The painters are coming today to do the final touchups in the basement.
Knowing that the family room mantel was o.k. This morning I decided to give it a simple farmhouse style. My fireplace turned out exactly as I had imagined it. Love the brick and the carpenter hand made the mantle for me. I think he did a fantastic job.
I’m sure they think this lady is crazy because she can’t even wait until everything is finished before she starts decorating. Have to admit, they have a point. lol!
I just started pulling things from upstairs that I thought might work. Isn’t it great when you can shop from home? My large rooster was one I bought years ago. It comes out to crow every now and then. I’m sure he’s tickled as punch to get to stay out for a while.
When I think of farmhouse I think of baskets and scales. The toile rooster coffee pot was a thrift find and I bought the hobnail lamp at a yard sale. The sweet doily was one of the gifts from my blog friend, Rose.
I borrowed the old spools from my sewing room. The light fixture turned candleholder was a purchase a while back from Tracy @ Fishtail Cottage.
I love it’s simple rustic charm.
A little mustard colored bench elevates a couple of old clocks and a farmhouse scoop sits on the hearth. I’m sure things will get tweaked as I run across more treasures. But for now, this will do.
Lovin my farmhouse style!
