These two pictures were the pictures I planned to post when I thought the theme was “color”…hello. I love this one of Leah I took in May out by the frog pond. Animated expression (that’s my girl) and the look of the sky.
Happy to say that my trim work will probably be going up faster than I anticipated thanks to my brother and MM. I have been doing a bit of research on-line to get some ideas but have not found what I am looking for. I want a rustic look as this is an old farm house and we are hard on stuff so we need lumber that is forgiving. I was thinking pine around the windows, doors, etc and maybe rough cut lumber/ship lap half walls in the dining room/kitchen. In the living room if the budget allows I would like a 1/2 wall of bead board painted white (wainscoting I guess it is) and the same stuff to trim around the fireplace. Any thoughts, suggestions, pictures you may have, or web sites? I am so excited because I will be able to decorate like I want with real curtains (not cheap mini blinds) and I can plaster my walls with pictures…..yeah…I am SO excited!
Before and after pictures of this old farm may be here quicker than I thought.
The kids are back to school in the morning. They have had a great vacation even though we did not venture very far from the homestead. We are ALL homebodies. We did make it to the movies to see Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler, great movie!
I hope to do my next post on root cellaring….our successes and failures.
