Farmhouse Update Winter 2015

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Progress is slow on the inside because as many of you know, New England has been hit with massive snow storms, with yet another 14+” of snow on the way tomorrow.  But we did manage to finish our guest bath/laundry room.  So I thought I would share.  As any of you who have tackled renovation know, it’s never really done, but it’s always in some stage of progress.  This space feels pretty good for now.  It’s an open space and connects with our guest room and  den/nook off the kitchen.  The house truly does have a racetrack right around the center, which is good for some stir crazy dogs about now. And with that in mind, our finishes are heavy duty to make that play possible.  Most of you who see me on FB will recognize the sink.  The Superhero mounted a funky shelf out of reclaimed wood over the toilet and fashioned the laundry area out of old wood from the barn.  Love these thick pieces.  The window to nowhere in the tub area brings light into an otherwise closed in space and adds a touch of whimsy.  It too was found in the barn, along with all the wood around it.  If nothing else, we are having fun creating a space we enjoy together.  Hope you like the tour.

Shameless plug for the beautiful kids, my son and his lovely girl and their company , we have been using jar after jar of drenched to keep our hands nice and hydrated all winter long.  Good for my face too when I dip out into the cold.

  10. I just love your farmhouse and all the special touches you and superhero have added. My your boy and his girl are handsome. xoxo

    A wonderful area . What a handsome son, and lovely daughter in law, I wish them great luck with their products of organic bath things.

  12. Beautiful! Love the old window! And shameless plug or proud mom? Toot that horn!

  13. I really enjoyed the tour of your new bath. It looks like something you would appreciate. That sink and stand are a gorgeous color. Can’t beat a bit of color when it comes to YOUR world!

    It was also fun to meet your son and his girlfriend, too. Shameless plug or not, they deserve it if that “drenched” works as well as you say it does.

  14. Your bathroom certainly reflects your style Corrine. I love that it is all open, the timber use everywhere even in the shower as well as the beautiful glass basin.
    I think your son and his girlfriend are “drenched” in love – love all of those totally organic products.
