Throw pillows can complete the look of your home, just like the right pair of shoes can make or break an outfit.   They are one of the last accessories to be added, but can set the tone for the entire style of a room.  Because there are many options to choose from at a wide range of prices, adding pillows to your sofa or bed is the easiest and most cost effective way to completely change the feel of the space.  They provide a pop of color, texture, and pattern and can be restyled often to easily refresh your decor.

20 Classic Dark Blue Area Rugs for Any Budget

If you are searching for a dark blue area rug for your home, consider your shopping done for you with these twenty classic rug choices available online.

Fixer Upper DIY Projects for Your Home

A collection of easy DIY projects for the home inspired by Joanna Gaines and the show "Fixer Upper."

It is safe to say that "Fixer Upper" has had an immeasurable impact on many aspects of life.  Aside from just being a fun show to watch, Joanna has inspired so many bloggers, homeowners, and creatives in regards to decorating and DIY projects.  Just think of how popular the terms shiplap and farmhouse have become in the last few years.

As tomorrow will regrettably bring about the end to this amazing show, I decided to take a look back through my own posts that have been created with a "Fixer Upper" style in mind.  It was shocking to start going through countless projects and see just how many things I've made over the years with her signature farmhouse vibe.  I narrowed it down to thirteen, but there were still many more that could have been included.
