DIY Vintage Book Stacks

Hey guys! I hope your week is starting off really good, 
I have two Dr.'s Apt, this week so that always puts a damper in the middle of my week. 
I hate having to stop what I'm doing to routine check ups.. but such is life!
A while back I made these super cute vintage book stacks for my living room and I knew I wanted some for my nursery, you can see that reveal here.
So, I wanted to share with you how I make these super simple DIY uncovered book stacks.

Garden Update: We have Blackberries and Tomatoes!!

Ever since we moved to our property, I have wanted to create a garden of sorts. 
You can read about my original plans here
Once I got chickens however, my ideas changed.
I moved from wanting a flower garden and something just pretty to look at to wanting a more functional farmstead. Don't get me wrong, I still desire is to "look good" but I'm really wanting to embrace the whole till the earth/live of the land... just a little bit...
I can't tell you how happy it makes me to be able to give you an update!

New livingroom rug and a redesigned wall

Ever since I started designing the nursery, 
I knew I needed to make some changes 
to our living room and dining room.... and even our kitchen.
You know when you redo one room and you love it so much and you feel like it makes all the other rooms look like crap? Well that's totally what our nursery did to the rest of our house.
So, I decided to make some changes. Since I am not working anymore and will not return to work after the baby is born, I decided to think about what I love and what I can live with long term, especially since I won't have extra money to be changing things on a whim.... and I love farmhouse decor. I mean I'm trying to run a blog on the basis of "Raising a Farmhouse" and there for a while my home decor was going away from the Farmhouse aspect... 
So when I think about what I love the most about farmhouse decor, it has to be jute rugs, ticking stripe patterns, blue and white china, crystal chandeliers, neutral colors, oh and white pitchers....

Welcome friends! If you are new to my site, thank you for stopping by! I honestly didn't know whether or not I would be able wrap up this project for the final reveal in time or not. With all the shenanigans we have had at the farm with the snakes and the chickens, to Dr.'s Apts. to just last minute set backs, this Spring ORC has truly been a challenge.
But as with most things, anything worth while is usually a challenge!
So, I'm dying to give you a tour of OUR French Farmhouse Nursery!

I made the curtain: Week 5 ORC

I'm a bit late on my 5th week ORC post,
 usually I have my alarm set and I'm ready to hit publish by the start time, 
but this week, not so much!
I'm officially in my third Trimester and I'm starting to feel it... I worked my tail off over the weekend, even tho I feel like I don't have much to show for it, I still worked it off, and come Monday morning, I was like "wait. Hold Up. I'm tired."
So I have been trying to play catch up ever since. This weekend will be another busy weekend, as I scramble to get his room together!
But let's get on with it, and I'll show you what I need to still do...
