Dreaming of our Farmhouse kitchen remodel. Guys I know that I’ve said this before, but living in a fixerupper is no joke! When Jared and I walked down this road nearly FOUR years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long). We made a commitment to try and not take on any debt when bringing this place back to life.... that commitment has been so hard, because it’s meant that projects just don’t get done until we save up enough for them.... we’ve spent over $40k in this place so far, all out of pocket, with no loans... We have re-roofed, re-Plummed, rebuilt part of the addition from the studs up, added period lighting and fixtures, hung molding and painted every single room. There’s so much effort and sacrifice that we’ve poured out into this place.... and at times it hasn’t been easy, especially since I’m a naturally impatient person... and seeing gorgeous Pinterest photos like this one doesn’t help lol. With that said though, the best things in life are often the things that you have to work the hardest for, we’ve come to know that simple truth well. So here’s to all of you fellow old house lovers and restorers... you are a special breed! Keep at it, keep dreaming and keep loving life back into your homes! At the end of this journey, like our homes, we will be better for it! .
My sister moved into her new home today with her fiance....and it is beautiful! Which of course inspired me to revisit all the visions I had for our home when we moved in almost 5 years ago. And now I'm stalking other #farmhouse insta accounts and #pinterest boards getting more kitchen, bathroom and bedroom ideas. Husband doesn't know it yet but I think 2018 is the year of total transformation for this old Farmhouse on Five Mile.
