A Snowy Update From The Barn House!


 A snowy weekend left us spending most of our time tending to frozen pipes and well pumps, but what an appropriate scene for a December weekend!   Enjoy the wintery shots below along with a few updates.






I did manage to snap some photos of the bedroom our son is staying in.  He is living at the property while working at a local winery.


The snow outside the window left quite a glare in the photo above, but what a beautiful view!








I have such a fondness for one of a kind treasures I find while scouring shops and fairs. This little water color painting was done on a piece of regular copy paper taped to cardboard.... I love that!


We have half of the kitchen cabinets re-faced in the barn wood and will likely not finish the rest until after the holidays :(,  but here's a sneak peak anyway-  






The patina and character of this ash wood is just lovely. I cannot wait to finish this kitchen!

I'll be using black leather pulls like these on the cabinets. I thought it would add a nice modern touch to the distressed wood and compliment the stainless steels appliances.


We look forward to sharing our progress after the holiday season.

Thank you all for following along and best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!

All the best,

  1. Hi, Sarah -
    Happy December!! So lovely to have an update :) The photos are just magical - such a winter wonderland. I love the "driftwood" patina of the ashwood. I'm sure the texture in person is even more yummy. Oh you are teasing us with just a glimpse :) Can't wait to see more.
    Cheers for the holidays ahead!
