    Based on my Instagram feed, I’m a bit late to posting on fall decor.

  • Fall Front Porch and Hallway Reveal
    September 20, 2017

    I get on these kicks where I’ll start one project and then jump to another one without finishing the first. It’s not my best habit, I’ll be the first to admit that. Thankfully, all of the projects of late have revolved around the same thing — painting. Also not my favorite thing to do, but ...

  • Farmhouse Dining Room Reveal
    June 23, 2017

    If you saw my hallway reveal, you know I’ve suddenly been overcome with the urge to paint all the things white. Amanda put it well when she said we dream in black, white and greenery. Add a little natural wood in, and that’s my happy place! Once I finished the hallway, I had this vision ...
