Home decor can say a lot about who you are as a person. I personally find myself being drawn to a combination of aesthetics, ranging from modern and clean (aka whtie on white on white) to eccentric. One thing that remains consistent throughout my home, however, is my love for rustic decor, chalk paint, and live-edge errythang. I’m not sure if this goes back to the old adage of ‘You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl!’ or if rustic decor is just the one thing that stuck among my ever-changing style, but one thing’s for certain, this recent addition to my rustic decor collection courtesy of The Rustic Butterfly is by far my favourite.
First of all, if you missed it, please check out my unboxing and reveal video. I was so incredibly excited to receive this custom piece in the mail and I think my expression and gushing says it all.

Are you done yet? Pretty amazing, right!?
Here are a few reasons why I love this piece and, more specifically, The Rustic Butterfly.
Tina is so lovely to work with when it comes to bringing your ideas to life. I scoured through her Instagram account trying to find my favourite piece (which was a challenge – there are so many beautiful ones!) and settled on this. I loved the quote, I loved the contrast between the rustic style and the flowing script, and I had the perfect spot for it! The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the font itself because I had fallen in love with another that I had seen on one of her other pieces. Tina assured me that was no problem, and worked to create a custom piece that I love.
There’s nothing I love more than supporting people who are passionate about their craft and who want to share it with others. I love supporting local businesses and small business owners whenever possible, and I encourage everyone else to do the same.
3. They Work in Any Home!
The Rustic Butterfly uses stains, mineral-based paints and chalk paints for a beautiful finish. The wood signs are distressed for an authentic rustic look and they fit into any home or decor style. Since custom is a large part of what they do, they’re able to use specific colours and fonts to go with your colour schemes and preferences.
See? I told you they were awesome!
Thank you again to The Rustic Butterfly for providing us with this piece – it fits so wonderfully into our home and makes it feel just a little cozier.
