Once upon a time,
a hardworking farmer needed a home to house his many children. Nine to be exact.
He found a quaint farmhouse that had a date with a wrecking ball,
he stepped in to save it.
He had the house moved to his farm where it became a home for raising those nine children, alongside his wife
and lots and lots of cows.
We, the Fancy Farmgirls,
were the middle children, in that bundle of kids.
“Middle child syndrome” isn’t as rough when you’ve got a twin sister to go through it with you.:)
We loved our home, but never quite imagined that one of us would call it “home” again.
That’s another story for another day,
but 5 years ago, Liz moved her family back into the farmhouse.
there are still parts of the home that look like they are STILL destined for a date with the wrecking ball:)
This room with its peeling plaster ceiling and paint splattered floors
It’s enough to make a girl feel like throwing up her arms in defeat,
Liz threw on the paint!
A cheerful girls bedroom using ONLY second hand furniture.
First order of business,
color and personality for the walls!
wall color: Sherwin Williams Windowpane 6210
add on gold wall vinyl dots and you’ve got
fun, quick personality!
This rug was the jumping off point for the rest of the room
And remember, all furniture is second hand.
They just needed a makeover to bring them all together.
To stick with our gold theme,
The art piece for over the dresser is hand painted by using various shades of our dresser color
We adorned plain pillows and lampshades with coordinating pom poms.
Can a girl have too many pom poms?
We think not!
I think the local resident agrees!
I just might move in and be her roomie!
Most of these furnishings have gone through multiple
makeovers in order to fit in with new rooms, new looks and changing tastes.
There’s no need to feel like a new makeover requires new furnishings.
Just new paint!
