~outdoor modern furniture~{get the look}

I am LOVING these pieces.
I know it's almost fall, but don't forget about your outdoor spaces just yet!
These modern-ish pieces would be great for any sleek home or even a modern farmhouse.

Love, love, love this chair.
It looks super comfy too.

This accent table is fabulous:

And with an edison bulb, this light would look amazing!

How about this indoor/outdoor rug?

And a teepee for around $100? Ok!

This set of chairs looks high end, but the price is very good.

This little planter would look so cute with a succulent in it.

And to finish it all off, add your house numbers!

There ya go!
Your guide to the modern porch, sort of….

~back to school storage/organization~

One of the easiest and most practical thing I've ever made was this back to school station right on our porch.
I stained crates and then stacked them one on top of the other for sports equipment, backpacks, shoes, and misc. gear.

These crates can be found at Home Depot.

Super simple storage for those busy times!

~DIY ginger jar lamp bases~{thrifty Thursday}

I wanted to add some height to my ginger jar lamps in our living room.
Here they are:

Here are some bases I was looking at. The only problem was, I couldn't find any bases sold seperately that I liked, or that were in my price range.

Then when I was thrifting the other day I came across these plastic plant pot things. I don't even know what you call them, saucers? But, there was a bunch and when stacked 3 high and turned upside down, they work as a base!
Ok, these won't be the permanent bases for my lamps, but they are a good temporary solution until I can find exactly what I am looking for!

I bought 6 at 99 cents each, stacked them 3 high and spray painted both "piles" with brass spray paint, set them under the lamps, and voila!

You'd never know they are plastic saucers, so fair now, they will do just fine!

~finding the perfect stair runner~

In 2015 when I re-did our basement/mudroom for the ORC, I ripped up the dirty carpet on our stairs, painted them, and added a stair runner.
The stair runner is now one of my favorite things in our home as it adds interest, texture, and stripes, I love stripes!

The one we went with is Dash and Albert, it is two of them and you can find them here.

Here it was going in:

My friend Tiffany also used this Dash and Albert rug on her stairs, which is so fun that I wish I had more stairs!

My friend Heather opted for a leopard print
