Farm House Tour- The Upstairs

November 8, 2011 at 1:39 pm (Home Changes and Additions) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have been wanting to show a mini tour of the new farm house, and finally got started! These are “semi-before” photos, as we already have our things moved in, but these our not our paint colors and mostly not our curtains.  There will be many more changes to come, and I wanted a way to show the progress and changes.  So, lets start with the upstairs!

Here is the view at the top of the stairs.

There are some frames in the hallway and the book shelf I redid…

At the end of the stairwell is an old antique wash cabinet from my granparents…

The view back towards the stairwell…

Next is the room on the left of the stairwell, next to the old wash cabinet.  We call this the “kid room,” which used to be a little girl’s room…

The other side of the room…

And on the wall by the door there is a chalk drawing of Dora! lol

The door in the last photo goes to what we call the “baby room,” which will one day be a nursery…

The other side of the room has chalk spiderwebs, which were for a little boy…

Here is the view back towards the “kid room”…

Next is my walk through closet that leads the master bedroom. This is across the stairwell from these rooms…

I still can’t wait to have the time to paint the closet the dark navy I have picked out!

The jewelry area…

Next you walk through the closet door and into our sunken bedroom…

The walls are currently yellow, which is fine, but we plan to paint them a nice gray at some point.  The little white shabby dresser was found in the back of the house and makes a perfect TV stand for us…

The wooden shelf above the chair is a barn board we found…

Recognize the blue chair from the old office? It was too big.  The next photo is of the antique dresser from my grandparents that matches out bed…

Our bed…

The shelf by my side of the bed we made out of another barn board that we call the “cow board,” because its front is smooth and wavy due to cows rubbing on it…

Our stained glass window and exposed rustic beams…

Next is the main bathroom.  This shot is a view in the doorway from the closet…

The blue and flooring aren’t really our first picks, but they will make due until we can paint and spruce…

Well, thats the upstairs.  What do you think so far?  A lot to do, but so far we love it! 🙂

    You have visitors in your second floor bedrooms. And not just one or two. Take another look at your photos. That’s great!

        The Orbs. That is so cool. We have a 300 year old farmhouse and see the same thing. It is not dust. You have some friendly visitors. You are blessed. Nice House too!!

        An interesting thing happened this morning. Last night Cindy and I went to bed,fell asleep. Early in the AM I heard a familiar sound. But, couldn’t quite place it.I asked Cindy if that was her and she said no. I laid there a bit longer trying to remember what that sound was. I had goose bumps. I fell asleep. This morni…ng I woke up and opened up all of the shades in my usual morning ritual. When I got to the window that looks down into the kitchen from our bedroom and lifted the shade I just stood there and thought….H o l y s h i t! The window was closed and the stick that props it open was lying right where I would place it if I were to close it. The sound that I heard was that stick being removed and the window being carefuly and slowly closed. (We always have it open).
