Keep Your Home Under Control Throughout The Year

Our homes are our pride and joy, and because of that, we always want to ensure that it is looking it’s best as often as possible. The idea of making this happen though can be rather stressful because you immediately imagine having a deep clean from top to bottom that takes you at least four days to tackle without any sleep. But this really isn’t the case, and there’s no need to run around like a headless chicken to get to where you want to be.

Bits of Vintage New Home Wishlist Decor

So most of you who have been following us for the last few years know we just retired from the Army after 20 years of service.

Farmhouse Style Decorating for Spring

ABCI recently wrote this article for White Walls and wanted to share with my readers as well. Check out their site at http://whitewallsonline.com

I am so in love with Farmhouse decor….and  you may be asking yourself “What exactly is farm-house decor?” Well in my eyes it’s shiplap walls, big porches, picket fences, and lots of brown, burlap, and neutral color palettes. It’s light, it’s airy, and it feels like home.

If you are anything like me and you spend your T.V. time watching Chip and Joanna transform houses for deserving couples..yearning for a home that looks like something out of a scene from a magazine.

Now first I must say I do like my home but the “farm girl” in me is ready to bust out and get back to her roots. I have always wanted a farm to grow old on.

Bed Frame Collecting Dust?

Find a bed frame on the side of the house collecting dust (or the side of the road, we don’t judge) Yes – on the side of the side of the road or dumpster dive!!!Your community is completely full of more important pieces! This one was probably intended for scrap wood (They saved it.)

Next, you chop it up and stuff. Really. I don’t know exactly what they did to it. But I do know that they used almost all of the bed. The sides are the bed rails. The front is the footboard, minus some of it – so you could actually sit on it. And I know they took great care in measuring the seat height before he chopped things up. Lot’s of measuring was going on.
