She always dreamed of owning an old farmhouse so when she spotted a For Sale by Owner sign on the front lawn of a 200 year old farmhouse, she knew it was fate. So much needed to be done before her family could even begin to move in. Floors needed refinishing. Walls needed patching and painting. The kitchen needed a facelift. Today’s Eclectic Home Tour of Farmhouse 1820 takes us inside and out to get a look at the charming old farmhouse filled with tons of creative DIY projects and thrifted finds.
Sit a spell on the step back in time porch with a view of the charming old red barn.
“I have a traditional style when decorating and try my hardest to stay away from trends. I love pops of color in every room, and I strive to achieve a high-end look while being mindful of a tight budget. I am a firm believer in hard work and elbow grease, and am willing to put in the time and effort to bring things back to their former glory.” says Brooke.
When Brooke says she isn’t afraid of a little elbow grease, she means it. She found the stove on Craigs List for free but it took her and her husband 20 hours to clean the decades worth of grime off of it!
When Brooke first moved in 11 years ago, she gave the kitchen a must needed facelift but she didn’t stop there. Recent improvements include the wood range hood that they built themselves, painting the lower cabinets a happy shade of blue and installing a modern marble backsplash.
Of course, no farm is complete without a big red barn complete with giant painted flag.
P.S. Calling all fall candle testers! There are just a couple more days to sign up to help pick next year’s fall candle. You’ll get four tester candles in brand new scents
