Pinterest Round Up: Favorite Fall Pillows

Pinterest Round Up: Favorite Fall Pillows

favorite fall pillows

 

I am excited to announce that my favorite season has officially arrived….well, at least it has on the calendar. It still feels like summer here in the Tarheel State, the leaves aren’t changing yet, and I haven’t quite broken out my scarves and sweaters yet. But I am decorating for fall and I can’t wait to show you my fall decor this week!

In the meantime, I want to share some of these cute fall pillows I found while browsing Pinterest one recent night when I couldn’t sleep. Side note: has anyone else been having a fit with their insomnia lately? I can’t be the only one.

My insomnia has been doing wonders for my Pinterest boards, my home design, and my organization skills, but not much for my checking account. I keep finding things I want, and these cute fall pillows are certainly no exception.

Take a look at the cuteness I uncovered during my most recent late night:

  1. Pumpkin Lumbar Pillow, $34.99 at Wayfair. 

comeaux-pumpkins-lumbar-pillowI really like this- it’s cute without being too stuffy, and it would go with most anything.

2. “Thankful” Lumbar Pillow, $19.99 at Target

If you’ve followed me for any length of time, then you know I love typographical art, signs, pillows….everything…

3. Fall pillow cover, $29.95

This pillow cover is from Etsy. I really like the fabric pumpkins, and I bet this would be pretty easy to make. In fact, I’m thinking of making some of these myself.

4. Celebrate Fall Pumpkins Pillow, $17.99 at Kohls

I like this one just because it’s simple and has lots of different colors. Plus, it has pumpkins and bittersweet on it. Guess what’s in my living room right now?

5. Rae Dunn “Gather” pillow at Kirklands, $19.99

I am a huge fan of Rae Dunn’s pottery and have several of her coffee cups, but I had no idea she made pillows, too. This is super cute and I can think of many places where I’d use it.

I hope you have enjoyed this Pinterest round up. Stay tuned for a fun fall craft this week and my fall tour. Maybe my sleepless nights will result in even more cute things to share with you.

Have a wonderful week!

Make a tray from an old picture frame

Make a tray from an old picture frame

I have had this old picture frame for ages, and while I knew I could make something cool with it, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do.

I had painted it green at some point. I initially thought about painting it another color, but I found some old scrapbook paper that matched the color perfectly.

I found some really cool drawer pulls in a basket of junk parts that we never seem to throw away. I promptly drilled some holes in the side of the frame.

I brushed the dust away and then made two more holes on the opposite side.

I then screwed the drawer pulls to the tray.

I am pretty pleased with my cute little tray. It’s currently brightening up a corner of our office.

Five Fantastic Farmhouse Finds at Hobby Lobby

Five Fantastic Farmhouse Finds at Hobby Lobby

5 fantastic farmhouse finds at HL

We don’t have a Hobby Lobby in my town, and that might be a good thing…at least from a spending standpoint. We do have two of them within 45 minute drives of our house, though. Anytime I have to make a trip into either of those towns, I try to stop by.

I recently went into Hobby Lobby with my aunt and found so many things I wanted to buy. I didn’t, but I really wanted to.

For instance, this wall of pumpkins:

So many cute and interesting pumpkins- I bought a few of them, but they were not on sale.

I did find some cuteness that WAS on sale, though. I’m in the process of creating a new coffee bar, and “The Lobby” did not disappoint.

Enamel food canister- similar!  $17.49

I have wanted one of these canisters forever. I did not buy it yet, but plan to wait until we finish our kitchen construction. It’s very well made and looks perfectly vintage, even though it isn’t. The bread box is cool too.

This coffee sign made me laugh and would look lovely in my coffee bar.

2. Coffee definition sign, $11.99, currently on sale $5.99

And you know how much I love typographical art 🙂

3. “Less Coffee, More Monday” coffee mug, $7.99

Who else hates Mondays, but loooovvves coffee? Here is the perfect mug for us!!

This next picture is not coffee themed, but is watercolor art…and it still fits my farmhouse flair and looks cute in the process!

4. Watercolor succulent themed art, reg price $13.99, on sale for $6.99

These are super cute, and they’d look awesome in almost any room you’d want to use them in. They actually look like real water color paintings, too, which is definitely a plus.

I have wanted a globe for my office for ages…and this one is actually affordable…and antique-looking.

5. Sepia Globe with Wood Stand , reg. 29.99, sale for 14.99

I think this would look beautiful on our book shelves, or even in a travel-themed nursery or kid’s room.

DIY Fixer Upper Inspired Nursery Art

DIY Fixer Upper Inspired Nursery Art

I was in search of something new and cute to hang behind the crib, but it had to be inexpensive and cute.

Magnolia Market

I love this sign at Magnolia, but it was a little more than I wanted to pay… and since Waco is over 1,000 miles away, shipping would be pretty expensive as well. Cue the DIY side of my brain.

I bought a piece of foam board, and got to work. I used a computer to create a large poster with the verse I wanted, and I sent it to a local print shop.

I then Modge Podged the poster onto the foam board.

After it dried, I popped it into a barn wood frame. While I could have used less white space, I have to say I like how this sign turned out.

Plus, it looks great hanging behind the crib.

From discarded basket to farmhouse planter

From discarded basket to farmhouse planter

I found a neat looking basket in the discard pile at my job.

Yes, I trash pick. #notashamed

I liked this basket because it had feet and I liked the shape of it. It was also in great shape. I thought it would make a cute planter.

I promptly painted the basket white with some chalk paint.

I let the paint dry and painted a second coat of white chalk paint.

I then popped in some boxwoods and I thought it was perfect!

This thing would be cute with some faux apples in it for fall, or some mini gourds. I can’t wait to see how many different ways I can decorate with it!

Have you turned any trash into treasure lately? Comment and show me your projects!

Farmhouse Fridays Pinterest Round-up: my favorite living rooms

I’m gearing up for quite the busy week. My children are back in school and my students are back in my classroom. In spite of all the busyness, I wanted to share some inspiration I found on Pinterest this week…Pin-spiration, if you will 😁.

First up is this lovely room. I chose it because of its rustic wood ladder and chippy furniture. This look would be easy to create and wouldn’t cost much.

This room has so many fun textural elements. From the rug, to the throw pillows, to the big wooden coffee table. Also, did you guys spot that shiplap wall?

I love everything about this room. The fireplace, the beams, and the high ceilings. And is that a headboard ceiling?

I chose this living room for the barn door, the striped curtains and the typo art.

Our own living room will soon undergo a bit of a transformation. Stay tuned, and have a wonderful weekend.

Make it Monday: Paint stick burlap star

Make it Monday: Paint stick burlap star

You may recall when I made the folk art-inspired flag from paint sticks this summer. My folk art flag was beginning to fall apart and it had passed its phase of being useful…so I decided to repurpose it.

I started by taking the flag apart. See the paint? I didn’t bother taking the paint off since the sticks would be covered with burlap.

I laid it out in a star pattern and hot glued it together.

Then I began wrapping the star in wide burlap ribbon, taking the time to glue it at each pass. It took a long time and lots of ribbon, but when I finished, I had this:

I’m planning to hang it up and hang a wreath in the center of it. Isn’t it cute?
