    Easy DIY Fall Wall Art

    When you can’t find it, you just DIY it, right? As I was slowly decorating and adding in my fall decor, I knew I wanted to add in a few fall pictures. As I was searching all my go to places and even online, I just couldn’t find any fall art that I absolutely loved. If I did find one, it was out of stock or too expensive. So, I decided to DIY my own fall art. You know this has to be easy if I’m doing it because I’m not a very crafty person.

    Planning and Designing a Built-in Bunk Bed

    As most of you know, in just a few short months our family will be leaving our current house and moving into the one we’re currently building. We never really put it up for sale, but we ended up getting a contract on it just a few weeks before we started our new build. It was truly God’s plan the way it worked out and we have become wonderful friends with the soon to be new owners.

    Our Top Picks for Dark Exterior Paint Colors

    I am such a sucker for dark exteriors! I think a lot of people love the look, but are scared to go that route, and understandable so. It’s a bold statement.

    Although we will not be brave enough to go completely dark on our new build exterior, we will probably go darker on the trim and siding of the new house. We gave you a little preview on Instagram when we posted the last two Renders that Henry did.

    Tips for Starting your Fall Decorating

    I can’t believe Autumn is already approaching. The years seem to fly by and the seasons don’t seem to be long enough. I have to say though, I’m so ready for Fall! It’s beyond my favorite season. I love everything about fall: the cooler weather, sweaters, and pumpkin spice lattes. To me, fall just screams cozy!
