I am retired and handicapped and my husband has his own disabilities - we had to have my daughter, boyfriend and 3 grandkids move into our small farmhouse built back in the late 1800's - we want to do a lot of the work we can ourselves but there are a lot of stumbling blocks and we aren't financially set to make a big project. We want to renovate the 2 story barn for my husband and myself to live in and allow the kids to stay in the farmhouse - we would appreciate any input you may offer to assist us.
I too think the simpler the beettr in the kitchen. In my last house in St. Louis, I went totally nuts and put way to much on the walls (too cutesy, shudder)I also have trouble starting a new decor project, I'll walk around and scratch my head, doing the project entirely in my noggin before...and then boom!
