Spent a truly glorious evening on Friday at Ward Hall in Georgetown, Kentucky. The entire 12,000 sqft “summer home” is absolutely breathtaking. But I simply could not contain myself over this basement kitchen. Staged to look like a working room from 1857, just look at everything! 👀 👀 👀 all those woven seats make my heart sing!! #wardhall #nineteenthcentury #oldkitchenstuff

Two weeks in on #behindthesquare2018 and you guys have such GREAT PICTURES!! Here’s a little throwback to the master bedroom. This is the second room we did but the first room we completely finished (still have to sand the floors in the halls). Swipe to see the before picture. Can you believe this is the same view?!? This house has such great bones but needs some SERIOUS love. Fortunately we are just the people for the job. 😃 #afterandbefore #hagueblue

It’s been over a year since we started renovating this house. We started with this wall in the upstairs hall. I still have an absurd amount of adoration for my staircase. 😍 #ihavethisthingwithstairs #victorianstaircase #oldwoodwork
If you’ve been around here for a minute, you may have noticed that I am a knowledge fiend. I LOVE to know things, and I love to know how to do things. It never gets old to me. My mother has been saying for a while that she’d love someone to weave her kitchen chairs in a natural fiber. One quick trip to YouTube University and I was immediately certain I was The Person to do this weaving. So last weekend, I wove these two wooden chairs in a herring bone pattern with 3/4” splint reed. I took them out on the porch today to give the reed a light sanding (it gets all these splintery little fibers coming off) and I was absolutely GOBSMACKED when I saw them on the porch. They look so...right. These chairs are probably similar to what was used on the wooden porch in 1905 when this house was built. And this is probably the first time since the first owner passed away anything like them has been on this porch. Oh how I wish I could know what this place looked like back then. Also this has completely clarified what kind of porch furniture I am looking for now. #splintchair #handcrafting #howitwasdone

Every evening the westerly light comes through the window and lights up the mantle. And every single evening it makes me go 😍. #hagueblue #darkinteriorstyle #moodywalls
Hey. HEY. WHAT’D YOU DO THIS WEEKEND?! I recaned a chair. By hand. By myself. And if I do say so myself, it turned out pretty darn nice!! Only five more to go. 😂 #chaircaning #lostarts #liketheolddays

The door to the furnace closet under the stairs is one of the sweetest in the house. It’s made from tongue and groove bead board planks and still has the original shellac on it. You can see on the right the finish has darkened from a hundred years of hands pushing it closed. It’s also the only door in the house that retains all the original trim, albeit painted white. While there were not enough rosettes to recreate the trim in the whole house, we saved it in this one corner. Partly out of respect to the original owner, and partly because the stair trim is notched to fit. Either way, I love all the detail in this space. I never tire of looking at it. #originalwoodwork #beadboarddoor #whitetrimwooddoor

Did you think we were done Christmas decorating?! Absolutely NOT!! All that kept me going when I was striping 47 layers of paint and wall paper off this mantle was the though that ONE DAY I can decorate this majestic beauty for Christmas. TODAY IS THAT DAY. Greens are more cedar and pine. All held together with florist wire. And did you notice IT TOUCHES THE GROUND?! #victorianchristmas #christmasmantledecor #realgarland

It’s officially Christmas in the house and I. AM. SCREAMING. 😍😍😍 Can you even stand it?!? The greens are pine and cedar branches I clipped from the property. I also grabbed dry thistles, cornflower, and some pretty red bushes on the edge of the fields. Everything got bundled together with florist wire and attached to the bannister.  I absolutely CANNOT EVEN with the draping beads. Or the bows. OR ANY OF IT. #victorianchristmas #naturalchristmasdecor #naturedecorations #vintagechristmasdecor

Is the kitchen currently terrible? YOU BETCHA. Does that stop me from lovingly caressing my table, knowing one day he will have a kitchen worthy of them swirly legs? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Part of #behindthesquare2018 is to celebrate those great pieces that you love but maybe don’t get to shine just yet in your renovation. What’s your favorite piece that’s waiting for a glamour shot? #antiquetable #handturnedlegs

Sometimes an after picture for one project is the before picture of another. When we refinish the floors in the study, we’ll also refinish the halls and stairs. Will I have to walk outside to get to my kitchen for a week? Yes. Do I mind? Not in the slightest. Bring me more glossy wood floors. #douglasfirflooring #stepbysteprenovation #ihavethisthingwithstairs

If you guys are new around here, this is Brandon. He’s...uh...pretty much my favorite person on the face of the planet. Which is fortunate since he’s my husband. 😀 He’s been working so hard on this room recently. As of now 95% of the study is shimmed!! Three studs and one corner left plus the bathroom wall. Such huge progress this weekend!! #behindthesquare2018 #oldhousecommunity #doitrightonce

You guys are absolutely KILLING IT with #behindthesquare2018!! Thank you so much! We love seeing all of the stuff behind the scenes...we’re a community of old house people here and we can see the potential with you!! Here is an angle of the hall I don’t post often. The hall is mostly done, the floor still needs to be refinished, but I always try to crop out the door at the end. Why? This leads to the study. And it’s currently blocked off because...well...we’re renovating that part!! Does that mean this end of the hall doesn’t deserve some attention? Absolutely not!! What angle have you been avoiding because it’s just not quite as good as you’d like it? #behindthesquare2018 #renovationprogress #oldhousecommunity

Pssst...did y’all hear? Things just got EXCITING!! Katie of @thecopefarmhouse and I have launched a hashtag challenge for this December!! #behindthesquare2018 Because for every after shot, there is always a before shot. The upstairs hall renovation finished the in April (minus the floor) and I haven’t shown this door open because it leads to one heck of an ugly bathroom. WITH CARPET. But you know what? It’ll get done. We’re just not there yet Renovating a house is a massive, ongoing, time consuming, labor intensive process. So many decisions have to be made and things have to be figured out that it’s just simply not feasible to post a new perfectly styled, finished, decorated space every single day. For this whole upcoming month, we want to dive BEHIND those pictures. What parts of your house aren’t done? What have you not shown because it’s not finished? What project are you elbow deep in right now? Show us!! Use the hashtag above and tag me or Katie so we can see what you’re doing!! This old house community is a mighty force of support and inspiration. Let’s harness that this December and see what’s going on #behindthesquare. #oldhousecommunity

Are you guys following @ladydukart? Living for that #ladydukartlight she’s so good at getting. She’s the coolest girl restoring the best house and the best trim in ALL THE LAND. And her photography is just RIDICULOUS. Go check her out and give her some love. She deserves it. (And PS if you know any other awesome old house accounts, tag them below. I’m dying for some yummy old house goodness.) #oldhousecommunity #victorianstaircase #savethishouse

First real snow and I am LIVING FOR IT. Counting down the days until we can decorate for real Christmas (I would do it now but, you know, live greenery). But for now, a little tree with a string of LED lights significantly ups the cozy level in this room. Please note that beautiful wood floor is approximately 39 degrees colder than the ambient air and will, in fact, freeze water on contact. #insulationlove #oldhousecharm #woolsockweather

Took advantage of that @houseofantiquehardware sale going on to get all the hinges and cabinet hardware for the bathroom, mudroom, and study. These latches on the master bedroom chimney closet are so perfect. Obviously the rest of the house needs them as well. (PS. Sale is still going on if you need stuff! And obviously you need stuff.) #hagueblue #oldhardware #builtincloset

Changing up the mantle in preparation for the holidays. Still have a few weeks until I go full Christmas. But there’s nothing wrong with just a little hint... #empirefurniture #mantlesandmirrors #christmasisafeeling
