When we bought our home almost 16 years ago, It was the typical out dated cape code. That needed a ton of updates. Back then I didn't have a clue what I wanted to do with the house nor was I one to really care about those things. Blogging wasn't a huge thing back then and DIY'ers where just starting to make a wave on TV and the internet. With all the home improvement shows and now decorating magazines I think I finally settled on a style I love. Our home has been through so many decorating makeovers. I'm glad I have finally found what I can call my style.
It's finally starting to feel like Christmas. The weather stayed warm right up till around Thanksgiving, Making it hard to get into the grove of the Holiday's. The snow has been flying and the mercury has been dropping. Finally after a crazy cold day, I got to sit down and wrap up some new art designs.
Who starts a project during the holiday season. Well, us of course. We set out to tackle a beautiful batten board wall and update our living room fireplace. The outcome was so much more then I had hoped for. I love our finished living room now. The project took us way longer then I had wanted it to, but the end result was well worth it.
