We’ve been long-time fans of eBay, even before they were sponsors of ours, so it was so fun to be asked to put together a curated landing page with our favorite finds and buys on eBay! You can check it out right here and we’ll try to update it frequently.
Our latest buy? Our new 65″ Samsung Frame TV! This is the third one we’ve bought (we bought a 43″ for our last bedroom, a 55″ for the cabin and a 65″ for this bedroom) so it’s safe to say, we like the Frame TV. I searched and searched for the best price and one day a 2019 version popped up on the Daily Deals page and we snagged one!
The frame TV comes in a few sizes, and they come with a really close-hanging wall mount that really helps the “This is a piece of art” feel. It’s flush to the wall! It doesn’t come with the magnetic frame though. So if you want something other than black (they have a light wood beige–the one we have, a white and a dark walnut), you’ll have to order that separately. We got both the TV and frame for it on eBay for the best price I could find on the internet!
The frame just snaps right on. It’s magnetic and easy to install. I’m not even sure you could call it installing. The TV on the other hand–to hang it with no wires showing might take an hour tops.
Our room was already outfitted with a recessed in-wall cable management system. They are pretty common, and make it easy to hang your tv, and feed the wire to the bottom of the wall and plug it in with no wires showing. But if you don’t already have one, eBay sells a really great brand (this one) and install is as easy!
(Because our wall already had the system in place, we couldn’t take photos of the process, but this is a straight forward tutorial!)
If you are unable to make holes in your wall or just aren’t comfortable with it, the Frame TV only has one very thin, clear cord that you wouldn’t really notice that much. It connects to a box and that’s what you need to worry about disguising. We put ours in one of the dresser drawers. We drilled a small hole in back of the dresser and fed the cords inside.
The box sits in the drawer and is kind of the brain behind the TV. The remote works with radio frequency, so the box can be hidden completely and still work just fine.
We don’t have have cable, but this is a smart TV and it’s loaded! Hulu, Netflix, AmazonPrime, YouTubeTV and more.
You can even browse the internet on the TV! Perhaps what it’s most famous for is the art selection. It has a ton of free art and you also get a trial subscription to their expansive for-purchase gallery for a limited time, too.
You can also, upload your own photos for display! I’ve used family photos or bought digital prints from places like Juniper Print Shop to display in the past and love the flexibility!
And with that, I have to ask–what are you watching these days? Chris and I love to wind out the days watching a show. We are currently catching up on the last season of The Good Place (oh how we love that show). But also, after years of our friends telling us we HAVE to watch Survivor, we finally caved and binged season 7, 10 and 13 and are currently watching 15–they were right! It’s so addicting! Anything else we should add to the list?

Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
