I shared an updated house tour earlier this year, and in the past few months I've made some changes as far as decor goes, so I thought it would be fun to share some pictures! The photo above is our mantel that I decorated for fall. Not to toot my own horn, but I love how it turned out! I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with the "gather" wood cutout. I am pretty sure I'm going to stain it, but for now I still think it looks perfectly fine unfinished as is.
The paper banner I made myself using old pieces of scrapbook paper, and I think it adds a lot. The "happy harvest" sign is from Hobby Lobby, and the pumpkins I bought for $3 at Walmart. The wood cutout is from here. (I got the 35x17 size in case you're interested.)
I shared the gallery wall above my desk in my last house post, but since then I've switched some frames out and added a few pictures. Gallery walls have always freaked me out because I am too scared to commit to a design and am worried about hanging everything perfectly. What I did for this is hang up frames one at a time when I get them. I started with my diploma on the far left and added the hospital photo and photo of R. Then I've just kept adding and I think it looks great! I love that I'm not committed to a design but have the freedom to swap things out as I want to.
Of course many of you know about my new purse rack. If you missed that post, see a before/after here. It's been a few weeks now and it's really so handy to have somewhere to hang all of our bags at the end of the day instead of all over the floor.
This is what I've got going on in our guest bathroom. The print is from Minted, and it was hanging there already but I was considering moving it somewhere else (maybe my gallery wall) because I wasn't loving the abstract print in the bathroom. But then I put some (fake) leaves in the vase and added the mason jar with pinecones and mini pumpkins, and the colors of the print matched so I kept it!
So those are a few of the updates I've made lately! One of the things I feel so thankful for is owning a house, because it's something I prayed for (and saved up for) for a really long time. I love being able to decorate it!
