15 Affordable Fixer Upper Inspired Chalkboard Items


I’m a huge fan of Fixer Upper and love the farmhouse look!
I also love rounding up fun home decor items and pinning them to Pinterest.
It’s sort of like shopping but without the, you know, spending money part. haha.
If you’ve been wanting to find those antique looking
pieces that aren’t too pricey, here you go!
I rounded up some affordable chalkboard themed items that you can work
into your home decor and not break the bank.
Lots of metal, wood, rope and hooks!
Only one of the items is pricier (for me)… But I love the antique look
of the produce crates so I thought it was worth including!

Easter Morning Tea Party – Inspiration Board

One of my favorite things about motherhood is celebrating holidays together!
Over the years I’ve always teamed up with the Easter Bunny to throw a little tea party on Easter Morning
and Celebrate Jesus with some sweet treats before going to Church!
I thought I would round up some fun items from Shop Sweet Lulu that would be perfect for a tea party on Easter
but it could also be perfect inspiration for a birthday or brunch theme!
This was one of the first party sites I discovered and I’m still in love with everything on the site.
(There are affiliate links in this post, thanks for the love! Enjoy these fun finds!)

I have a few of these items myself.. follow me on instagram to see how
I’m working in the farmhouse look without breaking the bank.

 I know a lot of people struggle with wanting to get their house perfectly perfect
before having friends over for celebrations or gatherings,
Don’t wait to enjoy your home with loved ones! I’m slowly working in the farmhouse
touches to our house and loving how it’s coming together.
If I waited to have my house perfectly decorated and clean I would never have people over. lol.

party planning lovers that they can make it happen too!
