Thrift Haul

Hey guys! I thought I would share something a little different. I finally got around to making that “video” lol. I decided to start a Youtube channel and I thought why not start it with a what I love most and that’s thrifting so I did a collective thrift haul. It’s a little rough and the lighting is not exactly the best but I’m still learning so bare with me. I hope you guys watch, like, and subscribe, I can’t wait to make more.

Peace and love always,

Thrifted bohemian Gallery Wall

Hey everyone, I have been doing a ton of thrifting lately and I have yet to share my finds or what I have done with them. As you may or may not we are currently in transition as we wait for our home to sell so we are renting a little place for the time being and I have tried to make it feel as homey as possible and I went back to my love for things you wouldn’t find in just anyone’s home. I shopped my own home and found odds and ends at thrift stores and flea markets.

I can’t stress enough to not be afraid of shopping second hand. It’s in those places that you can find the most unique pieces to add to your home. I’ve never been one to follow the trend. Right now I see everyone is going crazy over the farmhouse look and I to love it because I’m not one demenisonal when it comes to decorating styles. Although I feel as there’s not much originality out there anymore ( you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all) so I  like to shop secondhand and create that eclectic vibe that nobody else has and FOR CHEAP! My dream would be to shop peoples homes and secondhand stores to create fabulous living spaces ( Maybe someday huh….?) Anyway, here is a look at my gallery wall….

I found ALL of these things at thrift stores and by shopping my own home. I recently have found a love for baskets…hanging baskets with plants in them and just hanging them on the wall as decor.

If you have been a follower of mine since I started this blog you would know I never put the television in our living room and I would constantly get asked why? or where is it? We usually have it in our bedroom and one in a family room. I’ve never liked the televisions in the room where people gather for coffee and good conversation but for now the big ugly thing has to be placed here, so I worked around it by creating a gallery wall around the television.

I love finding random items to create something unique from, especially for really cheap. I love the hunt!

Peace and Love…

Bohemian abode

 

Good Morning! Wow, it’s been awhile since I last posted and so much has changed. If you are an avid follower you will probably notice a big difference in my décor and my living space. Like I said I have made some big changes in my life  one of those being that I have downsized while we get our current home cleaned out , painted, and carpet in to sell. Yes, we are selling our first home. We have spent 5 years there and it never really felt like “our home” it wasn’t at all what we hoped for, it turned out to be more work than fun and our priorities in the last year or so have really changed as well as our lives. I don’t want to go into much more detail than that but currently I found a small humble abode to stay  as we transition into our next phase of life wherever that may take us.

My décor is much different here, it reflects everything I am in eclectic and bohemian ways and I love it. I thought I’d share with you a sneak peak at a small part of the living room while I get the rest put together.

I love thrifting and I will literally stop in many times through out the week because there is always something to be found. I may have a slight problem (lol). I did find this AMAZING art piece while I had stopped in one rainy evening for a shelf for my bathroom and as I was walking out I saw this leaning against the wall. It’s huge, it’s beautiful, it’s original, and somebody left it for me to find! I love flowers and plants and I myself love painting them but when I found this piece for $30 at the GW and well worth it I had to have it! There’s not a scratch or a ding on it. It’s done in acrylics and the canvas alone from a craft store in this size is over 3o bucks or more, I think I scored something fab and to boot nobody else has it hanging in their home.

The room is not done but I thought I’d give you the progress and how it’s looking so far. I can’t wait to share the rest as I get it put together along with all of my repurposed furniture and a tree stump I’m creating something out of!

Peace and Love Always,
