Modern Farmhouse Style Lighting for Less than $100Is anyone still as in love with the modern farmhouse style as I am?! It’s been going strong for a while now, and if you had a chance to read Home Decor Style Trends; Design Experts Favourites written by Sam Franklin from A Happy Home In Holland, you might have noticed that a large majority of the bloggers, including myself, still had a thing for mixing farmhouse style into their current design trends!

That being said, I love to DIY as much farmhouse decor as I can! I have learned over the years though, that some times it can be more affordable to buy than to DIY.

Learn how to make your very own DIY Giant Patio Clock!

Have you noticed lately, that everyone’s clocks seem to be a lot bigger than they used to be?! They are huge these days, and in my opinion, just beautiful!

The only problem is, that they tend to be on the more expensive side… That’s why I decided to DIY my very own giant patio clock, out of an old tabletop!

This summer, I’ve really been trying to make my porch and patio the perfect outdoor family relaxation space…

My budget was pretty tight this year, so I pretty much tried to DIY just about everything that we needed out there, including my latest addition, my DIY Giant Patio Clock!

The tabletop was in kind of rough shape, and was also the perfect size to hang right above my DIY Bench, so I decided to go for it! Continue reading

Guess what! Farmhouse decor design style is still going strong! Whether you are a true lover of farmhouse decor, or not really that into it, chances are that you probably already own something of this style, perhaps without even realizing it… I can’t say for sure, but I think that farmhouse is one of those classic design styles that is here to stay!

If you think about it, you can have a straight up farmhouse decor design style, or you can take this style and mix it with another… modern, classic, rustic, traditional, industrial, french, coastal… just about anything!
