HEARTH ROOM MINI MAKEOVER
The two photos, above, show the hearth room as it appeared before.
The wall color is Sherwin Williams Sticks and Stones. The pantry wall SW Antique White.
Sticks and Stones remains in the hearth room. The pantry wall was painted SW Nomadic Desert because it joins the living room, which was recently painted Nomadic Desert.
The cabinet top rooster and hen have been replaced by crocks, as shown in the following photos.
The flooring is ceramic from Mohawk.
The Windsor chair is one of two, custom made for us in 2003 by The Windsor Chair Shop, Clarksville Missouri.
This room, as it appeared in the before shots, was featured in the April 2012 issue of Romantic Homes Magazine, Site Seeing.
There were two wing chairs in the hearth room since we moved here. When it was time to replace those chairs, we chose to move the sofa from the living room and bought one chair for the hearth room.
We moved the round table and chairs to J’s lodge, to be used for games or meals, in that room.
We purchased another sofa for the living room. Seen HERE.
The Saint James Winery (American Gothic) poster is from a wine label. It was a give away with a case of wine, when the label (used for the St James Country Wines) was retired. Saint James is one of our favorite Missouri wineries.
The chair was the only new purchase for this room.
Found the chair at Value City Furniture.
Looking towards the kitchen and breakfast room from the hearth room.
The small red table is just the right size for a cup of coffee. It is a garage sale find, J painted.
Collections of crocks and pitchers sit atop the kitchen cabinets.
Framed photos, taken in winter, of the lane that led to our home on the farm.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS?
This is growing beside the patio, under a Japanese Maple.
The bloom looks like Queen Anne’s Lace or Dill, however, the foliage does not look like either of those plants. The foliage is similar to the ground cover around the tree. We live in a rural area where Queen Anne’s Lace grows prolifically. This does not have the ferny sort of foliage of Queen Anne’s Lace.
