This weekend was quite a busy one for me. On Friday, my mom and I met up with some friends down at The Barn Show.
They had lots of lovely and inspirational goodies but I left empty handed because the one purchase I so wanted to make was out of my budget. Here’s it is! An awesome old chicken coop thing-a-ma-jig that had wooden bars across the front!
I pictured it hanging above the desk in our kitchen holding towels and dishes with an apron or two or some pots hanging from the wooden bars. Ahh, I so wish I could have justified the purchase. I have a plan for where I want the kitchen space to go and this would have fit perfectly! A painting my grandfather did of my grandmother’s childhood home (an Iowa farmhouse) hangs in our kitchen and is the color and feel I plan to recreate!
So far we have redone a china cabinet and desk for the kitchen area. We also picked up a lovely vintage wood ironing board that I plan to use as a sideboard next to the dining table.

You can see the details of the china cabinet I turned into a farmhouse pantry here.
Next stop, Hobby Lobby where I picked up a few goodies at 50% off!
The metal bucket containers may be split up around the house for kitchen, craft, or bathroom storage but they fit the look perfectly and at 50% off they were super cheap! The plan for the tool caddy is to mount it on its side for a shelf and towel bar in the bathroom.
I loved the addition of the charcoal color to these linen towels! Very simple yet elegant.
I also picked up these alphabet hooks for Everett’s room. You can see some other elements of his room here.
I love how I can see all the elements coming together in my mind. We already have solid plans for refinishing the table and chairs (just not sure when we’ll get to them!) so you’ll have to stay tuned to see how they turn out!
On Saturday we made the trip to and from New York just to see Newsies on Broadway!
Last but not least, on Sunday we had church in the morning and high school youth group (complete with multi-purpose room bowling!) in the evening.
It was a wonderful weekend! I hope your weekend brought just as many fun adventures!
