Happy Anniversary

In honor of our one year anniversary of buying Beechwood, we’ve decided to post a bunch of photos.  After lots of late nights and too many gallons of paint, this is where we’re at. Warning: the before shots are frightening and may not be suitable for owners of new construction.  More posts to come.

Entryway After

Photos are from Christian's Great-Grandmother's farm in NH, refinished wood floors, and the original entryway mosaic tile.

Family shield on the window in the hall closet and the lion on the front door.

Canvas collage made with a photo of Nicole's Grandparents, Christian's photo from St. Curvy, and a sunburst mirror.

Display in the foyer complete with a little buddha purchased in San Francisco, rocks from the beach in Nice, France from our honeymoon, and our wedding photo.

Mean old Doris loved her yellow:

End table vignette, complete with a ship on canvas picked up at the Royal Oak Antique & Garage Sale, a lamp frankensteined together by Christian, and a little Seth Thomas clock from an estate sale.

Morgan sofa in linen from Macy's, Allegra Hicks for West Elm flower pillow, and a mid-century modern couple and their cat.

Seth Thomas clock picked up at Fred's Unique Furniture and two clocks on the mantle. One is from Vogue Vintage, the other from an estate sale. None of them work, but we like them anyway.

Another old photograph from Christian's Great-Grandmother's farm hangs above the mantle.

Our wedding place cards framed on an end table.

Books picked up at an estate sale... The bird is from Target.

A cool piece of art from the DIY Fair in Ferndale.
