My Style Series : Industrial

I have always had an eclectic style and haven’t really been able to identify with just one look.  Whether it be with the furniture I paint or decorating my house, I just can’t stick to one look.  I enjoy so many aspects of different styles that I feel like I need a little of everything to make me happy!  ;)

One style I’ve really been identifying with lately is the industrial look.  I am in LOVE with wire baskets and any form of rustic or weathered wood mixed with metal.  Just ask my husband…I’m a little obsessed right now!

My birthday was a couple weeks ago and I got mostly money as gifts.  I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it until I had the bright idea to make a trip to HomeGoods.  Why didn’t I think of that earlier, right?

I’m pretty much DYING over the bench (above) in our bedroom!  It is really weathered and beat up, but I totally love it that way.  I really don’t like to buy furniture from stores anymore since I became started refinishing/painting/DYI-ing furniture, but I asked my hubby if we could recreate this same piece for the price and he said probably not.  So, I was okay with spending the money on it.  Sometimes you just have to do that, right?

The basket under the bench and the basket under my vintage secretary are also both from HomeGoods.  I bought them to just “try them out”, but I love both of them, so I’m keeping them!   The letter “A” is actually from Target.  It was on clearance a while back and I snatched it up once I saw it at 50% off.  It was an ugly orange wood, but I used this faux zinc treatment on it to make it look more industrial…and unique!

The mirror below is also from HomeGoods.  I know it looks a little silly just chillin’ on my huge wall, but I still love it.  I have been wanting to do a gallery photo wall in the living room, but haven’t been able to commit to anything.  I’m letting this mirror be the jumping off point now, so hopefully it gives me some inspiration to get started on that project!

One last shot of our fun little bench.  Oh, I just love it so much!  It’s a keeper for sure!

If you’d like to see more industrial inspiration make sure to take a peek at my “My Style : Industrial” pin board on Pinterest.  And feel free to follow me on Pinterest to keep up with all the fun things I find to add to the board!

That’s my little bit of industrial style injected into my home.  I’m hoping to share more of my favorite styles with you all soon as I find more pieces to add more character to my home with.

Disclosure: This post was not sponsored by HomeGoods, although I’d be more than happy to do one if they would like to send me some money to go shopping with!  ;)
