Hello my sweet friends! I am so excited that you are here. I have ONE MORE engineer Christmas vacation project to share with you, and today’s the day! This one involves wood and a wall also, but it’s not faux shiplap; it’s a lot more modern, and a little more rustic, and it’s typography wall art, so there’s that.
This typography wall art installation is a project that I’ve had dreamed up in my head for quite awhile. Since it wasn’t a quick and easy project, the spark had to burn in my brain for a bit while I waited for an engineer vacay. Whew, that was rough.
Are you ready to see it??
You might remember that Santa brought me those 18 inch letters LAST Christmas. I decided that I wanted stained wood behind them, but neither of us was sold on covering this very large wall, so we opted for a large piece of “wood art.” This is tongue and groove wall paneling cut in to random lengths, and nailed to the wall. The letters are mounted on top.
Have you guessed which room this monstrosity is in yet?
If you guessed our bonus room/teen hang-out space, then you’re right!
This space made its debut with our Christmas Home Tour for 2015, and it’s still in the middle (or maybe the beginning) of a rustic modern farmhouse restyle. Taking down Christmas removed a lot of the color and fun, so I’m working on that.
Remember, there’s still a bed hiding behind the sectional, for when the college boy is home. And a naked lamp for texture, or something like that. 😉
He can almost play foosball with his toes while he lays in bed.
OR, he can gaze up at our handiwork and remember where he belongs. #perfect
Thank you SO MUCH for visiting! Have a great day!
Easy Farmhouse Decor Ideas FOR Fall
Sharing easy farmhouse decor ideas with you is one of my favorite things to do; and today I get to share some of my favorite farmhouse friends hens with you too. We’ve joined forces to bring to you a new monthly farmhouse style blog hop, and today is our first installment, farmhouse vignettes.
Come on, let me introduce you to my fellow farmhouse hens!
I could go on and on about how much I love and admire these talented ladies, but I’m pretty sure you’re ready for some easy farmhouse decor ideas for fall, so when you have some time, head over to my Facebook Page where I have introduced each hen and shared some of her work, AND when you’re done here, be sure to check out their farmhouse fall vignettes too.
I’m sure it’s no surprise that I chose my mantel for our fall vignette post, it’s one of my very favorite spots to decorate. I used mostly stuff I already had, and a couple of bunches of faux leaves I bought with a gift card.
Warm colors (think stained wood, colored leaves, baskets, pumpkins)
Old metal, the rustier the better (I found the rusty metal leaves last year and love them so much)
Books in fall colors (books just add warmth and coziness, choose any color that fits your decor)
Some classic neutrals to keep things grounded (the gray pedestal, white window, black mantel, etc. keep my mantel from looking like a jack-o-lantern threw up on it, if you know what I mean…)
Plenty of texture (woven candlestick, basket, shiny metal, yarn pumpkin…)
Now it’s time for the blog hop? Wait, do hens hop? Scurry maybe? I’m not sure what they do. Cluck…
Just go, ok? Thank you so much for supporting us! We would really appreciate your pins and shares! Just click on the share icons at the top or bottom of this post.
