Remember when I said goodbye to the blogging world a while back? Well it didn't stick. I found out about an Epic Room Makeover Contest and just had to return in order to enter my kitchen.
My house is a historic home and I love it. Well, some of it. It was built around 1883. I have been doing some research and discovered that one of the first families that lived in my house (or do I live in theirs?) was the family of David and Jane Stagg. They lived here with their 8 children.
This is a picture of my house in the 1950's. I so badly want to find a picture of the Staggs in front of the home to feature in my living room.
It is so exciting to catch little glimpses of the people who came before us. Here is a peek at my treasures that we have found in our yard. I keep them in a little wooden box. Mandi, if I win I would love your help creating a way to show these off.
And I am not sure what to do with this...
I have great South facing windows in my kitchen. I need help enhancing the full length window that my sink is in front of. I don't know if an apron sink or something would help?
The kitchen is such a small space that storage, dining, prep and clean up are all problems. Especially if there is more than one person in the kitchen. If you sit at the table and someone needs to get into the bedroom or pantry you all have to stand up to let the person by. The oven and dishwasher block the walkways as well. I would be so excited to see what Mandi from www.vintagerevivals.com would do with my kitchen to help me make the most of it. I hope that she is up for this true vintage revival :) This historic home is a gem that is worth saving.
