Small steps ~


Since moving to our new/old little farmhouse the first of October
well, really the middle of September....
I've not made much progress in decorating our new home!

I've been weeding out our stuff,
and trying to figure out what goes, what stays ~
I think we still have too much but I'll keep weeding.....
a true hoarder's promise, RIGHT??!!!!

I still have NOTHING on the walls and if only you knew how much
I have to hang...you would LAUGH your head off!!!

But I walked through the dining room today and thought
it didn't look too terribly bad and
I took a couple of photos to share with you.

I love this old place.....
can you see how much stuff I have crammed in that shelf????
You gotta love a hoarder just a little bit :)


BEFORE:




AFTER:




I hope to show you more of the farmhouse soon...
maybe even with something on the walls!!


Ellie likes the new digs pretty good herself!




Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday precious friends ~

hugs and love,
Dawn

Your new ~ old farmhouse is looking wonderful! No wonder you love it!!

wanda miller said...

Dawn, i can't believe i've finally read, where someone said it the way i have felt (your previous post) about owning ideas. you couldn't have said it better in my humble opinion. i won't even try to add to that...just wanted you to know how much i appreciate you expressing this opinion. i honestly used to think that sometimes about my own work and someone copying it..not so of late, coming to the realization of true sharing! xo

Dearest Dawn, this looks so cosy, and wonderfull, I so love the cloche you put inside the metal basket, looks just great-and the urns and ,and---
Have a happy day, dear friend,

I think this is the table I would love to sit at, so warm and giving, like you Sweet Dawn.
Putting up pictures is a task and the moment will strike when its right. You do have a magical touch for decorating.

Looks good to me! Do you have a new studio! I bet it was hard to leave to wonderful one you had before! Good luck with the weeding! I'm doing some weeding of my own around here, just need less stuff! Can't wait to see more!

Not blank walls sugar...blank canvasses just waiting for your artistic hands.

Wow, what an 'after'! What's under those cloches? Any horns or petrified cow patties? It's really beautiful my friend, you did good! Lisa

Sunshine said...

I love all the things you have and the shelf looks great. I am a hoarder also. Sure as I get rid of something that is just what I want or need. Have a great week.

Junk Exchange said...

i love what you did .. i have been surprised at how much i really like the look of painted paneling .. it has a wonderful old farmhouse look .. you have done an incredible job of decorating .. and i have a feeling my Jax would just be in love with Ellie ..

mariondee-designs said...

I think it looks great! Love that you painted the walls and the whole room has that farmhouse feel! Very cozy! Take care, Maryann

Lee said...

We've been here a year, and still so much in boxes, and hardly ANYTHING on the walls. I think there' so much blank space that I don't know where to start!

Joy Lett said...

The house is coming along great. I remember the first time I saw Ellie. She was so very tiny.

Erica said...

It's beautiful! Love how you updated that paneling. It's a complete transformation.

Karen said...

Moving is a monumental task for most people,but for people like us who like to create and collect things its on a whole other level.With that in mind I'd say you've done a remarkable job making your place look like a home in a very short time.It looks so pretty and warm and welcoming.Just like the lady of the house!

Shopgirl said...

I am so excited to see what you have done....I can tell you love this new old farm house. I have one to and I love it too. I love what you did to that room, you made it yours:) I do not have a dinning room, we have a old fashioned kitchen and I have a old Walton's still table and chairs. It is made of white Maple and I use it for everything. My kids grew up around it and can tell stories about some of the marks on it. We moved from a 4 bedroom 2 bath and a din, about 3000 squar feet to about 1400, so I had so much stuff to find a home for. I have three kids, so alot of it found it's way to their house.
Project....I got two very old wing back chairs that I am giving a little love until they are re-ulpostered (can't spell). I should take a picture of them.
I really enjoy seeing your new house become a part of you...your talents are so many, it's all good! Love you Dear Dawn, Mary

mitziscollectibles said...

I absolutely love what you've done so far, Dawn! Your room looks magazine-worthy. And your picture of Ellie is beyond adorable!

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

Dawn...I love it! I to am a "Crammin Queen" but when a gal has ALL this cherished stuff what is the alternative? I can hardly wait for your walls to talk and share your expressive visions! Looking good girl!

marty said...

The sideboard is a wonderful piece that you have staged well. I am totally intrigued by a bookshelf in this area...............what a wonderful idea! You can sit at your table and enjoy reading books about subjects that ignite your passion(s)!. I think this is ingenious! Lovely post.

ByLightOfMoon said...

you have made your home very home and comfortable still without your walls full like mine and I still have photos I have never hung, but I love to see them now and then. What do I do about that?

I guess I need to find room somewhere and So much Christmas is available I am not using.

Memories are hard to part with when you have a choice.

But I really need to clear out the garage also!
Smiles, Cyndi

Diane said...

It's looookiiing good, Miss Dawn! And just in time for Christmas. And it's not like you aren't a busy lady! ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
Diane
