An update on the 1800’s farmhouse project! We want to share with you the most recent pictures from the furniture installation. The “farmhouse” themed furniture creates an inviting and restful space. The leather wing chair, country occasional chair, and burlap ottoman (shown in another picture below) came from Hickory Chair.
The country occasional chair (shown above on the left) is adapted from an antique rocking chair which is just perfect for the room.
Displayed in front of the TCS straight arm sleeper is a unique coffee table. What looks to be a coffee table is actually an incredible 80 year old find. This piece is actually a hand made flour bin with original hand-wrought-iron handles. With an addition of a custom iron base and hand-cut glass this Sarreid piece is also doubled as a display case for the antiques and mail found within the house during demolition. (Keeping all the artifacts from the house were important to the client.)
The other antiques and paperwork displayed throughout the house are framed by Bev’s Fine Art .
(Above left) We can’t do our job with out him, Lewis our installer hangs framed antiques on a wall just outside the bathroom door. (Above right) Ashley places old mail, newsletters, and receipts from the 1930’s, ’40’s and ’50’s into the flour bin coffee table.
The original door hardware is replaced with an almost exact replica. (Shown above). The cream porcelain knobs give this farmhouse a touch of personality.

The master bedroom is a great retreat for guests or even the out-of-town grandparents. The poster bed and beautiful arched armoire from Hickory White were finished in distressed woods, while the client’s mother saved a stunning floor length mirror and rocking chair to help complete this cozy bedroom.
The exterior of the house, the kitchen island, and landscaping are still under construction, but as soon as these items are done this farmhouse project will be complete! We will continue to update you on the progress.
