Wait, that's from Walmart?

I can't remember what I was looking for, but I fell down the online shopping rabbit hole the other day and was incredibly impressed with so many of the items I found at Walmart! I've bought many home decor items there over the years, but they leaned more of a farmhouse style.

Most of these items can fit into any home, but many of them are more modern and less "country" than we've seen in the past. (And no, this is not sponsored, I just like to share good finds!)

First up, all of the pillows! I just kept finding more and more I loved, so I created a quick collage for you (affiliate links included!):

If you love farmhouse style, most of these will work, but they will also fit in with more transitional decor as well. So fun right? I'd use any of these in our home!

I want this pretty table bad! I was going through our house in my head trying to figure out where I could make it work. I can't think of a spot just yet but I'm working on it! ;) Especially for that price!:
Pretty gold double metal console table

This is a matching, taller shelf that is just as lovely. Love the lines and the brass tone:

This wood table leans a little rustic but the design makes it lean a little more modern. This is another one I'd use in our house in a heartbeat!:

I found some simple candle holders that would be so easy to dress up or down in any space. I love these simple gold ones:

Those would look lovely hanging as lanterns too.

This one looks SO Pottery Barn, right? Put some candles in with sand or pretty rocks and you're set:

Their light fixture game has been upped as well. This lantern pendant would be perfect in a foyer -- the classic design will never go out of style:

That one is available in four different finishes as well.

I love the masculine feel of this drum shade pendant -- I'm considering this for our son's room. I purchased a similar light when we moved in but it was smaller than I thought. This would fit so much better:

This lamp is more than I would normally spend but I LOVE it. They have a new modern line that this one is a part of -- you can't go wrong with marble:

This pretty rug is part of that new line as well -- again, it would fit in well with most decor styles:

These are just a few of my favorite that I found! I loved all of these so had to share -- they are definitely upping their game, right? Have you seen any of these items in the stores?

Have a great weekend my friends!

DIY display ledge for spa feel in the bathroom

Hey hey! We've had a sick kiddo this week...it seems he's on the mend finally, thank goodness! We were stuck at home for a few days straight so I worked on a really quick DIY that turned out really cute. 

You may remember the DIY picture ledges I built for our family room: 
Get the Pottery Barn look on walls with DIY picture ledges

You can buy these but they are SOOOO much cheaper to build. And I haven't found them for purchase in the long lengths I made.

I plan to add a few of them to another spot in our house, and I've wanted to build one for our master bath for awhile. These shelves are so versatile -- I love them! 

I'll direct you to my last post about these DIY ledges for the full tutorial, but this is how they are put together: 
How to build DIY picture ledges

This one is made from all scrap wood -- I knew I was painting it so the woods didn't have to match. (I stained my other set.)

I assembled the ledge and then spray painted it black. Then hung it on the wall next to our tub:
