Foreclosure Turned Farmhouse Home Tour
Hello and welcome!! I’ve got a treat for you today, please welcome Wendy from Life On The Shady Grove. I met Wendy on Instagram long ago, and was drawn to her sweet spirit… and her vintage scale collection. I adore how she blends what feels like a classic cottage style, effortlessly with vintage finds and lots of white. She has created a bright, warm, welcoming home with a comfy cottage-farmhouse vibe!
Hello there and welcome to the Shady Grove!
Where we take our front porch sittin’ seriously.
I’m so excited to show you around!
When we found this house, it was a foreclosure, and we have had a blast transforming it into “our” home.
I’ve been married to my best friend for 26 years and we have 5 amazing kids, one daughter-in-love, one future daughter-in-love and 7 grand pups that stay at Grammy daycare on the Shady Grove.
I love to create and recreate, over and over again! And you’ll see that during this tour.
Welcome to our dining room.
This space evolved a lot over the years, we added an 11 foot dining table, new chairs, and two vintage furniture pieces.
Here I show how I’ve used fun quilts and fabrics to bring fun color into our all white home.
White is the perfect backdrop — it makes it easy to change things around!
Moving furnishings about, and changing fabrics and finishes is a great way to alter the look and feel of your home. Notice how the whole feel of our home changed with our curtain swap!
You can do this as often as you like! In any room too.
Welcome to our kitchen!
And the updated version, when my taste changed…
Thank you so much for having me today! In sharing our home, my hope is that people will be inspired to create in their homes and that everyone who visits the Shady Grove will know that they are loved madly and extravagantly by their creator.
