Rustic Farmhouse Gallery Wall #MintedArt

Thank you Minted for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from Minted, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

 I made some changes to my rustic farmhouse gallery wall in the family room and thought I would share them with you today.  I love mixing rustic elements from a farmhouse with more modern prints.  I found a print at Minted I just had to have and so the change just happened over a few days. 

A rustic farmhouse gallery wall like this one will add character to your farmhouse style home.

Metallic Mason Jar Art

 I have an adorable project for you today y’all.  My metallic mason jar art uses thin sheet metal that can be cut into shapes and embossed.  Such a cute way to show your love for mason jars.  I received the supplies for this project from an event I went to at CHA and the project itself is entered into a contest.  Otherwise the project and opinions on this post are my own.
