Hobby Lobby Fall Decor 2019- A Mood Board of My Favorites! Plus all under $30!

So, a few weeks ago I shared some of my favorites from Kirkland’s fall collection. I thought this week I’d switch it up and share all of the some of the stuff I’m loving from Hobby Lobby!

This store is so overwhelming to me. I cannot be alone in this. I have all these ideas for what I’m looking for and so I load up in the car and drive to Hobby Lobby. I park the car, walk through those two sets of doors, grab my little blue cart, and completely lose all rational thought.

Maybe it’s the overwhelm of so many beautiful things that causes my mind to start going in a million directions? Most likely. It’s probably a lot like the saying “a kid in a toy store”, except there are no more brick and mortar toy stores. And so kids don’t know what that feels like anymore. I guess we’ll have to change the saying to “a kid in the toy section at Target.” Or maybe that saying was “a kid in a candy store”?

Anyhoo, I digress. Back to the matter at hand. Focus, Lauren.

The moral of this story is, I can’t just walk into Hobby Lobby without a game plan. I have to have a strict list in my mind of what I need in my house at the time and what I need to purchase to accomplish it. No veering off course or getting distracted.

And that’s also why I love these mood boards. I get to “browse the aisles” in the comfort of my own home and put them together to see if I like the way they look. And instead of coming home with things that didn’t work and then subsequently have to be returned, I can just find something else to replace it with from my couch.

Then, I can actually go to the store knowing exactly what I want or need which simplifies things so much. Or, I can just order online. Either way it makes life easier.

Hobby Lobby Fall 2019 Wish List

Here’s what spoke to me the most. It all looks cozy, comfy, farmhouse-y. It embodies what I love most about fall. Wanting to snuggle up by the fire and read a book. The smell of a pumpkin scented candle. A pot of chili simmering on the stove.

And, just the time of year where we all slow down a little. Think about all the blessings in our lives that we are so truly thankful for.

DIY Chair Makeover- Easy Step by Step Tutorial!

A Step By Step Tutorial on How To Copy this $7 DIY Chair Makeover!

I’ve been a bit M.I.A. for the last week or so. A new school year has started for my husband and daughter so we’ve spent the last two weeks taking it easy before the mad rush started.

So, that means I have tons of projects I need to share! My DIY desk chair was actually a project I did back in July but I realized I never shared anything about it.

I snagged this old wooden chair at a yard sale for $7. And I’m quite proud of myself for the fact that this chair did not sit in our garage for a year or two before I finally decided to refinish it. Thank you very much, Jeremy!

I firmly stand by summer and will enjoy every single last drop wearing my tank top and flip flops while the smell of the grill fills the air and my beach towels dry in the breeze.

I live for summer. Love it. It just goes by way too quickly.

Don’t get me wrong. I love fall as much as the next person, but only when it’s actually fall!!!! To me, fall is really just the beginning of winter and who wants to rush that! Not this girl.

Come September, I promise I will dutifully join the masses and set out my own pumpkin scented candle from Bath and Body Works as I unpack the fall totes.

But, still, I understand some people like the change. They’re chomping at the bit to hang their fall wreaths and line their porches with bright orange pumpkins and assorted colors of mums.

DIY Round Coffee Table

How to Transform an Old, Outdated Table into a Farmhouse Style DIY Pedestal Round Coffee Table.

Today I’m sharing the DIY farmhouse pedestal coffee table makeover from the round table we found at the thrift store a few weeks ago. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be our new coffee table. Other than being too tall, it was the perfect size and scale for our living room upstairs. And, I really had my heart set on a round shape to balance out the sharp edges of our sectional.

*AND*

DIY Bathroom Renovation on a Budget: We Sold Our Home in 4 Days!

In honor of #throwback thursday, I thought I’d share our DIY bathroom renovation on a budget from our first home. You’ll have to excuse the terrible pictures and terrible lighting. I had no idea that one day I may actually do the blog that I was picturing in my head, even all those years ago.

I really think the old me would be impressed with the current me. I do wish I could go back in time and tell the old me that cleaning that 1189 square foot home was really no big deal and to stop complaining. Also, to enjoy my Friday nights binge watching Netflix and sleeping in on Saturdays. But, I digress. Back to the matter at hand.

Here’s some before’s to give you an idea of what we were working with.
