(you can scroll over the photo to see what our living room looked like before we knocked down a wall :)
That table is with out question my favorite pieces of furniture! It was handcrafted with love by my Pops (an endearing term I use for my step father) and my older brother. I have longed dreamed of having a farm house table to be set under my milk glass chandelier and he built it for me! If I had any idea how much work it was going to be, I probably would have never asked! But I am secretly so glad I did! Because I can't even walk by it without smiling.
He was hardly able to walk after long days of working on that dream of a table. And if you look closely you can see on the bench he put his brand on it :)
Something else I love is the painting over our fire place. It is a replica of the one that hung in my great grandmothers living room. I had been hinting to my Mom for ages that I would like it! I was thrilled when she gave it to me...They of course wouldn't let me carry it on the airplane so we paid a girl heading up to utah to bring it back with her in her tiny car :)
Jett taking a peek in the mirror and saying "Dad??" Close enough buddy!!
and of course I had to include the last two photos of what our home looked like when we purchased it! Kyler still wishes I would let him put a TV above the fireplace, like the previous owners had... ;)
Thanks for letting me share a bit more of my home and the things I love inside of it!
