Hi Guys, I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th holiday, I know that we sure did hanging out with our family and friends and of course some great food! I feel like every year after July 4th is over the rest of the summer just flies by and were back at school before we know it heading into Halloween but I dont want to rush that!
Today I am going to be sharing the best farmhouse greenery for your home. This of course is just my opinion but I do see alot of others on Instagram using these same types of greenery. I absolutely love faux greenery, I totally stink at keeping plants alive I mean I killed succulents and those are suppose to be really hard to kill so fake plants are for sure up my ally. The Ikea plants are my favorite I would have to say but I dont get to Ikea very often but when I do I like to stock up because the best part about them is that they are only $3.99!!
These are the lambs ear looking plants which are my favofrite
These are the three different types of plants that are $3.99 at Ikea you can not purchase them online either so you have to go to the nearest store to purchase.
Then we have the boxwoods, oh how I just love boxwood wreaths! I have personally found that Target has decent prices on them and I normally wait till they offer a sale and then use my red card for the extra 5%.
I have quite a few of these in my house and I am always moving them around, I also have a few of the smaller ones that I have gotten at local shops that sell farmhouse decor if your from northeast Ohio I know you can purchase them at Gable Lane and also Funkyjunk Boutique

21.5″ Boxwood at Target
I also love to use these adorable little wreaths on my table settings as well as little hooks and I also have them on a couple of my cabinet doors in the kitchen.
These adorable little wreaths you can purchase at Magnolia and also you can purchase them at a local shop called Elements on Main and she also ships.
Lastly I absolutely adore these lamb ear stems and of course cotton stems. you can get both of these at hobby lobby here for the Cotton and here for the Lambs Ear. All of these are very budget friendly and can really make a space feel cozy. Its all in the detail that brings a room to life. I hope you all enjoy your weekend make sure you follow me on Instagram XOXO
Hey guys! So its been a couple of months since we finished renovating our kitchen but I wanted to share with you guys about it. The day we moved in this house i realized how bad it really was, the wood was rotted out under the sink from a leak we had no idea had been there and the faucet was all rickety and there was this tiny apartment size dish washer that would never be able to do enough dishes for a family of 6 thats for sure! We stuck it out while we worked on alot of other things that needed done in the house to make it our “home”. Anyways back to the reno haha, the first to go was the floor, it was a high gloss vinyl that looked like a honey oak so we took it out and installed reclaimed wood tile which my husband did himself which saved lots of money with him knowing how to install tile. We also had lost alot of cabinet space compared to our old kitchen so the hubby built us a pantry so that solved our space problem. Here is a picture of the pantry that he installed, this was just a wall with a clothe shoot and he took it out and we used the dead space in better ways.
We decided to keep the cabinets that we had and we replaced the rotted board under the sink and built some dividers between the cabinets that were not there before and refresh them with a new paint lift as well as new hardware. We got maple butcherblock countertops from lumber liquidators and installed new subway tile back splash. We also went to Ikea and got a farmhouse sink with a new faucet. We did have to alter the cabinets a little for the sink to fit but it just looks great and you would think it had been there the entire time. Aaron also took out this horrible breakfast nook area that was open to the living room and we installed a butcherblock top with some piping legs and also took out the post that had this horrible original track lights. The paint color on the walls are silver strand on the top by Sherwin Williams and the bottom is Du Jour by Valspar. The cabinet color top is also Du Jour and the bottom is Fashion Grey by Behr. Attached are some before and after pictures and links to where you can find products that we used in our kitchen. Enjoy your day friends! Please feel free to post any comments I would love to answer any of your questions.
