Sneak Peak of the New House

We are completely moved into the farm now, and even had our housewarming party.  And, we are loving it!  There are color and arrangement changes we’d like to make in the near future, but for right now we are settled!  Soon I will have a full tour of the place for you all, but for now here are a few tid-bits to get the feel for the antique unique-ness of our new home.

Here is a shot of my closet.  Yes, I said MY.  And, yes, this whooole space is the closet! Wow is right.  Its like my own personal dressing room.  Oh, and I might be nice and share one or two shelves.  🙂

This is a peak into our bedroom.  The bedroom is sunken behind the closet.  The beams on the ceiling you see here are barn boards from our barn.  And isn’t that little stained glass window adorable?

This little shelf is in our bedroom.  We made it ourselves (whereas the other elements were added or refurbished by previous owners) and it was made out of a board we found in the barn.  The curves in the front of the board were carved out by cows rubbing on it.  Oh, and don’t worry, the mustard color will soon go.

This is a peak at the top landing of our stairs.  This little gate was made from an old antique door.  So cute.  It latches with an old barn style latch.  It already proves handy for keeping the dogs corralled, but will also be handy with kids someday!

Here’s a little magazine rack that is built into the stairway.  These little touches are what makes this house so sweet and unique.

This is a shot of the banister that has been antiqued.  This is right off the dining room and basically the view you get as you walk in our main door.

Across the other side of the dining room are two antique doors with stained glass windows.  One leads to a sun room and one to a storage room.  Gorgeous touches!

In the dining room and to the right is the kitchen.  The kitchen was added on later and has a drop woods ceiling.  The master sunken bedroom is above the kitchen.  The kitchen has warm hardwood floors just like the dining room and living room.  There is an super cute little arched doorway leading to the kitchen.  And notice the antique wood wainscoting?  Each room also has original crown moldings.

Here’s a peak at the antique kitchen cabinets.  Some of them!  Need I say more?

And one last shot I have for you is the living room.  The couple who refinished a lot of the house before us built a TV cabinet out of antique doors that were found in the barn.  It is large and we are not sure we will keep it here, but it is so neat and such a conversation starter!

Well, what do you think?  Are you ready to see how we decorate and accent all of these crazy details?!
