{ Cozy Multidimensional Coffee Table }

Like the ongoing theme of  this summer this week is flyingggg by!! Wednesday already.. Today's post is a little different but in the best way! After switching out the fireplace in yesterday's post { scroll back one post} I was left with this fireplace box! You see Mark junked this box from a neighbor years ago & we've always had it on top of our tiny cottage fireplace..Well fast forward we don't need it now with the bigger fireplace! I've always loved the detailing, storage & wanted to have it on display!  I set it on our chunky wood coffee table & never thought anything about it...After the painting on the new fireplace was done, I went to grab it to store in my decor room but stopped... I LOVED it on the coffee table! It added fresh white, height & that cottagey cozy vibe + storage!! Well, I decided to style it quickly & share today for you guys!!!! Come see more below..


I love how much height it adds to the room & breaks the sold wood up!! The layering adds that extra cozy factor..It's also great because we still have plenty of room!


The simple white down pillows on the sofa, vintage toolbox & faux plants complete this space! 


Mixing in vintage warm wood furniture pieces has been  my favorite!! I wouldn't call my style farmhouse but more • vintage cottage cabin• . I love that my style can be detected..branding almost if you will! Always be true to your style, not what's trendy!


I hope you loved this post!! I'm always trying to create new FRESH content + ideas with you guys...Putting yourself & ideas out in the world isn't easy, but can be so fun & rewarding!! I hope you like this multidimensional  coffee table idea/ look. 

Happy Wednesday!

{ Vintage Summer Sunflower Fireplace Makeover}

Happy Tuesday! I got a little sidetracked yesterday with some house projects, cleaning & business stuff, so no usual Monday post! Today, I'm back fresh with a new 3 in 1 type of post!! This past weekend was busy for us to say the least...lots of driving, niece time, new truck for Mark & of course thrifting / makeovers! Saturday after signing papers for Mark's new truck we decided to take a back road because of construction...Well on that route we came across a little road sale & I spotted a fireplace!! It had lots of damage to the bottom from vermin or water, but still worked & the nice  elderly man wanted to gift it to me for f r e e..I ended up donating $10 & off we went!! Fast forward to Sunday..I had a sponsorship due with my favorite company HomeGoods!! I grabbed a few new items & started painting the fireplace as soon as I got home... This makeover DIY was my inspiration for the goods I picked up!!  Although I loved our tiny white fireplace, I wanted a bigger sturdier clean lined one for the living room!!  Come see more below....


Some of the items I picked out at HomeGoods!! I swear they never let me down with their selection of decor. Everything from modern to glam & authentic vintage mixed in!


While shopping I had this fireplace in mind!! I wanted fresh vintage late summer vibes...


The main item was this rustic sunflower print!! I spotted it & grabbed it right away..It was the only one & it had everything I was looking for to go with the new white fireplace makeover! Plus, my dad loves sunflowers, so it definitely was coming home with me!! I love the deep yellow & orange for summer♡. 


The cozy green & cream side chairs couldn't be more perfect with this sunflower mantel!
I picked up the • magazine• basket last minute by accident actually... I moved the cart to the basket isle for pictures & picked this basket up as it was falling...Turned it around & I had to have it!! Cute, practical & I love the texture/ black rope lettering. I threw some of my favorite new long stem greens from HomeGoods in it with my go-to home magazines...



I'll be blogging our coffee table soon in here too. It feels so much cleaner & cozier in here!!


Something about sunflowers that are so bright & cheery and always remind me of summer days!!

What do you guys love best about this makeover/DIY?
• What do you love to decorate your mantel with for summer?

Happy Tuesday!
