If you’ve been following our cabin progress, you might recall that I’ve been collecting free doors for a secret project (to be revealed at a later date). We’ve rescued quite a few doors from curb piles, but this project is going to take a lot of doors, so I also asked friends and family to keep an eye out for us. That paid off last week. My sister-in-law called to say her friends had some doors they wanted to get rid of. So, I called them up, and we went over to pick them up. That trip netted three doors. Awesome!

Next stop on the home tour: our upstairs bathroom. It’s a beautiful, functional space now, but it wasn’t always that way, and getting it to this point took far more work than we ever bargained for. Come take a look.

Today, I want to show you my stockpile. It’s hands down the hardest-working square footage in our house, and a big part of how we save money. It includes plenty of food, like you’d expect, but it also includes some things that will probably surprise you. Come take a look.

MFH Home Tour: Youngest Daughter’s Room

Yesterday my 12-year-old daughter conned me into helping her clean her room. I was offered breakfast in bed, plus a batch of peanut butter brownies upon completion. Smart kid. Five and a half l-o-n-g hours later her room was finally back on track and I had my brownies.

Since kid rooms never stay clean for long, I figured this would be a good time to give you guys a tour of her room. Come take a peek.

Someone was vacuuming upstairs while I was working this morning. I didn’t give it much thought, until I took a break and discovered that the upstairs hallway had been cleaned. Miracles do happen! This has been a clutter hot-spot lately, so I figured I’d better grab my camera and give you guys a tour while it’s nice and neat. Up for a quick peek at our staircase and upstairs hallway? Follow me.

Finished Herb Garden
Cabin Herb Garden

We just got back from a couple days at our cabin, and I’m excited to report that we finally have an herb garden! That had been on my to-do list for way too long. My friend, Jo, finally got the ball rolling. On our first night up there, she gave me a bunch of herbs for my birthday. Mostly stuff that she had dug out of her own garden, with a couple store-bought plants sprinkled in. My kind of gift.

So, today we set out to get everything planted. I knew I wanted to do a raised bed, but we didn’t have any lumber on hand to build one. We considered driving to town for some boards, but that would have taken over an hour round trip, so we decided to get creative with what we had instead, and soon my husband returned with a cast iron bed and a plan.

Phew! It’s shaping up to be a busy summer. Today I helped cleaned out my husband’s uncle’s basement, but before I headed over to do that, I snapped some pictures of our master bedroom to share with you guys. Ready for the next edition of our home tour? Let’s do it!

Cheap Paint = More Cabin Progress

A terrific paint sale triggered another round of work at the cabin. Lowes had their half-pint paint samples on sale for $.99 each (with no limit) a few weeks back, and it didn’t take a frugal girl like me long to figure out that if I got four half-pints, I’d have a quart of paint for $3.96, rather than the $30 something that they sell their quarts for. So, I headed over, and picked up enough paint to redo my latest round of curb finds and yard sale scores.

Vintage Camp Chair Makeover

I bought this vintage folding camp chair at a yard sale a year or so back (I think I paid all of $1 for it). It wasn’t ripped at the time, but it tore shortly after we started using it. I guess it had dry-rotted.

Since the frame was still in good shape, I decided to make a new seat for it.

New Year’s Curb Finds

Normally the winter months are not good for curb shopping, but January is kind of the exception. People get busy on their New Year’s resolutions to clean out their homes and get organized, and suddenly good stuff starts to pile up at the curb. Really good stuff.

Like the stuff that my husband snagged on Friday while taking the kids to school. Here’s what I found waiting for me downstairs when I crawled out of bed.

I’ve gotten lots of compliments on my holiday wreath, and you know where I got it? A curb pile. Yep, it was someone else’s cast off. Pretty lucky find, since it fits in perfectly with the red, brown and gold color scheme that I chose this year.

If you love vintage and curb finds as much as I do, you’re going to love the rest of my Christmas decorations. Come take a quick tour of my house.
