Industrial Dog Toy Storage


I was out thrifting a couple weeks ago and stumbled upon this metal locker style storage bench for $10!! I had all kinds of ideas running through my head of places it could be useful which is often when I know it’s a great find! If I have to debate where I want to use the most, it’s usually a fail proof purchase! You can find a storage bench similar HERE (affiliate link).

I got it home and decided I would love it the most as storage for all of our MANY dog toys! I’m embarrassed to admit that this isn’t even all of them! I added a small chalkboard to the center and that’s it! It worked perfect for storage and I love the style of it for our house!

Simple Fall Door Decor


I love fall porches, I think out of all the porch decor, it has to be my all time favorite! The mums and pumpkins and colors and textures are just beautiful! Last year (you can view here) I went all out with hay, mums, pumpkins and more and don’t get me wrong I LOVED IT!!

But this year, I just didn’t have it in me to spend the money and time shopping and wanted to keep it simple but still festive. I got these awesome chippy wooden planters at the thrift store recently for $4 each and really wanted to incorporate them somewhere. I went to a local nursery and chose three colors and sizes of cinderella pumpkins that I could stack. The pumpkins on the square planters left some weird gap so I just took my DIY magnolia wreaths and used them underneath the pumpkins and it worked perfectly!


I accented some winter kale and small white pumpkins and then used this burlap wreath that I made last fall and that’s all folks! I am calling it done for fall! I LOVE all the porches that are overflowing with mums and pumpkins but this year I wanted to keep the cost down and the effort down which is just fine!! We don’t have to do it big every year! :)

Fall Living Room Home Tour


I just realized that after showing you our console table decorated every week for the Shop the House Design Challenge, I never showed you the final styling and the rest of the living room. I recently shared my Living Room Home Tour HERE and didn’t change out a ton for fall but did accent some fall decor that I think it worth sharing!


I added my fall wreath from DaisyMaeBelle on Etsy to my window pane mirror.

I just added some wheat from Home Goods to an antique pitcher for our sitting area


And here is how the console table ended up. I took some of my favorite things about each week of the Shop the House Challenge to decide on a final styling. 



Green Cabinet Makeover | DIY Cotton Wreath


Olive Bucket | DIY Wood and Iron Pumpkins | Candlesticks (similar here) | Antler from Dad



Timewashed Pumpkins on Wooden Pizza Paddle found at an estate sale

And that’s the Fall Living Room tour until the Christmas decor comes out! We have our house visit to complete our adoption home study this weekend so say a little prayer for us!
