Wait Until You See What I Bought and How I Styled It

Looking for home decorating ideas? Wait until you see what I bought and how I styled it in this week’s Friday Favorites Update.

If you’ve been following along with things I’ve been purchasing for the new house over the last several weeks, I wanted to update you on how I styled some of them.

And so far?

I’m pretty happy with my purchases.

We hit some bumps along the way with some of the products, but overall, I’m really happy with my purchases.

Wait until you see what I bought and how I styled it!

What I Bought and How I Styled It

I think 10 weeks have passed since I started sharing my Friday Favorites post.

Some weeks I bought a lot and other weeks I was just shopping around.

I’ve told you about some of the purchases and how they look but haven’t gotten around to really showing you.

Now I say this with a caveat – this is how things are styled today in my home.

As you know, we’ve been updating rooms with a fresh coat of paint, so things may get moved around or restyled, but for now, things are really coming along!

So here’s what I bought and how I styled it!

How I Styled the Baltimore Solid Wood Drum Table by Birch Lane

I searched high and low for round coffee tables that would pair well with the sectional sofa in our family room.

And I knew THIS coffee table would not only look great with the sectional, but incredible overall in the family room after we painted it.

I ordered it and seriously, it arrived in like 2 days. It was so fast!

The coffee table is very well made and there are some color variations in the wood to give it a little depth and dimension.

And I love it even more now that the room is white.

I think it looks better in our home than in the original picture, don’t you?

How I Styled Vintage Amber Glasses

With my new dining room, comes new table decor ideas!

So I purchased some vintage amber glasses that look very similar to THESE.

I absolutely love the color and think they look amazing with my crystal chandelier and this brass hammered ice bucket.

How I Styled the Provitin Long Reclining Lounge Chair

Now that we have a pool, we needed to purchase some lounge chairs!

I found THESE and love them!

We set up a few to use on our back porch by the zen garden so we could enjoy the soothing sounds of the koi pond.

They are very comfortable and will be great by the pool when we open it up in May.

So I’ll have to update you on these more then.

But for now, I’m really pleased with them and can’t wait to use them all by the pool.

Styling the Mink Textured Pot

Be still my heart because I am LOVING this textured pot! It’s gorgeous!

The texture and the dimension look amazing here at the farmhouse,

I ordered the medium because originally, I wanted to use it in my family room.

But instead?

I used it in both my dining room and front entry hall.

Where do you like it better?

Rocker Jefferson Rocking Chair

Now that we have a big front porch, we needed a few rocking chairs to enjoy the morning sunrise.

I was looking at real wood ones at first, but Chris and I decided to go with the poly ones so there was less maintenance.

We have Adirondacks in Vermont made from polywood that are really well made and pretty comfortable to sit in.

After reading the reviews on these, I went with it!

When they each arrived, neither had the hardware required to build the chairs.

Don’t get me wrong, they were suppose to be in the boxes but weren’t.

I immediately reached out to Wayfair and they got right on it. I had the parts for both a few days later.

And you know what?

We love the rockers!

Gabriella Pot

I started some new pothos plants and need pretty containers for them.

Haven’t bought anything for them yet, but found this gorgeous container in the shape of a bust.

Wouldn’t pothos plant look so cool trailing out of this one?

So I bought it.

I thought I would use it more in the family room after updating it.

But I decided to move it to the dining room for an Italian dinner party and it hasn’t left since.

Antiqued Iron 3-Piece Folding Bistro Set

After Chris and I spent a Saturday night touring each of the gardens to get a sense of how we wanted to enjoy them, we thought it would be a great idea to get a small table and chairs that we could move around.

I found this gorgeous antiqued iron 3-piece bistro set that folds, so moving it around couldn’t be easier!

Isn’t it so pretty?

I’m sensing some cozy sunset dinners in the gazebo this spring!

This set will fit perfectly there.

But for now, I’m using it on the front porch. It’s given us some extra seating options and we are loving it!

Giacinto Olive/Charcoal Area Rug

This rug is really pretty but I have to say the color is much different in person that on line

Don’t get me wrong, it looks very similar but it pulls a lot more green than beige.

I bought it for my living room but I’m not sold on keeping it there just yet.

Giacinto Olive charcoal rug

This area rug is pretty vintage looking and still looks very neutral.

When we eventually paint this room in the fall, I’ll see how it all looks.

Cushion Cover with Tassels

I’ve been lightening up the living and the family rooms with light, neutral-textured pillows.

And I love the ones I found on H&M.

They were reasonably priced, very well made, and looks great!

THESE pillow covers look great with my dark sectional, have a boho vibe, and look perfect in the family room and living rooms.

  1. Hi Stacy~
    I love getting your emails and have saved a lot of your ideas and finds. My therapy is to go junking, which means No junk, but always find great deals! Hope you are enjoying your new home but loved the previous one more. I just built a new home last year so I know how much work is involved in making it your own. Take care and thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi Stacy,

    Love all your new things, but love the textured pots. I like the pot on the piano more than the table. Really enjoy your blog and have gotten some nice ideas for my home. So look forward to receiving your emails. Thanks.

    1. Thank you so much Barbara! I really love it more on the piano too! I think I’m keeping it there for a while…

  3. Stacy,

    I love it all. The coffee table is very pretty. Love the rug too.

    Your new home is coming together beautifully.

  4. So many fun finds Stacy. The textured pot is so beautiful. And the rocking chairs look perfect on your new porch.

  5. Love all of your great finds. My favorites are the knobby vase and the fold up bistro tables. It all looks great in your space.
