Fall Foliage, Home Tours, and Curtain Options: Friday Finds

Happy Friday the 13th! Got anything spooky going on this weekend? I’ll likely be painting at some point. We have a lot to do in the house before the big holidays arrive. It’s hard to believe October is halfway over. Once Christmas is over, time will slow down and winter will feel like forever. LOL.

Are you ready for some inspiration and home decorating ideas? Keep reading for this week’s Friday Finds!

First up is an expansive Connecticut home that used to be two separate cabins. The result of this merger is absolutely stunning.

Enjoy this beautifully rustic Maine kitchen that has the most fabulous farmhouse table ever. It makes me want to spend the afternoon baking bread.

  1. I loved the quick paint jobs ideas- I’ve been thinking about doing that with my stairs- old 1880 house- but I have two cats and a dog- they don’t understand the concept of “every other step”, lol

  2. I never thought to ask you for ideas on this topic: my 1880s house was “updated” over the decades. Probably in the 1930’s, the living room had a makeover- with a so called “balloon” ceiling. Also called a stretched cloth ceiling, basically. canvas/cloth covering the ceiling, painted and when it dried, was taught. Mine has some damage, and there is zero info out there about how to fix it. Any ideas? I’m thinking I might just need to have it taken down and deal with the expense.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

  3. I was busy and forgot about Friday finds, but I saw it, and it was so good. Sorry, but I can’t see the house as a cottage, too big but, pretty.
