On My Bookshelf

If you've stumbled upon my blog before, chances are you know I'm a voracious reader. As a new mom, I am attempting to be diligent in carving out time for me. I try to read a few pages every night before bed...something that doesn't rhyme or involve animal noises. Every now and then, my bookshelf overflows with so much good stuff, I have to share. Here's what's on my bookshelf right now:

Mastering Your Decor Budget

We officially sold our house today! I have so much to say about that process but today, we're talking interior design! I've spent the last couple weeks dreaming about our new place and how I'm going to decorate once we get the final green light to move in. 

Laurel + Wolf, an interior design company that connects you with professionals to design your space, reached out to me about sharing this DIY guide to decorating on a budget. Since it's all I pretty much think about these days, it was a no brainer!

Here are my thoughts on mastering your decor budget:

1. Thrift!
I love scoping my local thrift stores, garage sales, and craigslist for cheap finds! I also love a good hand-me-down. Some of my favorite pieces have been found while thrifting, like our $20 patio furniture, or our dining room table.

2. Paint is your best friend.
It's so amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do. Walls, fireplaces, furniture - paint can basically cure everything. Our table is the perfect example. White paint completely transformed the table from outdated to farmhouse chic. I just love it!

3. Shop your home. 
Don't be afraid to move things around. I love rearranging the furniture or switching up my shelving decor to make it all feel new. It costs $0 to shop your house!

House Tour: Our Home

We had professional photos taken for our listing and wow, we were blown away! I've taken plenty of photos of our home but when you get the right person behind the camera (with a wide-angle lens), magic happens.

I was going to go room by room for our final reveal of our home but instead I'm going to post them all right here. I'll do a details post sometime later on if people are interested.

Welcome to our home:
