Switching Gears.....

Whew! The Shoppe expansion has kept hubby and I so busy over the past few months that our sweet farmhouse has had to sit on the back burner. 
No complaints, I do love to work on the Shoppe, but I've been longing to give some attention to our little place again.
 
With the Shoppe expansion behind us, we are eager to now tackle another room makeover at our little Farmhouse on Main.
Our next project? ......
The master bedroom!
I've spent some time this week designing the space and we will begin digging into it this weekend. 
 
But first, let me share a few BEFORE photos of the space. 
 
 
 
Vintage details, 12' ceiling height, old moldings, long windows, and beadboard ceilings bring loads of charm to the space, but it is not without design challenges.   
 
Many changes lay ahead for this room that will include lots of painting, construction, electrical, sewing, and plenty of furniture moving.  I'll share our progress as we move through the makeover along with the solutions we found for some of the design obstacles.  Using the weekends this month we hope to complete the room before our next show. Fingers crossed... :-))
 
How about you, any DIY projects on your horizon?

Your shop looks amazing, and I can understand spending so much time fixin up the shop that the homestead suffers. I was painting my diningroom at 11:30 p.m. last night with hubby just because we went to Lowes and decided we needed to brighten it up.

Your master looks amazing...I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Hi LaurieAnna, It will be great to see what you do with your master bedroom. I'm sure it will be lovely - your shoppe is lovely.

Glad you are able to slow down a bit from the shoppe and do some fun things at home. I can't wait to see what you do.

Take care of yourself and rest...Amy

My opinion is a general one. I love in this blog all topics written by the blog author. Nice blog and nice type of expression. For my part for the blog author: I decorate him with twelve stars. Very nice blog.

Just wondering what type of ladder or staging you use to paint your 12 foot ceilings?

I need to paint mine, but it seems too high up for regular ladders. help?
