Vintage Homesteading

While we’re not living out there yet, we have made steps to make such a notion somewhat comfortable…I’ve even started ‘nesting’, so to speak. My sewing machine is glad, as it’s been well loved, the end of which is not soon to come (note the curtains).

Sorry I don’t have a before picture, but here’s the outside & imagine all the cushions covered in the lovely ‘before’ upholstery. Not the worst I’ve seen, but there was a lot of unidentified staining….ew.

thoughts on what should replace the hunter green? goldish yellow? off white linen? avocado green (the color of the “appliances”)

    Do we get to paint the "wood" walls? I love me a good facelift! I really love the fabric you chose.

    I agree. Start with a fresh paint job if you can, then go from there! Looking good, though. 🙂

    Creamy yellow curtains would be really pretty! The cushions look cute!

    oh that takes me back to family vacations when I was young 🙂

    Something light, a pale creamy yellow (like K. said)

    I love paint you can change so much, quickly and fairly inexpensively. Have fun, T. 🙂

    Love the fabric you chose ! I agree paint would be awesome then pull a color out of the fabric you've used. Sweet !
