New House Project List

So as we sit here and wait for the house to go through closing I can't help but scour the internet for ideas for the new house's interior.

Here is a pretty rough draft on our plans. Blame it on HGTV.

For the most part the house just needs a fresh coat of paint throughout, but the kitchen is where we want to do the most work. 

The living room really just needs some paint and window coverings. We plan on painting the ceiling planks, NOT THE BEAMS, so that we can brighten up the space. Both times we've been to the house have been cloudy days, and it does get a bit dark in the living room with all that wood. I think the beams will really pop against a light ceiling.

The tile flooring wouldn't be our first choice, but it will be easy to clean (which I love) we will probably put in hardwood in a few years.

Paint! I love paint! The whole house will be getting new paint, ceilings included, so anyone volunteering to help is welcome ;) 

Here are some preliminary paint samples that I have picked out.

Colors are Sherwin Williams

I'm really hoping to bring back some of the 1910 farmhouse charm.

As for the outside.

The 3,200 sq ft barn needs some TLC. Actually a lot of TLC, but after that we have some plans for additional outbuildings, fencing, a grand garden area and animal housing....again, volunteers welcome ;)

I keep telling Cody, I can't wait to see the house and property in three years. I know it's going to take a while to do everything we want to do, but it will all be so pretty and worth it in the end!
