French Armchairs

Awhile back I bought a pair of arm chairs at a local consignment store. At the time, I didn't have a specific place for them, so they just sat in our garage. I knew I would eventually find a spot for them in our home. 

Here's what they looked like before. The gold bee fabric was reupholstered in a neutral canvas fabric that works perfect in our living room.

Have a blessed day!

DIY Magnolia Wreath

Earlier this week I shared our Fall Front Porch and Foyer all decorated for the season. 

Today I wanted to show you how to make this beautiful fall magnolia wreath. 

I love the magnolia wreaths from high end retailers, but they're a little pricey for me ($100-300 each), so I decided to make my own for a lot less at only $20! 

If you would like to make your own magnolia wreath for $20 all you'll need is a medium size wreath form, two faux magnolia leaf sprays from Hobby Lobby  
(50% off), scissors, and a hot glue gun. 

First cut all the leaves off the branches, then start gluing the leaves on the wreath all pointing in one direction around the form, then layer more leaves as you completely cover the form. It takes a little time, but the result is well worth it!
Here's my real Fall Magnolia Wreath from a few years ago. 

I hope you are now inspired to make your own wreath for the upcoming holidays. 

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Fall Front Porch & Foyer

Welcome to our home! It's hard to believe Fall is just around the corner. Over the weekend our local farmers market displayed their seasonal pumpkins and I just couldn't resist buying a few!

I stacked them with magnolia leaves on the front porch and decorated with them throughout the house. I like to mix faux and real pumpkins to add different textures and colors. 

This year I wanted a natural feel, so I incorporated white, green, and brown tones in my decor. It seems to feel more casual and calm with the lighter fall colors.

Here's last years Fall Foyer if you missed it.

Here's how I made the Magnolia Wreaths on my front door!

Pair of Chairs

This past month I found a pair of antique side chairs at an estate sale for a bargain that I just couldn't pass up. I loved the curved back and petite size of the chairs, but the dated gold fabric and tufting was the first to go. I had them reupholstered in a neutral canvas fabric and painted the tapered legs white for a fresh new look. 

Here's how they look in a home I recently staged

And here's how they looked before...

It's amazing how new fabric and a little paint brought these chairs back to life.

 What do you think of the transformation? 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!

A Fixer Upper: Before & After

I had the pleasure of working on this fun remodel project recently. This split-level
5 bedroom, 3 bath stucco home was built in the mid nineties and seriously needed an overhaul.

Starting with the exterior, we painted the pale pink color and went with fresh white paint, we added brick around the bottom of the house, changed out the wood railing to iron on the front porch, installed a new wooden door and lanterns, then completely started over with all new landscape and a back deck.  

Next, on the interior we ripped up the parquet and vinyl flooring, took down the dated wallpaper and lighting, removed old counter tops and replaced them with new granite and marble, refaced all the cabinets with new doors and paint, installed new hardwood and tile, painted the whole house a neutral color, removed the textured ceilings for smooth ceilings, added detailed trim, reworked the stairs with oak treads, added all new oil rubbed bronze hardware throughout, and then we added a beautiful new back splash in the kitchen.

Now this house is completely updated and ready to move in! I'm certain this house won't stay on the market very long.

Just a Swingin'

We've always enjoyed relaxing on our back porch as a family, even more now that we have a new back porch swing!

My sweet little one would rather be outside playing than anywhere else. 

It's been so much fun decorating this outdoor space, that's a nice extension of our house.

 Here's a post about our patio makeover from a few years ago.

Mudroom Bench

I've been on the lookout for a wooden mudroom bench with storage for my garage. I found one recently that fit the budget and was the perfect fit! After adding baskets, pillows, and accessories this little corner of my garage will be something we use daily.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Fourth of July weekend!
