Farmhouse Friday: Favorite farmhouse lightning 

It’s no secret this girl loves her some farmhouses. I don’t own a farmhouse but I do enjoy decorating my house to look like one. We’re in the process of replacing some of the builder grade lights in our home so I’m constantly shopping for ideas and prices. 

This week, I uncovered these farmhouse lights and I’m loving them!!


This pendant light is made from a sifter, and it’s $89 at Lamps Plus.


This Barn light is indoor/outdoor and is $49.99, also at Lamps Plus.


I found this picture of these galvanized pendants on Better Homes and Gardens Style Spotters, but I couldn’t find the original source. Here’s a similar light fixture at River bend Home for $94.99.

How about this schoolhouse light for $49.99 from Lamps Plus? 


And lastly, this pretty pendant from Overstock.com for $76.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Farmhouse Friday: decorating with salvaged doors


I don’t know about you, but I love old house doors. My Pinterest boards are filled with repurposed door projects. I’m actually on the search for an old door right now so I can do this:

         Headboard from old door
And an old screen door for our pantry.


           Down to Earth Style Blog
I thought today I could show you some of my favorite old door ideas from around the web.

Farmhouse Friday 

Farmhouse decor is extremely popular right now, and it’s admittedly my favorite type of decor. I love the simplicity of it and the fact that it never goes out of style. Today I’d like to talk to you about one of my favorite trends in farmhouse decor: ladders.

Ladders are fairly cheap and easy to DIY

                     AnaWhite.com

But, if you’re not a DIY-er, you can buy this one at World Market:


Ladders can be used in many different ways.


The Cottage Market

Here’s a horizontal ladder used as a trinket shelf. 


Rustic Crafts and Chic Decor
How about a stepladder end table?


Tidbits and Twine
How about a ladder used to frame a gallery wall?

Shanty2Chic
There are many ways to decorate with ladders in your home. How have you used ladders in your decor?

Farmhouse Friday: Front porches

In today’s farmhouse Friday, I’d like to talk about a farmhouse tradition: the front porch. Front porches are for rocking chairs and porch swings, good conversation and cold glasses of iced tea. Though our current house doesn’t have a real front porch, our back porch serves the purpose. Below is a round up of my favorite farmhouse front porches from Pinterest. Let’s admire them together!


Finding Home Farms

How perfect is this porch? I love everything about it, but I especially love that furniture. The house color scheme is pretty perfect, too.

The Little Hermitage
I didn’t just pin this one for the porch; I loved the yard as well. It’s about as perfect as you can get! That sidewalk. The porch furniture. The porch itself! 


House Beautiful
I love those rocking chairs and big ferns! So lovely!


Farmhouse Made
Oh, man! The double lanterns, the green door, that antique screen door, the ladder…can someone put this exact porch on MY house?

I hope you’ve enjoyed this edition of Farmhouse Friday. Have a great weekend!

Farmhouse Friday: Mudroom 

There are many things about my home that I love, but there is one thing I wish we had: a mudroom. Here is a round up of some particularly lovely farmhouse mudrooms.


                         (source)

Is this perfect or what? Those lockers! Those baskets! Galvanized metal! It makes me giddy because it’s so perfect.


                          (Source)

I’m loving the shiplap and the slate floors, along with the warm tones of the wood bench. This mudroom seems small but still very spacious. 


                          (Source)

How about this one? Brick floor and a lot of natural light WITH that light fixture? I’ll take it!


Talking of natural light: check out this beauty. This is more of a laundry room than a mudroom but I had to share it for the black door and windows, the shiplap, the wood floor AND the jute rug. Such beauty!

I hope you have enjoyed today’s FARMHOUSE FRIDAY. Have a wonderful weekend.

Farmhouse Friday: the Target Dollar Spot


I went into Target last week with my mom and girls because I wanted a waffle iron. The Dollar Spot, which is enticingly placed right inside the entrance, drew my attention, as it often does.

Side note: the Dollar Spot is particularly awesome this time of year because of the “college dorm room organizing stuff.” I graduated college more than a decade ago, but I’d buy some of those awesome things for my house now.

The Dollar Spot also had an array of farmhouse/ farmer’s market themed items, which I noticed immediately. Keep in mind everything in the Dollar Spot is $1, $3, or $5. Here are just a few of the things I found.


Tea towels, $3

Also, do you see those honeycomb vases to the left? Cute!! 


Tote bag, $3


Hanging sign. Can’t remember if this was $3 or $5, but I think it was $3.


Glass food storage containers with wooden lids, various sizes, $3 and $5

These were adorable! I almost bought them.


Wood-like tray, $5

I did buy this one! 

Decorative sign, $3

Cute recipe book with cards and dividers, $3

“Wood-like” crate, $3

There are other things as well that spoke to me. If you’re into organizing or farmhouse style, go check out the Target Dollar Spot!

Farmhouse Friday

What better things to show on Farmhouse Fridays than, well…farmhouses?

I went on a Pinterest scavenger hunt and I turned up these lovely farmhouses. The best news? They’re all for sale! Look away and enjoy!


1. Russell County, VA: $4.3 million

What a gorgeous home! I was drawn to this home because my ancestors are from Russell County. Plus, it’s a lovely house. Just check out this description:

Situated on 331 acres of rolling farmland. The house, built in 1919, is prominently situated on a hill overlooking the creek valley and is a highly visible landmark. The dwelling is a tall two-story Colonial Revival-style mansion with Flemish-bond brick veneer. The building has a temple-fronted center bay. The roof is covered with green-glazed terra cotta tiles, and there are three large interior brick chimneys. The slightly protruding central bay incorporates the first floor entry and a small second story balcony. There is a one story wraparound porch with Ionic columns and ceramic tile flooring.

Doesn’t that sound amazing? Click here to check out the link for yourself.

2. Republic, OH


This lovely house in Ohio can be yours for $529,000.

Here’s the description:

The Greek Revival style is timeless, and so is this spectacular, circa 1833 farmhouse situated on 22.9 acres. It’s chock full of historic detail, and retains its original plasterwork, hardware, doors and poplar flooring. Known as “Golden Pond,” the property includes a 1,200-vine vineyard and a 150-year-old English threshing horse barn.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these beautiful farmhouses! Have a wonderful Friday!

Farmhouse Friday: Farmhouse Kitchens

Every Friday, I like to share something farmhouse related . Sometimes I share farmhouse decor at local stores, but sometimes I share farmhouse rooms from Pinterest. This week I’d like to show you some farmhouse kitchens I’ve been crushing on.


            Source: Tidbits and Twine

I love the simple beauty of this kitchen. From the white cabinets to the neutral colors, this kitchen is warm, cozy and inviting. It has a lot of high end elements, but doesn’t appear fussy. And how pretty is that Roman shade?


          Source: Home Bunch

This white marble kitchen is lovely! I really love those open shelves and that subway tile backsplash. That range hood is speaking to me, too!!

What about these two kitchens from DIY Decorator? 


I love a kitchen with a large island, interesting lighting and lots of natural light! The paneled backsplash adds a lot of warmth to the room, too.

Next week I will be sharing farmhouse fireplaces. Have a wonderful Friday!

Farmhouse Friday: Soda crates

I love that wooden soda crates are popular right now. They are so versatile and so neat looking, too. 

I have two of them that I have used in a number of ways:


There are still more ways to use them on Pinterest. I thought it might be fun to share them with you today.

I love everything about this picture. I love that crate, those white blooms, the watering can, and that demijohn!

Pottery Barn

How about this spring vignette from Life on Kaydeross Creek?

I’ve also seen them repurposed as stools, 

Prodigal Pieces

shelves, 

Pinterest.com 

shadow boxes,

Christmas Inspirations

 and spice racks.

Brohaha

See? I told you they were versatile! Keep your eyes peeled for my wood crate. You’ll see it again real soon.

How do you use your wood crate?

Farmhouse Friday: milk pitchers

I love decorating with milk pitchers. For many years, this farmhouse staple was used for serving milk to hungry families, not for decorating. I thought for this week’s farmhouse Friday I’d share a roundup of Milk pitcher decorating ideas.

This metal milk pitcher is being used to store kitchen utensils.


                          <source>

Is there anything prettier than simple blooms in a white pitcher?


                         <source>

Simple greenery looks amazing as well.


                       <source>

This pitcher with cotton stems is lovely as well.


                        <source>

In my own house, I have three IKEA pitchers corralling my kitchen utensils.


How do you use pitchers in your home?
