Retaining Wall! – Part 3

CHECK. OUT. THIS. WALL. Y’ALL. I love love love love how this ended up!!!  It protects my beloved boxwoods from eroding, it delineates the yard from the gravel so we won’t have mulch or grass spilling into the driveway, and it really adds some class (I think) to the whole driveway and therefore property overall.  Something...

Retaining Wall! – Part 2

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re all having a good week.  Charlottesville weather has been so absurd lately… the weather forecast changes minute by minute on sunshine/ thunderstorms/ sprinkles.  We’re getting a LOT of thunderstorms in our neck of the woods and it’s been far from fun, but I know we had a dry winter and...

Making a Shed for Kune Kune Piglets

Happy Memorial Day Y’all! Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend. As promised, here are some photos of the shelter David built for Tinkerbell and Mr. Smee.

Making a Pig Fence

Ahhhh! The piglets are seriously the cutest things ever! I love them, and I have definitely spent way more time watching them than I should have/ imagined I would! I wanted to take a minute and backtrack to share how David and I put in their pig fence. First of all we had to decide...

Hi! & Decorated Master Bedroom

Hi friends!  Goodness has it been a while since this blog saw any action.  I hope everyone’s enjoyed having winter in the springtime… I know we haven’t… we are soooooo ready for warmer weather and being able to be outside.  Hopefully today’s snow was the last for the year!  In the meantime we’ve been pretty...

Forest Style Playroom

I hope everyone is having a lovely start to their 2018! It’s –as always in our house– a work in progress, but I thought I’d share how our playroom is looking these days! First of all, above is what the room looked like when we bought the house.  It appears to have wood paneling but...

TGI2018!

Dear A Farmhouse Reborn Readers, Thank you for bearing with me as I made it through one heck of a year.  As I’m sure many of you are, I am excited about the idea of the fresh start that comes with the beginning of a new year.  2017 was without a doubt the hardest year...

Making Garlands Out of Greenery

Well, our little Wilson turned one this past weekend!  He was also dedicated at our church (kind of the equivalent to a baby’s baptism).  We had a lovely party for him with family coming from allllll over the place and I really felt the love for this little guy.  I drew upon that love today...

Well it certainly has been a while since I last wrote a blog post!  I hope everyone had a LOVELY Thanksgiving.  We were blessed with lots of family coming to Charlottesville and it was one of the best Thanksgivings I can remember.  Wilson is soooo happy and while we still have some hurdles we’re working...

Oh my goodness y’all look at this– the boxwoods have been moved, and now there is an EXIT to the circular driveway! Just to recap: here is the before layout and the after:   SO COOL!  The shape is actually taking place!  We weren’t home when the crew actually picked up and moved the boxwoods...
