Not an Empty Room

Meet:  Misty ~ "We live in a 214-year-old house that belonged to my husband's grandmother. We try our best to retain all of the unique characteristics of our home while updating and making it ours. It's a lot of work (restoration, rewiring) and a lot of fun!"

Blog:  Not an Empty Room

Visit Misty to see the details of all of their HARD work!  They're DIY super stars over there!

Awesome DIY Projects:
Outdated bathroom gets a pretty modern farmhouse style makeover! I love the new distressed black vanity and mirrors, pretty window (with a beautiful view) and the awesome barn door!

Complete demo, gut and rebuild...(brave!)


(Makes me wish we'd finally get our dining room track up so I can share. LOVE sliding doors.)  This bathroom barn door adds a farmhouse charm to her old house.

Great idea for kids' art work too!

There's more to see!  Pop over to say "Hi" to Misty and check out their great DIY projects! If you're like me, Misty had you at 214-years-old.  I love the history, the many corner fireplaces, the beautiful floors, dutch door...I could go on and on. :)

Thanks Misty (and Charles) for sharing!  Your dedication and hard work is paying off - you're putting new life into that old home and I love the transformation!  Great job!

I am going to go and visit her blog. I have been trying to find ideas for our house even though it is "newer" than hers! Love the old homes!

I cant wait to head over there! Our home was built in 1860 and while I love alot of the fabulous ideas I see in the blogworld, many/most dont apply to a home where you're trying to retain old character in a super old home. I too have a corner fireplace, hidden doors and pantry, original woodwork on the entire 1st level and an entire 3rd floor attic. So off I go to get some inspiration! Thanks for posting:)
