If you saw my previous post, then you might remember that one of my goals for this year is to get organized. For us, that doesn't only mean organizing spice drawers and linen closets, but to get the rooms in our house finished. There will always be a project of course, but my focus is to get them to a place where I have a better idea of what we need in that room in order for it to function. This month, I have been really focusing on...

As the new year rolled in, I thought about what I really want to focus on this year for 2019. I often have the same goals which is usually to eat healthier and exercise more regularly. While that is true and I do want to do all those things, I'd say my main focus for the year is to get organized. We moved into our home 3 years ago and we still have boxes scattered in the basement from that move. We've had a lot happen in those...

I can't believe November is almost over and we're only a little over a month away from Christmas. This month has flown by! Within the last week or so, I started breaking out some of the Christmas decor. I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year so I figured, why not get a head start? The truth is, I'm an early decorator ;) When my husband and I were first married (pre-kids), I used to wait until the day after Thanksgiving. We would go get our real tree on...

It's October and Fall is here! I love Fall in New England. The colors are beautiful this time of year. I've been slowly adding Fall decor throughout our house and the dining room was the most recent room I decorated. I decided to go with a mostly neutral color palette with hints of purples and peachy oranges. My mom gave me a set of purple gobblet glasses 8 years ago when we bought our first house. Those glasses were my inspiration for this tablescape. I placed a bunch of...

Hi Friends! It has been quite some time since I posted! I hope you all had a wonderful summer! Ours was great and busy! We spent a week in our favorite vacation spot in Ogunquit, ME and the rest just feels like it flew by. We have lots of exciting things happening over here at Graceful Farmhouse. When we had the plumber here to hook up the final items for our master bathroom, we asked him about a leaky faucet in one of our other bathrooms which then snowballed...

Yesterday, I posted about the state of our master bathroom when we moved in 2 1/2 years ago. If you missed it, you can go back and check it out here. Today, I am talking about the plans we have for it. We went with Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore for the wall color. We wanted a warmer gray tone and everything to be light and airy feeling. For the shower tile, we chose white subway tile for the walls, a hexagonal pattern tile for the shower floor and white...

One of the simplest ways to freshen up a space is to change out the throw pillows. Now, this would get costly and clutter up your home real fast if you just bought a pillow every time. However, one of my favorite ways to change out throw pillows is to use pillow covers instead of actual pillows where possible. My go-to stores for this are Hobby Lobby and H & M. Often times, Hobby Lobby has them on sale for 50% off which brings down the price to just...

Last Summer, I decided to refinish our dining room table. If you've been following the blog, then you might remember that I tend to start one project that leads to another. Well, the dining room was no exception. Since we had to take the table out of the room for refinishing, it felt like a good time to paint the whole room. Here is what the dining room looked like when we first moved in. The lighting is a bit dark, but the walls were two different shades of pale...
