Easy Trim project for basement (DIY Trim)

Hi all! I know that you have been following along on instagram (see the top on my instagram for the entire story of the basement update, it is on the highlight section.) I wanted to share with you here as well. I know that many still like to “pin” all the projects:) I have been going real old school lately and actually getting inspiration from magazines again! I know, archaic! Do you think that we will ever go back to just reading books and magazines?? I kind of hope so. As much as I love my phone, I feel so tied to it at times….I often think it would be kind of nice for the internet to break down for a few weeks. Can you imagine?? It would be kind of liberating!

Anywhos, onto the trim that is literally my favorite thing in the whole world. No, not dramatic. It adds soooooooo much to this space! Here is a little break down of how we did it…..

Almost FREE Fall Mantle (Shop the House)

Wow friends, it has been AWHILE! I had to re train myself on how to blog! Is anybody still here? I know that I hear from some of you on instagram and facebook….hope others are still here:) I hope to blog a bit more often, now that life is settling a bit.

We have had a cray cray 2018—let’s just say we are looking forward to this winter and turning the calendar page to 2019. I know that you come here to finding inspiration….so I thought I would give you a bit of fall goodness today. Even though temperatures are still in the 90’s….I decided to pull some fall things out and re arrange them a bit. I got a couple of new things at Homegood’s—but everything else was from other parts of the house. It is a simple mantle—but I like it that way.

I wanted to show you how you can create something similar in your home—just by layering a few things at a time.

I started with a wreath that I have had a long time. I actually shared this several years back (how to make a full wreath for not a lot of cash:) Next, I placed one tall wheat and a smaller one (both found at Homegood’s) on the left side, and I balanced that with a lantern I took from the Dining Room. Then I added in some smaller items like a couple of framed pictures of my kiddos (when they were little, sigh), some fake apples (that totally look real), a piece of pottery from the kitchen, and some old books from the library.

I placed this old window (that has been everywhere in our house) and I secured a wheat wreath with floral wire….

All the colors of fall….nice and cozy…I added in a few flameless candles as well:) See me on instagram and I will share that this week:)

I hope that gives you a few ideas for your own mantle. Kentucky friends, I added a few fall inspired watercolor pillows in the Etsy shop….. Stop by to see! If you have a minute, my peanut started a blog….go show her some love!

Large DIY Kitchen Chalkboard

Hi all! Popping in to share some photos from a recent kitchen project we completed last weekend. I love me some chalkboard!!! We had a huge wall in our kitchen that was in desperate need of a paint job. I thought that the space would be great to do a large framed chalkboard. It is now a favorite spot in this room! Let me show you what we did…
