farmhouse on a budget

The Etsy Shop: Printable Wall Art

So admittedly when I made those freebie printables for email subscribers, I was really enjoying myself. Ever since I’ve been obsessed with typography, learning as much about it as I can, and putting together these printables for your home. I’ve decided to take what I’ve been playing with and reopen my Etsy shop with some of the designs I’ve been working on.

Have you ever considered printables for home decor before?

They’re a super affordable way to add style to your home and they’re easy to change out with the seasons (or just when you’re ready for something new).

What if you don’t have a printer or your printer isn’t that great?

No worries! Just send the file off to your local office supply store or print shop for printing (Costco, FedEx Kinkos, Office Depot, Walgreens, etc.). Have them print on a smooth cardstock or matte photo paper. If you have a larger budget consider places like Framebridge where they frame it for you. Really any online printer will also work (mpix.com, Shutterfly, etc.). Don’t let you printer or lack thereof keep you from affordable artwork.

As a thank you for visiting my blog, I want to extend an offer for you to use at my Etsy shop. Buy 3 printable items and get 33% OFF (Now through August 31, 2019). Just use the code BLOGLOVE or click HERE.

If you print and use any of my printables (either the free ones or the ones from Etsy) I’d love to see it in your space. Tag me on Instagram @monicabrownblog or use the hashtag #monicabrownblog. Happy Buying!

21 Farmhouse Finds at Big Lots

Post contains affiliate links.

I’m pretty sure the last time I was in a Big Lots was approximately 9 ish years ago when we lived about a quarter of a mile from one in San Antonio. The last few days I’ve been seeing them pop up in my Instagram and Facebook feeds with sponsored ads and I’ve got to say, I’m seeing some cute things that I would have never expected from a Big Lots. I’m shocked really and just looked up where my nearest Big Lots is because I think a visit is in order this week.

I’m also the queen of a good deal. I almost never buy anything that isn’t discounted or at least that I know isn’t a good value for the money. There are days that I wish I wasn’t that person, but I am which means I spend a lot of time making sure I’ve found the best deal possible on just about everything. The dog chewed up my son’s shoes the other day and I still haven’t found him a new pair, because I just feel like I could do better than any deals I’ve found online or in store so far. It’s a problem I think.

So yeah, if you’re looking for that Farmhouse look in your home, but on a budget, I may have just found a solution for you with these items from Big Lots. There’s more than this online too, but here are just a few of my favorites with that Fixer Upper vibe.
