Home. Isn’t that one of the sweetest words there is. You can have a house, an apartment, even a yurt, but it isn’t a home unless there is something to make it so.

Today, I’m delighted to share with you and invite you to take part in the Habitat for Humanity campaign “Home is the Key”.

Farmhouse Drop-Leaf Table Updated

Do you ever do something just because you want to? Like, eat an extra cookie, or take a drive down a country road…just because you want to. Those kinda things are liberties that can break a funk we are in, but the key is limiting it so it doesn’t get out of control. Well…in the last week I managed to acquire 6 large pieces of furniture all at once. ahem. So, you can bet I’ll be firing out some furniture makeovers in the next few weeks. haha! For instance, I’ve always wanted to work on another farmhouse drop-leaf table like this, so I bought it. Nuff said.Vintage Drop-Leaf Table Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

DIY Charging Station from Thrifted Box

Call me quirky, but I find it a thousand times more fun to make my own decor rather than to go out and buy it. Two reasons (1) it’s kinda like therapy (2) ain’t nobody gonna have one like it – tee hee. When I spied this little box at the thrift store, I saw the potential had to became a DIY charging station. Stay with me now.

Farmhouse Style Decor ~ How to add it to your home

You know I love me some farmhouse style decor. Do I live on a farm? No. Do I want to live on a farm? YES. Funny thing is I was born on a farm (and act like it too – ha!) and lived in rural life until I left the nest. So many of us adore the simplicity of farmhouse decor, but don’t live on a farm. However, we don’t have to wait for that “farm in the sky” to have it.  Whether it’s good ol’ fashioned farmhouse or modern farmhouse, you can get the look for less. Let me show you what I mean. (I have a video for you!)

Want to add farmhouse style decor to your home, but lack a big budget? It's easier than you think. Come see at Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

First, let me say that country living is in my bones and one day I will get there whether here or in heaven. God hasn’t seen fit to bless me with that opportunity yet, so I am making the most of my blessings.

Some of the ways I have incorporated my passion into my home is by Read more
