I love to decorate especially in our new house. My husband once asked me why I wasn’t so keen on decorating our house in the city before. Well, simply because, it needs home improvement and a lot of things need to be done inside and if I decorate, I don’t want my job to be disturbed or moved just because he wants to fix something where my decors are. So for 7+ of living in our other house, all I could do was hang frames on the walls and a little touch of seasonal decors.
Here in the country, I bought quite a lot of decors. I want it to be homey and beautiful but not overwhelmingly decorated inside and outside. Here’s a few pictures of my Fall set up in the front porch.
You see, you don’t live in the country unless you have that wagon wheel, hay bales, rustic milk can and windmill decor.
… you know it’s Fall when mums starting to come out and give beautiful blooms of any color…
…. my table center piece, pumpkin tea set and acorn metal basket I’ve had for 3 years, I bought it from Goodwill in Fort Worth. Pine cones were gathered from the backyard.
…. scare crows from the last two years of having them as well as plug-in jack-0-lanterns.
It has been over two months since we moved in to our log home and we are not done moving all our stuff yet from the city house. Around this time some people may have completed decorating their house but not me. I am taking it slow as I am waiting for these two metal wall decors online to arrive.
I have done three DIY shelves so far on the wall in some parts of our house. Shelving is easy to install plus it is a space saver. You can choose to put up stuff on the shelf for decoration purposes at the same time use them when you need them.
My personal preference is display cute things which are functional. I don’t want clutter as well. I want to keep home decorating simple to give our home that cozy feel at the same time less boring. Pictures below are of the shelving I installed for my girls’ bathroom upstairs in the first photo, it is is also the first shelving I did.
There is not much space for cabinets up there and you know girls, they need to have a place to put their everyday things they use for school. So I labeled a tin can for their hairbrushes, separate basket for hair ties and etc.
The second photo is of the shelf by the front door. It shows our patriotic side since my husband had served in the air force and his family was in the military.
Third is in our master bath over the toilet shelving. I thought it was cute for this unique little man in a barrel that I gifted my husband with ten years ago. He did not really like it so the girls got a hold of this toy and just tossed this man everywhere. Now it has found its resting place.
If you think this post interests you, please keep coming back to my blog as I will be posting more updates about my home decorating ideas here in the future.
…. my husband installed the brackets we bought from Hobby Lobby and I sanded and stained the wood to use for shelving that complemented the baseboards and trims of the bathroom.
…. I got this cute Texas brick from Mike’s he has a few and asked for two. Painted it with white, red and blue as a Texas flag looks. Then bought a rustic weighing scale clock from Tractor supply. Toppings I’ve had for years, the small pumpkins were bought. Pine cones are free I picked up from the backyard. The little patriotic bird house I bought for $1.20 at Dollar General just match perfectly for other things on the shelf. I am pleased with how it turns out.
… simple over the shelf decors in the master toilet, a pothos plant is good to absorb the stinks we make each time we do our business there.
