100 Year Old Farmhouse Demo Episode 4 | Chimney Removal

I have been away at girls camp all week working with the best young women ever. And now I am home again. Zeb has been holding down the fort and making lots of progress on the house. This video he did alongside our son Harrington. Plus I came home to a full fridge, spotless home and happy children. I love that I can serve with our church and Zeb is so good at taking care of things while I am gone. We picked up the tile I ordered today, and I can’t wait to start putting this home back together. Away is fun, but home is better. Watch Episode 4 Here: https://youtu.be/BgxcMm_R_pw Find the paint and products we use here: https://jamirayvintage.com...

100 Year Old Farmhouse Demo Episode 3 | Bathroom Demo

I really want to use this tub, but I need feet. This bathroom will be the only one on the main level of the house. The hardwoods are rough, and will need to be patched, but we’ll save them and paint them. I want no carpet in this house. Just some rugs.  We went junking and I bought a few things for our space at Molly's Forget Me Not Boutique and bought a few things for the house. Zebs comment to me, “I...

100 Year Old Farmhouse Demo Episode 2 | Kitchen Demo

This is what 100 years of kitchen looks like. So many designs, paint jobs and wallpaper. We still need to peel back the floor and open up the wall to the left to expand in to what used to be the bathroom. But I am already dreaming of open shelving, cement counters, custom white cabinets and a giant natural wood island. We already have our appliances so I am itching to get it pulled together. Zeb says that demo has been exactly what he expected. But for me I can say that it’s way harder than I thought. And my sledge hammer skills aren’t as good as I though they would be. We are really loving uncovering the bones of...

Backyard Makeover

Our backyard makeover started with needing an outdoor space for the kids to play in. Now we have that plus a great outdoor space to relax and enjoy. We had a mountain of lumber that was given to us, but it had been sitting out too long. So we hauled that to the dump and built a pavilion where it was.  Pavilion Video: https://youtu.be/V9R74P8uZH8 After this we needed to decorate the space under it. We went to IKEA and found a rug, pillows, couch and more!  Watch the IKEA Haul Here: https://youtu.be/ILODrBk1NNc We didn't find a coffee table at IKEA, but we made one during our Waste Not Wednesday Live video. We used an old salvaged barn door and Zeb made the...
