Your home is your canvas to create something beautiful but sometimes unique and beautiful items can be cost prohibitive.....especially when you live in the middle of God's country.
So here's how I create bespoke on a budget with found items.
Originally I intended this blog post to inspire you with ideas for remaking your own unique art.....
This blog post if full of ideas on remaking vintage furniture. Check back often as I constantly am working on projects.
Almost 30 years ago, we purchased an old farmhouse built in 1900 that was a blend of turn of the century charm and bold 1960's mid-century modern style....but I'm not talking an iconic Eames chair but instead...
there was dark, knotty pine kitchen cabinets and paneling, harvest gold shag carpeting and busy linoleum (is that even a word) flooring. And do you see that large, scabbed on room on the right of the main structure? That was our furnace, laundry room & mud room combo that accounted for almost 1/4 of our square footage! The original open concept?!?!
Pretty scary right?
About this blog...
I began writing this blog in May 2016 after discovering that my mother always wanted to be a writer. She had Alzheimer's disease and never realized her dream. Sometimes in our deepest grief we are motivated to encourage others to fearlessly be themselves so that their gifts and stories are shared. I mean, how else can we change the world? So I began to record the things that reflect who I am and what is important to me, because one day my memories too, may be gone and what would that mean to the people God gave me to care for and the good works He gave me to do? So, here is where I share the important stuff so that you can learn real design, not decorator tricks, but fundamental and salient concepts to apply so that you can create your own legacy home and so that my family and I can remember the life we lived and created here in our home, our sacred place. I hope you're inspired and encouraged as I share my memories, my work, my mission & my life. Hugs & blessings, (Numbers 6: 24-26)
