Thrift Store Mirror to Chalkboard Calendar

Last month I had the fun opportunity to head to my local Habitat Restore to pick out a few items to flip.  If you didn’t see my first furniture flip, check out the garden planters I made out of locker drawers.  This month the fun doesn’t stop! While I was walking around the store, I was able to find a large mirror that needed a simple makeover but with big results.  Here’s the beauty before:

Fancy Finds // Fall Home Decor

September 26, 2016

Fall seems to be the time of year where everyone starts to feel refreshed with cooler weather on the way. Instagram feeds start to fill with fall activities and decor, pumpkin flavored everything make their debut, and homes get a makeover with fall home decor.  Besides Christmas, fall is my favorite time of year to decorate my home.  

I’ve always decorated with the pops of fall colors but this year I want to try and blend some neutral colors. That way some of the items can stay out past fall and into winter.  I’ve picked some of my favorite Fancy Finds and a DIY project to help incorporate fall home decor into your home. These items all have a similar farmhouse or classic style to them. I’m smitten by every single item being featured today. Can I just have all of them delivered to my front door?  Each home decor item is perfect for this time of year!

DIY // Create Your Own Sea Glass Bottles

DIY Sea Glass Bottles

Have you ever noticed you go to Home Depot or Lowe’s for certain things? At least I do!  For example, I always go to Lowe’s to purchase spray paint and find new colors.  They seem to have the best color selection and they offer an abundance of different types of spray paint.  Case in point: I found sea glass spray paint! I’ve never seen this type of spray paint before so I snatched it up in one of my favorite colors, sea foam. Maybe I’m late on this sea glass spray paint, but oh my word, the results are amazing.

Top 5 Laundry Room Sinks

There are days where I stare at my laundry room and wonder what I could do to add some farmhouse features.  I love the space and still want to add shelving to the area but then there’s the sink. The dreaded sink. We have a utility sink that does what it’s suppose to do, but I keep thinking of replacing it with a farmhouse inspired one.  It would definitely add some appeal to the space.  To become more inspired, I’ve found my top 5 farmhouse laundry room sinks that would be perfect for my space or for my dream laundry room.  Either way, I hope these laundry room sinks inspire you to look at your laundry space a little differently.

Decor Daydreams // Coffee Bar Cart

Coffee Bar Cart Decor Daydreams

I’ve had this bar cart sitting in my dining room for a little over a year now.  Fun fact: it’s technically a utility cart from Ikea.  I spray painted the metal pieces gold to give it some flair and called it a bar cart.  I used it for Ryan’s birthday, which worked out perfectly, but now I’m wanting to give it an update for everyday use.  In today’s Decor Daydreams, I’m showing a way to transform a bar cart into a coffee bar cart.

In a past Decor Daydreams I created a design for a coffee bar.  Not everyone has the room to devote an entire wall or area for this type of design. Therefore, I thought a coffee bar cart would perfect for small spaces!  You can leave it where it is, for example, in the corner of the dining room like I have it styled.  If you need to move it, no problem!  Simply move the coffee bar cart to where you need it.  Your guests will love it as much as you do. Here are the must have pieces I’ve put together to create the ultimate coffee bar cart.

Home Project // Modern Gender Neutral Nursery

Modern Gender Neutral Nursery

There’s a slight chance that I’m absolutely squealing right now due to the fact of finally sharing Baby Rishel’s nursery with all of you! I’m so excited to share our gender neutral nursery that we’ve poured so much time and love into. I’m usually an impulse buyer and decorate a space within a week or two. The nursery was a different story.  I was actually hesitant to start because of the neutral, cozy, and perfect space I was envisioning and hoping it would become a reality. We took our time and enjoyed every second of creating this special space for our little one.

Many friends and family members were shocked when they found out we were not finding out the gender. Their first question: How are you going to decorate your nursery?  They were mind boggled especially since Within the Grove revolves around home decor.  Easy answer: regardless if we knew the gender or not, we’ve always wanted a gender neutral nursery.  So here it is! You’ll also be able to see where you can find everything at the end of post.  Enjoy!

We wanted as much natural light in the nursery as possible especially with the grays, whites, and natural wood colors.  As you walk into the nursery you instantly get a calming feeling.  We kept the curtains sheer to help with this!
