One of my very best-est girlfriends has a wonderful old farmhouse which I not so secretly want for my own.
She thinks I’m a little crazy in that while she sees the broken drawers or the bathroom that needs re-doing (a.k.a. - a lot of work)
charm, charm, charm
She took her kitchen from oh…. to oh MY!
Creamy cabinets and beadboard all around
creamy curvy platters hung on the wall
and old stove just for pretty
(I’ll try to sneak over and get some before and after pictures to share!)
Her current project is redoing her dining room area that opens up into that creamy lovely kitchen.
It has wood paneling….lots and lots of wood paneling.
something maybe like this (note - this is NOT her home!)
I think I’ve got her convinced to paint it and I’m trying to share with her some ideas of what it could look like.
maybe something like…..

I hope these will swoon her and persuade her to let me come over and help her wield her paintbrush and give these painting muscles a workout!
Chat soon -

and like this from the amazing jennifer rizzo:
