Now that the dust has settled (literally) on the bulk of the remodeling I am able to enjoy my new spaces without the stresses of huge to do lists. I am very much enjoying the blend of my things, my mom's things and my grandparents' things in this new meets old space.
Our house was built in the 30's. I love a lot of the charms of this old house. My favorite? The crystal door knobs.
If I ever move from this house I think these door knobs might have to move with me.
As we updated the house, especially the kitchen, I tried to embrace the age of the home. My favorite new piece with antique style in the kitchen is our faucet.
I think it really works in our new old kitchen.
The cabinets that I turned into shelving in the breakfast room are awesome. They are by far my favorite part of that room. I love that the bead board continued inside the cabinets.
I use the space to display a collection of my things, my mom's and both my grandmothers' things. I love seeing it all together.
A few of the husband's things made the shelves too.
I have also introduced a lot of color into the house. I absolutely love the whimsical hallway.
And the cranberry dining room.
After taking some after pictures this weekend with my actual camera (don't get too excited it is still a point and shoot camera, just one up from my phone) I will start my before and after posts by room. I am very excited about these posts! They have been a long time coming.
I found another awesome blog with a link party. Savvy Southern Style has some beautiful ideas. I am linking up over there for Wow Us Wednesdays. If you are visiting from Savvy Southern Style, welcome...thanks for stopping by!
