Hi everyone! I am so glad to welcome you here for an inside summer tour of our old farmhouse. Thanks so much to my friend Meg from Green with Décor for hosting this blog hop. Make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see even more summer tours from my friends.
If this is your first time visiting our blog my family and I are slowly fixing up a century old farmhouse, (a former turkey farm) in the suburbs. Wouldn’t it be fun if there were still turkeys:)? This website is where I share diy projects, decorating ideas, gardening tips and the occasional recipe that we learn along the way. We still have a lot more projects planned but we love how it’s turning out so far. We have been working a lot lately on the curb appeal of the front of our home and just finished making this pallet sign to finish it off.
Come on in to our entryway! Can I just say how white hydrangeas are the best decorating accessory, they just make me smile :).
We built a small floating entryway table to the foyer this past fall after none of the other pieces of furniture that we had worked here.
Back up the steps we added an old door turned coat rack to the wall to store the overflow of coats, bags and backpacks.
The living room didn’t need much that a gallon of white paint couldn’t fix :).
Believe or not a lot of the furniture in our house we bought or found 2nd hand, we made, or we found at an outlet or on clearance.
I love adding shells to our summer décor. Most of our shells we found on family beach vacations through the years. I have been collecting them since I was a little girl. For more shell decorating ideas check out my post here.
Our fireplace mantel I kept fairly simple with lots of whites, flowers and shells.
I even added a shell to our pallet wreath.
I love the view from our living room to our dining room.
Again, white hydrangeas steal the show! I bought over 20 Annabelle hydrangeas almost 3 years ago online for a couple dollars each and they are finally big enough to be able to cut blooms all summer long. Check out my Annabelle hydrangeas on our garden tour.
My dining room mantel couldn’t have been simpler to decorate. Candles and some fern cut from our garden in a fun cow creamer.
Off the dining room is of course the kitchen.
I love having a sink under a window so I can look out and watch my kids play in the front yard.
We have big plans for the kitchen over the next few years and hope to change a few things to the eat in area this summer.
Back around the corner to the dining room and up the steps to the upstairs.
We have 3 boys and 1 little girl. We recently finished complete room remodels of all the boys rooms but are currently working on our daughter’s room which is why her pics are missing from the tour.
Ryan’s room connects with our youngest, Tucker’s room. Jason made a pallet sliding door to go between the two rooms.
The master bedroom was a huge project! You can read more about it here.
And back down the stairway to our family room.
With all the red trim in this room it is hard not to decorate in a patriotic fashion.
Thanks so much for taking the time to check our farmhouse summer tour! I know I went a little crazy with the pictures but I am just starting to figure out how to use my camera practicing with it :). Despite all my inside summer decorating we really try to spend as much time outside as possible. If you missed our summer garden tour and outside spaces post make sure to check that our here. Be sure to stop by my friends tours below! Happy Summer!
