DIY Whitewashed Scalloped Farm Style Bench

Recently we completely remodeled our bedroom . My husband built our bed and I wanted a pretty scalloped bench at the end of our bed. So my hubby designed and built a bench and I painted it.

HOPE Hallway

I love that the first thing that you see when you walk into our home is the word HOPE. I like to call it my HOPE hallway.
My desire is that when people enter our home that the word hope would speak volumes to them. 

My New Obsession: Scandinavian Interior Design


When I think Scandinavian design, if your like me, you automatically think... fill in the blank, its a four letter word, starts with an I. Ok fine I'll tell you, you think IKEA. Right? Maybe its just me but Ikea made it popular to newbies such as myself. Ikea was my intro into this new world, plus we were a young family looking to fill our apartment up with some furniture and the prices were great and still are. However, the more I looked into Scandinavian design the more I fell in love with its concept of clean lines, pale colors and natural fabrics. These natural materials and lighter background colors with an occasional surprising burst of color found its origins in places like Norway, Denmark and Iceland. These regions had long winters and shorter days so they decorated with lighter, brighter and cleaner design. Hey I understand, I'm from Chicago where winters are brutal and long and the last thing you want to come home to is a dark and gloomy house.

Rustic Boys Bedroom - Part 5 - DIY Bed & Charcoal Dresser


This bed was made by my hubby, we wanted a taller bed so that eventually we can build storage for the bottom of the bed. 

Rustic Boys Bedroom - Part 4- Hanging hats


My son is obsessed with shoes and hats as a result he has hats everywhere.
So I figured might as well make them a part of the d├ęcor and display them, smart huh?

Rustic Masculine Bedroom - Part 3 - Framed Vintage Airplane & Gallery Wall



I found these really cool 1972 amateur photographer's photos at an estate sale. As soon as I saw them I immediately thought, these would make great wall art for someones home.

The pictures were already professionally matted so I used the sturdiness of the matted picture and just attached these wood pieces to create a frame. To get the cool brown color on the wood my husband used the bernzomatic technique. The bernzo technique is used by burning the wood then sanding and sealing it. Aren't they cool?
