Inspired by Funky Junk Interiors 12′ farm desk made from pallets, I dreamed up my own 11′ diy rustic wood desk. I love the look of Donna’s reclaimed pallet desk but decided to go with a wide pine board that we had laying around the yard. For the legs, I wanted something organic and flowing so my sweet man let me use the cedar logs he’s been saving for a couple of years.

When I first shared my idea with Mark, he didn’t think it’d look good but we cut the cedar logs anyway. To his surprise, he really liked the look of the table and it was very stable to boot.

Mom wanted to replace her evergreen wreath with something that can be used year round. She is in search of something around 24″ that will look good no matter what season. Since it was cold and we didn’t want to leave the house, we headed over to Amazon to window shop. We found three cool wreaths that we wanted to share with you.

I can’t help it. I fell in love with Andrea Brugi’s work the moment I first laid eyes on it. His rustic yet contemporary style is intriguing.  It has a simplistic feel with old world charm yet fits perfectly in the modern home.

driftwood-heart I live in Maine about 2 miles from the beach where my family spends many days in the sand collecting driftwood, sea glass, shells and other treasures. What I love is that even after you remove something from the beach, it still holds the magic of the ocean. Something, I love to feel in my home.

Recently, I was inspired by this amazing driftwood heart that I pinned on Pinterest. It’s beautiful, contemporary and rustic all at the same time.

Although, I have a rather large driftwood collection, I don’t have enough to create a piece of art this size. So I went to Amazon in search of driftwood home decor. Here are a few of my finds:
