I recently decided to put my original matching dining room chairs into storage, and purchased six vintage, mismatched dining room chairs. I lived with them being brown for quite some time, but on a whim, I decided to go for the rustic black farmhouse look that I really wanted on these dining room chairs. I used some black chalk paint and matte polycrylic to get the look I wanted.
Lilacs are one of the first flowering bushes in our area and I enjoy gathering Lilacs to make arrangements to place in the rooms of our home. I also love the way they fill the house with their delightful scent. They never last long but with a few simple tips I have learned I how I can keep fresh cut Lilac branches in our home.
I have never hidden that we live in a double wide mobile home. It’s part of our life story that I am more than happy to share about. I believe that everyone should make the most of whatever home that they live in, and I am on a mission to make the interior of our home look like the farmhouse simple style that I love.
This Independence Day looks so different for our family. In the 19 years that I have been with my husband, we have always done the same thing. Pack up, head to the creek and spend the afternoon with all of our extended family. The children swim in the creek, and the adults lounge in their chairs, chatting, making multiple trips to the table to snack on foods. The sound of fireworks, kids splashing, and the endless chatter has made for some wonderful memories.
We built a walk in pantry last year in our kitchen area and installed a sliding barn door. I really loved it but the brown always seemed a bit off in our home and so several months ago, I decided to paint it.

Old farmhouse style furniture has a way of luring me in. I love the simple straight lines of old shaker style pieces and I recently was browsing the a local for sale site when this beautiful farmhouse cupboard showed up.
The voice of autumn is ringing loudly through the hills and hollers of home. The world is still filled with greens but there is the occasional yellow and rusty gold of the falling leaves. It is the undeniable beauty of September.
It will be celebrated with pomp and parade….. bonfires and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other. John Adams Welcome! My favorite part of summer is celebrating Independence Day! I love the festivities of eating delicious food, swimming at the creek, being with family and ending the night with lots of color […]
There are often a lot of questions about what type of flooring you can lay in a manufactured home. Most times when a manufactured home is purchased it will have carpet and linoleum. We wanted to upgrade our home and after talking with a hardwood flooring company, we chose to go with hardwood floors. A manufactured home is assembled and brought out to a location in two separate pieces. It is then put together on site and they are also known as a double-wide or modular home.
