFD-4950-9842-09C69C7996B6

After the renovations were completed, (it took about 3 weeks) I began searching for décor to complete our kitchen renovation. I knew I wanted a whites and woods type of pallet. My husband made the wood cutting boards that you can find in this post from a large 75 year old tree that had fallen onto our property. I found various baskets from thrift shops and a few that I had in my décor closet. I also added touches of greenery and a couple signs that we had previously made. I felt like this one counter space was missing something and couldn’t quite place my finger on it. When I found these canister sets from Rod Works , I knew it was the perfect kitchen essential for my countertop! The Coffee/Tea canister set can be found here and the Flour/Sugar canister set can be found here .

00FFA39F-CB9B-4470-985A-5EACD02C4D0C

The canisters are ceramic with a slight gloss finish and a seal to insure freshness! I have had them in my kitchen for the past couple of weeks now and I love how all of the items I use on a daily basis are right at my fingertips! They are practical, convenient, free up space in your pantry and are budget friendly! Please check out my friends over at Rod Works for all of your home décor needs!

Thank you for stopping by today!

DIY Fall Wood Sign from Scrap Wood

DIY Fall Wood Sign from Scrap Wood

Hey ya’ll! I was invited to team up with several talented ladies for a challenge this month that is hosted by Terrie from Decorate and More with Tip . The challenge rules were to take a piece of wood and make anything fall décor related. I knew the perfect piece of scrap wood that we had leftover from the tv accent wall. This wood is 100 plus years old and just stunning!

94D87E74-C92A-426C-86B0-182F5A999F7F

I have been wanting a cute wood picket fence type fall sign for awhile, so when Terrie invited me on this challenge, I knew I had the perfect piece for the project! I gathered all of my painting supplies and got to work!

9C5F4EBE-A566-400A-875E-22B2C7A6DA08

I used craft paints and small brushes from Hobby Lobby that I already had on hand.

32482F15-8B59-4314-A6DC-5F410543B4FE

I also lightened the colors I had with Ibis White that I had on hand from Sherwin Williams. I accented everything in black to bring out all the pumkins cute-ness. I also highlighted with white.

5229C4D5-FA75-4EE9-A9C1-6503BE9B7464

I am so blessed that God has given me the ability to paint! When our oldest two daughters were younger, I painted canvases to make extra money, along with wall murals.

I hope you enjoy our blog hop! Check out my friends too! They have amazing talent!

Some of Life’s Greatest Treasures

Some of Life’s Greatest Treasures

I think when a Grandparent gives you something they value, it is one of the most greatest treasures in life! The picture above is my husband’s Paw-Paw & Big Grandma. I believe they were dating in this pic, soon to be married! Aren’t they a stunning couple! I think back on the time that I knew Big Grandma (never met his Paw-Paw because he passed before we married) and I think she had a good life with lots of family surrounding her. That was one thing about her is that she loved her family and she loved helping anyone when they needed help!  Right around mine and my husband’s first anniversary, we had our first daughter and anytime Big Grandma came to visit, she would always bring diapers! She knew how expensive those things were and babies are expensive! It was like she just knew when we always needed something and that’s just how she was! I remember the first time she had a stroke and I really thought we would loose her. I was so scared that when I spoke with her on the phone, I started crying and told her how much I loved her. We had her for many more years before she passed. I will never forget telling her that we would be naming our 4th daughter after her….her eyes just sparkled and she said “Really?” I told her “Yes!” and boy was she proud! It wasn’t long after that, just two months, before she passed away. She never got to meet our little Jewell but I know she is looking down and smiling at our rainbow baby!

23FD3852-D021-48CE-963F-E45828783CB6

This antique milking stool was my husband’s Big Grandma’s.  He said she didn’t have many possessions as a child, but I wonder if this stool served as many purpose’s, in her childhood and as she grew up. I have explained in my last blog that we acquired a antique key from her home, when we were cleaning it out, as we were getting ready to renovate it. The stool was also an item that we picked out that day because Big Grandma wanted us to have it. Our oldest two daughter’s were small at the time so we decided the stool would make a great “time out” stool or we could use it to stand on, when we couldn’t reach things in the pantry! We’ve had it in our home for at least 15 years now and I love thinking back to that day, when we came home with all of our treasure’s from Big G’s house.

Here’s a little throw back pic of our two youngest daughter’s on their first trip to Disney World!

April Thrift Store Challenge

April Thrift Store Challenge

767EF71D-C053-4BE8-83AE-F3618849E161

I have teamed up with several blogger buddies for a April Thrift Store Challenge. Our rules were that we could purchase one to two items from one thrift store, to keep it as budget friendly as possible, then style in our homes. Challenge accepted! Actually, most items in my picture is from past thrift store purchases, estate sales, yard sales or on sale! I love a good bargain!

I decided to stop by one of our local thrift stores on my way home one day. I enjoy shopping at thrift stores because you never know what you will stumble upon! I went to the furniture section, in the back, looking for a couple of chairs or a antique chaise lounge that I could deconstruct. I have been wanting to deconstruct a couple pieces of furniture for our master bedroom. As I was thinking that I wasn’t going to find anything for my challenge today, I spotted it! The antique wood gable vent louver!! (I call it a gable and the hubs calls it a louver.) I already loved the color of the wood and I had an idea of where to style it in our home. I originally thought I would place this above our kitchen window but no cigar! It was to big! My next thought was to set it on top of our mantel. Eh! I wasn’t feeling it! I decided to set it on the bottom of the mantel and I started playing around with some lavender and terra cotta pots. I loved the look that I was beginning to achieve! I styled my tiered tray, added my diy chalk painted farmhouse books, our diy candlesticks and I loved how my spring chalkboard peeks out of the picture! Best of all, I only paid $1.99 for the gable vent!!

I hope that you will hop on over to each of my friend’s, as they show us, what they found on their thrift store challenge!

Love~Shae
