Carpet. Why did we ever?! Cozy yes… but oh-so very dirty, and oh-so not a good idea for a farmhouse with fur babies! 😳 In Spring 2018 we decided that we’d like to replace the flooring in all rooms within our home that have carpet… room-by-room, year-by-year. We were dreaming of hardwoods… realizing very quickly that… Continue reading DIY Rustic Farmhouse Wood Flooring
We’ve been doing a lil’ reno job in our boys’ room. It started with fresh paint on the walls and baseboards, followed by our own DIY softwood floor install (which I’ll be blogging deets about very soon), then a tallboy dresser restoration, and last but certainly not least this antique washstand transformation! These charming pieces… Continue reading Antique Washstand Transformed Bedside Table
“What colour(s) will you transform it in Faye?” A question I not only receive frequently, I also ask myself countlessly! Although some pieces I know instantly what colour(s) and technique(s) I’ll apply… more typically I stew and stew over what I should do. I stand and stare at the piece, I dream about the piece,… Continue reading Tea, Dark Roast, or Both?
Our boys’ bedroom was in MUCH need of a refresh! A refresh that could very easily cost us a bundle OR cost us very little. I prefer the latter myself, so that’s what we rolled with! 😉 I started off with giving his walls a fresh new coat of paint… Ripped out the dirty old… Continue reading A Tallboy for My Tall Boy
A sweet ol’ piece that holds copious signs of aging… chipping, peeling, cracking… the WHOLE deal!
Listen to your heart. It may be on your left, but it is ALWAYS right! ❤ Back in January 2017, I started out flipping a few furniture pieces for ME.. for our home… and quickly realized how VERY much I loved this craft, and simply could NOT get enough of it! BUT our small farmhouse… Continue reading Listening to My Heart
Creaking hardwood floors, distressed furniture finishes, chickenwire accents, mason jar decors, caster wheels, enamel pitchers, Grandma’s apron, potato/onion bins, crystal glass door knobs, breadboxes, hard-working dirty Farmer hands, screen porch doorways, antique nail bins, rusty milk cans, and chippy doors with crackled paint… … are a just a FEW of my favourite farmhouse things! BUT… Continue reading Corner Shelf Farmhouse Charm
Neighbours. I have the best kind. The kind that will drop everything when you’re in a pinch and need a hand. The kind that will stop whatever they’re doing to tell you that you have some cattle outside the fence — and will also head on over to help you get them back in. The… Continue reading A Dresser for YOU Jennifer
“Perfect” — we strive for it, we desire it, we crave it. But WHY do we do this to ourselves, when truly NOTHING is perfect?! I find myself guilty of this far too often. Striving for perfection is EXHAUSTING. It’s when I live by grace, and not perfection; that I’m gently reminded that nothing in life… Continue reading ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ Antique Bedroom Suite
“The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes.” — Frank Lloyd Wright Well said Frank. ❤ I’m doing my best to age gracefully. I’m not getting old — I’m becoming vintage rather! And vintage to me is most beautiful! ❤ Lines on ones face show distinction and character — they show that one has lived… Continue reading Gracefully Aging Table
