I haven't spend much time in blogland lately but I've been busy the last few days. Do you remember a few weeks back when I posted about my new love? Ya know, this...
Well, we bought it... not just the floor, but the house it's located in. See that little window upstairs, that's where my love, the flowered floor lives... above the lovely 60's era front porch add on.
Yup, Red Gate Farm has a new project. I know what you're thinking and nope, Red Gate Farm is here to stay, but we're taking the work crew "on the road". I'm thinking we're a little crazy with this notion since we have so many unfinished projects here at Red Gate Farm, but what the heck, lets throw common sense out that tiny little upstairs window!
Really, we actually stumbled across this place last summer while on vacation, which I might add, has obviously now gone down in history as the most expensive vacation, ever. But we realized we needed to save the old gal...
from indoor sliders and gold speckled, popcorn textured ceilings
cheap, knotted curtains over tattered window blinds
ceiling tiles, also with gold speckles (why did the 60's and 70's use gold speckles so much??)
70's kitchen carpet, over the coolest retro linoleum you've ever seen.
We'll try to salvage some of the left over vintage charm, like this wallpapered wall in the back of a closet
and update the 70's kitchen cabinets with some fabulous new paint colors
and put up a great new chandelier.
We'll clear out the trash, cobwebs and weeds, just for starters... I think "she's" smiling already.
Stay tuned friends, October is going to be a real roller coaster ride.
