Rustic Dining RoomAfter multiple failed painting attempts (and a lesson in how fabulous paint samples are), I finally figured out how to get the rustic dining room of my dreams. After starting with a gold, deep brown, and modern patterned dining room that just felt super dark, I was finally inspired by a 49 cent curtain panel from Kohl's. Throw in some burlap canvases made from tea towels, a handmade centerpiece from my hubby, and the rest is history.

Farmhouse Front RoomAfter finishing the dining room, I just felt like our front room didn't flow with the rest of the first floor vibes. I liked the gallery wall and cheap, unique decor, but it just felt dark, especially with all of the black and red. Solution? Some paint, new thrifty decor, and channeling a few Fixer Upper vibes! Here are the results!
Next on the List: A Nursery!The room that we plan to use for the nursery is already a pale blue, which should be fine no matter what gender our baby turns out to be (and personally, I'd like to do kind of a one and done gender neutral-ish nursery anyways). I've already started pinning lots of fun ideas on my Pinterest board, and I'll share a post soon with lots of my favorites!
It's safe to say that our fourth year will be my favorite year ever, as we bring a new little life into this home and life we've built together. I'll have to chill out a bit with how clean and tidy I like the house to be, but it will be worth it. This home is a blessing, and we are so grateful for all the memories, life, laughter, and friends who fill it with us. Year three, you've been a joy. From our house to yours, happy fall!
