House Fall Decor

As always, happy weekend to you all!  Today I’m sharing my Fall Decor (kind of a fall home tour, but just sharing some of my fall finds for those of you who want to decorate on a budget…. THANKS TARGET and Trader Joes.  While I was doing my almost weekly Target visit I scored on some amazing FALL finds in the “dollar section.”  I purchased some cloth napkins for $3 for a 2pack, an oversized fall scarf, that I’m using as a throw blanket in my living room (don’t judge me). and some cute fall stencils, and stickers.  Not to mention there was tons of spring/summer items on sale!  Today was a win.

First Vintage Market

It’s October! Can you believe it? This is by far my favorite season, and my favorite time to decorate the house.  Fall leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows, wood signs, orange and brown, did I say pumpkins everywhere, and a time to be thankful.  I LOVE IT.  As many of you know yesterday (Saturday October 1st) was my first official market, where I sold lots of my handmade items and refurbished antique style furniture.  I was SO excited about it that I could Barely breathe.  On my way to the market I told my husband I felt like I was going to throw up.  (like the feeling you used to get before a really big sports game you were about to play in.) Well that was me…. This has been on my mind for a long time, and ever since I started blogging two years ago, it’s been a dream of mine. it’s been a long time comin’.

Taking the Plunge

After some prayer, self talk, and a vacation to really think about my future, I have decided to take the plunge and pursue my year long dream of participating in a vintage market.  I currently work full time at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders as a Therapist Liaison.   I’ve always had a dream of starting my own business of buying and reselling furniture and DIYing lots of cool rustic artwork and farmhouse inspired decor.  However with my full time job it’s tough to think about anything else after a long day of work.   I love my job there and care so much about all of the people there, and I don’t plan to quit any time soon.  Which means I’m going to have to become super woman and somehow juggle both, until maybe one day when a hobby can become a full time job.

IKEA Floating Shelves

Uhmm…. Where did the weekend go? I completely ran out of time this weekend to post my usual Sunday post.. So here we are, and Monday is almost over (Yay, am I right?)  My newest project has been to tackle my boring upstairs guest bathroom, and in about 2 weekends the reveal is coming!! SO excited to share it with you all.  I added some IKEA (kinda) floating shelves to above the toilet, for storage and a rustic look.  I purchased 2 packs of the silver Ekeby brackets, which came in a pack of two.  These were about $10 for each pack.  IKEA does have shelves that fit perfectly in there, and I made the mistake of buying them.  They were also $10 each.  However I realized quickly that they were not stainable, and I wasn’t in love with the color. So I took them back and purchased some wood from home depot.  The wood doesn’t fit perfectly but it definitely works.  I paid $7 total for my wood. I also purchased some textured black spray paint from Home Depot for $6 and I painted the silver brackets black to give them a farmhouse look. I stained my wood in.. take a guess…. Special Walnut from Rustoleum.  (I really need to venture out more).
