“This God—His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord proves true;
He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him”
Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like the Lord was just telling you to “wait”? Waiting on the Lord can be hard, because our time table is not always God’s. But we can look back and see that during those waiting times, He was working everything for our good and certainly for His glory. Without fail, God draws near and invites us to rest in Him! Katy (our chosen daughter) had been living in a one bedroom loft apartment for about a year and a half when she started praying that God would open up doors for her to move. She loves everything about the outdoors and although her small apartment had a great view overlooking our city, Katy felt the itch to find somewhere that would allow a little garden space and give her more of a “home” feel. For over a year, she would visit apartments or rental houses, and just know they weren’t the places God had for her. So she waited. And she prayed. And she kept an open hand. This past July, God placed Katy in the most adorable house- and it just so happens to be perfect for her! She has gone from one small bedroom to three-and you can only imagine the fun we are having decorating!
We started in her bedroom and are so excited to share it with you all today! Come along as we count our blessings!
I found the duvet and shams last spring on Pottery Barn’s website. The mirror was brought from the apartment and serves as a headboard! The lamp was recently purchased at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. Katy had the idea to use a straw hat with a scarf for the wall. Great idea and very inexpensive! I love the added texture of the hat and the pop of color on the neutral walls! Home really is where she hangs her hat!
All you thrifters will probably be envious of this find…Katy bought the floor lamp at a yard sale for $3!!! She used chalk paint to give it a vintage look and we found a burlap shade at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!
The black chest is a piece of furniture that Katy had! Friends gave her a sweet housewarming party a few weeks ago…so many friends made beautiful and thoughtful gifts. One of these is the “it is well with my soul” plaque! I added a platter from a thrift store, a handmade cross, and a blue pumpkin!
We hope you have been inspired and encouraged to decorate, even if your budget seems a little tight! Shop your house, visit the local thrift store, and maybe you could even take up a new found hobby of chalk painting!
We are just getting started in Katy’s house! We will be taking you along as we make her house a home!
