Happy new week to all! Before catching you up on the Finally Farmhouse, I must say THANK YOU to everyone who’s shown such wonderful support for the Valentine Project I posted about last week. You simply have no idea how the little gift of a Valentine can make such a difference in a young girl’s future! If you missed it, click the link and check it out. Go ahead. I’ll wait.
Transformation. Restoration. Second chances.
I’m a big fan.
Since my last post focused on the life transformation of precious young girls, today’s focus isn’t even in the same league—but it’s a whole lot of fun!
Renaissance Man and I have been salvaging treasures for our in-the-works farmhouse.
This 119-year-old, one-family farmhouse yielded a houseful of solid wood, 5-panel interior DOORS . . .
. . . and this antique Victorian screen door. Sigh
Sadly, we left a few things behind . . .
Another day our salvage focus was WINDOWS . . .
These beauties were salvaged from an old train station somewhere in the Northeast but ended up here in East Tennessee. Lucky me!
Renaissance Man and I both called “dibs” on them immediately!
I have a vision . . .
So does he . . .
Fortunately, there are plenty of windows for both projects—
but I reminded him that a house needs to be built before a greenhouse!
But seriously, aren’t those gorgeous greenhouse doors? I haven’t been able to get them off my mind.
Maybe these doors would work for our greenhouse (or my study) . . . The pretty red, glass-upper French doors ended up at The Regeneration Station in Asheville, NC.
They’re now in our barn. 🙂
One more inspiration pic for you . . .
If you’ve been a reader here for awhile, you may remember something else that’s in our barn. I’m pretty sure we can pull off a similar log wall. You can read about that salvage project HERE.
How about you? Are you all about NEW . . . or do you like to breathe new life back into old discards? Do tell!
As long as this little gizmo keeps my wi-fi up and running, I’ll keep sharing this journey with you. What an adventure we’re on!
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you want to come along for the farmhouse-building ride, sign up for new posts via email. You’re always welcome at My Place to Yours!
