Pictures of a Homestead House Wanna-be

Here are a few pics from inside the house, Liv does such a good job making it look all pretty and all, I thought I would share some photos

Just to let you know you are in the laundry room.

Cabinets in the laundry room. One of my favorite things is this wooden pop crate turned counter shelf.

An old ladder we found somewhere and Liv decorated.

This is an old wooden highchair that was used by my only sister, she was born in '72, so it's been around a while.

An old dresser base someone gave me long ago now acts as storage/shelf and hids Liv's computer desk.

Everyone has a fall decoration tree don't they?? LOL

Off-Grid sewing machine from the early 1900's, still works like a charm.

An odd chair with some old suite cases and a picture of Savannah.

1925 RCA Victor Victrola, in perfect working condition, that we use to play old Christmas records around Christmas. The shelf on the wall is whats left of a very old wooden chair, we cut the legs off and shortend the seat area and hung it on the wall, everyone loves it that sees is. Also and old tube type radio sets on the record player. I guess you could say it's an old time version of an entertainment center. haha!!

Every homestead must have a good heat source, and a good place to sit an smoke when it's too cold to go out on the deck.

My Command Post !!

Ok, here is the real Command Post, Liv's chair with an old ironing board/step stool/chair for a table.

Cedar chest that I picked up for $5.00 at a yard sale acts as our coffee table.

And ofcourse every homestead has a 42 inch plasma, the girls told me they did.

Well done, Liv!! Outstanding!
I am loving those red cupboards!

Liv has excellent taste! I love this look; it's so cozy and "real" and not sterile like some interiors. I have my grandma's Singer too and I love it. Hers still works too but I'm not much of a seamstress.

Anonymous, thank you, Liv is very talented.

MOH, We all need to clean house, we have 2 girls that you can clean after all day long.

Gen, Thanks, the cedar chest made a really nice table for us, good storage too. And the smell...mmmm.

Marie, thank you and glad you like the new look of the blog. Time for a change.

Cath, thanks a bunch, we love the red cupboards too, gonna do more of them red I think.

Amy, thank you, our house is cozy. We live in our house, some folks don't like to use their stuff, we do. Not gonna pay that much for a museum type house.

Country Girl, thanks for stopping by and glad you like the decor.

Wonderful to hear from you all, thanks for your comments.
