Spring at the Farmhouse Tour...

The smell of hyacinths, chirping chicks covered in baby down, little boys playing baseball in the yard, cheerful cherry blossoms lining the gravel driveway... It's spring at the farmhouse!

Well it's almost spring at the farmhouse, but it is spring in the farmhouse, and I'm so glad you stopped by. It's an honor for me to be joining my talented friends on this tour today. If you're making the tour loop, you may be coming from Jersey Girl In The SouthEither way, you'll find links to all of the charming home tours at the end of this post... 


I love the beautiful simplicity of farmhouse style. And spring is no exception. This time of year, I enjoy incorporating flowers in woven baskets, herbs in galvanized buckets, and flowering branches from the yard.



I recently sanded down the white painted top of our dining room table. I'm really happy with the added warmth of the raw wood. An extra-long European grain sack was used to make the table runner, which provides more texture in this space.



A little stack of nests carries me back to simpler times in childhood, exploring the wonder of nature. 
And now my joy is in watching our three sons do the same... when they're not tackling each other. ;)

 


Our family room is where we like to gather. More whites, woods and metal for a casual farmhouse feel.



A little collection of straw garden hats and fresh tulips in a vintage tub create a simple spring welcome in our entryway.


From our little coop to yours...



Charlotte (below) and I thank you for stopping by!



I'll be sharing more spring at our farmhouse in the weeks to come.

And now, I hope you'll hop over to visit Kelly at The Tattered Pew

She recently used paint to transform her home. I think you are going to love it...

  6. Your table transformation is genius and just so pretty. I really admire your softer interpretation of farmhouse style. I call it romantic farmhouse. Spare, but so much more than simple.

  7. Everything looks so wonderful. I especially love your entrance way and the tub with tulips. Just one question, did you have to finish your dining table top after sanding it? Thanks for sharing... you are a sweetie.

    1. Thank you Pamela. I have not yet finished or sealed our table. We have lived with it for a couple of weeks without any staining. I'm not anxious to seal it because it seems to almost always darken the wood, and I love the color it is now. I'm just sure to wipe off any water fairly quickly. So far, so good! :)

    1. So nice to hear from you Cindy! Thank you for your concern for our boys. I will take it as a warning :) and just removed the branches... those were pretty stiff. Our cherry blossoms are a softer branch, so they don't worry me. But I think you are right with these. Take care and enjoy the coming of spring on your beautiful farm!
