Our Second Home

A 1930s farmhouse gets a modern farmhouse update. Get the tour here.

Hi there! We moved into our 1930s farmhouse in the summer of 2017, and it is still a work in progress! I would love to take you on a tour as we update each room!


One of the main reasons we bought this house, other than my love of old buildings, is the property. The house sits on one acre and is surrounded by farmland. We are loving our little slice of nature and can't wait to update the exterior and landscaping in the spring!

Dining Room

The dining room is one of the first spaces to really feel like "us." This is a Christmas photo above, but you can see the style we are going for throughout the house. There is lots of black, wood tones, and neutral colors. In this room, we simply installed a new light fixture and bought some new chairs. See the whole space here.


The playroom is one of my favorite makeover to date. It was such a HUGE transformation! Now, it's the perfect playspace for our boys and is the perfect blend of vintage schoolhouse and modern farmhouse. You can read about the renovation process and see all of the udpates here.

Powder Room

The half bathroom on the first floor is still a work in progress, but it has come a long way already. So far we have painted the walls and cabinetry, upgraded the flooring, and installed new hardware. Check out the details here.
