Junkers Unite with Vintage Jack Stand Lamps!

Junkers Unite with Vintage Jack Stand Lamps! {21}

So.  If you’re following me on Instgram – or Facebook you might have seen these jack stands when I got them at a yard sale 2 months ago.  I posted a picture of them and people had lots of suggestions for what I could do with them…but I knew they wanted to be lamps.  They(…)

Why Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint?

Why Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint? {25}

The truth is – there are a lot of reasons that I have been choosing to do most of my furniture makeovers with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. And maybe someday, we’ll have time to get into all of them. But not in this post. For now let’s just say I’m choosing MMSMP because there are paint(…)

I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard form me.  There are even a whole bunch of you that are reading their very first post from me right now!  For those of you that are new here, WELCOME!  I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to share!  And for those of you that have(…)

You Can Tuna Piano {and paint it too}

You Can Tuna Piano {and paint it too} {28}

Today is pretty much a perfect Spring Day.  It’s warm, it’s sunny, it’s breezy, I’m not sneezing (yet).  My goal for today is to get outside and do some more mowing.  My lawn mower really is a happy place for me. Does that seem weird to you??  Have we talked about this before? Before I(…)

What, This Old Thing? {vintage barber chair}

What, This Old Thing? {vintage barber chair} {46}

I was taking a look around the house (in my mind) the other day and I realized that so much of the stuff that we have is old stuff.  It’s not very often that we go out and buy something for the house from a retail shop.  I thought maybe I’d start a feature, here on(…)

Vintage Industrial Farmhouse {tool storage} {35}

In case you were looking for an update on the sick girl – she’s mostly better.  She was lucky? enough to get sick just before a long weekend so she hasn’t missed as much school as she might have.  I thought she would go back to school on Tuesday but decided that she needed another(…)

Vintage Industrial Farmhouse {Fall Mantel}

Vintage Industrial Farmhouse {Fall Mantel} {18}

I know.  I talked about the mantel too much and you got all excited and now you’re not sure if it can really be all that exciting.  It is, after all, just the mantel in my dining room.  It’s true.  It’s not going to change the world or anything.  I have to tell you though –(…)

Breakfast Tray?  Bed Table?  { painting with miss mustard seed milk paint}

Breakfast Tray? Bed Table? { painting with miss mustard seed milk paint} {9}

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint So.  I’m not sure what the technical term for this small piece of furniture is… but I do know that it needed a makeover. What would you call it…? …besides dirty. This little table was actually a Christmas gift last year – and (good grief, I hope I’m(…)

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after}

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after} {23}

I guess I’m getting pretty bold about showing you pictures of the crazy spaces in my house.  I can tell you, that is a sure sign that things are actually starting to improve around here.  If everything is totally chaotic and I see no sign of getting it back in shape any time soon?  I’m probably(…)

In the Light of Day {everything looks better}

In the Light of Day {everything looks better} {34}

Vintage Schoolhouse Hooks (to make up for our lack of closets) (again) Do you think I’ve gotten the whole house put back together?  You saw the Before and After shots of the dining room a couple of days ago and so far, that is my biggest victory.  I know, it seems to be taking forever.(…)

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2}

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2} {24}

Okay.  I’m just going to put this right out there, first thing.  The next Country Living Magazine Fair will take place in Mid-September in Columbus, Ohio and I am angling for a way to get there.  All the while that I’ve been editing the (way too many) photos that I’m sharing with you, I’ve been(…)

Summertime.  {and the Country Living is easy}

Summertime. {and the Country Living is easy} {14}

Last week I shared my trip to Sharon Springs, New York with all of you.  After my visits to the Beekman 1802 Mercantile and the Beekman Farm, I was truly hard pressed to narrow down the photos I would post here on the blog.  You might find it interesting to know that when I photograph(…)

Beek Week(end) Part 2 {the mansion, the barn, and every living thing on Beekman Farm}

Beek Week(end) Part 2 {the mansion, the barn, and every living thing on Beekman Farm} {37}

I am so sorry you had to wait this long to see the rest of the photos from my weekend in Sharon Springs, New York.  I wish I could have gotten them to you sooner but it’s been a crazy week so far.  I’m going to put TONS of photos into this post in an(…)
