Decorating Our Farmhouse

#12. This summer we hope to do some major design pushes on our farmhouse. More on that later. A small project we did finish was for the master bath. Can you guess what it is?

Over there…to the left. It’s the peg board for towels. I searched for an antique one but nothing really worked right. So…I got a bunch of old chair spindles and had Scott cut them in half and insert them into a long board. Then I  painted it the same color as the walls.

D.I.Y.- Scanned Sampler Becomes Wrapping Paper

I took several things to the printers to have them scanned for use as wrapping paper. An old sampler turned out to be my favorite. I added a piece of tea dyed fabric and a simple spool stuck on with hot glue.

#7. Rather than install another wood mantel, the homeowners decided to just paint the exposed chimney brick instead. The fireplace and the gold framed antique portrait complements this simple yet elegant dining space.
