Farm House Warming

Much love to all the friends and family who came out the farm to help us celebrate.

I love free stuff : My dining room hutch

I pride myself on being able to find a use for just about anything. When I look around my house, I see 2 pieces of furniture that I actually purchased new. Most items were quietly sitting in a basement or a room that didn't get used until their owners decided to pass them my way. The hard part is that after I redo them, they try to take them back!

Bathroom semi-redo

The artist in me has a hard time not planning how I will decorate rooms. But while we go through the renovation process it's only logical not to paint, hang photos, etc  *sigh*

Then Jason made the mistake of telling me that the main floor bath will be last room we will deal with and that it could be 5 years before anything happens in that room.

What did you say? Get my paint brush? Okay!

Man down!

Okay, so it's not a man down but chimney #1 is coming down. This is the same chimney that gave us our lovely leaky wall waterfall feature in the pantry. The house has 3 chimney's in total and none are in use.  So, it's coming down.

One of the most beautiful things about our farm is the bounty of items that we have lying around & can salvage for future use. I'm excited to reuse these blocks and build an kickin' outdoor grill next Spring.
