My New Farmhouse Wall Print by Jibe Prints

I've joked a time (or twelve) on here about how I'm super indecisive when it comes to making decisions, particularly ones related to how I want to decorate my home.  I find that this is especially true when it comes to wall decor, however, I have noticed that I tend to gravitate towards prints from small businesses and I'm super fond of word art, handlettering, quotes, etc... The goods news is our new dining room wall art from Jibe Prints meets all of these requirements and I'm head over heels in love with it!

I ordered the "Family is Everything" print in the 36"W x 24"H size and just love how it fills in the empty space above our dining room hutch. Let me just say I've lost a lot of sleep pondering over what to do with that spot. Okay, so maybe I haven't lost sleep over it but seriously it's allowed me to move on to more important things like "How will Rick and his crew take down the Saviors?"

Two of my favorite things about Jibe Prints is that the background on a lot of their collections are made to resemble that of shiplap, so they totally have that farmhouse charm that I adore. Secondly, you can personalize the prints with your family name, initials, or special dates.  I'm thinking if I was new bride or homeowner I would totally love one of these prints as a unique gift!



I found the whitewashed wood frame at Michaels and I think it pairs well with the rustic look of the wall print.

How to Find Similar Home Decor Items for Less

How many times have you spotted a coffee table or light pendant on Pinterest or Instagram that you fall in love with only to discover that your said dream item is way out of your budget?  Well today I wanted to share the two tricks I always use to find less expensive options of my favorite pieces! 
These little shopping hacks have been a game changer when it comes to decorating my home and it has saved me a ton of money.

So what's my first shopping tool for when I'm looking for the luxe look for less?
Pinterest's Visual Magnifying Tool! This is probably one of my favorite features on Pinterest.

How to Use Pinterest's Visual Magnifying Tool to Find Similar Home Decor Items for Less

1. Pull up the pinned image of your choice and then click the magnifying glass in the top right corner. If the image you are trying to source is on Instagram or some other media, you can always save it to your phone and upload it to Pinterest.

2. Then drag the selection box over the part of the pin you are interested in. 
For example, I really liked this chandelier hanging in Zevy Joy's gorgeous dining room. Once you select the item that has caught your eye, Pinterest will pull up similar items for you.

3. Start perusing and clicking on the images to the right to find the sources and prices for your item. Some photos may link to a blog or other non-retailer pages, but you should have a handful that will actually lead to stores that sell the item (or similar ones) for you to purchase if you so desire.


The above example is a real-life search I conducted a few weeks ago while on the hunt for a new chandelier. I follow Zevy Joy on Instagram, so I know that she originally purchased her light from Pottery Barn. PB sells their chandelier for $499, which isn't exactly that expensive for a new dining room light fixture but you guys, I love the challenge of finding copycat decor for less. Call me weird, but seriously it's an obsession!

Thanks to the Pinterest Visual Magnifying Tool, I was able to find a very similar chandelier at Lowe's for just $99. The cherry on top was I had a 11% off coupon and scored the light for $89 (plus free shipping) That's a whopping $410 difference between Pottery Barn's version and Lowes (that's not even including the tax or shipping cost that may have accrued on the PB order). I'm no good at math but I'm pretty sure that is one hot deal and most importantly, I still have lots of money left over for Starbucks!


Now onto my second trick....Google!


How to Use Google to Find Similar Home Decor Items for Less

1. Copy the title of the item you're interested in. So for example, I found these set of chairs on Overstock.com and would like to see if this is the best price for them,so I highlight and copy their name.

2. Open up Google, and paste the name/title in the search box. Your search results will show you if the item (or similar items) are cheaper any where else. As you can see below, the same chairs from Overstock are on sale for almost $170 less at another retailer.

I've been surprised at how many times I have found the same item on multiple sites at a variety of prices! This was the case for when we recently purchased Little B's big boy bed. I originally spotted it on Overstock, but after a quick Google search, discovered the same exact bed was offered at a lower price on Amazon, Walmart, and Wayfair. In the end, Wayfair won my business because of their free shipping and first time customer coupon discount (always look for extra discounts online or by joining the site's mailing list!)



Of course, always make sure to keep the cost of shipping in consideration. Sometimes the cheaper option isn't always the best deal if the retailer charges an expensive shipping or handling fee.

Now let's go shopping!

Barn quilts are hardly a new concept, a matter of fact they've been around for hundreds of years but I've been noticing them remerging as a fun, farmhouse wall decor trend lately and I admit I'm quite smitten with them!

Printable barn quilt


Incase you're scratching your head wondering what a barn quilt is (trust me, I was at one time too), they are essentially a large hand-painted piece of wood, typically comprised of geometric shapes, made to resemble a single quilt block. Back in the day people would hang these on the side or fronts of their barns. There's even a whole barn quilt trail you can tour if your heart so desires!

 I thought these printable banners would be a perfect way to honor this tradition and to add a little farmhouse charm to your home.

I created two different barn quilt patterns and designed a pair in black too. If you wanted, you could frame all of these to create a fun farmhouse style gallery wall!

How to make a wood hanger for your banner.

Supplies Needed

Balsa Wood ( I purchased this project bag so I could make a few banners)
Upholstery or Heavy Duty Stapler
Scissors or Paper Trimmer
Wood Stain
Twine

1. After downloading and printing your barn quilt on cardstock, take your strip of Balsa wood and line it up at the top edge of your cardstock and mark the width you'll want to cut your banner. I also trimmed off a little at the bottom of my cardstock right below the barn quilt pattern.

2. Stain your Balsa wood and allow to dry.

3. Once the wood has dried, cut your twine and attach the twine and banner to the back of the wood with an upholstery or heavy duty stapler.

Really simple, right? I love finding ways to add that farmhouse charm without breaking the bank.
