Country Charm

20140118-134237.jpgMaybe it was our trip to Wyoming or Rob’s hunting gear lying around the house, but I am loving the country style when it comes to home decor. I must not be the only one because I found some great items and Target, Home Goods and Hobby Lobby. The wall decor above is from Home Goods and is the first piece of art that Rob and I have both liked. It’s masculine with the deer, but girly with the floral border and rustic details. 20140118-134247.jpgTarget never disappoints. I found these antler candle sticks on sale for only $7! I paired them with the gold, metallic candles to add some glitz and glam.  20140118-134312.jpgI also love burlap accents and the rustic feel it gives to the room. This vase is from Hobby Lobby. You can’t beat their 50% off deals!20140118-134322.jpgThe white table was my latest DIY project. It used to just be boring, brown wood, but I painted it white and distressed it with sand paper to fit the vintage look I was going for.20140118-134337.jpg

DIY banners are a fun decoration for any occasion, especially when made with pretty ribbons and beautiful calligraphy. Burlap banners, which have also been popular on Pinterest, add country charm and are a favorite of mine.
