Farmhouse Spring Tour – Spring Fling Home Tour Hop

Spring Home Tour 2016 - Spring Fling tour hop

Hi everybody!  I am back today to share my Farmhouse Spring Tour with you.  Yay for Spring!  The special treat with this Spring Fling Home Tour Hop hosted by my friend Stephanie who blogs @ Casa Watkins is that each day a different style of decorating is featured.  There are over 20 tours on this hop so hopefully you will find a Spring tour that is just for you!

Spring Fling Home Tour

Today’s hop is featuring homes with farmhouse style so after checking out our home make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see more farmhouse tours as well as traditional, transitional, eclectic and vintage:).

Welcome to our old farmhouse!  We have lived here 2 1/2 years and have slowly been remodeling it one room at a time:).  Our home was originally the tenant farmer’s house of an old turkey farm that has had some interesting additions added to it over the years.  It has come along way since it was built in the 1800’s and we hope to continue to bring it more up to date while preserving as much of it’s character as we can.

I have to say that this was the hardest tour for me to put together since my kiddos have been home for Spring break.  Every time I cleaned a room 5 minutes later it was a mess:).  Everyone ( except me) was less than thrilled to join in all the “spring cleaning” that needed to happen!  Even Moose protested.

I try to keep our entryway as organized as possible for a family of 6.  The kids have done a lot better helping with that since we added more hooks and a shoe closet cubby to our closet.  We do keep the rain and gardening boots by the door all year round which has come in very handy when a little one can only find one match of a pair of shoes.

This past fall we built an entryway table which is perfect for keys, mail and fresh flowers:).  It really does a great job keeping us organized and is so fun for me to change with the different seasons and holidays.

Hydrangeas are my absolute favorite.  I planted over 30 hydrangea bushes here since we move in.  They are just starting to come alive again after the long winter.  I look forward to the day I can bring huge armloads of blooms in and place some in every room of our farmhouse.

I paired them with some white tulips, so pretty and springy.  Bulb flowers are the best to buy in the spring because when they are done blooming you can take them outside and plant them, enjoying them for years to come.

I also added a bird’s nest found in our yard by the kids with one of my book page eggs.  I love the texture it gives our entryway table.

I also added a little spring to our powder room in the form of my little ceramic bunny that given to me when  I was a child.

Our dog, Moose refused to leave the living room.  He just loves to photo bomb my pics:).

I shared my Easter table yesterday but here is a couple pics if you missed that post:).  I am so thankful we decided to paint our dining room a bold color.  I love decorating it for every season.

I set a very simple table, perfect for an Easter brunch.  I still love the farmhouse table that Jason refinished for me for free!  To see how he did that go here.  I added  some more hydrangeas, an oil lantern, candles and a super simple spring garland I made last year to our dining room mantel which was the original fireplace for the farmhouse.

I have just one pic of my kitchen to share since I have 3 boys that are always hungry and there is totally dirty dishes in my sink:).  I swear you would think we were a family of hobbits with everyone expecting 1st and 2nd breakfasts!

Upstairs in our master bedroom there is nothing like a simple ball jar with hydrangeas to make a room scream Spring!

  1. You have a lovely home Tara, so huge too, lol, ours is probably not even half yours…! I love all the spring touches and I agree, I love having an organized entryway as well! Also, your dog is just so darn cute posing on the sofa 🙂

  2. Love how you’ve decorated your home for spring, Tara! Hydrangeas are my favorites too. I may need to get some pointers on planting my own from you!

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet comments Erin! Hydrangeas really are easy plants to care for. Mine are happiest when I leave them alone:).
