Spring Vignette Hop + Free Watercolor Printable

City Farmhouse Spring Printable Feature

  Hi friends! I always get excited to partner with some of my favorite girls & be a part of these fabulous printable & vignette hops hosted by Kristen from Ella Claire. Today its ALL about Spring & that makes me happy as I look out my window and see snow. This winter has been a tough one in NY, lots of white stuff and very cold temps, which means more time inside than out. The thing I look forward to most in Spring is my renewed sense of adventure & getting to explore the great outdoors in all its glory once again with my family. With that in mind I created a fun printable with a watercolor background I painted with my boys. Isn't that what life's about, enjoying every … [Read more...]

Style House-The Wicker House

The Wicker House Feature

Hello City Farmhouse Friends! I'm Emily from the blog, The Wicker House. I am so glad to be here today as a contributor for City Farmhouse.

Our home was built in 1924, but was fully remodeled prior to us buying it. So we really got the best of both worlds: the charm of an … [Read more...]

Rustic Chic Master Bedroom Reveal Feature

Hi friends! First off I just want to say thank you, for all of your support!! Whether you have been with me from the beginning or just began following, I am so grateful.

I had only a few visitors a day when I began, really. And to be honest at the time it was enough. This journey has far exceeded my expectations, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for the time you share here with … [Read more...]

My Ikea Ektorp Slipcover Sectional 2 Years Later

Ikea Ektorp Sectional 2 years later feature City Farmhouse 2

Hi friends! Today is the day, I am finally answering all your questions about my Ikea Ektorp Slipcovered Sectional!! I guess I should start from the beginning.... When we bought this house 4 years ago we had a brown chenille sofa from Calico Corners & another mocha one from Z Gallerie. They were bought for different rooms in our old house in Colorado. But because this room was so large we had to use them "temporarily" together . I knew a white slipcovered something would be perfect for our large family room but trying to convince my husband would be the challenge. At the time my boys were 1 & 5 and he kept saying "I don't think so Jen, could you imagine messy fingers & juice in … [Read more...]
