My Farm Chicks Finds 2018

Ahhh. Friends! It was another successful and amazing couple of days at The Farm Chicks this past weekend, and as promised, I am here to show you the haul! This year was extra special to me because it was my daughter’s first time going to the show and I am so very pleased with how well she did and how much fun she had, making my time there that much more enjoyable. We were there for about six hours, and she rocked it the whole time!

I had been looking for a bench for the bottom of our bed for quite a while now but wasn’t desperate enough to just buy any ol’ bench. I wanted it to have character, be unique and to complement the room, and this wooden, hand-crafted bench I found met all the criteria.

This wall in our bedroom was always an “in-progress” wall as I knew I eventually wanted something bigger for this space. The dresser just wasn’t proportionate to the TV and with a larger wall area, something bigger just felt right.

And then it was love at first site. If you are familiar with our home, you know I have an affinity for things with drawers, cubbies, and cabinets, so this was just drool-worthy.

I debated this piece for a while, though, but ultimately pulled the trigger and bought it without even measuring to see if I could fit it in my car. Luckily, it did, and I was able to let out a big sigh of relief.

Once home, it fit so perfectly and I am just so happy with it! It’s an old general store cabinet and I just love finding pieces for our home with a story behind it. It holds all of my husband’s dresser items as well as our bathing suits, cover-ups, and there’s even a drawer for Franklin’s diaper items so we can change him in here. There are also about 4-5 empty drawers, which is nice to know that we have the extra space when needed.

Our plan is to mount the TV and then build something around it to conceal it.

And because this piece isn’t as deep as the old dresser, we actually have more walking room, which is an added bonus. And on the sides of the cabinet are stickers from the original store!

The old dresser (which I actually got at my very first Farm Chicks!) went down into our guest bedroom, along with this little desk I also picked up for this room.

Our outdoor table has remained empty for a while now, so this fifteen-dollar wooden box seemed like a great fit.

And the last thing I got was this metal locker, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Beneath our deck, we have a hot tub and I had been trying to find something to store all of our hot tub supplies, toys, and towels in, and this locker fits those needs perfectly.

Now I just need to store some towels in here and we will be set.

Once my husband and I unloaded the car, I went upstairs to find our sweet Gwyn having a tea party with her new glasses and glitter shaker, while also wearing her new necklace. And the little pretty piece of cloth we thought would be perfect for tea parties turned out to be a pillowcase, which she promptly put on her bed. I think she loves finding special things just as much as her mama!

I just had the best time shopping with my daughter and a couple of good friends at this event and am already excited for next year!
