Hi! Emily here again from The Wicker House! Today I wanted to stop in and share this picnic table I recently made over. I have always dreamed of having a picnic table in my backyard.  A place where my family can gather around and enjoy meals together in the summer time.

Style House Proverb 31 Girl

Hello City Farmhouse readers. I am so beyond honored to be here and so grateful for Jen for this opportunity! I'm Allie, from Proverbs31girl , and I am so excited to be able to share our sweet little farmhouse with you. Unlike Jen whose on the water (so jealous!) we sit on a quaint three acre old farmstead in the heart of Minnesota. We actually bought the place on a real estate auction (most stressful day of my life!) and have been working on it the last four years to bring this 100 year-old-farmhouse back to it's glory! I would say my style is modern farmhouse, but I'll let you decide for yourself. So if you'd like to join me, I'd love to show you around. Here's a little idea of our … [Read more...]

Why This All Means So Much

Follow Your Dreams Feature

Hi friends! Happy weekend to you! This April will be my official 3 year blogging anniversary. To say I am grateful for this journey is an understatement. Do you ever feel like when "things" are meant to be they just fall into place? Not that you still don't have to work hard because I certainly have poured everything I have into this blog. But I just feel when "things" are destined to be, sometimes your hard work is enough. This ENTIRE journey feels so much sweeter partly because I struggled to find my place in the world, professionally. In high school I was voted Class Day Dreamer, yup sweet, huh! My head was in the clouds dreaming of what I could make, sew, draw, build & be. I wasn't … [Read more...]

Top 12 Modern Farmhouse Barstools

Top 12 Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Barstools Feature

   Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I am currently working on a kitchen + dining room makeover and making tons of progress {cant wait to show you!}. I decided this time around to go for a more modern farmhouse look. I am bringing in lots of textures through metals and warm + weathered wood tones. And combining that with whites + linens and some fun modern art. My goal with my kitchen makeover is to make my traditional kitchen feel less formal and more "farmhousie." I have cream cabinets + black silestone countertops and a HUGE island that fits up to 5 barstools. When we moved in I inherited the 4 white ones that were here and they have been very good to us:). Since then I have had my … [Read more...]

DIY Picture Ledges

DIY Picture Ledges-The Wicker House

Hi! Emily here from The Wicker House and today I want to share with you some  DIY Picture Ledges that I built.  I recently painted our living room (Post Here) and when I was done I was left with a big blank wall. I knew that some picture ledges would be just the thing. This way, I am free to switch my pictures around whenever I wish without worrying about messing up a whole wall arrangement, which is what I had going on previously. This project, even though it looks like something big, was actually super simple to make. I first went to Lowes and picked up three 8 foot long boards; one 1 X 4 and two 1 X … [Read more...]

DIY Herringbone Wall

DIY Herringbone Wall Feature City Farmhouse

  Hi friends! A big happy Thursday to you! My boys have been sick for the past week,  so it has been a little rough around here but I have to say I am getting some things done. I am currently working on my dining room and making some updates, I am replacing the curtains, rug, chairs, maybe paint, art, etc.. Its exciting but also a little nerve racking, I find I lay awake at night when planning a space, trying to visualize different colors, patterns and styling ideas. Do you do that too? To add to that quickly, I found a cool tool over at Valspar, you can upload a picture of a room and you can see how different paint colors will work. I had some fun over there yesterday, you can check it out … [Read more...]
