Hearth & Hand with Magnolia at Target


The Best of Hearth & Hand with Magnolia at Target

Just in case you haven’t heard, Chip and Joanna Gaines have partnered with Target to create a beautiful new homeware line! It released yesterday in stores and online, and I actually stopped by Target twice to check out some of the items. It was great to be able to finally see all these pieces in person! I was blown away with the quality, the cohesion, and the affordability of the new Hearth & Hand™ line, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite picks from the collection. Just click on each item to shop!

Budget Bedroom Refresh – Planning and Inspiration

It can be really difficult to ever make an apartment feel finished, especially because it’s usually a temporary space. Apartments can also be difficult because you’re limited in what you can do to change the space. Since we’ll probably be living here for awhile, I’m on a mission to make our place feel like home. To accomplish this, I have a few things planned. First up is this budget bedroom refresh! Today’s post is going to be all about the planning, since the project will likely take some time. Let’s get started!

Our Bedroom Now

Here’s what our room looked like at the very beginning of this project. (We’ve done a bit since then, but it’s not quite done yet.) Nothing is wrong with the room, but it doesn’t quite look or feel like I want it to. We have lots of “horizontal space” in our room, which means that the headboard and dressers often have a lot of stuff on them and start to look cluttered. I’m going to focus on clearing that so the space looks a bit cleaner. The room also seems a bit plain; there aren’t really any accessories or decorations in the room. That’s one thing I’m hoping to change that will hopefully make a big difference!

A Simple Easter Tablescape

I’m quite excited to share this post with you all, because I’ve been working on it for a while! With Easter coming up, I’ve begun switching out some of our wintery decorations for some springier ones. I love a good tablescape, so I wanted to create one for Easter that was pretty and seasonal but not overdone. I re-used a few things from my wedding and picked up a few things from Target, and I’m really happy with how my simple Easter tablescape came out!
