I think it's time I let you all in on a little secret. Kind of a deep, dark, dirty little secret. Actually it is more of a weedy little secret at the moment.
You see, as much as I like to play the dutiful farmhouse wife on my blog, (the small town girl who knows about watering turns and how to gossip at the post office and exactly when hunting season starts), there is actually a little more to the story.
Well, if you haven't lost all respect for me, I can explain. My husband and I were married about five years ago and bought a wonderful house near the city. We did a lot of remodeling, moved in and called it home. But the thought of his old farmhouse in the country kept calling to us. So 18 months ago we packed up and began the remodel journey in the country.
We rented out the city house when we left, but now the renters have moved to their own home..... but......the weeds are still here. So that's where I have been for the last couple of weeks, trapped in the garden of weedin' with no internet connection. I've missed out on a lot of your great blog posts, and link parties and commenting. But the weeds are almost gone. And looking around I forgot how much I like this city house and how many great projects we finished. So while we are here I decided to share a few of our makeover projects on the city house.
Here is the line-up for next week...
MONDAY: Backyard makeover
TUESDAY: Painting stripes in the diningroom
WEDNESDAY: Fireplace makeover
THURSDAY: DIY refinishing oak kitchen cabinets
FRIDAY: Master bath remodel
THURSDAY: DIY Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing
FRIDAY: Master Bath Makeover
I can't wait to catch-up on all my favorite blogs, and return all your kind comments and get back to my blogging life. Thanks so much for being patient with me.
So now that you know the truth about my weedy past, and the city house I left behind I hope you'll still see us through on our farmhouse revival. Someday I'm sure I'll be completely countrified, but until then it's been fun looking back on all we did when we were full-time city dwellers.
Hope you can join me next week at the city house,
Sharing over at Jann's blog.
PS: Our house is back up for rent if you are in the market for a place in Salt Lake City. You can contact Key Renter for the details. (How's that for a little shameless self-promotion?)
