Country chic can’t be done without a Mason jar or two. Any room with a country chic décor has something that has been repurposed or looks like it has been repurposed. This style is filled with colors, patterns and a lot of personal touches that make a room feel cozy.

These jars can be used in many different ways and with the right tools, they can be customized to do more than one job. The beauty of a room lies in the details and Mason jar décor creates individual personality into any country chic room.

This living room is a great example of “how we live” and “how we stage” are different. The Before Photo looks like a normal house with young children. The After Photo is how it went on the market. They got it sold in one week!
The best part is now they can go back to living their normal lives. It is a huge help that the difficult task of keeping a young family’s home show ready only lasted a week. They could not have been happier!
