DIY Wood Candlesticks

Earlier this week I was testing out some decorating ideas for the holiday season (yes, I know...way too early, but Christmas is not entirely my thing so I need plenty of planning time).

Anyway, I'm kind of smitten with these super easy wood candlesticks I made. I intend to do more, in various sizes, but I thought I would share my first batch with you all....BTW, totally thinking these would be amazing for Thanksgiving on either my dining table or mantel.

Turning Antique Bakery Carts into Usable Storage

You might remember a couple of months ago we bought an antique bakery cart for our dining room (here). I had been looking for one almost since around the time we bought the farmhouse, about a year ago. So, I was super excited when I found this one at a great price, with chippy paint in the perfect color and that was still in sturdy condition.

I had it decorated really simply, because honestly, the shelving is quite challenging to work with. They are all dowels, some of which roll and all of which are bowed from years of use. I'm not at all complaining, because I couldn't be more in love with the history that are behind these old pieces.

Gold Gilded & Stained Wood Coffee Table Tray

I seem to run into a certain problem more and more lately.  I'll have a vision for a certain decorative item in my mind and search everywhere for it with zero success.

Vintage White Dresser with Coral Knobs

I have a little different makeover to share with you all. Whenever I have to replace hardware on a piece we are working on I tend to gravitate towards the vintage inspired glass knobs.  They are undoubtedly my favorite and tend to work universally well on all eras of furniture.

However, on this dresser I felt inspired to take it to a really feminine level and use these gorgeous Aged Ceramic Coral Knobs from D. Lawless Hardware.

Easy, Rustic Corn Husk Wreath

When you pair a girl who is a life long New Englander with a guy who was raised in Indiana, it's inevitable that we would love to eat corn. It's honestly my favorite part of summer. And, we were so thrilled to have found some really fantastic corn in our new town.
