Change Any Chandelier Into A Farmhouse Chandelier

THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS.

The light fixtures in my house aren't bad. They could definitely be worse. I actually don't mind them too much. I've only switched one fixture because we needed a fan. I bought a beaded chandelier to put in my dining room, but decided that I might want to have it in my front room. Mainly because I didn't think the current one in my dining room is half bad. I did want to update it and give a new look though.

This was a super simple project. It took just a couple of minutes, and made me happy enough with my current chandelier to keep it in place....well, for the time being anyway :)

First step was to take off the shades.  I then made sure that every light was a flame tipped candle light to give it a more authentic look.

 Next, I strung some beads along a jute rope. I used these beads in 3/4 inch from Amazon. The size of the whole thing once finished was about 60"; 12" for each section.

 I then looped it around the chandelier. I tied the ends together and trimmed the rope so you couldn't see it anymore. I tried the best that I could that each little 'loop' was the same height.

 And that's it! I didn't do this, but you could go a step further and paint the chandelier to give it an even more drastic change.

I love simple projects like this that make you happy with what you have without having to go and buy something new :) ....even though I already did, ha! But that's now going in my front room as I mentioned above. Can't wait to get it in there!

Easy Spring Entry Way Decor


I have a spot in my house that changes constantly. Or at least the wall does. I can't ever figure out what to put on this wall in my entry beneath my stairs. Either it's too big and I can't open that bench, or it's too small for the wall. So, yeah. It's ever changing. I decided to try something new for Spring. Wait....what's spring you say? Oh, it's the thing that happens after all this horrid snow and below 0 temps :) haha. I know. Putting this up is jinxing myself. And I totally did. I put this up one day, and the next it snowed 10 inches. Now I'm going to push my luck and decorate the rest of house in the coming days. Bring on the three feet of snow! 

Anyway. Back to my entryway...

I added some new additions in here. First thing being a stick. Yep. I actually just put it here for a second since it was an empty wall to lean on. And...I loved it. So, I tucked it behind the basket to incorporate it. Random stick...check! haha. Next, I found this "This is us" sign and couldn't let it go. It's one of those pieces that is almost too big for the wall since I can barely open the bench with the pillows on it. So far though...it hasn't fallen. *knock on wood* I decided to spring this piece up by adding some green garland to it. On to the cathedral window I made last year. I just love this piece, but can't find a living spot for it. I actually had it in my 'spring' box and didn't know where to put it. So, I tried it here. Usually wouldn't do something like this since it feels off. But I think with the gradual 'steps' if you will from the smaller stick, to the sign and then up to the window I think it works. Maybe I'm wrong. But for now, it's staying!

Here's the view looking at the door. I never know which way to decorate this bench. The pillows only face one way. I love walking by this area during the day with the pillows looking at me. But, I also know it's more inviting coming in to the face of the pillows. What do you think?

As for the pillows. Even though I rarely have flowers in my house, I just fell in love with this Flower Market pillow. I paired it with some neutral stripes and texture with the other two pillows.

Every time I look at the stairs in these pictures I want to rip off the carpet and paint them white! I would have to add a runner down the middle for my littles, but I totally think this might be my next big project! What do you think? White or the color of my floors? Those are my options. ...or leave it. I guess that's an option also...and definitely the option my husband would pick. You know...the whole leave things be and don't ever ever ever change a thing. Yeah. haha.

What area do you decorate for spring first? I guess the bigger question...when? I just got so sick of my winter decor...even though I loved my flocked trees. I figured 3 months of that is enough. I needed to keep it "magical". The magic gets lost when you have it around for half the year! haha. Plus, the whole 10 inches of snow thing is bugging me. I sure live in the wrong place! I need 80 degree temps! :)

Farmhouse Buffet Table Decor and Ideas

This post contains affiliate links.

My buffet table in my dining room is probably one of my favorite places to decorate. Not because I like adding my collections to it...but for the main fact that since it's out of the way, it won't get touched or knocked down :) So, I can add to it how I please. This table has seen lots of changes over the years and I think I'm finally at a stage that I am completely happy with it.

The best thing about it, is that it's functional and pretty. For instance...my bread boards. Probably not so functional, although some of them are food safe, but they are pretty to look at and add that perfect farmhouse vibe. I've started to collect them this past year, and now have around 10. I just love their unique nature and look.  I have even gone as far to make a few of my own, like this one with the white tip. I'll have a tutorial on how I made it up soon! In order to balance the height of the 3 tiered tray, I placed my largest bread board against the wall and just layered the others against it. I've seen dining rooms that have these displayed all along the wall. I don't think I'm ready to do that just yet, but I love the idea!

 Since it technically still is winter, I decided to add some greens and pine cones on here.  I just painted this terracotta pot, and then sanded it down to give it a little rougher appearance. I placed my place holder winter greens in here to add some color.

 Now for my three tiered tray. This houses a fraction of my coffee mugs. Yes, there are more :) I like to add some little unexpected bits on here to for each season. For winter, it's just the greens again with frosted pine cones.

 I found this cute little plant stool and wasn't sure where it would end up. I draped a Hearth and Hand by Magnolia tea towel over it and topped it off with some small dipping plates. I think it adds a lot of character to the space. These dipping plates are actually really cute, I didn't get a picture close up, but you can see them here.

 I love how this whole space came together. As you can see, I'm a sucker for browns and whites!

 This buffet table is actually two Ikea dressers. You can see the tutorial on how to make these here. It has made a world of difference having so much storage in here now. The drawers house a plethora of things like crafts, candles, paper towels, and extra linens.
